We recommend cement tiles for the flooring of commercial public spaces, especially high-traffic floors of business properties, due to their incredible durability and thickness. Their color will not fade, nor will they crack or break easily.
Bathrooms & Showers
Due to their non-slip properties, matte cement tiles are perfect for bathroom and shower walls and floors. Moreover, they're moisture-proof, making them especially easy to clean.

The History of Cement Tiles
Cement tiles date back to mid-nineteenth-century France and Spain. They became known for their creative patterns and vivid colors, forming a canvas on which art could be functional as well as beautiful. Artisans carefully crafted each pattern using special pigments and a metal mold. Particularly commonplace in the Mediterranean, they were decorated in traditional local patterns.
Since the nineteenth century, they remained a popular accent in European interior design, valued for both their aesthetic quality and practicality. In the early twentieth century, cement tiles with Avant-garde designs and patterns were favored. They adorned some of the world's most iconic places, including Russian palaces.
Recently, these tiles have become more popular in the US, for good reason.
