Custom Cement Tile Pattern Creates Contemporary Clubhouse Charm
Posted by William Buyok on
Despite hundreds of existing cement tile patterns, sometimes you just have to literally break the mold. In the commercial design of this golf clubhouse, a simple contemporary design was created specifically for this environment.
The designer hit a hole in one with a custom pattern that speaks volumes about the flexibility of cement tile and how well it works in contemporary design. The simplicity of the repeating golf ball pattern on different shades of verdant green is a simple, fun metaphor.
The design places large cement tile rugs in the lounge and dining area of the clubhouse. The clean lines of contemporary design are found everywhere in the details - from the furniture to the floor. The decision to use a custom cement tile pattern strategically on the floor is a smart choice. It creates intimate areas in the open, expanse of the room. Notice how nicely it pairs with the neutral, large-format natural stone flooring.
Cement tiles are created by pouring pigmented cement into a mold that creates the pattern on each tile. If the pattern is not a available in the factories repertoire of molds, it has to be created from scratch. Of course, there is additional cost and time to create a custom mold; but, the design will certainly be unique!
