The Versatility of Terracotta Floor Tiles

Are you wondering where to put this rustic splendor? The best thing about real terracotta tiles is their versatility. They are like the chameleons of the design world, effortlessly blending into any setting, whether it’s a quaint cottage or a sleek modern loft. 

These versatile tiles are not limited to indoor spaces either; they also thrive in the great outdoors. With their rich, earthy hues, they have a knack for complementing various interior styles, from the laid-back vibes of a Mediterranean villa to the quirky charm of a bohemian retreat.

Diverse Palette, Endless Charm:

Terracotta is a natural material that boasts a stunning array of colors, influenced by the specific clay deposits it originates from. From sunny yellows to deep browns, with a myriad of reddish tones in between, the palette is as rich as the earth itself. Among the beloved varieties is Saltillo terracotta, crafted from the clay unearthed in the Mexican regions of Saltillo, Coahuila.

One of the enchanting qualities of terracotta tiles is their slightly weathered appearance. No two tiles are alike. This inherent diversity in color and texture imparts a relaxed, informal vibe, infusing spaces with a sense of authenticity and character.

Did I mention our terracotta floor tile designs come in 5 finishes? These are Traditional, Manganese, Antique, Spanish Mission Red, and Spanish Mission Red.  Plus, we make custom glazed terracotta tiles too!Curious to see? You can find them here!

Designing with Distinction

The pattern and shape of terracotta floor tiles can change a space’s vibe. Whether rectangles, squares, or hexagons, each shape brings its flair. Try herringbone patterns with rectangular tiles or a timeless pattern like terracotta hexagon floor tile. These decorative tile patterns are perfect for spicing up a hallway or corridor, giving off a modern vibe. 

And what about brick layouts? The formula of thin rectangles versus big square terracotta floor tiles can definitely balance the equation. If you want to do something different, there is a whole world of possibilities. Why not try a star and cross pattern in antique terracotta style? Every step will boast the resonance of centuries-old craftsmanship.

Size Matters

There are also many size options. But for an open or enclosed space with a high roof, consider a large-format terracotta floor tile, such as our 16×16 Mexican Saltillo Tile. However, you can do the vice versa for smaller bedrooms or mudrooms.
