Using decorative tiles for a fireplace creates a dramatic, appealing look. The pattern on each tile blends with the existing backing material (brick, stucco, stone, etc.) to create a seamless design.
Set on the diagonal, or on point, Teruel's effect is quite dramatic here. You can see how the unique pattern makes a visual impact when you compare this installation with another 6"x6" Spanish tile installation using the Teruel pattern. In this case, the hand-painted pattern and colors of Teruel blend in well with the homeowner's fireplace.
