A blast from the past

Victorian tiles have stood the true test of time since they were first popular from the mid 19th Century. They are now timeless as ever and are being used to created bespoke designs throughout the home, particularly in period properties – Victorian and Edwardian terraces and homes.

One of the most popular looks is the black and white chequered tiles. Often used in the entrance of a home, they tick all the boxes by providing a durable and easy to clean surface in the part of the home with the heaviest traffic, as well as making a statement to guests. The bathroom and kitchen are the two rooms that require the most thought as they can often be the biggest project when it comes to renovations. The black and white chequered Victorian tiles can create a timeless look as well as an impact that will far outlive other trends which tend to come and go.

As well as a creating a statement with black and white tiles, Victorian floor tiles can also create a bold colour statement, often presenting the opportunity to be creative when thinking up a unique design. This is not just limited to inside the home – the bright geometric patterns can be used to brighten patios, pathways and doorsteps while still making the same amount of impact as if they were used to cover a large space.

Victorian tiles can create such an impact that they can be paired with simple furnishing and fittings for a timeless look.
