Using handmade encaustic cement tiles to frame a fireplace or hearth adds long-lasting beauty and interest to any homes décor, be it contemporary or traditional.
The subtle tones of our Traditional Yuna Border cement tile, used to accentuate our clients fireplace, include two neutral tones from our Heritage Solid Color Tile collection Heritage Cocoon and Heritage Tan.
By using earthy brown tones, or other monochromatic color scheme, you can create an understated, yet elegant, look. Consider also a two-tone color scheme if you'd like to pair cement tile with natural stone. All aspects of the space will work together to create a seamless and cohesive design.
Moreover, with its 8"x8" format, our Traditional Yuna cement tiles perfectly frame the fireplace. Keep in mind that Yuna is a border pattern that includes corners. It is important to layout the design so the horizontal pattern is not cut. Start by centering an 8"x8" tile in the center of the firebox and running as close to the edge without cutting.
Lastly, Traditional Yuna cement tile is part of our "design line," therefore, sample stock is generally not available for immediate shipment. However, patterns can be customized with any color from the Heritage Color Palette. After choosing colors, we recommend that a "strike-off" or sample be made to verify the design on the tile before final production. Strike-offs can be made and delivered in a few weeks and shipped directly to you from the factory.
