We use "Quickshine" to clean the floors and seems to work really well in keeping the floors looking good....

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.

This type of tile is specifically authentic Saltillo tile - it's a type of terra cotta floor tile. As the largest manufacturer and wholesaler of Saltillo tile, you can check out lots of options on our website. Our customers photos are posted online so it's fully of design ideas as well!

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...

Rustico Tile and Stone

Saltillo tile (unsealed) is really pastel in color. Once a color-enhancing sealer is applied, the end result is something like this. Alternatively, unsealed saltillo can also be stained to a specific color shade of your choice. That can help alleviate the color range naturally found in the clay - though... most people like saltillo tile for that color variation. :)

Some examples of sealed tiles can be found here if you need some ideas!

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.

Is this tile slippery when your feet are wet? Bare feet or wet shoes - Are all the Mexican type tiles slippery when walking with wet feet?

These are tiles are in my home and we haven't had any issues with them being slippery...I think would be like most tiles with wet feet...but not particularly slippery...They are shiny in the picture b/c just cleaned the floor:))

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.
