Indoor Uses for Terra Cotta
The classic look of terra cotta tile San Marino CA can be paired with both traditional and contemporary interiors. If used inside, the terra cotta should be sealed to prevent it from absorbing water. Sealing the terra cotta is particularly important if you’re making use of it on a kitchen countertop, as you need to be able to wipe it clean. Terra cotta gives a nice glow to any room, and you can add even more appeal by interspersing hand-painted Mexican tiles into your field of terra cotta tiles.
Outdoor Uses for Terra Cotta
The earthy colors of terra cotta tile San Marino 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 add personality to an expansive patio by varying the sizes and orientations of the terra cotta tiles to create basket weave, herringbone, or other patterns.
