I have always loved Moroccan inspired concrete/cement tiles, but, in the past, it has taken a special client who was bold enough to use them! While they aren’t for everyone, their bold colors and patterns definitely set the stage for a room.
I have only ever used these tiles in a bathroom before, but I would love to one day use in a sitting room or breakfast room. The only downside to using in a bathroom is that they cannot be placed inside a shower, so you must find an alternate tile for a shower floor.

I am so happy that they are becoming more mainstream now, and I am seeing them pop up all over Instagram and Pinterest!
