Mexican Tiles

Posted by Rustica House on

Mexican Tiles otherwise known as talavera tiles from Mexico are hand painted in Dolores Hidalgo. Even though the most tile designs are 4"x 4", you can buy some most common patterns as 2x2 and 6x6 inches. Interior designers believe Mexican ceramic tiles have multitude of applications in decorating home interiors. Most often handmade tiles from Mexico are used for kitchen backsplash and countertops. In bathrooms you can install them on shower walls or counters and house foyer stair risers. In warmer climate such as Southern states including California, Texas or Florida handcrafted Mexican tiles can be utilized for decorating verandas and patio walls. Rustica House Mexican tiles are glazed making them water resistant. Occasionally, we have seen them used by architects on swimming pools and garden fountains as well.
