CEMENT-EFFECT TILES FOR THE SPECIFICATION MARKET - Apr 19

As trends within design have expanded to explore a range of industrial and architectural surfaces, the textural charm of raw cement and plaster finishes have become synonymous with a desirable, urban aesthetic. Popular within residential, hospitality and commercial sectors, cement-effect tiles create a seamless look that retains the distinctive and sought-after characteristics of real cement whilst offering all the practical benefits of porcelain.

Ideal for the designer, architect or specifier that’s looking to achieve a contemporary scheme that evokes a raw and uninterrupted appearance, cement-effect tiles would be well placed within a broad range of spaces - from large hotel lobbies to open-plan residential developments.

Large Format Cement-Effect Tiles

Favoured by many architects and designers, a large format cement or concrete-effect tile provides a practical alternative to the real raw material in a pared-back monochromatic palette. Available in seven large sizes and six plain colourways, the Core collection’s largest tile measures at 900 x 900mm, perfect for creating a flawless industrial appeal in any modern interior setting. Presented in a tactile, textured matt finish, the Maiora Concrete unglazed porcelain tiles are available in an even larger 1200 x 1200mm and 1200 x 2400mm slabs for a standout effect. Suitable for both walls and floors, these concrete-effect tiles provide an R10/+36PTV slip resistance value making them an excellent tile choice for high traffic areas such as lobbies, offices and shops.

Patterned Cement-Effect Tiles

Combining the trend for geometric tiles with the desire for an industrial urban palette, patterned cement-effect tiles offer the specifier and designer the best of both worlds. From encaustic patterns to linear designs, our cement-effect tile collection includes a selection of décor options that can be paired with the plain concrete-look tiles for an effortless industrial finish. To discover some cement-effect décor tiles, take a look at our Bronx and Rewind ranges for a contemporary twist on the concrete trend.

Cement-Effect Wall Tiles

For the ultimate industrial aesthetic, our collection of imitation cement and concrete tiles are also suitable for application on walls. Whether combined with the same cement finishes as the floor or paired with a complementary urban palette, the cement-effect porcelain wall tiles are guaranteed to create a standout scheme for any residential or commercial space.
