Cement Look Tile for Less

We began the install on the bathroom floor last week at the flip house in Vegas. I had been searching for a geometric pattern tile and found a great one at Home Depot. During my search I stumbled across a bunch of great porcelain and ceramic tiles that look like authentic encaustic cement tiles but for less money than you’d pay for the real thing.

We’ve seen cement tiles everywhere in recent renovations throughout the design world and I love the look of them all. These bold patterns look fab in a bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, sunrooms, you name it. Like a rug, there’s something really fun about bold pattern underfoot, it makes a statement but is less in your face then when used on the walls (although I love that look too.) I wish I had a dozen bathroom remodels on my plate because I’d be sure to use several of these cement look ceramic tiles on the floor!

These ten patterns can be found at Home Depot:



1. Twenties Crest  2. Twenties Diamond 3. Twenties Petal  4. Twenties Circle  5. Braga Classic  6.  Berkeley Blue   7. Lotto Cobalto 8. Botanic Black  9. Atelier Antracita  10. Atelier Azul

These six patterns are available at Overstock:


1. Cavado Black  2. Thirties Classic  3. Somertile Art Black  4. Thirties Vertex  5. Thirties Corner  6. Thirties Vintage



cavado black and merola hydraulico

Note several of these are marketed as Merolo Tile at Home Depot and as Somertile at Overstock so you’ll see some repeats if you do a search on those sites. Many of these are less than $2 a tile, which is such a deal to get the look of encaustic cement tile for less!
