Cement tiles – Carrelages du Marais

March 6, 2011

As mentioned in an earlier post, cement tiles are a typical feature of many Brussels town houses, and we have some too. These tiles are often in a bad state though, because they crack easily, and in our case we have a few gaps after the renovation that we need to fill, due to moving some floors.

So we were happy to notice this shop had opened in Brussels, which has a tremendous selection of these tiles, really allowing you to recreate an authentic atmosphere: http://www.carrelagesdumarais.com/ (they’re also in Paris, Lille and Nantes).

We will see if we can find a few tiles to mend our floor in a way that works, but if we should need later to replace it, it’s good to know we can do so in the original style!

Here are a few photos from that store of things that took our fancy. They also go glazed tiles and old-style washbasins in terrazzo.
