Contemporary Board Form Concrete Tiles - Plank form tiles are perfect for walls, floors, vertical or horizontal surfaces made by MODE CONCRETE in Kelowna BC

Plank Form Concrete Tiles

When merging the raw elements of concrete with wood, you get a striking balance between natural and man-made products. 

Board-formed concrete is poured into forms and left to cure, leaving the wood grain behind and allowing the concrete to have some seepage between the planks.  After everything is stripped, the natural wood grain is left imprinted into the concrete after the forms are removed and highlighted by the application of sealers and specialized finishing treatments which bring out the texturing of the wood and the natural colors in the concrete.  

Modern large format tiles easily create a dynamic, contemporary statement.  Our high quality, high performance concrete is our trademark creation of local and eco-friendly materials.  All of our concrete products are artistically and mindfully created.  We magically combine our love for natural raw concrete, with strong lines and architectural appeal, then add some strong Canadian pride and an even stronger environmental focus.  And tada... that is what our company and our products are all about.  

These tiles above are long thin concrete tiles that were custom made and then hand stained numerous times, sealed and then applied to the wall (similar to tile installation).  In this application, we staggered the joints and created a back-splash in the kitchen.  These would also be great applied in the bathroom or on a fire-place feature wall, interior or exterior, virtually anywhere you can apply tile.  Our concrete products are waterproof, durable, custom made and one-of-a-kind artisan created!

The quality of our products are extraordinary, have incredible longevity and are too stunning for words.  MODE CONCRETE offers luxury, high-end large-format concrete tiles.  All of our original, hand-cast concrete products are individually created, designed and fabricated in Kelowna BC, Canada.  Stained, colored and finished to your preference - many options available to achieve the 'look' you are going for.
