Thank you very much! These are spanish tiles and they sell them at most tile stores---they are very reasonable and easy to clean. Mine are sealed so have some sheen to them.

Did you stain these tiles? - I notice they are more uniform in color than traditional Satillo tiles in their natural pastel color tones. Did you stain them? Did you enhance them before sealing? We are looking to lay down Satillo too but want them darker & uniform like yours. Thanks!

This tiles we already laid down when we purchased it.....They have some variance in color and are sealed...I keep them really shiny and clean:)) Good luck with your project! They are great bc they hide dirt very well and are durable...

Really appreciated your sharing, I also have a house with these type of tiles. I will try to play around with the color of the wall. Hopefully will have great results like yours.

This room is beautiful, warm and inviting. You did a great job pulling it all together. Do think saltillo tiles look best with yellows and warm white painted walls? I am agonizing over color selection for our beach house with saltillo tiles in great room/kitchen. Would SW sea salt #6204 look awful? Should I stay away from colors on the opposite side of the color wheel?

Thank you so much you are very kind:)) I tend to stay with a little warmer shades for these tiles...I love Sea Salt and it's one of my favorites but not sure with this tile...Why don't you get a sample and paint a big poster board and look at in different lighting and see what you think?....If doesn't look great would recommend a light but warmer color.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kelly Porter added this to How to Create a Mood With Tile
Spanish. Terra cotta floor tiles give a room an unmistakable Spanish feel. An added bonus: If you live in a warm climate, these tiles are famous for helping to keep homes cool.
3. Install ceiling fans. "Ceiling fans can make a room feel much cooler, since they circulate the air. And considering they can cost as low as $100, they're often an investment that is not only affordable but easy," says general contractor LuAnn Fabian.
