Mission Tile West opened in 1984, and the first kind of tile we distributed was Mexican tile handmade by one of the family. As the company expanded, we added many other styles of tile to our inventory, but we continued to carry handmade Mexican tile. For example, we offer Talavera tile. Using lively Talavera tile all over the inside and outside of your home or business was an important status symbol in Mexico, and this style of hand painted tile Los Angeles CA continues to grace many buildings. Our hand-painted tile Los Angeles CA is perfect for many applications, such as:
- Shower stalls
- Tub surrounds
- Pool surrounds
- Accent pieces
Benefits of Hand Painted Tile
Hand painted tile is a premium product that offers all the same benefits of factory tile, such as being easy to clean, durable, and long-lasting, plus the distinctiveness of being handmade. Hand painted tile Los Angeles CA features small variations from tile to tile, which helps prevent your designs from being too repetitive.
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 sprinkle small 2×2” hand painted tiles in between your terra cotta pavers on a patio or interior floor, or use larger tiles as a border around a tub or backsplash. While blue and white are the traditional colors for this style of hand painted tile, our line of Talavera tile also includes yellow, red, green, and black so you can pair it with more color schemes. We offer solid tiles as well as decorated tiles featuring flowers, birds, geometric patterns, and other traditional motifs.
