Project Pick: Traditional Alcala Cement Tile Patio

Handcrafted cement tiles provide both long life and distinctive beauty. This stunning Alcala cement tile pattern in a custom colorway creates an eye-catching floor with its showy pattern and border using warm colors and earth tones. You can achieve this dramatic look for about $10 a square foot. The border nicely frames the pattern in a room or hallway and is a traditional method of using cement tiles to create a 'rug'.

Solid color cement tiles are used to fill the edge of the room and any irregular shapes outside the cement tile carpet. Using solid color cement tiles on the edge of the room also simplifies an installation because cuts don't effect the border or field pattern.

In this beautiful installation, Traditional Alcala Cement Tiles are warmed with a fall color palette of:

Suede Cement Tile Blonde Wood Cement Tile Indian Red Cement Tile Brown Cement Tile
Suede Blonde Wood Indian Red Brown

You can use these colors to create a totally different feel in an alternate palette that uses cool blues:

Design Tip:

Use tile as your color key for design. Interior Designer, Lisa M. Smith at The Decor Girl Blog points out that, "Color has to start somewhere." Colors for a room, home or cement tile pattern create a color palette and come from a color key. Lisa adds that, "Using a color key works like a charm, every single time."

She further explains what a color key is and how to use it.

Color Key: This is your color road map for interior success. An object used as the basis for the color scheme of a room or home. It may be a piece of fabric, artwork, or a rug. Colors which appear in a color key are selected for areas and furnishings. Each color used in the room or home needs to appear in or coordinate with this piece.
