Why we love the cement tile trend

Some trends stand the test of time for a reason. Case in point: cement tiles. Although they’ve been making waves in the decor scene for a long while now, in recent years these beautiful tiles have started popping up in a big way inside the most design-savvy contemporary homes across the globe.

And it’s not difficult to see why. Along with creating visually appealing interiors, cement tiles are crafted from natural materials, making them both extremely durable and eco-friendly. And considering they work wonders just about anywhere inside your home – from floors and walls, to fireplaces – it’s unsurprising that the popularity of cement tiles continues unabated.

Why opt for a boring backsplash when you can have a functional and beautiful one?  Although there’s nothingness about a tiled backsplash – they’re water-resistant and easy-to-clean -incorporating a more stylised scene behind your stove or sink is the perfect way to make a decorative statement.

Considering how strong and aesthetically pleasing encaustic tiles can be, it’s no wonder they’re being used more and more as an alternative to standard wood or porcelain tiles flooring all over the home, but particularly to make a statement in bathrooms.

Few things make a bigger impact in a bathroom than an exquisitely tiled wall. Unlike certain wallpapers and paints that can’t withstand moisture over time, cement tiles are totally waterproof, so you’ll never have to worry about the effects of humidity. 

Just because tiles are intrinsically practical, it doesn’t mean you can’t use cement tiles purely for aesthetic purposes. Along with looking and working beautifully on your kitchen walls and bathroom floors, a sophisticated tile motif can bring warmth and character to just about any surface inside your home and will last a lifetime.

Colourful Kitchens

While we are fans of the all white, minimalist look, nothing makes more of a statement than a bright and delightful kitchen.
The kitchen is where is all happens, and because it’s so action-packed and full of life, it’s the easiest place to add colour in your home. Whether it’s a tiled backsplash, or a wall painted in a saturated hue, let your kitchen tell a story.
We love the below Mexican tiles, all from Hadeda.
