A traditional Moroccan pattern, Classic Alhambra B, was the choice for this residential bathroom floor. The tile has a modern, clean look that isn't "too busy" because it's executed with two colors. The tile provides a pleasing look that works well with the design of the whole bathroom - adding a touch of color and pattern. The design team at Lauren Rubin Architecture worked with the homeowner to create the updated look for this bathroom. Lauren Rubin Architecture, based in New York City, New York, is an architecture and design firm specializing in clean modernism with a warm design aesthetic.

Avente had the pleasure of working with Lauren Rubin Architecture on this project. Lauren Rubin Architecture made sure the homeowner would be thrilled with the floor tile. First, a sample was procured to confirm color choice. Additionally, with the help of Avente, the differences between cement tile and ceramic tile were explained.

Cement tiles differ from ceramic and porcelain tiles. For example, cement tile must be sealed. Additionally, the shipping costs will be greater especially on small projects because cement tiles are heavy. In fact, a single tile weighs over three pounds. For this project, only 50 sq. ft. were required and the cost of freight was about 25% of the total order cost. Before you decide to use cement tile, there are several factors you should consider. Our helpful guide, Cement Tile: 7 Things You Need to Know before You Buy explains these differences and it's FREE! You'll find answers to help you decide if cement tile is the right choice for small projects like the bathroom shown here.
