Why Nate Berkus And Jeremiah Brent Love This 200-Year-Old Tile
When HGTV stars Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent renovated their family home, they made the decision to incorporate 200 year old concrete black-and-white Spanish tiles.
Located on the second-floor entrance of their Greenwich Village apartment, the striking tiles are showcased within the entryway and partially extend into the formal dining room.
Concrete tiles are beautiful and timeless, but they are also made to withstand a variety of high-traffic areas. This is why Berkus and Brent put it in their entrance.
While Berkus says they chose it because, "It mixes from very traditional to super, super modern,” Brent says they chose this tile because, "they're actually really durable."
Concrete is one of the top contenders for strength and longevity compared to other natural materials like granite or marble, and is a material that’s both simple and elegant.
