Modernize your home or commercial space with concrete-look tile. Unlike concrete tile or poured cement, concrete-look tile is durable, stain-resistant, relatively easy for professional tile installers to install, and easy for you to clean. Icon concrete-look tile is made from porcelain, and its large size creates a seamless look, enhancing any room in your home or business. With Icon porcelain tile, your space will instantly evoke a contemporary look.

Open-Concept Living Spaces

An open-concept space is the perfect canvas for Icon stone tiles. The large tile size can spread across your entire floor to create a cohesive and contemporary open-concept space. Tie your kitchen and living room together with a unique concrete-look flooring. These large tiles are durable and easy to clean, which makes them perfect for kitchens and high-traffic living areas. Icon porcelain tiles come in three versatile tones, silver, smoke, and black, so they enhance your rooms' style, instead of clashing with it.

Modern Office Buildings

Updating your office building with concrete-look floors is like finally finding a suit that fits right. It instantly looks modern, sleek, and put-together. Large concrete-look tile is perfect for spacious office buildings. It’s timeless and neutral, yet still effortlessly stylish. It's a low-maintenance floor choice that can handle bustling offices and high-heeled traffic. Concrete-look tile will help your office make a good first impression. For a modern two-toned look that dresses up your office, choose the smoke tile for the floor and the silver tone for an accent wall behind the welcome desk.   

Another modern option is to use the Icon series as exterior cladding for an outdoor transformation as well.

Icon Hexagon Tile Accents

For anyone who loves the idea of this concrete-look series but is still searching for an option that has a little more zing, check out the hexagon pattern. It has the same durability and practicality, but with a punch of personality. The honeycomb design adds texture and dimension to floors, walls, or any other spacious areas in your home or commercial space. You can even pair a rectangular Icon wall tile with the hexagon pattern on the floor for a neutral-toned space that still has visual intrigue and style.

Industrial Lofts

Achieve that classic industrial loft-look without the hassle or permanence of pouring concrete. Concrete-look floor tiles fit seamlessly into spacious lofts to evoke the esteemed industrial style. This porcelain series fits right in with exposed brick, wood accents, potted plants, and the stylish people who live there. If you don't have exposed brick or wood yet either, you can always add another look-alike tile to your space with porcelain wood-look or brick-look, too.

Steam Showers With Icon Wall Tile

Use concrete-look tiles to turn your bathroom into a luxurious contemporary spa. In a space that is typically stark and white, a smokey grey, black, or silver will be a welcome twist on the traditional washroom palette. Imagine a steam shower with modern porcelain tiles inside your home.

Like a waterfall streaming over stones, a concrete-look shower has a beautiful natural look that elevates your bathroom into an oasis. The large tile size is perfect for spacious showers, but there is also a small 2 x 2 mosaic size option that works great in any sized shower. 

Statement Fireplaces

Bring a crackling fire and cool aesthetic into your home with a statement fireplace that's adorned with concrete-look tile. If you prefer a modern style instead of rustic, concrete-look tile can solve your design problems. The cool-toned porcelain provides a beautiful contrast next to the warmth of the fire.
