Way #1 – Handcrafted Tiles for Accent Walls
Elevate your bedroom with eye-catching design statements using traditional Mexican tiles on an accent wall.
Creating an accent wall is a simple and cost-effective way to transform your space. Bold wallpapers, wood paneling, painted murals, and more are all viable options. But a most excellent choice is to use handmade Mexican ceramic tiles to create an accent wall behind the bed’s headboard or a contrasting border. These artisan tiles are a popular choice for homes due to their versatility and ease of installation and cleaning.
The Home Depot’s senior merchant, Tony Castellano, praises Mexican ceramic tiles for their wide range of styles that can suit any design preference. Moreover, ceramic tiles offer great value for budget-friendly renovations.
Way #2 -Change Carpet to Artisanal Mexican Ceramic Tiles
One Apartment Therapy post points out that today, carpet is “often seen as outdated, dingy, and even unsanitary, trapping pests, dust, and moisture deep below the surface.” For those who wish to do away with carpeting in the bedroom, Mexican-style floors are a go-to approach. In fact, they adorn homes with an excellent, eye-catching solution that allows for more creativity.
According to one HGTV article, installing Mexican clay tiles in the bedroom can work well if you live in a warm climate and enjoy a Mediterranean or tropical decorating style. But also, Clay tile floors are noted to work well in bedrooms decorated in a modern or contemporary style, too. “From a structural standpoint, tile works best in bedrooms on the house’s first floor or in a room built on a concrete slab. These rooms aren’t prone to shifting and settling, which can cause tile to crack,” advises the article.
According to the installation pros at Rustico, “avoid any issues of upper-level floors having cracked tiles by using proper crack prevention membranes and high-quality thinsets.”

Plus, clay tile, like terracotta bedroom flooring, allows for a range of creativity. It creates unique designs to transform the look and feel of the room through various colors, patterns, and finishes. With that in mind, a range of options can be found. Explore a modern, gray, and brown tile like Manganese Saltillo. Or check out terracotta Mexican floor tile known as Traditional Saltillo. These Mexican terracotta floors give your bedroom a natural and warm feel.
Regardless of what Mexican style tile you choose, however, the benefits of replacing your carpet include an easy-to-clean, beautiful floor. Plus, it’s equally as simple to maintain for years to come.
Way #3 – Refresh the Guest Bedroom with Artisan Tile
Refresh a bedroom in various innovative ways. First, add multi-functional furniture pieces. For instance, furniture can make for a fantastic design solution when looking to complement beautiful clay tile floors or an accent wall. That especially works if your guest bedroom doubles as a home office space. For example, a convertible sofa sleeper will allow comfortable seating in an office space. But also, it easily changes into a twin-size sleeper to accommodate guests.
Not wanting to tile an entire floor? A Better Homes & Gardens post highlights a variety of projects that allows you to bring handmade tile into a room in subtle ways. For example, great choices include a revamped coffee table that features patterned tiling like decorative cement tiles. Or consider refreshing a vintage headboard with penny tiles. Such projects bring a pop of color and personality to any bedroom.
And if you already have decorative Mexican tiles throughout your home, use the leftovers. These can create unique accent pieces perfect for coordinating a guest room with the rest of your home’s vibe.
Handcrafted Mexican tile can make for an aesthetically pleasing solution when looking to update a bedroom. Whether replacing old carpet or wanting to incorporate an eye-catching design through an accent wall (or other features in the room), artisan tiles allow for endless options.
