Spring into a Tranquil Space with Leaf Imprint Tiles

Leaf Imprint Tiles Make a Tranquil Space

 Leaf Imprint Tiles Make a Tranquil Space

Bring the outdoors in with our Leaf Imprint Tiles! These decorative leaf tiles are pressed with real leaves, giving them a fossilized look. Our leaf tiles are hand-colored and offer a subtle way to enhance your kitchen or bathroom with a decorative touch.

Imagine my delight when Tom Auer, owner of landscape design and construction firm, The Ground Crafter, contacted me the first of the year about using some of our Leaf Imprint Ceramic Tile for an upcoming trade show exhibit they would be attending. He explained that the tiles were to be used on a water feature, and that he needed them right away. Unfortunately, we did not have any of the 8"x8" pieces in stock and the smaller 4"x4" format wouldn't work for him.

Avente Tile works closely with its tile artisans and we can often beat the standard delivery time, or find ways to improve delivery with expedited freight or shipping. Of course, the artisan agreed and the tiles arrived in time for the show.

Pressed with real leaves, these decorative hand-painted 8"x8" tiles include a Maple Leaf, Ash Leaf, and Ginkgo Leaf design. Tom chose one of each of the following designs in the 8"x8" format to create a triptych that has perfect balance.

Our Leaf Imprint tiles are popular kitchen backsplash accents; but, I think this is the first time they have been used as part of a trade show set. The Ground Crafter team created the most tranquil, peaceful exhibit space I've seen. Congratulations on a nice job, Tom! I'm glad we could help with the tiles.

If you're looking for further inspiration with hand-painted decorative tiles, then we urge you to visit our Ceramic Tile Design Ideas portfolio for detailed installation photos and concepts.

"Life stands before me like an eternal spring with new and brilliant clothes." -- Carl Friedrich Gauss

Spring arouses the senses with its freshness, renewal, and reawakening of the vivid colors of flora and fauna alike, and of course, the energy exuded like no other season.

It's with this energizing euphoria where many renovation projects are launched. Be it the bathroom that needs updating, floors that need freshening up, a kitchen that needs brightening, or an outdoor water feature you've been yearning to tackle, Avente Tile can help you meet any design goal. Our extensive Design Ideas gallery features a large collection of projects that incorporate our handmade and hand-painted ceramic tile, cement tile, decorative tile, mosaic tile, and so much more.

In honor of Spring and the month of April, we've selected a sampling of ceramic and cement tiles that would fit in perfectly with your current or upcoming projects!
