Mexican ceramic tiles are handmade and hand painted with over three hundred designs. They can be decorated in folk art, Spanish, colonial hacienda and Arabic style. Even though most of ceramic tiles are produced as 4×4 inches, you can buy in Mexico other sizes as well. Often for stair risers larger 6×6 tiles are used. Smaller 2×2 are useful for inserts and general decor. You can use them on tabletops, mirror frames and for example coasters. Since Mexican ceramic tiles are glazed they are water resistant suitable to install in wet areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, swimming pools or saunas.
