The first and most obvious choice for placing handmade Mexican tiles in a kitchen is the wall behind the cooking stove, oven and sink area. It is where all the magic happens but for the same reason, the homeowners should take special care and decorates this wall with tiles. First of all, they will protect the wall from getting wet or damp. Secondly, it is much easier to take off the dirt, fat or rest of the food from a glazed tile rather than a paint. Nothing works better against the spills of the morning coffee made in a rush! Most of our kitchen wall tiles can be installed anywhere around the house, even in the exterior, in case you have an exterior kitchenette or barbecue area. The only limitation for our handmade wall tiles would be those outdoors with possible minus temperatures as the material is not frost-resistant.
