Terra Cotta Flooring Ideas for Your Home

I accidentally got into the terra cotta flooring business by stumbling across a few tiles I tried to sell on eBay many years ago. I was successful…sold a lot of them.

Now, over 200K (happy) customers later, we’ve seen a lot of terra cotta flooring. So, we’re sharing what’s stood the test of time and looks best. I hope that you’ll find something to use for your terracotta floor project.

We won’t bore you with the ‘how it’s done’ details. We have other posts for that.

This is a quick read because videos and pictures of terracotta floors tell the best story.

Patterns, Shapes, & Sizes

Long gone are the days of boring 12×12 Mexican tiles. While square tiles are a classic approach to rustic-style floors, consider making a bold statement with decorative tile patterns.  One of our favorite aspects of artisan, handmade tiles is the variety of patterns, shapes, and sizes.

For example, hexagon terracotta tile floors have been around for generations but still trend in popularity today. Our Riviera pattern is a 2-tile floor pattern that WOWs upon impact. Also, another fan favorite is the octagon terra cotta flooring pattern. Because terracotta tiles look so beautiful with Mexican Talavera tile, this pattern is integral to rustic home décor.
