The cement tile collection at Tile Gallery makes me want to redo my powder room immediately. But even if I could drop everything right now and move forward on the project, I don’t think I would ever be able to decide which of these fun, colorful patterns I would choose for the floor (I’m thinking simple white or gray subway tiles on the wall, and this pop of energy on the floor; it’s both modern and vintage at once!). Here is some interesting background about this type of tile from the company: “Cement tiles were developed in France in the mid-1800s and quickly spread around the world. Unlike ceramic tiles, which are usually glazed and fired, decorative cement tiles are made by pouring a mixture of cement and color pigment into separate compartments in a metal mold that looks similar to an oversized cookie cutter. Once set, the tiles are compressed under 3,000 pounds of pressure. The tile is left to cure making it remarkably strong and lustrous.” The price is around $18 to $23 per square foot. Also great for an entryway or foyer.
