Caprice Grove Cement Tile Echoes Traditional French and Spanish Patterns

Inspired by French and Spanish cement tile traditions, the Caprice Grove cement tile pattern by Villa Lagoon Tile is a new classic featuring alternating quatrefoils and spear-point crosses. The Caprice Grove handcrafted cement tile features a floral pattern that makes for a sophisticated backdrop in a home bar and entertainment area, inside or out.

Pictured here, the bold combination of green apple, straw, jade and velvet sky adds a distinctive personality to any space.

Or, make the hues completely your own with an easy-to-use cement tile design tool that customizes your color palette.

These tiles are made to last: no printed-on color here. Villa Lagoon cement tiles are handcrafted in studios around the world where the design reflects the region. Similar to natural stone, each tile is unique with slight color variations, the sign of an artisan-made product.

Installing cement tiles is also similar to natural stone with tighter grout lines and use of a sealant after the tiles are set.

MSRP for the tiles is $16.77 per square foot. To purchase Caprice Grove tile and sealant factory-direct, or to learn more about the benefits of using cement tile, visit villalagoontile.com.

Cement Tile: Not Just for the Floor Anymore!

HGTV Magazine Cober july/August 2018We at Villa Lagoon Tile are all aflutter about the current issue of HGTV Magazine. In this July/August 2018 edition, you will be sure to spot the hippest little mid-century pad that just so happens to rock our cement tile! Owners Dave and Brennen together with the online design company Laurel & Wolf reimagined their condo right into the 21st century.

Pick up or download a copy today so you can tour this amazing home!

Our favorite feature of this home (yes, totally biased!) is the 10ft long kitchen peninsula dressed in our Solid “Seaside Blue” Hexagonal Cement Tile. The natural tonal variation seen from tile to tile introduces an organic element to the space’s modern design by giving it movement and character. We absolutely love to see our tile on verticle surfaces like this! In fact, both homes in the “House Tours” section of the current HGTV Magazine feature cement tile on the wall.  It’s a great way to up your design game by reinventing the boring backsplash or highlighting the sometimes overlooked design elements in your space. For your next project consider adding cement tile to a bar front, fireplace, alcoves, stair risers, or hello, who doesn’t love a good feature wall?  Villa Lagoon Tile can make a thinner version of almost all of our tiles making the verticle application of cement tile even easier! HGTV Magazine House Tours article image from page 106 featuring our teal hexagonal cement tile on the from of the kitchen bar.


To help inspire your next project we’ve put together this collection of installations starring our cement tile on the backsplash and beyond!

Going Ga-Ga for Google

google logo with tile background

We are just blown over by all the love that Google has been showing us lately!

(YES, THAT GOOGLE!)

We’re so proud to be featured for our state of Alabama in Google’s Economic Impact Report. The purpose of the EI Report is to highlight Google’s local economic impact across America and they chose Villa Lagoon Tile as an example of a small business that has utilized the web to build and grow. They sent out an awesome photographer, Rick Olivier, to get some shots for the report and are even flying two VLT team members out to Cali for a visit to the Googleplex, to learn, network, and explore with the other successful businesses representing their states.

Google photoshoot fun!

Google also featured VLT in their Instagram series: “Small Biz Stories”!
