View the Colors & Accents tab to choose from the four natural paver field colors and don't forget to accent your design with the unique glazed decorative accent tiles.

Create a harmonious field blend

The Batchelder Tile pavers are made of an unglazed, high-fired stoneware body. Natural clay pigments give each tile a unique quality and color, producing a surface rich in character, incomparable to a conventional quarry tile floor. The field palette consists of 4 color groups: red, brown, grey and natural. Considerable range can be expected within each color group, and when combined the result is a natural blend of color and tone.
