Relief Cement Tiles Offer Relaxed Feel

Posted by William Buyok on

The Hispaniola Collection from Avente Tile is an exclusive, made-to-order series of beautiful handmade cement relief tiles inspired by the climate, textures and surroundings of the Dominican Republic. How familiar are you with relief cement tiles? We love them because of the texture and dimension they add to any room. 

First created by renowned sculptor Patricia Feinman, the Hispaniola collection allows you to create a cement tile that reflects your signature taste and style. The slight irregularities and subtle color changes inherit to handmade cement tiles only contribute to the tile's beauty.

In this powder room, Hispaniola relief tiles add texture, while complementing their surroundings.


The tiles in the Hispaniola Collection are made of white Portland cement, marble dust, and mineral pigments. To make each tile unique, the cement, marble and pigment mixture is poured into molds and then vibrated to remove air pockets, ensuring a solid product. Also, because the colors are embedded within the tile rather than painted on, the colors will neither fade nor deteriorate over time.

For design ideas, take a look at a beautiful bathroom tiled with Hispaniola tiles, as well as a gorgeous Hispaniola kitchen backsplash.

To further complement the collection of handmade relief cement tiles, Avente Tile recently introduced Elevations. Available in six shapes (Drop, Concave Rectangles, Petals, 3D Hexagon, Concave Hexagons, and Angles), this unique series is perfect for the design industry not only because it eloquently combines geometric shapes in both convex and concave relief, but it also offers an extensive color palette featuring more than 60 colors.
