Cement-Look Tile for Different Styles

Cement has been a staple in industrial style for a long time—it makes up the building blocks of factory lofts and high-rise buildings, and it’s used to create the atmospheric, urban look that defines the industrial style.

As elements of industrial design are being used to create new transitional styles, cement-look tile is popping up everywhere! See what designs are possible with cement-look tile.

Go for that factory-to-loft look with a cement-look design in a large-format tile like this Adessi Moliere Gris Porcelain Tile. Since it has fewer grout lines, the large-format tile visually transforms a smaller space to appear as large as a spacious factory loft.

A variation of gray hues in cement-look tile can add dimension and visual interest to a minimalist design, like this minimalist-modern-meets-southwest look. District Gray Porcelain Tile used in this space is made with inkjet technology to create a high-definition image of a cement surface.

Cement-look tile allows you to create designs that you otherwise couldn’t with traditional cement blocks. This City Style Gray Porcelain Tile in a herringbone pattern perfectly complements this eclectic-style bedroom, adding an understated, subdued tone and texture to a space!

Bring the cement look to new heights by using smaller tiles. This counter-to-ceiling backsplash in Urban Groove Matte Ceramic Tile brings two reminiscent elements of industrial and contemporary design—modern materials and a classic shape—to create a transitional look.

You can go even smaller to make a big impression! Uptown Antracite Porcelain Mosaic is the merging of two major trends—cement look and the hexagon shape—that gives this industrial cement look a metro-meets-metropolitan vibe. Emphasize the hexagon shape by using a light-colored grout, or create a subdued look using darker grout.
