A timeless choice for good reason, terracotta floor tiles provide instant homeliness and are ideal for introducing a subtle hit of muted colour into an otherwise neutral palette. Taking its name from an Italian word that translates as ‘baked earth’, terracotta varies widely in shade depending on the origin of the clay.For an authentic Spanish tile, opt for our Alicante collection, which comprises handmade terracotta tiles in hexagonal, rectangular or square formats. The brick design is particularly effective when laid in a herringbone pattern, and we love to see the hexagonal style applied as kitchen tiles and utility spaces, too. As terracotta is a naturally porous material, all tiles should be sealed to protect against moisture; their rustic appearance will wear beautifully over time, gaining even more character with age.
