The bathroom is one of the rooms in which you can afford a particular atmosphere or an offbeat decoration. Today, you can dress up the floor and walls with a variety of coverings: specific wallpapers for wet rooms, small or maxi size porcelain tiles, earthenware or fancy mosaics. All with neutral, monochrome, bright colors or original patterns.

Therefore, the technical question of installing cement tiles in a bathroom often arises.

Can cement tiles be installed in a bathroom ?

Yes, cement tiles can be installed in a bathroom.

However, this material cannot be installed anywhere in the bathroom and requires certain maintenance requirements.

As for kitchen, hallway, living room or bedroom fittings made of cement tiles, we strongly advise against the use of acidic cleaning products such as bleach, white vinegar, linseed oil or black soap. We recommend the use of a neutral Marseille soap or clear tempered water.

You can find our detailed maintenance advice in the Treatment advice section.

As a manufacturer for over 30 years, we do not recommend the installation of carocim in shower floors for the following reasons :

  • Cement tiles being material tiles, despite the waterproofing treatment, cannot be maintained with anti-limescale products, bleach or white vinegar
  • The deposit of limestone can not be removed
  • The floor will not have the necessary anti-slip properties
