If you have ever been on vacation in the Caribbean, chances are you never wanted to leave. Since spending the rest of your life on an exotic Caribbean island isn’t possible for most people, creating your own paradise at home is the next best step. You can spice up your living space with Caribbean décor that reminds you of your favorite vacation or possibly your own home town if you are a native.
The Caribbean exudes vibrant colors that are welcoming, cheerful and relaxing. Choose colors such as vibrant green, orange, yellow, red and hues of blue for your accents and walls. Coordinating paint color for the walls with the flooring is an excellent way to create an overall Caribbean inspired look. Adding accent colors that pop fill the room with vibrancy and a variety of colors.
While plush white bedding can add a simple statement of luxury in any bedroom, it is especially suited for Caribbean-style rooms. Also filling the room with accents such as woven blinds, grasscloth walls, driftwood floor lamps, textured wallpaper, woven floor cushions, punched-iron pendant lamps, wicker furniture, print fabrics for furniture, curtains and pillows will bring the room to life and make you feel like you are in the Caribbean every day.
The artistry found in Caribbean-inspired tiles can bring an extraordinary flair to your room. Colorfully designed cement tiles are used for flooring, wall designs and counter tops. Cement tiles date back to the late 19th Century and are made of a combination of mineral pigments, marble dust, sand and cement. The perfect mixture of these materials results in durable and smooth tiles, with colorful artistry added to complete the tropical look.
At Marmol, our Cuban tiles are available in a variety of colors and designs that provide you with endless options. If you’re looking for more unique patterns, check out the Artists collection, which includes beautifully hand-painted pieces, like Elsa Ramillete and Cándido Peces. The Textured collection, which includes tiles like Octagonal and 16 Cuadros, provides a simple look but with a three dimensional feel.

Whether your room is open and large or small and cozy often makes a difference in choosing the best flooring color. Light hues, for example, often open up a small space and give it the feel of being larger. On the other hand, darker, earthy color choices for the floor can make a large and cold room feel warmer and more intimate.
