Island Resort Uses Cement Tile to Set Restaurant's Theme

Large cement tile rugs in a traditional geometric pattern and classic black and white colorway welcome guests to this Japanese Steakhouse. The pattern is used to reinforce a motif used throughout the interior and is even found on carvings used to capture a style.

Pattern adds detail and interest and often, they secretly infuse subtle meaning into a design. While color creates the atmosphere, the pattern's motif provides a sense of style and place when executed correctly, especially in the design of commercial and hospitality restaurants.

In the image to the left, the large and oversized tile rug welcomes guests to this Japanese Steak House. A simple 4"x8" white border is used to frame the rug while providing a seamless transition to the large stone pavers.

In the case of our Geo 10 cement tile design, we have four overlapping/interlocking circles. As you can see, handcrafted cement tiles are capable of grabbing the attention of anyone who enters your establishment from the moment they walk in.

Cement Tile in Commercial Settings

Because they are so durable, cement tiles are the optimum choice for commercial, retail, or hospitality floor applications. The use of cement tile in high-traffic areas is quite common throughout Europe and South America where it can be seen on the floors of centuries-old churches, homes and businesses.

Most importantly, with these highly durable products comes longevity. Cement tiles have withstood centuries of wear, which is an important factor for commercial floors. Cement tile's strength lies in its beauty, its skid-resistance, and most notably, its ability to age gracefully since the manufacturing process dictates for the color layer to be 1/8"-thick. I'll be sharing more commercial installations of cement tile over the next few months.

Customization: A Designer's Dream

As you can see, Avente's Geometric line, or Geometric Cement Tiles, pay distinct homage to the time-tested and centuries-old patterns. Thankfully, with nearly 90 colors in the Heritage Cement Tile Color Palette, designers are given the freedom and flexibility to customize the tiles to fit any color scheme or style. They work equally well in contemporary and traditional styles. With all of the available options and choices for color and customization, it's easy to see why cement tiles are a designer's dream.
