Frequently Asked Questions

What are hand-painted tiles? 

Hand-painted tiles are unique pieces of art created by skilled artisans. At Akka Home each tile is meticulously painted by hand, making every piece distinct. These tiles often feature intricate designs and soft colours, and can include anything from floral patterns to bespoke motifs. They bring a touch of individuality and character to any space, transforming walls and floors into canvases that tell a story.

How are hand-painted tiles made? 

The creation of hand-painted tiles involves several steps. After the earthenware clay tiles are bisque fired, our artists paint the designs using glaze. Following the painting process, the tiles are fired in a kiln, which sets the glaze and ensures the colours are sealed and vibrant. This process, particularly when using the Majolica technique, allows the colours to merge with the glaze, enhancing the intensity and fluidity of the artwork. This also ensures that our ceramic tiles are heat, scratch and water resistant.

How can I use hand-painted tiles in my home?

Hand-painted tiles can be used in various ways to add beauty and character to your home. They are perfect for creating stunning backsplashes in kitchens and bathrooms, adding a decorative touch to fireplaces, or making a statement with a feature wall. You can also use them as accent pieces within a floor design or to create unique, personalised coasters and tabletops. The versatility of hand-painted tiles means they can complement any interior style, from traditional to contemporary.

How can I care for my hand-painted tiles?

Caring for hand-painted tiles is straightforward. For routine cleaning, use a soft, damp cloth or sponge with mild detergent or vinegar with water. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or scrubbers, as these can damage the surface of the tiles. For tiles in high-moisture areas, such as bathrooms, ensure they are installed properly with grout to prevent water damage. Regularly check for any cracks or chips and address them promptly to maintain the integrity and beauty of your tiles.
