Terracotta Floor Tiles In Rustic Home Decor
patterns, shapes & sizes
Terracotta as a design trend has made something of a resurgence in recent years. One of the most popular ways that homeowners add a touch of terracotta to their homes is with terracotta floor tiles.
They are excellent ways to achieve a rustic home decor style in any house, thanks to their earthy and toasty burnt orange tones.
Let’s jump in.
Clay Tile Patterns
Throughout North America and Mexico, Saltillo tiles are the top choice for people that want durable yet affordable terracotta floor tiles. At Rustico Tile & Stone, we offer many different patterns of Saltillo tiles.
For example, you could create picket patterns: they are two-tile patterns that are a timeless classic for anyone looking to create a rustic home decor theme in their homes. In fact, the picket pattern is comprised of an 8×8-inch square and a 4×12 inch picket tile.
Also, another popular choice is the Octagon pattern. This terracotta floor is perfect to create an iconic-looking Mexican style floor when paired with colorful painted Talavera tiles.

Lastly, terracotta floor tiles are available in numerous sizes for all your tiling needs. Size examples include 3×3, 8×8, 12×12, and even 24×24. Also, we offer many sizes in between. Plus, we can also create custom size tiles for any unique requirements.
Our rule of thumb is this. Select the largest size tile that your budget allows. But for small or choppy spaces, consider smaller format tiles. At the end of the day, choose the size tile that you like best in your space!
