At Mission Tile West, we enjoy working with terra cotta tile because it reminds us of our deep history with Mexican design. A timeless interior design material, terra cotta tile goes well with many of the architectural styles common to California. We encourage you to visit one of our three showrooms to check out the terra cotta tile Alhambra CA that Mission Tile West carries. We stock a whole collection of Terra Bella terra cotta tile that we produce at our very own factories. The collection contains many different sizes, shapes, and styles of tile such as:
- Plain inlaid terra cotta tiles
- Glazed inlaid terra cotta tiles
- Malibu black line terra cotta decos
- Terra cotta pavers
- Terra cotta stair treads
- Terra cotta vent tiles (single or double sided)
- Hexagon, octagon, rectangle, square, brick, dot, picket shapes
Indoor Uses for Terra Cotta
While terra cotta floors are probably the most typical use of terra cotta tile Alhambra CA, you can also utilize plain terra cotta for kitchen countertops or embellished terra cotta for backsplashes and wall accents. If utilized indoors, the terra cotta needs to be sealed to keep it from absorbing water. This is particularly important if you’re using terra cotta in the kitchen because it will allow you to clean the tile more easily. While terra cotta is beautiful all by itself, you can get even more of a design impact if you pair it with authentic hand-painted Mexican tile.
Outdoor Uses for Terra Cotta
Terra cotta tile Alhambra CA also looks great in outdoor living areas. You might be surprised to discover how many different variations you can create using a couple of shapes and sizes or terra cotta tiles and various decorative tiles.
