The classic checkerboard floor, seen throughout centuries and cultures from around the world, is making it's showing here at Historic Decorative Materials.  We bring to you a reclaimed Italian cement tile that has a beautiful color palette of creamy white + steel grey.   The soft patina hues with it's geometric pattern is both neutral and versatile. These antique reclaimed cement tiles will lend structure to an airily expansive foyer or kitchen as well as create artistic appeal to a small space like a powder or mudroom.  Reclaimed cement tiles are beloved for it's saturated, opaque colors and satin patina that catches the light ever so slightly.  The authentic patina is raised only with time and footprints, thus introducing incredible history into one's home.  

A beautiful partnership to compliment this reclaimed antique Italian cement tile is the Kings of France 18th Century French Oak Flooring Country House Collection in Vintage Grey.   The warm grey tones of this French oak flooring shares colors with the steele grey and cream colors of the reclaimed cement tiles - allowing for a warm + cool color palette that resides in soft quiet neutrals.

Another historic interior is using the pattern on pattern aesthetic which can be beautifully achieved by installing our reclaimed Italian antique cement tiles with our Carriage House 14th Century English Encaustic Tile Collection.  The shared cream and grey hues with pattern will create a classic English Cotswold aesthetic.  Installing a Shaker style kitchen and painting the cabinetry in an eggshell paint using a complimentary or contrasting color would be outstanding.

Recommended Sealer after Installation:  Akemi Stone Impregnation for French Reclaimed Terra Cotta Tile Flooring 

Cleaning and Maintenance:  Vacuum, then clean with Black Soap (Savon Noir) to disinfect, maintain, protect and enhance patina.
