3 Villa Lagoon TileAbout VLT Cement TileCuban tiles, mosaicos hidralicos, cement tile, encaustic tile — No matter what you call them, the-se tiles are seen all over Europe and Latin America.Recognizable by their vibrant colors and intricate designs, cementtiles are often used in public buildings, restaurants, and hotels toprovide a durable surface and decoration.Traditionally, cement tiles are used to create interlocking designsof four (4) tiles by rotating every tile by 90 degrees. Each quadrantforms one design unit. When laid side by side, these 4 tile squarescan also form another interlocking pattern.Patterned tiles are usually used with coordinating border tiles orsolid color tiles to create a rug like design on the floor. The rug-likedesign produces a feeling of formality to residential rooms andspaces. Likewise, these tiles are used widely in custom high-endhomes and in public buildings.How Villa Lagoon Tiles are MadeEach Villa Lagoon tile is individually hand-made using a processthat is more than 150 years old. Our tiles are not made of clay orglazed to produce colors.Villa Lagoon Tiles are made from marble dust, Portland cement,and natural earth pigments that are mechanically pressed togetherin a mold.Natural earth pigments are carefully mixed and poured into specificsections of the design frame. The pigments are overlaid with aspecially prepared dry Portland cement mixture then hydraulicallypressed into the cement later.Unlike traditional ceramic tiles, our tiles are not fired.
