The Italian for ‘baked earth’, terracotta continues to be a staple building material around the world. This hard-wearing clay-based ceramic comes in different shades and shapes and can be used for building projects both indoors and outdoors.
Terracotta tiles are versatile and can be manufactured unglazed, painted, slip-glazed, or glazed which offers protection from scratches, stains and moisture.
Created from clay then oven-fired, the result is a durable building material which brings a cosiness and rustic elegance to your design.
The toughness of terracotta is the biggest reason why designers love terracotta floors. Though terracotta is porous in nature, it is important to seal terracotta tiles using a high-quality sealant. Once sealed, these floors can go on for ages without any damage.
Besides looking good, terracotta is not as cold as ceramics and they are softer to walk on.
