Obsessed – Cement Tile

     When my little guy was a toddler, he wanted a “Hulk” toy at Target soooo bad.  It was called “Hulky Hulk” and I knew it would be a toy he’d play with once and probably never again.  He would not stop obsessing about this toy and in our house we now refer to this obsessive behavior as “Hulky Hulk”…and let me tell you, I’m Hulky Hulk for cement tile – also known as Cuban tile.  By the way, of course I gave in on the original Hulky Hulk and it was played with once and then it ended up in the bottom of the toy box.  Just saying…

     Cement tile is bold and beautiful – it definitely makes a statement.  I personally love it for small touches, like a backsplash, bathroom floor or shower or a smaller room like a laundry room.  I’m sort of glad we put off remodeling our hideous brass master bathroom for the past 10 years, because I need to work some cement tile into the design.  Here are a few inspiration photos I have saved on my “Tile” Pinterest board and at the end, I’ll include a few websites where you can order these tiles for yourself!

     I follow a blogger from here on Instagram and her house is worthy of a magazine spread.  I’ve seen glimpses of her killer tangerine colored barn doors and I’ve seen cement tiles in one or two bathrooms and her laundry room…

     I have a few sites bookmarked for the day I get to pull the trigger on my bathroom remodel.  I envision everything plain and white and then BAM, a Hulky Hulk floor!
