Another Epic Roundup ...

Where To Buy Cement Tiles

It’s national cement tile day and we are celebrating by rounding up our favorite 35 online resources – not 35 tiles, mind you, 35 different designers/makers/artisans and sellers that have many, if not hundreds of cement tiles each. We were so sick of searching for these ourselves so we made it into a post for your (and our) convenience.

First off the rules: I’d warn you to make sure that the style of the house works with the style of the pattern so you aren’t dating yourself in 15 years. There are so many patterns out there now that work with almost every style, but my rule is to keep the tile reminiscent of the style of the house that it is in as that will give the tile longevity in style and design. That means don’t put something super graphic and modern in an antique craftsman.

Kitchens: As we mentioned before the cement tile trend is booming in kitchens and for a very good reason. These tiles whether on the floor, as a backsplash, or even an accent wall are high impact and add instant ‘wow’ to what can be a typically boring kitchen recipe.

I used them in this kitchen, above, that was installed in a 1920’s Spanish style renovation. It is still one of my favorites. Note: the floor tiles weren’t properly sealed the first time (if at all, I don’t remember and it wasn’t my contractor) so they got really dirty really fast. I had to have them professionally scrubbed and then resealed but they definitely still had a lot of wear from those couple days of no-sealant days. It actually looks great because its an old house but if you had a new house you might not be so into it.

Bathrooms: I just installed  from Erin Adams design in my own bathroom and my search for those is what started this whole thing. Most cement tiles will work either on the floor or walls of your bathroom, but check with the manufacturer as some tiles will need to be sealed before they get a lot of foot traffic and water on them. Again, seal them after install and ideally keep sealing every couple years as needed.

Entry: Yes. You can put cement tiles in your entry but it certainly sets the vibe for the whole house. If you have again a Mediterranean or a Spanish style house then go for it, but if you have an English Tudor, then be careful what pattern you go for and choose one that has a more delicate, traditional feeling. Also anything too light or simple will get worn easier so go for darker/busier so that the wear and tear doesn’t stand out so much.

Outdoors: This is where we are used to seeing cement tiles because it really does wear so nicely over the years. It can get expensive if you are doing a large area or don’t already have a hard surface (concrete) to lay the tiles on, but if you have a small courtyard or a little patio off your bedroom or living room (we can all dream) then cement tile can be just the ticket to create that little bit of visual wow.

Now that they are seemingly everywhere it seemed time to round up the largest resource ever to be on the internet of cement tiles. We chose our favorite from the resources, but there are many more so click on into the site to start shopping.

  1. Hi Emily,

    Baldosas Cordova, , makes cement tiles in Chile since 1930!!!

    xoxo

    Oana

  2. THESE ARE SO BEAUTIFUL! I have 1 tiny bathroom I hope to remodel sooner rather than later and I love all of these!

  3. Yes! This is awesome…I had such a hard time finding good cement tiles when I was looking last year! I ended up going with some black and white patterned tiles from Overstock for our fireplace and a small backsplash behind our range. I liked the tiles I picked, but honestly it was the free shipping that sold me – when I priced tiles from other suppliers, the shipping was more than the actual tiles.
    xoxo – Cathy

  4. The Spanish company Mainzu does some beautiful cement tiles in classic designs.
    Keep in mind that real cement tiles are thicker than ceramic tiles. It can affect your measurements. Check with your contractor.
    As for whether they will go out of style, maybe if you pick something very trendy. But I just had dinner at some friends’ 1895 house in the south of France and its original cement tiles are still gorgeous.

  5. WOW! So many options… I feel myself falling down a rabbit hole!

  6. Love this post. So great!

    Veranda Tile Designs is another company worth considering too.

  7. Wow! So many options! May I kindly request a roundup of chairs – specifically wing back chairs 🙂

  8. A gorgeous (and very thorough) roundup of sources and designs! Bookmarking this page just for eye candy. I love pattern of any kind but tile speaks a language all its own.

  9. Your round-up posts are the best thing on the internet for amateur designers!!!! Keep them up!!!!!!!

  10. This round-up is EPIC!! Thank you for this!

  11. OMG WOW!!! So many awesome amazing graphic designs, I WANT! Are there any budget friendly cement tiles on the market yet? I have seen some ceramic versions / knockoffs on overstock… I bet we will see this graphic trend be recreated in ceramic and/or porcelain soon, but wonder if there are any cement tiles that are cheaper than the others…?

    1. I’ve seen some from Daltile at my local tile shop’s window.

  12. this post just changed my life.

  13. Yes, yes, yes! 2/3 weeks ago, I googled & houzzed “cement tiles” and “patterned tiles” & got nowhere, basically. Thank you for the timely resource!

  14. i love these ideas and appreciate the impressive amount of work that went into researching all of it. ironically, i am right now (as in…NOW, today) removing heavily patterned tile from the bathrooms in my 1970’s “spanish” (subdivision…ranch) house. the tiles have held up beautifully for 42 years, but yowza. living with the patterns on floors and walls day after day can be crazy-making over time. , the colorways are self-limiting — the tile demands center stage. i will replace the patterned tiles with plain cement tiles and go crazy with towels.

  15. these tiles do have wow factor but in average American house subdivisions, I don’t think they’d have longevity. I do love the look, for now.

