Bharat Floor­ings


Bharat Floor­ings and Tiles in col­lab­o­ra­tion with LeMill has in­tro­duced a new range of dec­o­ra­tive ce­ment tiles. This co­branded col­lec­tion has been de­signed by Aure­lie De Cort, a vis­ual ge­nius and trained artist who has spent 10 years de­sign­ing the much talked about win­dow dis­plays of Her­mès stores in France and in­ter­na­tion­ally on be­half of LeMill. Th­ese tiles have been in­spired by the al­ley­ways and pub­lic spa­ces of Aure­lie's home coun­try of Bel­gium. The tiles marry the aes­thet­ics of Europe with mod­ern In­dian sen­si­bil­i­ties while as­sures to keep any home up to date on in­ter­na­tional trends. Th­ese dec­o­ra­tive ce­ment tiles of­fer a range of de­signs and colours that can give a floor a her­itage look, an art deco look, a mod­ern look or any­thing in be­tween or be­yond, de­pend­ing on the sense of aes­thet­ics, taste and style. In other words, floors cre­ated from th­ese ce­ment tiles are cus­tom­iz­a­ble to a great ex­tent and add to the beauty and charm of the floor.


Un­like ce­ramic tiles which are kiln-fired fin­ished prod­ucts and come in pre-se­lected de­signs and colours, ce­ment tiles are hand­crafted from a base of ce­ment, with sten­cilled pat­terns brought to life from col­or­ful pig­ments. Th­ese are then placed un­der heavy hy­draulic pres­sure and cured in wa­ter to add com­pact­ness and strength mak­ing them both beau­ti­ful and durable.


The beauty of a ce­ment-tiled floor lies in the cre­ative use of de­signs, pat­terns and colours used to cre­ate the floor from com­bi­na­tions of tiles. That’s be­cause, in most cases, an in­di­vid­ual ce­ment tile with a geo­met­ric shape or pat­tern in two or more colours is only a part of the over­all de­sign. The en­tire look of, or pat­tern on, the floor is cre­ated/formed when th­ese ce­ment tiles are in­stalled in a de­sired, pre-de­signed ar­range­ment. LeMill has de­vel­oped a range of 3 pat­terns with Bharat Floor­ings. Th­ese are as be­low:

1. The Ar­lecchino de­sign

2. The Bayadere de­sign

3. The Pi­azza de­sign All the three pat­terns can be laid out in a num­ber of in­ter­est­ing ways, to get dif­fer­ent mo­tifs and shapes on the floor and walls
