Project Pick: Traditional Santiago Cement Tile Entry

The handcrafted cement floor tiles grab your attention the moment you open the front door. The Santiago cement tile pattern in a custom colorway is certainly the center of attention in the foyer. The pattern and border use warm colors and the area is trimmed in a solid color cement tile in terra cotta. The border frames the field or 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 border. Use solid color cement tiles on the edge of a room to simplify the installation so you don't have to make cuts to border and field patterned tiles.

Color changes the look and feel of the pattern. Here's the same pattern in an alternate colorway:

Don't be limited by these colorways. Design your own color scheme. Choose from any of the 89 colors available in the Heritage Cement Tile color palette.
