Indoor Uses for Terra Cotta
Terra cotta tile Pasadena CA is often used as an interior flooring for kitchens and living spaces. If used indoors, the terra cotta should be sealed to prevent it from absorbing water. This is especially important if you’re using terra cotta in the kitchen because it will allow you to clean the tile more easily. Terra cotta gives a nice glow to any room, and you can add even more appeal by interspersing hand-painted Mexican tiles among your terra cotta tiles.
Outdoor Uses for Terra Cotta
The earthy tones of terra cotta tile Pasadena CA make it ideal for outdoor spaces like patios or walkways. You can add detail to an outdoor staircase by tucking some painted terra cotta tiles under the risers or liven up an expansive patio by varying the sizes and orientations of the terra cotta tiles to create basket weave, herringbone, or other patterns.
