What Is Spanish Tile?
Spanish tiles come in vibrant colors that create spectacular patterns when mixed with other tiles. Dating back centuries, Spanish tiles have remained one of the most influential decorative wall and floor tile surfaces for interiors and exteriors. They combine age-old artisanal techniques in tile craftsmanship with hand-painted Spanish designs inspired by nature.
Originating in Spain and Portugal, these tiles have lasted a thousand years. They have a classic look that remains iconic even today. From traditional tiles for natural interiors to modern tiles for contemporary spaces, we offer an abundance of choices here at Country Floors. Check out the Heritage Tiles to explore more traditional tile options.
Spanish tiles are typically ceramic tiles. They typically come in the standard square format of 6″x 6″ as well as the 12″ x 12″ format for mosaic tiles. Terracotta tiles are also available. These traditional artisanal pieces look beautiful when combined with other colorful tiles and come in many shapes and sizes.
Choosing the Best Type of Tile for Your Kitchen
To achieve the most striking effect for your colorful Spanish tiles, arrange your tiles into an impressive kitchen backsplash. We have several favorite Spanish patterns that are perfect for creating a kitchen backsplash tile for your home. Spanish hand-painted tiles are traditionally in blue and white designs but also incorporate vibrant yellow, green, and red with modern designs in washed-out colors. Additionally, they combine traditional and modern techniques that have been brought up to date for modern homes. Different kitchen backsplash tile ideas are available in our blog.
