Cement Tile Adds Warmth to Bedroom Design

Posted by William Buyok on

Cement tiles often dazzle with intricate patterns and lots of color. In this bedroom, cement tiles take their cue from a different aesthetic. To achieve a simple design or for small rooms, consider using two or three colors at the most. The modest design with its clean lines creates a comfortable, cozy feel for any room that will impress.

A triple border is used around the Isabella field tile that really works with the graphic pattern in a bright red. The triple border consists of Isabella in a reverse colorway between two rows of Alcala tiles. Two colors, Rouge and White, were used to create a strong graphical feel.

Cement Tile Design Tip

Achieve the classic look of a tile rug on your floor with a border. The border cement tiles should frame the patterned field tiles and provide interest without distracting the main field pattern. Remember, DO NOT run the border right to the edge of the room. Leave at least 3 to 4-inches between the outside border and edge of the room for a solid color "fill tile." Room edges are never square and cuts to the border will emphasize what is not square, thereby guaranteeing an unprofessional or undesirable result. Cutting the solid color "fill tile" doesn't show, and it allows the rug to sit perfectly in the room.
