Pack of 25 Assorted Talavera Mexican Handmade 10.5cm Tiles: 'Azul Brillante'
Pack of 25 Assorted Talavera Mexican Handmade 10.5cm Tiles: 'Azul Brillante'
Sale Price: £29.95
  Eligible for free shipping!
Availability: Usually dispatched within 24 hours

Features

  • A pack of 25 assorted 10.5cm square handmade, glazed Talavera tiles made in the colonial city of San Miguel de Allende, decorated using the silk screen process with traditional patterns in shades of blue, turquoise and yellow. Five different tile designs are included in the pack- three patterned and two plain/ block colour. These tiles are comparable in style to Moroccan tiles.
  • Our tiles are generally about 6mm thick.  As they are handmade there is a little variance from tile to tile.
  • Suitable for a variety of situations - kitchen and bathroom back splashes, light duty counter/table tops, stair risers, and hallways. They can be used in "semi wet" situations (eg. splash backs) but not in "fully wet" conditions (eg. inside a shower). They are not suited to use as floor tiles. They are not perfectly suited to outside use as the glaze does crack from freeze/thaw conditions. If you can live with this, they can be used outside. We can't guarantee any heat resistant properties.
  • You can clean the tile in the same way as a normal ceramic wall tile. We suggest non-abrasive environmentally friendly cleaners such as ecover.
  • Tumia Talavera Tiles are handmade and screen printed in Mexico. They have a long tradition dating back to the 16th/17th when Mexico was under colonial rule. The Spanish came to Mexico and shared their knowledge of pottery and tile making and the tradition has been kept alive, using remarkably similar techniques to this day. Talavera de la Reina, a Spanish village not far from Madrid renowned for its ceramic crafts lends its name to the Talavera tiles.


You can let your creative juices flow and create some wonderful designs when putting down your ceramic tiles. By picking matching colours for the tiles and grouting will allow you to come up with beautiful designs. Colour is very important in the bathroom as it sets the whole mood and picking the wrong colour scheme can really impact the decor, so make sure you spend some time thinking about what is right for the whole space. If you would like to achieve a look that is contemporary then go for bright and bold colours with shapes on plain backgrounds. If you want to make you bathroom seem bigger, you cannot go wrong with neutral colours plus beige and white is forever in style and something you can never get tired of.

When looking to buy tiles, it makes very good sense to shop around and not settle or be taken with the first ones you come across. Prices vary a lot between different tiles so you need to have a budget in mind and try to stick to it. You might come across some that are so beautiful you want to buy it straight away but the final cost might be way out of your budget so be prepared to compromise and don't feel bad if you can't get exactly what you want.

Once you've decided on the type of tiles you want and bought them all that is left is to install them. You can get a professional to do it for you or you can do it yourself. Doing it yourself is not that difficult but if you don't have much experience, it might be a good idea to hire someone to do it for you. The advantages of doing it yourself are that you save money and more importantly you feel a sense of pride that you have accomplished a wonderful thing. If on the other hand you don't have the time or the expertise, then look around for someone who knows what they are doing.
