Decorative concrete, including decorative concrete overlay like faux travertine, can add style and expression to any property and feature; such as complementing a stately and functional pergola and accompanying toasty concrete fire pit, adding fantastic pop while still serving practical purposes. Cement and concrete are quite affordable, including stamped concrete, stained concrete, concrete dye and concrete color, delivering excellent bang for the buck in both appearance and usage. It can be designed to conform to most any figure, structure and design element -- including different colors. Indeed, decorative concrete offers numerous benefits:
What is travertine flooring? Relatedly, travertine tile and travertine flooring can make a luxurious statement, too; and, for a similar dignified look that isn't as expensive as genuine travertine limestone, we can install the aforementioned decorative concrete layover, aka faux travertine.
What's concrete tile? While cement tiles and ceramic tiles may appear really similar to each other, the differences in how they're made and in their features are notable.
Cement-based concrete is an undeniably strong and durable material. While concrete-based tiles are generally used for commercial purposes to better withstand wear and tear than ceramic and hardwood varieties, concrete tiles are also endlessly customizable and stylish; thus being utilized in residences and homes over the centuries.
The less durable ceramic tiles are made with red, brown or white clay, can be either glazed or unglazed, and are fired in a coal or wood-fired kiln. Ceramic backsplash tiles are often most suited for counter tops, backsplashes, walls and mosaics. Ceramic floor tiles that are unglazed typically have a matte finish and come in either an earth red or natural brown clay tone.
Cement tiles are made from a mixture of sand, cement, color pigment and a marble powder that's poured into metal molds, backed by a dry concrete mixture and then compressed under 2,000 pounds of pressure. They have high thermal mass, thus can be great insulators for comfort and lower energy bills. All of these benefits are combined with beauty, functionality, customization and lost-lasting durability.
Cement tiles can be used on the floors and walls in the kitchen (including as backsplash and underside of an island), living room, foyer, dining room, bathroom, laundry room and outdoor patio; doubling as works of art.
