Tiles Types - Mexican/Terra-Cotta!

These low-density natural clay tiles are fired at a low temperature and are typically made in Mexico or Europe.
  • Handmade or machine-formed
  • Old World, handcrafted look; rustic character
  • Require more maintenance than higher density, less porous tiles
  • Available in a variety of shapes and sizes
  • Can vary in color, texture and appearance
Mexican tile can be used in an outdoor setting, but typically in non-freezing climates. They may not be suitable for rooms with a lot of moisture, like bathrooms, at they have a high absorption and can create slippery surfaces. Terra-Cotta tiles are typically less expensive than other types of tile and can be cost efficient for those on a budget!
