See what a rich look you can achieve with mono-chrome cement tiles. The variation in color and tone that is an integeral part of the nature of cement tile makes a richly colored floor.
This amazing installation is a showcase of talent from a tile layer, making precision cuts of larger single-color tiles to create this pattern. Similar looks could also be achieved using some of the specialty shapes, such as combining 8"x8" with 4"x4" and 4"x8" tiles. A marvelous Victorian Brownstone renovation.
Consider also textured relief cement tiles in solid colors, which are perfect where additional traction is required like next to a pool or shower area.
