Architectural Ceramics was honored to be able to provide the tile and design for the kitchen's backsplash. "Hand-poured cement tiles (see the tile here to get your own!) satisfied the wife's desire for craftsmanship and color. Her husband, hesitant at first about having huge yellow and blue diamonds spanning the entire wall, now loves how the tiles make the kitchen feel energetic and lively," says HGTV.

Cement tile, like the backsplash in this modern farmhouse kitchen, was first manufactured in the mid-nineteenth century to cover floors with novel designs, bold colors and to withstand footprints and the passage of time. Placed on the ground, walls or roofs; anything cement tiles cover becomes art.

The tiles are an ingenious combination of cement, marble powder, water, sand, pigments, time and patience. Great durability, strength and versatility. A technique that uses a mold to make designs in many colors and a press to harden the tiles without requiring heat. The absence of kilns and high temperatures in the manufacturing process differentiates these tiles from other pavers. Cement tiles are therefore considered to be a ‘green’ or ecological product because the elements and process required for manufacturing them are natural.

Manufacturing cement tiles is a pure art form that has been passed on from generation to generation. Each piece that leaves our warehouse bears the pride of these artisans for whom these tiles represent; not only the fruit of their labor, but also the heritage of a tradition. As these tiles are the work of artisans, slight imperfections, irregular edges and the appearance of fine crazing lines are inherent to this product. These characteristics add to the tiles natural appeal and do not compromise its performance.
