Decorative Tiles

The practicality of tiles is of course widely known, but the added elegance, charm and originality that hand painted decoration brings to a room is often overlooked.  We produce the full range of colours and patterns that we use to decorate our pottery on tiles for the perfectly coordinated interior.

In addition to our scatter tiles, we can produce made-to-measure borders, hand-painted backsplash panels, shower panels and trims; working in conjunction with designers and architects we have provided the tiles for complete kitchen, bathroom and pool projects both here in Portugal and around the world.

Azulejo Murals

Tile murals form a major part of the great ceramic tradition of Portugal and many churches and palaces from the golden age of the 17th and 18th centuries are adorned with this highly esteemed form of decoration. At Porches Pottery we continue this noble tradition, the Porches style with its historic influence lends itself perfectly to this type of work.

As well as the countless commissions to decorate kitchens and bathrooms, tiled panels that enhance the beauty of gardens, terraces and swimming pools, we have also produced many large scale works for hotels and corporations.

How it works:

Every tile panel that we paint is a bespoke creation that we design especially for its space and its owner. So, we thought it would be helpful to describe the process:

  1. Consider a theme you would like for your mural and which colours will work for your space. It is best to think of panels that you have seen on our website or panels you have seen from Porches Pottery out in the world.

  2. Carefully measure the size and shape that you want the panel to be.

  3. Contact us, or better yet visit us, to discuss your panel. We will help to develop the concept.

  4. If you would like to get a sense of how the mural will look when it is finished, we are happy to paint a simple watercolour sketch.

  5. If you want to go forward, we will ask for a 50% deposit before we start.

  6. Then, we will get started painting your panel, which should take around 4 weeks depending on the time of the year.

  7. When everything is ready, you will need an expert tiler or builder to fix your panel for you in its final location.
