Custom Kitchen Backsplash – Berkeley, CA

Lane McNab of Urban Orchard Interiors in Berekeley, CA loves to create beautiful and functional spaces that have a sense of authenticity, meaning and character to the people living there as well as the home itself. Lane was kind enough to share pictures from a recent installation of some of our handmade cement tiles.

The craftsman house involved in the project is over 100 years old. It’s a brown shingle craftsman very typical of the local homes and the owners are bringing it back to life little by little. The owners are both wonderful cooks (she’s French so of course!) and spend a lot of time in their well-used kitchen. The home was updated sometime in the 80’s and was ready for a serious face-lift. The clients wanted to incorporate a French/Moroccan style with the architectural elements of a craftsman. We think they succeeded!


Urban Orchard Interiors - Before


Urban Orchard used our Algeria cement tile pattern, in custom colors, to create a beautiful backsplash in the kitchen. A doorway and closet were moved to make the stove and cement tile the kitchen’s focal point as you enter the room.

We’d like to thank Urban Orchard for the pictures. Please check out their blog!

Leader Builders – Mid-Century Modern

Leader Builders in Bend, Oregon used our handmade cement tile in an amazing Mid-Century Modern project. The husband/wife team at Leader has over 30 years experience designing and constructing new homes. We think you’ll agree that this project is worth a closer look and shows the versatility of our cement tiles!

Our Dubois cement tile pattern was used beautifully in the kitchen backsplash to continue the mid-century design from the living area through to the kitchen and tie the entire space together.

The tile used in this project was 8″ x 8″, but our tiles can be customized in many sizes and colors. Please contact Cement Tile Shop at (800) 704-2701 to incorporate cement tile into your backsplash or for more information.
