If you find traditional flat tiles for your backsplash too boring, Ann Sacks has something that will totally charm you. Her sculptural tiles are made using sgraffito – an Italian Old World technique which means “to scratch”. The sgraffito technique consists of laying the clay over a surface to get the bumpy look and then, while still wet, the clay is carved in the desired relief. The results are stunning, as you will see below. The green Nautilus design is perfect if you’re looking to add to your bathroom the artistic feel, while the red Dahlia tiles, when put in order, form a beautiful eye-catching floral mural.

Rako floral tiles Botanica

There is no need for plain white bathroom walls ever again with the decorative Botanica tiles from Rako! Like the contemporary concept of wallpapering, here you can apply a row of printed tiles here and there to add colour and interest, rather than choosing an all over pattern. The Botanica tiles are unarguably beautiful; a spirited floral print dominates the collection of tile products. The tiles have a lighthearted, retro appeal, but with their silver glints and subtle colour scheme they are something altogether more modern. There is also a classic striped tile to complement the look by carrying it forward in an unobtrusive manner. Contact Rako to learn more about their complete sets of wall and floor tiles.
