Our Sea Tiles Express Your Shining Delight In Earth's Majestic Oceans!


"The happiness of the bee and the dolphin is to exist. For man it is to know that and to wonder at it."


So said Jacques Yves Cousteau, whose exuberant feelings for the world's oceans never dulled throughout his long life. Ours is a water planet, 70% covered in oceans, lakes, rivers and steams. For so many of us, the creatures of the sea evoke feelings of mystery, admiration and curiosity. If thinking of the yawing blue whale, the pretty jellyfish and the sublime little seahorse makes you happy, why not express that good feeling in your home? Our sea tiles are beautifully hand-painted, showcasing the spirit of diverse sea life. They may be grouted into any tiling project, used as wall art or fine coasters. Decorative tiles offer you a chance to personalize different rooms in your home so that they say something about the people who live there, and if you love the sea, our sea tiles will let what delights you shine through!


Dolphin Tile A Dolphin Tile For Every Taste
At Cape Cod Treasure Chest, we keep adding new dolphin tile designs to our inventory because our customers can't get us enough of them. Marine biologists claim it's the smile on the face of the dolphin that has endeared him to so many people as a friendly fellow-being, but we also look with delight on his seemingly-effortless ability to jump, spin and perform ocean acrobatics with such apparent joy. Our hand-painted dolphin tiles capture the bright spirit of the dolphin and make a beautiful decorative addition to backsplashes, showers and other indoor spaces.


Or, perhaps you've got a woodworking shop and love to make beautiful, useful gifts for special people. What little boy or girl wouldn't be delighted with a toy chest embellished with our dolphin tiles or other sea tiles? Check out this fantastic tile toy chest project one of our customers emailed us. And what about a hope chest for a soon-to-be-married daughter who loves dolphins or other sea life? Imagine what handsome gifts our sea tiles can help you create, worthy of becoming family heirlooms!


A very effective use of tiles as decorative as the sea tiles featured on this page is to mix them in with beautifully-glazed solid color tiles. Imagine a counter top done in earth tones - maybe sage green or copper, embellished randomly with focal points of turtle tiles. Tiles are so square and blocky, they can accidentally lead those new at interior design to line them up like rows of dull soldiers. For a more natural, interesting finished look, aim for a more scattered placement of plain tiles vs. picture ones. The end result will be freer and draw the eye here and there, rather than looking like a blank because the pattern is too regimented. Our advice - let our whales and dolphins tiles swim freely about your project and you'll love the effect!


Starfish Tile Twinkle, Twinkle Little Starfish Tile
Few other creatures of the sea lend themselves so naturally to design as do starfish. With their starry rays, they add immediate interesting forms to any design project and the beautiful hand-painted tones of our starfish tile selection bring just the right touch of color where you want it. We've got beautiful seashell tiles here on our Sea Tiles page, too, and with a little imagination, you can start envisioning a lovely spa-like bathroom embellished with these incredibly ornamental images. Our starfish tiles come in a variety of sizes so you will be able to find the exact dimensions you need to bring that twinkle of delight to a shower, tub, back splash or mosaic. Gorgeous in a bright, airy kitchen, too!


For a long time, our culture thought of space as the 'final frontier', but over the past few decades, scientists have taught us that our own seas are virtually unexplored territory. Do you know that to date we have explored less than 5% of the Earth's oceans? Our first trips into the deep have yielded wonders, marvels and oddities that might just as well hail from outer space, so 'alien' are they! Imagine a world of fish flashing neon lights, giant squids and lakes of salt on the ocean floor. For us landlubbers, starfish can be a kind of touchstone to these unseen places in the deeps. Clinging to rocky shores in plain sight, they hint at the beauty of what we might see if we could take the plunge!
