A versatile and urban decoration

The option that we are presenting today is an original combination of metro style tiles and hydraulic tiles. They are so different that they work together perfectly and add a classic touch that varies between vintage and industrial.

These are two types of coating tiles that have never gone done in history, rather they have continued to develop to the point that they are now cutting-edge and really in fashion.

Metro tiles take their name from the fact that they were used in the first metro stations built in large cities such as London and New York. They have a simple design, are resistant and easy to clean, which makes them the best candidate for maintaining a clean look that lasts for a long time.

Although the colour white was originally chosen in order to boost brightness, which was so lacking, in metro stations, now, the combination of black and white allows a space to really express itself and adds character.

For those that choose white but do not want to fall prey to the “Total White” effect, another of the developments of this décor is to highlight the seams in black in order to create a visual contrast and break up the predominantly white space, creating a grille-like effect. It can also be done the other way round, leaving the seams white, and using black tiles, although this is a more daring option.

Azteca, with its desire to always keep up-to-date with the latest trends, has unveiled the Gallery and Settecento series.

Gallery is presented in a bevelled 7’5×38 format and with an innovative geometric relief that manages to make spaces much more versatile, attractive and bright. The interplay between lights and shadows and endless combinations provide any room with a great dynamism and a strong personality.

Settecento, recreates the hydraulic tiles from the end of the 19th century. These decorative tiles are presented in a 60×60 format. In addition to their resistance, these tiles are characterised by their versatility, range of designs and natural colours, making them suitable for both indoor and outdoor spaces. Also, Azteca has gone one step further and introduced a lappato finish.


This composition fits in perfectly with the look of the most modern commercial premises, providing an urban and retro look that really attracts clients nowadays.

The simple fact is that standing out is a crucial aspect of all businesses!
