What are Encaustic Tiles?

Encaustic tiles are a type of concrete tile. Handmade using traditional techniques, these tiles are well known for their luxurious dusty colour tones and dynamic patterns. Wet cement mixtures are prepared and dyed before being poured into custom steel moulds to create the dynamic patterns these tiles are so well known for. The tiles are then passed through a hydraulic press where they are hardened almost instantly, resulting in an ultra-durable concrete tile that can be used in a wide variety of applications throughout the home.

Traditional encaustic tiles were often used in period style homes to add a sense of character to a space that would complement the architecture of the building. These tiles featured rich colours and repeating motifs to create a sense of pattern. Modern iterations of these types of tiles introduce a wider variety of colours and contemporary patterns, adding a modern touch to these elegant and timeless designer tiles.

Caring for your Tiles

Encaustic tiles offer an immensely durable and long lasting finish in the home. These thick, strong and versatile tiles will last a lifetime with the right care and maintenance, ensuring a luxurious finish in any application. Being made of concrete, encaustic tiles are porous in nature. This means that their surface contains tiny holes (or pores) that can absorb liquid or powder spills and become clogged, stained or discoloured if not properly cared for. The best way to care for encaustic tiles and ensure their longevity in the home is to maintain their sealant. When your new tiles are received, they should be sealed prior to installation as tile adhesives or grouts may cause discolouration. Seal your tiles and let them dry out completely before laying. Once your encaustic tiles are laid, seal them again to ensure a quality installation. After this, your encaustic tiles should be sealed every few years or so, depending on their wear. When cleaning encaustic tiles, proper cleaning products that are suitable for use with these types of tiles should be used and harsh or abrasive products are best avoided; for a complete guide to caring for your new encaustic tiles, visit our Resources page.
