Saltillo Tile Colors and Finishes

We offer high-quality, authentic Mexican clay tile in three fantastic Saltillo colors and finishes, each producing its own range of colors.

Saltillo colors brings every space to life.  You can give a living room the “Old-World” feel of Antique Saltillo finish. Or, mix your existing neutral kitchen design scheme with the stark color contrasts of Manganese Saltillo.  Create a new hacienda-inspired pool deck with Traditional Saltillo. Each of the Saltillo colors offers endless ways to design your home style. You can even mix different finishes for a floor that has several colors. This look combines modern and rustic styles.

Depending on where the tile was placed among other tiles when it was fired, the Saltillo colors can be light to dark shades. Smaller Saltillo tile sizes will burn darker in color than larger tiles. Some tiles will have a striped pattern, which happens when tiles are stacked when they are fired in the kiln. Sealed Saltillo tiles are darker in color than Unsealed Saltillo tiles. If left unsealed, all three finishes of the Saltillo clay are lighter, and more pastel in color.

All Saltillo tile shapes and sizes are available in any of these finishes. We offer tiles in a wide variety of beautiful patterns, shapes, and sizes.

Traditional Finish

Traditional Saltillo tiles come in a wide range of Terra Cotta colors. You will find tones from red and orange, to yellow and gold. This finish goes well with many styles and colors used in home decorating.

Also known as Terra Cotta, our Traditional Saltillo is our best value finish. It works well in commercial and residential spaces.  It can be used indoors and outdoors, with proper installation. The Traditional Saltillo style is ideal in spaces with design themes such as southwestern, western, hacienda, beach, and rustic.

Invite an element of sophistication and luxury to your dining room with Traditional Saltillo til in our Riviera pattern. Blend vibrant colors of Cement tiles with large, square Saltillo tiles.  This will give your kitchen a more spacious and elegant feel.  Check out our Traditional Saltillo Tile Photo Gallery.

Manganese Finish

Manganese Saltillo floor tiles come in many shades of Terra Cotta. The manganese finish tends to be light to dark brown in color. It can also have Terra Cotta colors that come through to the surface. Manganese Mexican tiles can have some black swirling that mixes with the Terra Cotta color. This creates a marbled look. This finish is excellent for both rustic and modern spaces. Pair with light cabinets or walls for a light/dark contrast often seen in contemporary spaces. Select hexagon Saltillo tiles in Managanese finish for a natural contrast of light and dark shades. This will bring a modern/vintage look to your new kitchen.

Our Manganese Saltillo finish works well in both commercial and residential spaces.  With proper sub-floor preparation and maintenance, this tile is great for both indoor and outdoor spaces.  Check out our Manganese Saltillo Tile Photo Gallery.

Antique Finish

Antique Saltillo floor tile has the appearance of Old-World Saltillo. It is textured and darker in color.  It also reveals the rust and Terra Cotta range of colors. Our rustic Saltillo tiles are custom made to look like a reclaimed clay tile.  They are designed in the style of historic Mexican pavers or Antique Terra Cotta tile. This finish works very well in rustic, Old-World spaces.  It’s similar to reclaimed Terra Cotta – at a fraction of the cost. Some homeowners decide to install Antique Saltillo flooring with dark grout. They may purposefully leave grout behind in the texture surface to create an even older look.

Each tile is hand-textured, making it ideal for non-slip surfaces. It is excellent for  outdoor or wet areas. Antique Saltillo is ideal for patios and pool decks. This finish also works well in commercial and residential spaces. It is great for indoor and outdoor spaces, with proper installation. Add some rustic charm to any space in your home with beautiful Antique Saltillo floor tiles.  Check out our Antique Saltillo Tile Photo Gallery.

Why Buy Pre-Sealed Saltillo Tile

At Rustico Tile and Stone, we are the largest manufacturer of authentic Saltillo tile. All our tile comes from the Mexican city of Saltillo, Coahuila. Our authentic Saltillo tile is of the highest quality, made from a very durable Mexican clay. Each tile is handmade to absorb moisture easily. All Saltillo tiles are fired in a kiln and cooled. They can then be sealed with several layers of our low gloss finish, oil-based industrial sealer. Or, they can be left “raw” or Unsealed. You can buy both Pre-Sealed and Unsealed authentic Saltillo tile.

Some customers need to stain their tile to achieve a different color. Others need to match an older, existing floor. If you don’t need to do either, we recommend buying Pre-Sealed Saltillo tile. We ship it ready to install, and buying pre-sealed will be less costly in the long-run.  Get a quote online today.
