Indoor and outdoor use
Our products can be used in wet areas which are exposed to frost, as well as in kitchens, bathrooms, terraces and as indoor covering. Our unique cement tiles comply with EU standards related to external use, which are more stringent than those related to the internal use, as well as the corresponding Hungarian standards.
Use in wet areas
Our encaustic cement tiles are weather resistant according to the extent of the standard related to external use. On the other hand, it is recommended to seal the encaustic cement tiles in wet areas during installation. If you would like we are happy to recommend a sealer during purchasing.
Using handmade cement tiles over under floor heating
Yes, cement tiles can be installed in rooms with under floor heating. The 16 mm tiles warm up, while they cool down slowly.
Cement tile sizes
The width and length of the cement tiles are 200x200mm. The thickness of the handmade cement tiles is 16 mm, which means that they are thicker than most commercially available tiles.
The governing European warranty terms and conditions are applicable to our tiles. Some of those old mosaic tiles, which were installed in tenement houses of Budapest, are more than one hundred years old, while their patterns are still beautiful and they function as they should. We ensure 100-150 year lifespan in case of professional installation and proper use.
Cement tile prices
Encaustic cement tiles can be purchased from couple of EUR via online community markets. In addition, some cement tile companies sell tiles with cement tile pattern for 30-50 EUR per square meter. So what is difference between them?
Mostly old and used encaustic cement tile pieces can be purchased for couple of EUR via online community markets. These are genuine cement tiles with 16-18-20 mm thickness. The patterned and pigmented surface layer of these tiles is 4-6 mm thick which had lost their original appearance and had become worn-out and shiny. If you find tiles which look like this, you can be quite sure that you have purchased genuine handcrafted cement tiles.
You can also find tiles with cement tile pattern for 30-50 EUR per square meter. These are mostly white painted ceramic tiles, which are 6-8 mm thick. We might say about these tiles that they look like, with slight exaggeration, as if the pattern was made by a liquid inkjet printer and then burnt which means that the thickness of the pattern is measured in fraction of millimeter. The durability of these tiles and wear resistance of the pattern are far away from the 100-150 year lifespan of the handcrafted cement tile. Of course, the price of these tiles differs from the price of the genuine tiles.
The patterned and pigmented surface layer of the decorative cement tiles is manually pressed, made from powdered marble and coloured in its material. As a result of this technique, the colour of these tiles still remains the same, even though they are used for 5-10-100 years. These finest cement tiles are made one-by-one in our manufactory. Therefore the manufacturing of encaustic cement tiles is a manual labour intensive process. That is the reason why the cost of these cement tiles per square meter is at least 60-100 EUR.
If we have been able to convince you to purchase encaustic cement tiles, we must admit that you will find a wide range of prices when you will search for cement tiles. Cement tiles, terrazzo tiles – shall comply with every clause of European standards related to internal (EN 13748-1:2004) and external (EN 13748-2:2004) use. The standards are applicable to/include the width, length, thickness of the tiles as well as to the braking strength, abrasion, weather resistance and non-slip on wet surface. If you choose a tile which is recommended for indoor use, it is most likely to be cheaper than those tiles which can be used both indoor and outdoor. Furthermore, it is worth asking the cement tile company which tiles they recommend to buy which are easy to cut and do not crumble (etc.) because these factors also have an impact on the price.

In case of ordering in-stock encaustic cement tile the minimum quantity of the order is one box, which contains 15 tiles, equals to 0.6 m2. The minimum manufacturing quantity order is 4 boxes, in case of ordering patterns and colours which are in our collection.
