Project Pick: Alcala Cement Tile on Bath Wall

Alcala Cement Tile Bath Installation

Cement tile patterns create distinctive and eye-catching accents for wall and backsplash installations. They pair well with wood and natural stone, especially when the pattern's colors "pull-out" the natural materials that share the space.

In this bath installation, notice how nicely the wood tones match the brown tones in the tile? The neutral colors in the stone balance the bold tile pattern that makes it easy to love. Our Traditional Alcala Cement Tile pattern was customized using blues and yellows that complement the browns in the tile and the wood. The pattern is used as accent strips along the edges of the room. The full pattern is placed on one wall that is reflected from the mirror. This approach keeps the room from getting too busy - especially when a mirror reflects the tile's pattern.

Design Tip:

Highlight base trim molding IF there is really something worth highlighting. Patterned cement tile floors generally steal the show so a bold trim works well in these installations.

Tile Tip:

On cement tile floor installations, consider using cement tile base trim. It comes with a bull nose edge that transitions nicely to the wall. You can also coordinate with colors used in the pattern like the installation below.
