The cement tiles are floor-covering tile, walls and other surfaces made of Portland cement and special aggregates (sand, marble dust etc.) First appeared in 19th century’s France with the parallel development of technology of hydraulic systems and cement production. Frequent use of the last century, along with the widespread promotion of the ceramic tile aside cement tile’s market. However, the unique design of the original texture and the endless decorative capabilities (pattern -color selection) was brought back to the forefront of decoration and interior design. At this moment the cement tile appears on highlight business premises and residences offering unique patterns and all handmade texture that characterizes it!
The dimensions of our tiles is 20X20 cm and thickness 15 mm.
That means, cement leveling should be layeredat 18 mm below the final desired level to cover the thickness of the tile 15 mm plus 3 mm glue.
Material is handmade and made one by one in special molds and casts.Their ingredients are cement, marble dust sand and natural pigments. It requires deep knowledge of materials and their properties but the main ingredient is the spirit! You choose plan through a variety of patterns and colors .
Install like all common tiles / marbles with glue or mortar and has excellent adhesion since it is akin material with ordinary cement. The joints must left as ceramic tiles but usually preferred small joint 1-2mm for the project to emerge, and been filled with white cement.
Can be applied to all desired surfaces! In cases of specific substrates (wood-plywood, drywall) you should prepare the necessary groundwork just as you do gor the ceramic tiles. Ask us to give you practical and responsible solutions for the proper technical and aesthetic affinities.
No further treatment of the tile after installation except waterproofing is not required.
If you simply want to assign the more gloss you can make a rubbing with a scrubber using a soft felt the sander.
Finish is smooth and pleasant to use without undesirable shiny patches. You can choose the final finishing depending on the waterproofing material that will apply. The cement is of the nature of the absorbent but the production process makes particularly compact and using properly classified aggregates – sealing makes resistant to wear and absorption. Our cement tiles can be delivered to you waterproofed with special varnish impregnation. The final protective coating is applied to the end of their placement depending on the desired result.
Their production process makes them very durable and require no special maintenance. As they are cement based they demand eco-friendly wash with soap-based cleaners to avoid bleach, as we do with marble coats.

No minimum order.
You can have samples both as regards the design but also as regards the color.
Cement tile advantages are:
- It’s ecological! The cement tile production process has a very low carbon footprint as prepared in “hand” and does not require energy-intensive processes such as baking, etc. and the materials of which are found in abundance without burden the resources of the ecosystem
- It is unique! It is literally unique because each one is hand made
- Has infinite combinations of colors and patterns! You can choose any color you want and whatever our plan you like. If you do not find the design you want or want to reproduce an existing old plan then we can build it for you simply by sending us a picture of the project.
