When Mission Tile West launched in 1984, we sold handcrafted Mexican tile exclusively. Since that time, we expanded to sell tile from over 200 manufacturers, but we never stopped loving hand painted Mexican tile. For example, we have Talavera tile. This kind of hand painted tile Altadena CA represents one of Mexico’s finest ceramic traditions and offers a fantastic way to add personality to any property. Our professional design consultants will be happy to help you brainstorm uses for this gorgeous hand painted tile Altadena CA, like:
- Shower stalls
- Tub surrounds
- Pool surrounds
- Accent pieces
Benefits of Hand Painted Tile
Like factory tile, hand painted tile Altadena CA offers a cool, easy-to-clean, durable surface that will last longer than carpet and wear better than wood. Because this tile is hand painted, it gives a human touch to large expanses of tile and prevents it from looking institutional or cold.
Designing with Hand Painted Tile
Talavera tile is most frequently used as decorative tile, and it is often paired with terra cotta tile on floors. You can use single Talavera tiles to create a checkerboard pattern on a wall or floor, or use a group of them to mimic the look of an area rug or a mural. Although the most traditional colors for Talavera tile are blue and white, our selection of hand painted tile also includes green, red, yellow, and black. This improves the versatility of the tile because it can match many different decors. You can choose abstract designs or birds or flowers, depending on your tastes.