  16. Omg!! Thank you so much for posting these resources!!! I have been searching and searching and have not come across near the cement tiles that you shared ! Awesome! I’m so excited to get going on my project!

    Thanks Again! [email protected]

    1. Aroud corner in New York City we are factory. try here.

  17. Awesome Roundup! Would LOVE to see a follow up post where you picked your favorites by style of house (per your awesome advice)! Thanks for all you do 🙂

    1. Yes!!! Exactly this – suggestions as to what is appropriate for your style of home. I’d love to use a subtle cement tile for a kitchen backsplash but am concerned it will date itself quickly in my 70s California rancher house…

  18. Emily, I love your Rules”. These tiles are amazing and trendy right now, but they can’t just be thrown into any decor. They’re beautiful when placed in the right style house with the right elements. Thank you for reminding us we need a designer sometimes!! ?

  19. **So glad** you mentioned Villa Lagoon! Lundy (the most gorgeous, both in body and heart), the owner, helped me with our laundry room (now changing room) project eight years ago. I wanted a colorful crazy quilt and Lundy definitely ensured I got what I wanted, including a good mix of black to help ground the pattern(s). I did investigate Popham but back then they were still only in Morocco, not yet in the US with Ann Sacks, and, while lovely, they were (are?) a bit more mod than I wanted (although I do like their Rings) and MUCH more $$$ than Villa Lagoon.

    After eight years of daily use and not the most loving treatment (that floor is not babied — vacuum and occasional wash) I have to say they have held up beautifully. Seriously. We would do this again in a heartbeat and we would work with Lundy at Villa Lagoon again in the same. And I’m kind of a barracuda ….

    You can see a teeny bit of the floors , but they’re in shadow. I promise they are lovely!

  20. I would love to see a round up showing which tiles work best with which style of house in more detail. I have a mid century built in 1961 so I am thinking if I stick to the very graphic tiles it could still feel authentic. I’m sure others would like to see what you think works best for their style of house.

  21. Great Round up! Just want to share Archipelago Tile. They are from Portland and the designs are incredible.

    Best,

  22. I have to admit I chuckled a little hearing that it’s national ceramic tile day. Is there anything without a national day? This post is an absolute godsend. There’s about 10 different placed in my home that I want to add ceramic tile to. We have a midcentury raised ranch that is so cookie-cutter-vanilla-suburbia it makes me want to cry. I need to add some (appropriate) spice to this house ASAP!

  23. Thank you so much, Emily! I’m remodeling my house this summer and want cement tile for the bathroom floors, but I’ve been overwhelmed by all the different companies and really wishing I could have them all in the same place to compare. This is the best thing ever!

    1. Aroud corner in New York City we are factory. try here.

  24. So incredibly generous, yet again. Thank you Emily and crew.

    Now I wish I had a house style that could use these gorgeous tiles!

  25. This is rad! I’ve loved the Captain Smith wallpaper by Grow House Grow for years; had no idea they’d gotten into tile-making. Sealing cement sounds like a real pain in the ass though so I have no intention of installing these; I have enough trouble keeping the grout acceptable in my shower.

    Next roundup idea: super-slender console tables! You know how sometimes you need something that doesn’t have a big footprint, in a narrow older hallway or odd room? I’d love to see a roundup of consoles that are less than a foot deep, and bonus points if you include some that have storage and aren’t just gorgeous expensive art-furniture that I can’t cram wet gloves into.

  26. Great roundup! Do you by any chance know who makes the blue hexagonal tiles with white lines used in the bathroom pic above? Thank you!

    2. I think several manufacturers have a similar design. My best guess for this exact one is Mission Stone and Tile.

      1. Or Marrakech

  27. This blog looks fabulous, does not know existed a client recommended to me as I saw the name of our company Brothers Cement Tile Corp. in your post. You did a great job, We are a small factory cement tile handmade in the same way as their birth year 1857. We have our factory in the city of New York and very easy abscess, we have a lot of patterns, where you can choose you want, and be inspired to use the colors you like most

  28. Wow…an increadible round up! I thought I’d already obsessed over every encaustic option for our master bath, but now…!!! Thank you 🙂

  29. Love cement tiles – have them in my guest bath and fireplace surround – but those puppies are hard to seal properly. Make sure you’ve got somebody who knows what they’re doing. In the bathroom, first guy made a giant mess of the job – specialist had to come in, scrape the bad sealer off and reseal – they ended up with a bit more of a rustic, distressed finish, but it works OK with the style of my house (kinda like Emily’s cloent’s kitchen)

  30. Great roundup and nice work! Just as an FYI- the Fireclay tiles are a hand painted clay body tile and are gorgeous in person. They are actually a great alternative to cement if you don’t want to deal with as much maintenance.
    Thanks again!

  31. This website is good and always shares new thought….

  32. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for this round-up! Hoping to do mudroom/bathroom soon and now I have even more options to consider!
    I would like to suggest that when a link is clicked that it opens a new page instead of navigating away from your site. Is this possible?

  33. Hi Emily!!

    I love these! Any chance for a ceramic tile roundup too? We’re redo-ing a tiny bathroom and I’d love to put in something with a little character, but the small batch fees are killing me!

  34. Thank you for this post!! We are working on a small wine room and love the ARTO option. Great resource!

  35. What a resource! I’ve been drooling over cement tiles on Pinterest recently and had no idea where to find them. This is great! Thanks!
