Indoor Uses for Terra Cotta
Terra cotta tile Sierra Madre CA is often used as a flooring material for kitchens and living spaces. One unusual aspect of terra cotta is that this material absorbs water, so you need to seal it or else use only fully glazed terra cotta indoors. This is especially important if you’re using terra cotta in the kitchen because sealed tile is easier to 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 Sierra Madre CA make it ideal for outdoor areas 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 patterns.
