Specialists in the design and sheeted supply of Victorian floor tiles and contemporary geometric schemes
Victorian mosaic tiles were installed for two main reasons, they were considered to be hygienic and decorative. Some might say that the Victorian aesthetic was over the top but the effect of a decorative path, hall floor and porch panels certainly impressed any guest waiting at the door of a grand London town house.
These geometric mosaic floor tiles are composed of vitrified ceramic tiles in various shapes and sizes and are able to produce an infinite number of attractive designs.
The most common design that was used for exterior locations is the black and white chequerboard using a 2 inch square tile, bordered with a row of diagonally set square tiles with a black border either side. More elaborate and colourful designs were often used for hall floor interiors and featured what are now known as encaustic tiles at the intersections of the lattice element of the field.
Decorative period mosaics comprising smaller tesserae of marble, glass or ceramic were more commonly found at the entrances to commercial premises and would often feature the company name or logo and floral detailing.
