3. The tiles are handmadeCement tiles are handmade and available in plain colours or printed designs that are created by placing a stencil inside a square tile mould.The stencil is the tool that creates pattern on the tile; it is filled with a mixture of white or coloured pigments, marble powder and Portland cement.Next, the stencil is carefully removed and a layer of cement is poured over the coloured layer to provide stability to the tile.Before the tiles cure, a hydraulic press is used to sandwich the decorative and base layer together so that both the layers are firmly sealed.Once the tile is compressed, it is soaked in water for a while and then left to air-dry for a period of two to four weeks. Here, in this example, the bold coloured cement tiles create an eye-catching terrace flooring.
The terrace floor could have easily been left plain, but the designers chose decorative tiles to impart a Mediterranean edge to this space. The curvy transition between the two floor materials gives a softer seam to the tiles, creating a dynamic look.
Characteristic arches and signature Mediterranean tiles transform the terrace into a lively Bohemian bar. A swing set to the left adds a whimsical edge to the space.Read more:Ahmedabad Houzz: A Glass, Concrete & Steel House in the Midst of NatureHouzz Tour: A Snug, Warm Haven Within Mumbai’s World One TowerTell us:What did you like most about this home?
