Blocks 5.0

At first glance, Blocks 5.0 may appear like just another concrete look, however it’s so much more! Blocks 5.0 combines the aesthetics of concrete, metal and wood, then antiques the finish, giving the impression they’ve been worn over time. As you look closely at the various colorways, there is the subtle detailing of wood grain, reminiscent of a more prominent board-formed aesthetic. There is also a great deal of depth in the color palette; White has subtle grey tones mixed in with it to create dimension, Dark’s cool black tones are balanced with the softness of chocolate browns.


This collection can work with many applications including lobbies, kitchens, bathrooms – you name it. The range of sizes also allows you to create color on color patterns with the 6”x36” and 18”x36”. (6”x36” could border a large field of 18”x36” or the have a grouping of 6”x36” in herringbone pattern create a path through the 18”x36” field). Another unique element to the collection is the Wood colorway – perfect if you’re looking to cover a wall with a reclaimed wood aesthetic but don’t want to deal with the cumbersome nature of reclaimed wood. With this tile, you know what you will get, and for a restaurant or bathroom application it is perfect because it is easy to clean.
