cement tile…inimitable style, room after room.

yes, cement tiles are hot on the scene- popping up in your favorite restaurants, hotels and other public spaces.

and if you are amongst the lucky – you may even be stepping onto your own cement tile baths and showers- kitchens and entries- just to name a few spaces currently getting this special treatment.

but if you think that the resurgence of cement tiles on the design scene is casting a homogenized style pallor on this visual horizon- think again!
