Project Pick: Barcelona San Jose Mural

Barcelona San Jose Quarter Design Tiles on Wall
Barcelona San Jose Quarter Design Tiles Create a Mural

Create an eye-catching mural on any wall with quarter design tile patterns from our Barcelona line. These classic Spanish tile patterns have a Mediterranean flair that can be used in any space. Quarter design tiles require four tiles to make the complete pattern and are often scaled versions of the same pattern found on smaller tiles. Quarter design tiles generally have more negative space and are ideal for creating a patterned mural for larger wall installations. The pattern's negative space ensures a timeless look that isn't too busy. Also, consider using them as wainscoting or in kitchens and baths or showers. Here, the San Jose Quarter 6" x 6" tiles grab your attention on this patio.

Tile Tip:

Create a decorative border using hand painted tiles along the edge of a counter or around a mirror, archway or door. The best tile sizes for borders are 3"x6" or 3"x3" tiles. Some tiles, like our Barcelona border pattern come with a glazed edge so no trim is needed when used for a counter top. You can also use tiles with a glazed edge to create a base trim along the edge of a room.
