Mexican tiles are best for adding Southern character to a patio or back-yard garden. You can use handmade Mexican tiles for BBQ counters, tabletops, wall backsplash and floor accents. When installing tiles from Mexico outdoors you need to consider the temperatures during winter months. In warm climate such as Houston, Texas use of Mexican tiles on patios is common and there is no problem at all with decorating with them outside the houses. It is suggested that the area where they are installed is covered with the roof but water itself is not going to cause any problems. Only freezing moisture on the talavera surface may cause problems. Since the region has warm temperatures all around the year you can buy Mexican tiles for Houston homes creating beautiful hacienda ambient anywhere.
