User Guide

This tool is for designing custom cement tile. You can select from our patterns, fill in your color choices, create a sample layout, and download or print a tear sheet of your choices. I'll point out the basics for now, but there will be a more in-depth walk through in the future.

Step 1: Choose a Pattern.

Click the tab "Pick Patterns" then just click on the pattern of your choice to add to the workspace. Some patterns are usually ordered in groups, and will load together, but don't let that stifle your creativity, if you only want a portion of that group. You can choose several to test out if you like, and you can come back later to add more.

We still don't have all of our patterns in the tool yet, so if the pattern you want is not in the list, call or email and we, and we bump it up next in line!

Step 2: Design Your Tile.

Click the tab "Design Tool" and start playing. You can switch which tile you're designing at any time by clicking the patterns in the workspace (the bar of patterns across the top, or along the side, depending on your screen orientation).

You will have one color from the palette selected, just click a region to fill it with that color, or click among the big group of colors to select a new color to work with.

The colors in use will start to show below the pattern. You can click them for some more options, or even drag one color over another to swap their places!

We try to speed up the process for you by linking regions that are almost always colored alike, but if that is inhibiting your creativity, you can always turn it off from the Design Tool tab's "Design Options" menu.

Step 3: Create a Layout.

This is optional, if you already know what you want, and simply want a tear sheet of the tile. You will begin with the option to add a layout, in one of a few styles. For now, we have a few basic options. "Square, Standard" is your basic grid of squares, "Square, on Point" is the same thing, but shown at a 45 degree angle, and for a few patterns that need it "Square, Vertical Offset" shifts each column by a half-tile.

After you select a layout, you will have several options. What happens when you click a tile in the layout is determined by the row of buttons over the upper-left corner of the layout:

  • Tile: This will place the currently selected tile from the workspace wherever you click.
  • Color: This will place the currently selected color as a single-color tile wherever you click. You can return to the "Design Tool" tab to switch colors.
  • Right, Left, 180°: With these selected, any tile you click will rotate right, left, our up-side-down.
  • Clear: This will remove the tile(s) where you click.

You can also simulate a 3d view with "Floorify", or use the "Layouts" button to add new layouts, switch between them, or delete ones you don't like.

Step 4: Print Your Work.

Have the tile of your dreams all planned out? Click the "Print" button in the upper right corner, and we'll generate a PDF document for you to download or print. The document will include a page for each tile, and a page for each layout. You can delete patterns from the workspace in the Design Tool tab, or delete layouts in the layout tab, if you were working on several alternate options you don't want to save.

Step 5: Email us!

The document that is generated is the perfect start for placing an order or getting a quote. Email it to info@villalagoontile.com with your contact information, your project's location and schedule, and the quantity needed of each tile, and we can get started with turning your creativity to reality.

Reporting Issues

It would be a great help if you can report anything that seems like it may be a bug or unexpected behavior. Please let us know what device and browser you are using, so we can do our best to replicate the issue. Unfortunately Internet Explorer is not supported. While most features should work well on the newest versions, if you are using an older version of windows, please consider switching to Chrome or Firefox .

Smartphone Note: Mileage may vary. Currently all features should work on modern versions of iOS and Android, but I still have a lot of work to do, optimizing the interface for smaller screens.
