8×8 Hexagon Manganese Saltillo Tile

What’s not to love about Hexagon shaped tile?!  It’s cool yet funky.  In this traditional kitchen with saltillo tile floors, our Oklahoma customer installed the manganese saltillo tile finish.  With this color option, you can see the blend of brown and terracotta shades of colors throughout.  It’s paired well with blue and green hues as well as evidence of of a busy family life!  (To my knowledge – she has 7 kids!  That’s a lot of cooking!)

12×12 Antique Saltillo Tile with grout left in texture for added color

Here is a great example of Antique Saltillo Tile.  It’s made to look like reclaimed terracotta flooring with an old-world look.  There something very cool about Antique Saltillo Tile!  In this photo, our customer left charcoal grout left behind in the texture of the tile.  This makes it take on an even older feel.  If you’ll glance down at the photo below, you can see Antique Saltillo floor tiles installed normally – no grout left behind in the texture.  And voila – it’s 2 different looks for the same tile!

Shiny, robust, and sophisticated yet rustic.  It’s really hard to beat the look of kitchens with saltillo tile floors made up of square tiles.  Here is our best seller.  It’s a 12×12 super sealed saltillo tile in the Traditional color finish.  Our customer in south Austin, TX sealed this floor with the gloss finish TerraNano topcoat sealer.  (Check some this post about the importance of quality topcoat sealer. It’s a big deal.)

    How does the cost compare with engineered wood?

    Also any comment on how terra-cotta would look with dark espresso kitchen cabinets?

    Hi Valerie – I’m a huge fan of Saltillo tile with dark wood! In fact, all 3 Saltillo tile colors are complimentary alongside wood.

    Hi Valerie – I can’t speak to the cost of engineered wood. But, Saltillo tile is known to be an affordable flooring option. It’s on the lower end of pricing for custom flooring. We offer wholesale prices and we ship worldwide. To get a price estimate for your project, just fill out this short FORM or give us a call!
