Want to elevate the look of your entertaining area? Look no further than warm toned tile! Terracotta tile not only comes in a beautiful burnt orange, but can have brown and paler tones such as peach. This whiskey bar uses a mix of different warm glaze colors and small tile pieces to elevate the design and add variation. This is a great example of how colors and tile shapes can make a smaller space look grand!

3. Earthy Kitchen

Next on our terracotta tile journey is a more traditional look. Subway tile is a great choice for those who want a classic look to their space. This tile shape is so versatile, making it easy to add unique modern twists. Although this kitchen backsplash is still classy, the stacked placement of the tile brings in a modern feel which pairs well with the floating shelves. The terracotta color adds an earthy feel which is brought out by the vase of flowers. Warm toned tiles are ideal for adding plants and greenery!
