When Mission Tile West opened its doors in 1984, we sold handmade Mexican tile exclusively. After that, we expanded to carry tile from over 200 manufacturers, but we never forgot about the beauty of hand painted Mexican tile. One of our most popular products is Talavera tile. Using vibrant Talavera tile all over the inside and outside of your home or business was an important status symbol in Mexico, and this kind of hand painted tile Culver City CA continues to grace many buildings. You can use this hand-painted tile Culver City CA for:
- Shower stalls
- Tub surrounds
- Pool surrounds
- Accent pieces
Benefits of Hand Painted Tile
Like factory tile, hand painted tile Culver City 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
Our hand painted Talavera tile pairs extremely well with terra cotta tile, which is another traditional Mexican material. You might decide to tie your kitchen walls and floor together by using a border of Talavera tile around the back of the backsplash as well as peppering Talavera tiles at certain intersections of otherwise plain floor tile. 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.
