Prices shown are the base price for a relatively small order. As the size of your order increases, the cost of your tile will come down at set thresholds.
Cuban Collection cement tiles are the old-world standard of 8 inches (20cm x 20cm) square. It takes 2.3 tiles per sq ft. ....so, for example, ...100 sq ft is 100 x 2.3 =230 tiles.
The Border Edge and Corner tiles are also 8 inches (20cm x 20cm) square, even though they may look rectangle in some instances.

In August 2016 Villa Lagoon Tile's photographer/ graphic artist, Melissa Adams, and founder, Lundy Wilder, made a journey to Cuba for the express purpose of exploring and documenting a part of Cuba's rich heritage of cement tile.
Our trip was very successful. We (Melissa and Lundy) not only went to historic public buildings to make photos of tile patterns and floors but we walked along streets in Havana, Trinidad and Cienfuegos and knocked on doors and asked if we could please see and photo their floors. Cubans are very warm and inviting and they always said yes and in their enthusiasm they then often took us to other parts of their homes to see even more exquisite pattern cement tile.
It was very difficult to select only a few designs to present as our CUBAN COLLECTION. We are hoping to be able to recreate the molds and colors of additional vibrant Cuban floor tile patterns in future expansions within the CUBAN COLLECTION. Our selected Cuban tile patterns are also in our Tile Design Tool where you can experiment with your own color combinations and print a .pdf color-map of your creation.
