Project Pick: Cuban Tiles Create a Tropical Splash

Cuban Tiles Create a Tropical Splash
Cuban Heritage Design 130-3B Bath Installation

In this tropical-inspired bath, Cuban Heritage Design 130-3B creates a bold backsplash. This installation uses a common cement tile size of 8" x 8". However, The design is anything but traditional because the Cuban tiles are used as wainscoting along the walls that includes the border design. To provides a finished look, the top border row of cement tile along the wall uses a bull-nose edge.

The colorway shown here is very contemporary and tropical. The primary colors are cool blues with light pink or salmon accents and include:

Turquoise  Heritage Solid Color Turquoise

White  Heritage Solid Color White

Pink Frost  Heritage Solid Color Pink Frost

Steel Blue  Heritage Solid Color Steel Blue

Like all our Cuban Heritage cement tiles, this pattern comes in three colorways: one traditional and two contemporary. You can substitute colors to create a custom look using colors from our Heritage Colors of cement tile.

Cement Tile Tip:

When installing the same pattern on vertical and horizontal surfaces, the use of border tiles at the edge of the floor and wall provides a transition.
