Patio Touts Old World Allure with Cement Tile

Patio Touts Old World Allure with Cement Tile

What better way to add interest and long-lasting beauty to your patio than by using time-tested, handmade cement tile? By combining solid color tiles with patterned tile, you can create an effortless look that meets your design and color needs.

This patio features our vibrant Traditional Cement Tiles, a classic collection of historical cement tile patterns that are available in the standard 8"x8" format. Pictured here is our San Juan cement tile series. This installation takes its cue from adjacent terracotta-colored pavers and decorative accent tiles. Not only does this eco-friendly product offer refreshing bursts of colors such as Lilac and Cocoon, but it adds timelessness to any décor.

Design Idea for Cement Tile Patterns

By incorporating both patterned and solid-colored cement tiles, not only are you creating a visually appealing element, but youre also saving on the overall cost for the purchase of the cement tiles. Create the grid by combining quarter-design patterned cement tile with rows of solid color tiles. You can see the dramatic effects of color in similar installation using traditional San Juan cement tile in our Cement Tile Terrace with San Juan, Solid Color Tiles Design Idea, and this recent Project Pick: Traditional Alcala Cement Tile Patio.

Cement Tile Installation Tip

Although cement tile can be used outdoors, it cannot be used in frosty environments. If your project is located where frost or freezing temperatures are common, then we recommend using vitreous or porcelain tile for your project.

Also, cement tiles should be regularly mopped with clear water. A capful of liquid wax may be added to the water to improve the tiles' natural sheen. Also, never use acids to clean the tiles as they will sustain damage. Our cement tile FAQs will help answer most, if not all, your questions about cement tile.
