Cement Tile Yellow Kitchen

yellow kitchen cabinets and colorful cement floor tilesColor and pattern combine to create a sophisticated look.

An early 20th century house in Barcelona retains its original floor covering in many areas, including the kitchen.  Hydraulic tiles, also known as cement tiles, are traditionally cast in a mould using a mixture of tinted cement and powdered marble.  The bold coloring goes throughout the thick tiles, so it’s no surprise that the multi-color pattern still looks marvelous a century later. Burst of colors are found in every room, and the kitchen is no exception.  Moroccan stucco walls are a soft backdrop for the vivid yellow cabinets.  Over-sized stainless pulls and a roll-out stainless worktable (far left) make up the baking and storage side of the kitchen.

    We LOVE this kitchen. Europeans can often be more bold in interior design than Americans w/ their beiges. A kitchen like this will bring a smile every morning w/ your coffee. For all the jazzy folks out there, let us make some bright custom tiles for you.
