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
