Cement Gray Tiles
You may not believe that cement gray is so popular!
The combination of black and white is a constant fashion theme in the design world. The gray color between black and white is a very nice looking middle color that can be combined with any color, simple yet classic.
In the tile industry, the gray is also a fire. No matter whether it is stone, wood, relief, tile, or even the background wall, all of them are gray, and the most representative is the “cement tile”.
1.the definition of cement tiles
In fact, the “cement tile” we often say is, in essence, an antique brick that restores the effect of concrete on the ground.
2.the style and characteristics of cement tiles.
Cement bricks have the characteristics of high strength, good durability, dimensional standard, complete shape, uniform color, etc. The grey color of the cement floor is natural cracked texture after prolonged use, which is in line with the Chinese tradition of pursuing a rustic style. Strong cultural atmosphere is deeply loved by young consumers.
At the same time, the cement brick can also be used as a foiling product, matched with solid wood, cloth, leather and other materials, can express the color and texture of the furniture, create a quiet and comfortable home environment, and form a spatial rhythm of visual focus. It also adds strong fashion and avant-garde atmosphere to the space, and can be applied in places such as bars, office buildings and high-end villas.
3.Types and collocation of cement tiles:
For the color of cement, most people only call it "gray" in general. But for the designer or someone who is deeply pursuing this field, the subtle differences make the feeling totally different. In the international community, there are more than 50 swatches in the generic gray system.
4.Development and prospects of cement tiles:
Cement tile is an antique brick that mimics the effect of cement. The real emergence of cement was in 1824. The British construction worker Joseph Astriddin invented cement and obtained the patent of Portland Cement.
In the 20th century, while improving the performance of Portland cement, people successfully developed a batch of cement suitable for special construction projects, such as high-alumina cement and special cement. The world's cement varieties have grown to more than 100 varieties. In 1952, China formulated the first national unified standard to determine the principle of multi-species and multi-labelling for cement production, and renamed Portland cement as the lanthanum cement according to the main mineral composition it contained, and later renamed it as silicon. Salt cement so far.
In the 1980s and 1990s, the cement floor became popular until the emergence of tiles and wood floors. The concrete floor gradually faded out of sight. In recent years, with the prevalence of minimalism, cement has begun to return.
From 2015 to 2016, cement bricks continue to receive great attention. Cement bricks such as wood grain cement and metal cement have emerged, and there are various techniques and specifications such as dry grain throwing, half throwing and all throwing. From the initial pure restoration of the cement texture, it turned into cracks, erosion, watermarks and other effects. Design elements include geometric patterns, lines, symbols, etc., and color change levels are more abundant.
