Terracotta Effect Bathroom Tiles
Terracotta Effect Bathroom Tiles
For those looking to get a lustful and traditional finish in their bathrooms, we can not recommend the use of terracotta effect bathroom tiles enough! The stunning Mediterranean hues and blemishes these tiles offer will take your right back to your favourite holiday!
If you are wondering why we are discussing terracotta in an effect tile it is because of the advancements in tile technology. For many years terracotta was a popular choice in the bathroom and kitchen alike, it offered beautiful colourings and was produced in the UK so was considerably cheap.
The issue that terracotta had was its high maintenance! Terracotta is one of the hardest materials to maintain, before even laying the tiles each tile will need up to 6 coats of sealer to protect them from becoming stained due to the installation process, in addition after being laid they need to be sealed again to prevent damage from the grout. After grouting they then need sealing again and then to ensure they always stay waterproof they need sealing every 1 -2 years. This is on top of having to use a special PH neutral cleaner! Sound like a lot of work? It is and that is from a tiles perspective!
Which is why we introduce this stunning collection of terracotta effect bathroom tiles! Instead of using terracotta this range of bathroom tiles is made from using materials such as porcelain and ceramic, much tougher materials and completely non-porous so you can forget about all the maintenance. To achieve the colour and variations, this is done by taking digital images of terracotta dn printing these in HD on the ceramic or porcelain therefore giving you a beautiful terracotta effect bathroom tile!
Historical and Modern Use of Terracotta Effect Bathroom Tiles
In ancient times, the terracotta stone was used everywhere in the house and even outside of the home; it made space appear more inviting and calmer. It was also used in 15th-century houses, primarily in kitchens and various other areas. However, due to its costly maintenance, it was quickly overlooked. It was hard to keep clean and was easily scratched and damaged therefore the industry introduced more plain ceramic tiles!
Now terracotta effect bathrooms are introduced so are different designs, from hexagon tiles to interlocking puzzle tiles, the variations are endless but for us you can not beat the classic look! With all of our porcelain made terracotta effect bathroom tiles these can be used both inside and outside of the home thanks to their fros protection properties, giving you peace of mind and room to experiment with these beaut's!
