What are Cement Floor Tiles?

Who hasn't heard of hydraulic floors? Surely everyone today can easily identify ornamental flooring when they see it.

However, if you still have any doubts or were wondering what cement floor tiles are exactly, here is your answer: they are a type of highly decorative tile that became extremely popular during the modernism period of the 20th century.

Nonetheless, their huge aesthetic value has always been in fashion and so they have spread worldwide and survived the passage of time to become an essential feature in architecture and interior design all over the globe.

Homes with cement floor tiles

Cement tiles bring vibrancy, colour and movement into your home. This is one of the main reasons why they are always in fashion. In fact, cement tiles usually combine different colours and geometric or floral patterns to add a guaranteed touch of vibrant energy to any space.

However, black and white, single-colour and a wide range of patterns or motifs are available for cement floor tiles nowadays because they stem from a ceramic style that has evolved a great deal in the market, diversifying intensely and adapting to the needs of every potential user.

Traditionally, tiled floors could be found in the kitchen, but nowadays they can be found in any area of the house, from the entrance hall to the bedroom or even on the terrace.

Cement floor tiles for any room

A floor covered in cement tiles can be perfectly suited to all sorts of rooms, not only those inside a home but also in such commercial spaces as hotels, restaurants or shops.

These floors have become one of the most strongly rooted design trends and make a huge decorative contribution to the overall look and feel, which is why customers and visitors usually recognise them with ease and associate them with a specific establishment.

Opting for tiled floors in a business, especially in restaurants or commercial spaces, has become a popular choice among interior designers as, in addition to fitting in with many decorative styles, it is a visually clean element that conceals the dirt from daily traffic.

Terraces with cement floor tiles

Given the easy maintenance of hydraulic floors, opting for this construction material on terraces can be very wise.

Resistant to changing temperatures, frost, shocks and scratches, they will remain in perfect condition for many years while adding character and style to the space.

Outdoor cement floor tiles

Although finding cement floor tiles in the outdoor spaces of a home is not as common as in the kitchen, for example, this type of flooring has become increasingly more common for such spaces as balconies, terraces, patios and gardens.

Given the technical advancements made in the world of ceramics, modern cement tiles can be given a non-slip finish or a Neogrip finish, as in the case of Porcelanite Dos.

Our cement-inspired porcelain tiles offer the advantages to be gained from a safe and weather-resistant finish while bringing great decorative value to outdoor spaces.

A strong classic that never goes out of fashion: Choose kitchen cement floor tiles. Due to their excellent resistance and durability, hydraulic floors have become a very practical element for the kitchen.

Furthermore, the retro personality associated with this type of tile adds an extra touch of distinction to the floor of this room.

One highly original decorative option is to choose colourful cement floor tiles and combine them with units in neutral tones to create balance in the space.


The installation of porcelain cement floor tiles requires no significant technical expertise.

The trick to proper installation lies in levelling the floor properly beforehand. You should make sure that the support medium is perfectly level before applying the specific adhesive.

The second most important factor to consider is whether you have the right tools, such as a strong and long-lasting adhesive cement, a good adhesive comb for spreading the product and a hammer for helping stick the tile in place.

Finally, it is very important to maintain proper separation between the tiles in order to avoid tension caused by temperature changes.

However, our strongest recommendation is to get professional help whenever deciding to install cement floor tiles.

Cleaning the cement floor tiles from Porcelanite Dos is infinitely easier when compared with older cement floor tiles.

Because they are porcelain tile, their zero porosity prevents the absorption of unwanted odours and moisture so stains do not form on their surface.

A microfibre mop can be used for daily maintenance to remove dust, or a neutral or alkaline-based detergent mixed with water for mopping the floor.

Furthermore, unlike older porous cement tiles, porcelain tiles are highly resistant to chemical products and are therefore very difficult to damage in this way.
