Do you have a decorating project and want to choose finishes that are very durable, elegant and never go out of style? Then be sure to explore all the advantages that handcrafted cement mosaic tile has to offer.
It is by far one of the best investments you can make no matter if you are building your home, a business, or commercial space, or simply if you want to increase the value of your property.
The material: the most important thing
When it comes to finishes, the variety of materials you can choose from is very wide, but not all of them will give a space project all the personality and elegance you are looking for.
Speaking specifically of floors and surfaces, some of the all-time favorites are wood, marble, stoneware and tile.
Although finishes such as stave or marble slabs are very attractive, the reality is that in terms of cost-benefit they are not very affordable. On the other hand, finishes such as linolith or ceramic tiles are much more economical but do not stand the test of time and do not increase the value of a building.
So what is the ideal balance? Cement tiles, also called paste mosaics, are the undisputed winners because without requiring the investment of luxury finishes, they offer great resistance and combine it with an unmatched aesthetic.
Colors and designs that will stand the test of time
Cement tiles are manufactured using a traditional method by expert craftsmen. Each of its patterns and designs is unique, the variety from which you can choose is almost infinite and, as if that were not enough, it is one of the few types of finishes that gives you the possibility to customize it if none of the options you find on the market convince you.
The quality that characterizes Mexican cement mosaic tiles is that it turns any room, from a kitchen to a bathroom or a foyer, into a unique space full of warmth and character at the same time.
One of the things you should take into account is that, unlike other types of floor tiles, cement design mosaics are not meant to be changed or replaced every few years, but to last a lifetime. This is what gives homes, hotels, restaurants, or buildings with this finish a very distinctive personality that stands the test of time, fashions and redecorations.
Installation and maintenance
Installing cement mosaic tiles is slightly more complex than installing other kinds of tiles and coverings, especially if you chose a pattern that involves combining several colors, sizes and shapes, for example, the hexagonal mosaic. Therefore, it is always recommended that you turn to professionals in this area.
On the other hand, handmade cement mosaic tile necessarily needs maintenance every one or two years. This could be seen as a disadvantage, but it is a very simple process that leaves each piece looking like the first day, and that is something you cannot do with ceramic tiles.
Finally, consider that you can use this kind of tile for small modern kitchens or huge colonial kitchens, for tiny bathrooms that need a dose of personality or for bathrooms that could fit three showerheads. For floors, walls and bars, for interiors and even for exteriors. Its versatility is absolute.
