12 / 15 / 2021

   What’s more important than the interior of your home? The interior of your business! Making your space memorable keeps customers coming back for more. When you’re selling merchandise, you’re really selling the story behind the merchandise. This means that your storefront should reflect your passion for your product. There’s a reason you opened your business in the first place, so the space where you run it should make you excited every day. Employees and customers will appreciate a thoughtful work environment. That's why you should decorate your commercial space with materials you are enthusiastic about. Zellige tiles are an excellent option for adorning commercial spaces because of their versatility and unique history. Whether your space is modern, traditional, or somewhere in between, Zellige Tile In Commercial Space can add that pop of personality than will set your business apart from the rest.   

A Rainbow of Possibilities

  We are obsessed with zellige tiles for their naturally glossy finish and their extensive range of vivid colors. If you want to brighten up a darker space, choose a warm Desert Bloom peach, or a bright Arcadia blue. If classy and neutral is what you’re after, a cool greyish Zinc or a textured Brownstone might be more up your alley. If you’re not quite sure what shade you prefer, a helpful trick is to stop and ask yourself, “What am I trying to say with my interior?” and the creative ideas will follow. A commercial space can be tricky, because it’s about so much more than taste. It’s about the message you’re trying to convey. If your business is a modern millennial paradise, maybe you want to incorporate something funky like a hexagon-shaped tile. If you’re all about personal touch, try crafting a one-of-a-kind mosaic out of small 2x2s. The options are endless, and zellige tiles will only make your interior more intriguing.   

From Walls to Water Features

  Floors aren’t the only place to put tile. In fact, for centuries zellige tiles have been used for decorating fountains and framing frescos. If you need to add some pizazz to a bar, cover the front in shiny zellige. If your goal is to give your patrons something to talk about, cover an entire accent wall in your favorite tiles. Not only are the tiles super hardy, but they’re also waterproof when sealed correctly. This means you can use them in everything from bathroom floors to full-blown spas. Almost any commercial space can incorporate the handmade Moroccan masterpieces.   

Centuries of Clay

  Okay, we’ve spent enough time drooling over their stunning appearance. The most magical part about zellige tiles is undoubtedly the way they’re made. In contrast to mass-produced, cookie-cutter materials you might find at your local hardware store, zellige tiles are molded by master craftsmen known as Maâlems. The art of making zellige is highly respected in Morocco, and it’s a skill that has been passed down for generations. The clay used in their creation is found only in a specific area of Morocco known as the Fez region. Fired in a pit fueled by olive pits, there really is no other material with as much character as zellige. When you install zellige in a commercial space, not only does it produce an eye-catching design, but it gives you an automatic conversation piece.
