Good to know
Our Spanish ceramic tiles are manually glazed and then baked in a large tile oven. The production process is still done the authentic way. This can often be seen in the finishing of the tiles. The top layer is very durable and can therefore be used for various purposes. These Spanish tiles are only suitable as wall tiles.
The Metro tile has a rectangular shape that can be placed in various patterns. For example in herringbone, half-stone or block pattern. These tiles are available in high gloss finishes. Furthermore some Metro tiles have a facet, creating a 3D effect. Can you already imagine them in your kitchen or toilet?
Installing Spanish tiles
Spanish tiles are easy to install and have their own instruction manual. Upon purchase, you will receive a step-by-step plan with instructions and points of attention. We recommend that you read this manual carefully before installing the tiles. Or hire a good tiler who is familiar with this type of tile.
Some tiles may contain small cracks in the surface of the glaze. This is often part of the tile type. If Spanish tiles with small cracks are placed in a wet area such as a shower, the tiles should be treated with an impregnating product like Tile Sealant to prevent moisture absorption in the cracks. This only applies to crackled finished tiles!
These authentic tiles can be used as wall tiles both indoors and outdoors. The following applies for outdoors: place on a paved surface like concrete, under a canopy, protected from water and sun. A significant frost can cause the glaze to crack.
Metro tiles are ideal for wet areas such as a shower, toilet or bathroom, but also in a kitchen or hallway they fit beautifully. Nevertheless these tiles are also excellent to be placed in a hospitality venue or store and are the perfect addition to the preferred look and feel.
Colors, patterns and sizes
Spanish tiles come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Each batch has a small color difference. The tiles from 1 box also often have color differences and irregularities. This is sometimes done on purpose to create a certain atmosphere or has to do with the production process and should be considered normal.
In addition to the standard rectangular and square shapes, other shapes are also very popular such as hexagons, triangles, fish scales (Escamas) and laternas.

Spanish tiles have a hard top layer and are easy to maintain. Mop weekly with an all purpose cleaner. Preferably an acid-free product that is not too greasy. In case of heavy pollution, we recommend using Azule Dirt Remover. This degreaser deals with most dirt on various types of tiles.
