What are Victorian Floor Tiles?

They are small individually coloured vitrified ceramic tiles of various sizes and geometric shapes that are arranged in repeating patterns.
These Victorian tile installations can be found throughout the UK in stately Victorian homes.
At the peak of the Industrial age, the fashion for this type of flooring grew enormously. Factory production on a vast scale created an affordable supply of these tiles to decorate the homes of the middle income group, enthusiastic to display their stylishness.
Victorian floor tiles were used for two main reasons, they were regarded to be decorative and also hygienic.
Artistically, the impact of hallways, paths or glazed ceramic porches served to impress any visitors.
This type of tile is extremely durable due to each tile having the same colour all over. This was accomplished by pressing and firing at high temperatures, colour ceramic dust. These were known as dust pressed tiles.
Many of these Victorian tile installation will be at least 150 years old. This is due to the quality of installation and tile manufacture.

Victorian floor tile patterns

The classic chequerboard black and white pattern was the most commonly used for pathways to more colourful and intricate designs used in hallways. Encaustic tiles were often used within the hallway designs.
Smaller mosaic tiles were often used for the entrances to shops and commercial properties displaying their logo or company name.

What are Edwardian Floor Tiles?

They are geometric ceramic tiles that traditionally came in a variety of sizes, shapes and colours.
The tiles were used to create a limitless array of tile designs to decorate and compliment period homes.
Edwardian floor tiles were a very durable and practical flooring choice which gave the wow factor.
Edwardian designs were usually earthy colours of brown, red, coffee (oatmeal), cognac (buff), grey, black and white. These designs tended to be simpler than the more intricate Victorian patterns, using larger tiles and basic borders.

What are Georgian Floor Tiles?

They are geometric ceramic tiles that traditionally came in a variety of sizes, shapes and colours.
Georgian designs were neo-Classical in appearance mainly using black and white tiles. Large format chequerboards were popular designs and also octagon based patterns, along with Roman style micro mosaic schemes.
