When Mission Tile West opened its doors in 1984, we offered handcrafted Mexican tile exclusively. Now we have many different styles of tile, but we still stock a very good selection of Mexican hand painted tile. For example, we offer Talavera tile. Much like majolica, Talavera tile consists of designs painted over a milky white base. This type of hand painted tile Tarzana CA harmonizes with many architectural styles found in southern California. This versatile hand-painted tile Tarzana CA looks wonderful just about anywhere you use it, like:
- 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. The human touch is apparent in hand painted tile Tarzana CA, and so it is able to deliver a sense of warmth and craftsmanship to your space.
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 might tuck a row of colorful Talavera tiles beneath each riser of a terra cotta staircase, or line your pool or hot tub with Talavera tile. Although the most traditional colors for Talavera tile are blue and white, our selection of hand painted tile also includes green, red, yellow, and black. This improves the versatility of the tile because it can match many different decors. You can choose abstract designs or birds or flowers, depending on your tastes.
