Encaustic Tile Designs in our New Home Community in Gilbert

October 24, 2019, Author: Karen Stanley

Encaustic tile is frequently called cement tile or even Moroccan tile. This tile is unique with patterns created by using different colors of clay, as opposed to the glaze. Customarily, they consist of two colors, but a tile may be composed of as many as six. Notice how the grey and white create a bold pattern, without overwhelming the room? Greys are a great choice for creating a more neutral color pallet in a bathroom or kitchen. Meanwhile, it leaves you with endless opportunities for adding color with the walls, decor, and fixtures.

Note that these gorgeous tiles have been popular in Europe for centuries due to geometric patterns and colors. One of the reasons for that is Encaustic tile is versatile and timeless. Consequently, kitchen floors and walls are a great place to use it! Those two places are a popular choice, we’re seeing and more often in new homes.

At New Village Homes, we wanted the look of encaustic tile with the ease and durability of porcelain. At the same time, clean it easily with your everyday bathroom or kitchen cleaners. As a matter of fact, we used this beautiful gray and white tile in our Plan 103 Model home at Andalucia, our new home community in Gilbert.
