2012's Top 12 Cement & Ceramic Tiles

Before we get too far into the new year, I want to share our most popular selling tiles of 2012. For the first time in three years, a white tile was not our top seller! In fact, you won't see a white tile until position #8. In 2012, our top selling tile was a Heritage Olive Green cement tile in a 14" x 14" format - the largest format available in cement tile. So without further ado, here's Avente Tile's Top Selling Tiles of 2012!

  1. Heritage Olive Green 14" x 14" Solid Color Cement Tile (Polished Finish)

Cement Tiles Remain Popular

As you can see, cement tiles continue to remain very popular and dominate this year's list. Cement tile's popularity continues to grow for several reasons:

  • Cement tiles provide stunning designs with straight-forward installation and minimal maintenance.
  • Existing patterns can be easily customized with a myriad of colors.
  • New patterns can be created and customized for minimal costs.
For these reasons, I expect cement tiles to remain popular among homeowners, designers, and architects.

Nevertheless, our timeless ceramic tile patterns are not to be outdone! At least one choice from our Portuguese, Spanish or Antigua Colonial lines makes an appearance in each year's list. This year wasn't any different.
