Cement Tile for Bathrooms
Out of all the rooms in your home, bathrooms face some of the most strain. Whether due to regular use or simply the higher level of moisture in the air, different parts of the bathroom are particularly prone to wear-and-tear. Shower walls can easily become caked with mildew and lose their luster, shower floors can be faded by flowing water, and the wall around the sink is always at risk of becoming filthy or even damaged by moisture from the sink. While materials that are durable enough to stand up to the bathroom are hard to come by, durable AND attractive materials can be even harder to find.
Cement tile is the perfect way to make a stylistic statement with your bathroom without sacrificing quality. We offer a wide variety of different styles, colors, and textures, so you can choose the perfect pattern for your shower walls, shower floors, sink backsplashes, or even your entire bathroom floor.
Why Choose Cement Tile?
Cement tile is naturally resistant to problems that plague the materials that are commonly used in many bathrooms. Ceramic tile, for example, tends to fade drastically over time, and it will become much more fragile as it ages. Cement tile, on the other hand, only hardens and becomes less porous over time, becoming more resistant to water and mildew as it grows older. Also, due to the natural pigments our craftsmen use when making our tiles, the color only grows deeper, more complex, and more vibrant with age.
Our tiles truly shine in high-traffic, hard-use areas of the home. They are commonly applied in showers and bathrooms not simply because of their gorgeous designs, but because they are an ideal long-term choice for many different bathroom styles. While their appearance may be nuanced and elegant, our cement tiles can stand up to just about anything you can throw at them.
At Riad, we make sure to put as much care and effort into every tile as our customers do when choosing where to place them. We hope you enjoy using our tiles as much as we enjoy making them! Please feel free to request a sample anytime.
Even within the most elegantly decorated home, bathrooms tend to take on a character all their own. They can be the dreariest or most outstanding part of any home, with almost everything depending on décor. Though wall colors, updated fixtures, and fancy hand towels all play an important part in ensuring that the bathroom is comfortable and stylish, nothing splashes color and texture on a bathroom quite like the gorgeous patterns of cement tiling.
When applied to a bathroom, cement tile is as much a bold style statement as it is a practical and durable choice for a high-use area. Our custom patterns provide a natural contrast to the solid colors found in most bathrooms, which brings out the best in coloration of the bathroom while the colors of the bathroom accentuate the mesmerizing textures of our tiling. It really is the perfect combination, and that’s not even to mention the durability factor. Cement tiles can easily last decades, withstanding just about anything you can think to throw at them, and yes that includes changes in home styling trends.
If there’s one constant in home style trends, it’s that they are always changing. Everything from floor plans to color schemes tend to shift every few years, so making lasting decisions on the different stylistic aspects of your home can seem a bit challenging, especially on something as visible and prone to change as bathrooms. But if there’s one thing we at Riad Tile have learned over the years, it’s that encaustic cement tile is all but impervious to stylistic shifts. Whether it’s the fact that encaustic tile has been around for hundreds of years, the sense of movement it creates, or just the fact that it looks so darn cool, cement tile has proven to be a timeless addition to any household. In bathrooms, this timelessness is particularly important, as when home décor trends shift, bathrooms tend to be among the earliest and most drastic changes. Cement tile delivers more than just permanence to your bathroom though. It delivers something even more uncommon: stylish permanence. By adding cement tile to your bathroom, you aren’t making a purely utilitarian choice or a purely stylish choice; you’re making a choice that exists perfectly in both schools of thought and creates a bathroom that will never go out of style.
At Riad Tile, we take great pride in designing durable, beautiful tiles for almost any circumstance. Bathrooms are just one way our tiles can be used; they also shine in outdoor areas, kitchen backsplashes, or entryways. We make each tile by hand in order to ensure that you get the highest quality product possible. We offer a variety of different designs and patterns to fit any room or application.
