Cement tiles in simple palettes and patterns show how flexible cement tiles can be. They work well in contemporary design - just like they do for traditional design styles.
Contemporary design style encompasses a range of styles developed in the latter half of the 20th century. Features include soft, rounded lines as opposed to the crisp lines seen in modern design. Further, contemporary interiors also contain neutral elements and bold color, while focusing on the basics of line, shape and form.
Focusing first on color, contemporary interiors feature tone-on-tone color palettes, relying heavily on brown, taupe, cream and pure white. Bursts of color can often be found on a single wall, accessories, or on an art piece. Next, as you can see from the pictured setting, contemporary furniture features clean lines and smooth surfaces without any carving or adornment. Light-colored woods, such as maple and birch, are preferred.
As for fabrics, natural is the preference (silk, wool, linen and cotton) not only for their textural aspects, but also for their inherent neutral hues. You can see how our handmade Traditional Malaga Cement Tile fits right in with its soft, rounded lines and tone-on-tone design. Remember, our tiles can be customized using our Heritage Cement Tile Color Palette. Because they are made-to-order, you can expect to receive them within 8-10 weeks.

Cement Tile Installation Tip
Keep in mind that each cement tile is individually handmade. Slight variations, such as in thickness, shade, imperfections, and irregular edges are inherent to this type of product. These characteristics add to the product's natural appeal and do not compromise the performance of the tile. It is very important when installing to pull pieces at random from different boxes in order to achieve a better distribution and blending of the material.
