Indoor Uses for Terra Cotta
While terra cotta floors are probably the most popular use of terra cotta tile Culver City CA, you can also use plain terra cotta for kitchen countertops or embellished terra cotta for backsplashes and wall accents. One unusual thing about terra cotta is that this material absorbs water, so you need to seal it or else use only fully glazed terra cotta indoors. Creating an impermeable surface is particularly important for terra cotta tile used in places like kitchens that must be kept sanitary. While terra cotta is beautiful all by itself, pairing it with Mexican hand-painted tile will provide an even greater design impact.
Outdoor Uses for Terra Cotta
The natural colors of terra cotta tile Culver City CA make it ideal for outdoor areas like patios or walkways. Add a unique pattern to a patio or walkway, encircle your pool with an absorbent deck of terra cotta tile, or use painted Mexican tiles to create borders and achieve an outdoor space you can be proud of.
