Reasons to Buy Terracotta Effect Tiles
Create the traditional farmhouse look
Natural terracotta consists of a type of clay flattened, cut to shape, and baked. It was widely available in times prior to the industrial production of porcelain tiles, and was used in most rural homes. Hence why today terracotta and clay tiles have come to be seen as ‘traditional’. They’re also associated with achieving the farmhouse look in a kitchen or bathroom; put can also carry this theme on into the hallway, dining area and living room. Terracotta tiles – often brown or orange in colour – help to add a warm tone into an interior area.
Since terracotta tiles are made from natural materials and are porous, they require some treatment and maintenance to prevent them getting stained or water damaged. However, in the modern day, we know home owners prefer a zero maintenance approach. That’s why we play host to a selection of lifelike terracotta effect tiles for use throughout your home. Made from porcelain, they are perfect for introducing the terracotta look to any kitchen, bathroom, hallway or living area floor space.
Make a villa styled garden
Turn your mind overseas, to the villas of Spain or Italy, and terracotta tiles are commonly used outside, to create patio areas. Here at Walls and Floors, we strongly believe in the idea of replacing unsightly paving slabs or wooden decking with tiles. Why? Because firstly, they look far more appealing. Imagine inviting your guests round for a garden party, and having them face a vast expanse of dull concrete slabs. Secondly, wooden decking is darn right dangerous. Once wet, it becomes very slippery – and if you’ve got little ones wandering about, it can prove to be an accident waiting to happen. That’s why anti slip tiles are the perfect choice for garden patio areas.
