Don’t be afraid they’ll get chippedChips and cracks shouldn’t be a problem, according to our experts. Leathlean says, “If encaustic cement tiles are laid on a perfectly flat surface, they won’t crack.” Brooke agrees, “You’re unlikely to get big cracks and chips unless you drop something very heavy on them!” However, if your tiles do crack, Leathlean reassures, “The colour goes to at least 5mm deep into each encaustic tile, which means it shouldn’t be affected.” Harvey agrees and says that, after sanding, you should “seal where the crack is to avoid any further stains”.For really severe cracks, Brooke says, “If you’re working with a reclaimed floor, you can remove and fix the tile and then replace it. A new tile may be needed if it’s unsalvageable and on a new floor.”Tell us…What are your experiences of caring for patterned cement tiles? Share your advice and thoughts in the Comments section.

Love this color contrast, perhaps for the boys bathroom?
