Moroccan Cement Tile is Perfect Pattern for Bath Floor

Posted by William Buyok on

With its classic Moroccan cement tile pattern, our Mission Marrakech is a perfect choice for this pool bathroom's floor. The mix of cool blues and complementary brown and yellow maintains a sophisticated vibe that is soothing, echoing a water theme. The cement tile pattern pays tribute to the elaborate Islamic geometric patterns often created with Zellige terracotta tiles. A unique style of mosaic tile in Arabic patterns that could be found decorating fountains, walls and floors throughout Morocco. 


You can see why the homeowner choose this tile for her new home's pool bathroom floor in Houston, Texas. Her choice of jewel blue hues like aqua, peacock and blue allowed this traditional, geometric pattern to be customized for a cool and refreshing design. I also love the use of the pillowed ceramic tile on the counter. Avente's Pillow Chiclet tiles in Aqua and River create a mosaic effect that not only balances with the floor mosaic, but also takes a design cue from traditional Moroccan mosaic tiles.

If you've never seen Zellige tiles used for a mosaic, then here's a great example of the mesmerizing patterns and intricate level of detail and craftsmanship ubiquitous to Morocco. The complex, intertwined sacred geometry is painstakingly worked out in every detail.
