Spanish Inspired Tile Ideas for Your Home

If you love the look of traditional Spanish tiles and want to incorporate a similar vibe to your home, then this blog is for you! Traditional Spanish tiles come in many different colors, patterns, and materials making it a favorite around the world. From vibrant terracotta colors to beautiful patterns, there is never a dull moment when it comes to this old world aesthetic. Here are some Spanish inspired tile ideas that will elevate the look of your home in a snap. 

1. Earthy Tiled Entryway

Spanish tile designs have many distinct styles depending on the originating region. Mosaic patterns are a great way to bring Spanish tile designs to life. This Spanish tile floor uses different tile shapes, such as 3”x3”s, and earthy colors to create a beautiful pattern that is full of charm. Not only does this entryway tile nod to the rustic nature of Spanish tiles, but also the elegance that comes with Spanish tile.

2. Bold Patterned Bathroom 

Stacked tile and bold patterns are a staple in Spanish tile designs making this Spanish tile bathroom idea the perfect fit with a modern twist. Stacked squares are the popular choice when it comes to Spanish inspired tiles, but choosing a different style of Subway tile will modernize the look while staying timeless. A patterned Spanish tile floor pulls the entire look together and adds just the right amount of boldness. If you want to add the final maximalist touch, pair the tiled look with a wallpaper!

3. Colorful Square Backsplash

We showed you a modern twist on a stacked subway tile shower above, so now let’s take a look at a more classic square stacked backsplash that would fit into the Spanish inspired tile category. Spanish tile backsplashes are full of vibrancy and color, and this kitchen backsplash checks both of those boxes! Pairing square tiles with a high variation glaze creates depth and a gorgeous look that everyone will love. I mean, this jewel toned blue-green color is a fan favorite for a reason!

4. Blooming Floral Statement Floor

Floral patterns are huge in the Spanish tile world, whether its hand painted flowers on a single piece of tile or multiple geometric shapes creating a nature inspired pattern. Here at Mercury Mosaics we have a more simplistic take on the floral Spanish tile floor pattern using our Small Hexagons that still makes a big statement. By using a background color, main flower color, and an accent, this floral pattern is a one-of-a-kind beauty. You can dress it up with a matching Subway tile like this bathroom does, or make the floral pattern stand out by itself.

5. Terracotta Inspired Kitchen

When you think of Spanish style, the first thing that might pop into your mind is the iconic terracotta Spanish tile roofs or floors. The next Spanish inspired tile idea is all about the warm, rich energy of terracotta tile. This Spanish tile backsplash kitchen backsplash is a great example of how our 96 Chestnut glaze can look rustic, modern, and timeless all in one. We love how this backsplash is the main focus with wooden floating shelves and earth toned details giving it that rustic charm Spanish style is all about.
