Tile Can Achieve the Looks of Concrete and Stone

Tile is the ultimate chameleon, easily replacing materials such as marble or wood that require more upkeep. It can also replace surfaces such as concrete, plaster and stone that are heavier or more burdensome to install – and rest assured, the looks are just as textured and nuanced as the real thing.

Concrete Look Tiles

Concrete has emerged in past years as the go-to of aesthetes looking for a modern-industrial vibe, and our collection includes many different textures and palettes to consider.

Baltimore Natural, Dover Acero and Toscana Stone, for example, evince the look of pure, raw concrete.

Durango Acero and Newport Natural also emit a concrete look, yet have some brown tinting in the mix.

If you like the texture of concrete but want it to be a different color, Park Blanco offers a whiter tint, while Ocean Beige features a taupe color, and Newport Dark Gray carries a charcoal hue.

If you’re after a more polished concrete-like finish, Ruggine Niquel is a great option, while Raw Smoke Nature is even more refined.

The surface texture of Newport Beige, meanwhile, channels the hand-troweled look of plaster or stucco. Corinto Acero also works well in this respect.

Stone Look Tiles

There are also many options if you’re looking for a matte, understated stone surface.

Some of our more interesting tiles include Image Cream and our large format Tivoli Beige Polished, which is available in a 47″ square size.

Baltimore White provides a crisp, modern look that would look great in a kitchen or foyer.

Outdoor Options

If you want the look of flagstone outside, but don’t want to deal with its inherent irregularities in size and color, try West Coal Antislip. For a cool tint, consider Vela Grey Antislip. Terrazzo is also a nice choice for midcentury-modern lovers, in the form of Ceppo Stone or Ceppo Acero. There are more outdoor-friendly tiles to browse through in the new Pavers section of our website.
