Ready for spring? We're headed straight to the beach with this month's project pick. The Espiral cement tile brings in the beach and ocean with cool blues. It also creates a festive and fun floor using a bright red accent. This pattern is the perfect theme for a beach patio or open-air deck. Cement tile is a great material choice for this high-traffic, outside application. The pattern and field tile on this floor are all 10" x 10".

The Artist Series is a unique collection of cement tiles created by artists from the Dominican Republic. Cándido Bidó, a Dominican Republic artist, is the creative force behind the bold Espiral cement tile design used on this open-air patio floor.

Tile Tip:

Use a mix of diagonal and on-the-square tile to provide visual action and interest in the same room. For instance, the shower wall is a grid pattern while the rest of the bath walls are on diagonal. Or, the backsplash on grid and the counter or floor on point.
