I’ve got a deep, deep obsession with encaustic cement tiles. The eco-friendly tiles, which date back to the 12th century, are individually formed in a hand forged metal frame and deposited with pigmented cement slurries. The frame is removed and additional layers of cement are added and sandwiched together to create the final product. It’s a beautiful process – one that’s been adapted and used in homes across Cuba, Europe, and Morocco for centuries. Aren’t they just perfect for bathrooms, kitchens or even an outdoor patio?! They age so beautifully, too. If you love color and patterns, cement tiles are a no brainer.
