Timeless doesn’t equal boring! There will always be room for black and white in the world of interior design, especially when it comes in the form of Villa Lagoon Tile’s handcrafted cement tile. This seemingly simple color combo is elevated by the depth and character that cement tile brings. Whether it be a bold and graphic patterned floor or a delicately balanced patterned wall, our cement tile will make a statement worth repeating for years to come!
We have the most talented clients! Sure to inspire, below is a collection of black and white tile installations featuring VLT’s handcrafted cement tile!
Cement Tile on a Budget
The Essentials Collection is a curated selection of Villa Lagoon Tile’s most universal and basic cement tiles. Handcrafted one at a time by our skilled artisans and in-stock for under $4.00 per piece, you can easily stay on trend and on budget!
The new Ombré collection from Villa Lagoon Tile is a departure from traditional cement tile design. Inspired by the traditional textile technique of dying or weaving color from dark to light, Our Ombré tiles start with a highly saturated pool of color shifts from dark to light as a result of our artisans’ deft blending of hand poured, pigmented cement. Graduated color brings both depth and light, creating a bold design statement.
The organic nature of hand pouring means that Ombré collection tiles are perfectly imperfect, an artistic statement for entryways or accent walls in homes or hospitality projects. The Ombré collection is available in our most vivid South Beach Colors.
These dynamic tiles are made to last: no printed-on color here. Similar to natural stone, each cement tile is unique with slight color variations, the sign of an artisan-made product. Installing cement tiles is similar to installing natural stone, with tighter grout lines and use of a sealant after the tiles are set.
Villa Lagoon Tile can custom-make your Ombré cement tile with many of our existing patterns but we created a few new fun patterns that will really show off the style. Contact us to create your custom look!
We at Villa Lagoon Tile are all aflutter about the current issue of HGTV Magazine.

Our favorite feature of this home (yes, totally biased!) is the 10ft long kitchen peninsula dressed in our Solid “Seaside Blue” Hexagonal Cement Tile. The natural tonal variation seen from tile to tile introduces an organic element to the space’s modern design by giving it movement and character. We absolutely love to see our tile on verticle surfaces like this! In fact, both homes in the “House Tours” section of the current HGTV Magazine feature cement tile on the wall. It’s a great way to up your design game by reinventing the boring backsplash or highlighting the sometimes overlooked design elements in your space. For your next project consider adding cement tile to a bar front, fireplace, alcoves, stair risers, or hello, who doesn’t love a good feature wall? Villa Lagoon Tile can make a thinner version of almost all of our tiles making the verticle application of cement tile even easier!
To help inspire your next project we’ve put together this collection of installations starring our cement tile on the backsplash and beyond!

In historic cement tile floors one sees many variations of colors formed using iron oxide and a few other simple natural earth pigments. These old tile floors have a rich but often deep color range. Now with earth-wide connectivity and speedy transportation of goods from country to country, we are able to find pigments to create just about any cement tile color needed by a designer or architect.
We are in love with these gorgeous new shades that we have added to our cement tile standard palette.
These super saturated cement tile colors would have been impossible just a few years back. Disney wanted some vivid colors for a special project in Hong Kong. We got busy and came up with just what their designers needed for a bright, fun floor in a Disney hotel restaurant. It is still under construction, but we know we will have finished project photos in a few months. The floor will amaze you.
Shown here: Sunshine SB-9000, Cherry Red SB-9001, Violeta SB-9002
If your project calls for new or unusual colors, just ask, there is a really good chance we can achieve your desired hues just as we did for this special Disney job.
