Cement tiles in Europe have been made using hydraulic press since mid 1800’s. To begin with they were used mainly in prestige public buildings and in houses owned by the upper class, but by the turn of the century they became common in all homes.Their popularity was based not only on their outstanding beauty but also their excellent durability. In the 60’s and 70’s the tiles made way to more neutral flooring materials. There has been a new revival for cement tiles lately as people are more interested in lasting and ecological building materials. A vast selection of different patterns, colours and the smooth finish make tiles a fresh and practical option for those who are looking for something different.
