Is it possible to do industrial glam w/ saltillo tile floors?
December 12, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I can't afford to replace the floors in my new home, and I want to create an industrial/glam (with a splash of gothic glam) look. Is it possible with Mexican saltillo tile floors? Help. I'm at a loss. Any ideas?

Anything is possible! You might collect your research images and photos to define the style and direction you want to go, then start pulling together color and materials samples. Develop your "wish list" and find a design professional in your area to help guide you along! Good luck with your project!

One idea is to find area rugs that fit your new theme and cover a lot of the saltillo tiles with these area rugs. I can see dark grey low loop industrial style rugs to define the living space and the dining space. The colors of the walls can be in shades of whites and greys with a splash of color that contrasts but works with the tiles.......

On the walls you do a smooth cement based plaster and have a few pieces of furniture made out of reclaimed wood or finished to look like industrial style pieces.

I am buying a house with saltillo tile as well. Going to move to a rustic glam or ecclectic glam plan. Was happy to see that someone else is facing a similar issue ;-)

I think the iron industrial look will work well with the terra cotta tiles.
