The cement tile, the new trend this year, is showcased once again
Long shunned in favour of parquet floors and traditional tiles, the cement tile is back in fashion with retro patterns: interlacing flowers and arabesques, black and white squares, etc. These patterns recall old tiling and add colour to our interiors. This material is part of the current trend to blend modern and contemporary styles. There is a wide selection of patterns available to give a unique identity to a wall or even a piece of furniture. Using one of these elements helps to define the space in a room, create optical illusions or showcase a corridor. It is the latest essential decoration material that can add style and added value to the home at reasonable price!
The cement tile appeared at the end of the 19th century in the South of the France. It rapidly became very popular in both the south and the north of France.
The tiles are made of cement, marble powder and pigments. The tiles produced from this method are extremely resistant. Furthermore, since the pattern is through-coloured, the surface of the tile acquires a patina over time, becomes more decorative and improves the satin-like appearance. The more the cement tile is used, the more beautiful it becomes!

A glass partition creates a light office! Use a glass partition to create an office area in part of the living room, thereby insulating it from the noise in the room, while retaining the same levels of light.
In the same way as the office, an additional bedroom can be added to a corner of the living room. In this case, it will create an additional insulated room, but still allow natural light to enter the room. The bedroom will therefore be a pleasant living space that is bathed in light, but can also be forgotten, due to the transparency of the glass partition.
Of course, the glass partition is also an important decorative addition in its own right, with its workshop feel, but also because of its versatility! It has all the advantages of a separate room, such as reduced noise, but without any of the drawbacks, such as low light levels.
