With an abundance of timeless flair to complement any stylish interior, it’s no surprise encaustic cement tiling has become a staple of the modern interior designer. A typical feature of art nouveau, cement tiling has a vast and colorful history. Considered both strong and affordable, cement was pioneered as housing flooring in the Industrial Revolution. But it became wildly popular in the early 20th century, especially in workspaces. Available in standard geometric patterns, or versatile enough to support intricate decoration, cement tiling can also be seen cropping up in the gorgeous creations of Antonio Gaudi, and later donning the streets of his Barcelona.
However, creating beauty with patterned flooring is certainly not a modern idea. Traveling back as far as ancient Pompeii we can see gorgeous cement patterned flooring making an appearance. Over time the style has evolved to include more abstract patterns and mature ornamentation. With cement, a sleek yet homely matte finish, and standard colors including softening gray tones, there is a world of opportunity for interior design.
Cement Tiling is Well and Truly On-Trend for 2021
Pattern tile is still something of a bold move, even where practical and long-lasting material is a given. Flooring is, of course, one of the biggest decisions when renovating any room. And, you’ll probably only get one shot, so second-guessing yourself is common.
Cement patterned flooring for homes hasn’t lost its appeal just yet, and it doesn’t look like it will any time soon, which makes it a safe bet for timeless renovations, and peace of mind. Cement tiling is the perfect fit for those who don’t want to be overly bold but still certainly want to make a statement.
With increasingly intricate designs, a delicate feel contrasts what most people’s minds conjure up when they imagine cement tiling. These tiles don’t tend to look dated, which means they’re always a safe, yet sophisticated choice. Not to mention, any room can benefit from cement tiling, thanks to its versatile nature. Perhaps you can utilize a more muted tone to really open out space. And you can create a canvas with a character for more statement-furniture.

A Note From Our Designers
Earthy palettes can create a warm and relaxing living space; however, using too many similar tones can make your room feel a little drab. To avoid this, balance out space with a combination of warm and cool tones and break up dark colors with accent shades. Indoor plants are ideal for adding a pop of color while still keeping that natural vibe. Finish the look with plenty of textured soft furnishings and accessories.
