Spanish Tile Creates Classic Look for Bath

Spanish Tile Creates Classic Look for Bath

A classic and timeless look for this bathroom in Monterey, CA, was created using hand-painted Spanish Ceramic Tiles in a traditional blue and white palette. A tile rug was created for the shower wall using 6-inch square tiles using our Spanish Caceres tile pattern.

The complex, intricate patterns in the Spanish Caceres pattern works well with the plain white tile and blue trim. The palette is ideal for a bath and complements the terracotta Spanish Paver flooring. The blue trim is an excellent design example of how trim or molding can be used to bring attention and highlight a design element that you want to be noticed, such as the border tile or mural.

Decorative and Field Tile Glaze Differences

Look closely at the white in the Caceres rug and the white surrounding it. Now, look at the blue in the hand-painted decorative tile, then look at the blue used for the trim. Notice the colors aren't a perfect match? Don't they look fantastic together? Rarely will you get the background color of a decorative tile to match exactly to the color of your field tile, and that's OK! The subtle difference helps set them apart as a unique space, while serving as this bathroom's focal point. Remember, not everything has to match to make a statement.

The border tiles were used around the vanity backsplash and as an accent strip around the tub to maintain the same theme and to add interest. Here's a few photos of the vanity and bath installations.

Ceramic Tile Design Tip

Ceramic Spanish tiles have a wide range of uses and benefits. Traditionally, these types of designs were used as wainscoting. Today, they are still used as full wall coverings, but are also great for backsplashes, counter tops, showers, bath accents, swimming pools, fountains, windows, stair risers, and floor accent tiles.

In addition to their wide variety of uses, Spanish tiles provide more versatility and value than any other material. They are color permanent and abrasion resistant. With so many colors, patterns, and tile sizes to choose from, ceramic tile gives you the capability to create any design element you desire. Cadiz 4x4 tiles for sink back splash
