Contemporary Hearth Tiling


Combining the beautiful geometric shapes first evolved from Victorian Tiling Designers and combining them with a contemporary style that creates fireplace hearth tiling will truly make your homes fireplace a stunning feature of any room.

At Were, our contemporary geometric fireplace hearth tiling work has become a firm favourite with our customers.  Fireplaces are of course becoming an increasingly popular home feature once more and whether you are looking to restore and update your existing fireplace or fit a new one, we can provide a tiling service that will deliver the results you are looking for.

From Glasgow to Edinburgh, Aberdeen to Newcastle and across so many homes across Scotland and the North of England, so many period homes that relied on fireplaces as a primary source of home heating have sadly had these once proud fireplaces ripped up, boarded up, painted over or left to fall into a complete state of disrepair due to the more common use of central heating systems.

Yet now, so many homeowners are wanting to restore their fireplaces and add a secondary heating source that will make the winter months that little bit more toasty.

At Were, we can work with you to create a contemporary mosaic design that works with your interior design requirements.  From the initial stages of planning right up to final execution, we work with you to get the tiling results you are looking for.

This simple level of communication along with our attention to detail and friendly attitude has seen us grow from humble beginnings as a local specialist tiler to become one of the leading Geometric tiling specialists in the UK.

If you are thinking of having your fireplace tiled with a geometric design then the best thing to do is to get in touch and have a chat about what you are looking for over the phone.  We can talk you through the process and answer any questions you have about everything from the tiles to use to time frames.

What Our Customers Say

Brian from Newcastle

We were replacing a carpet in our hall and discovered the original Victorian tiling was still there. Andrew came to our home, looked at the tiling and gave us a quote with no hassle. His attention to detail and careful and methodical approach are clear in the end results. We are so delighted with the work that he has done. We never thought about having a tiled hallway but we are more than delighted with the results and it has increased the value of our home considerably.

Andy from Glasgow

We were looking for our Storm Door area and hallway to have a matching contemporary geometric tile design to them. We want a modern take that worked with our period Victorian home. Andrew was one of three tilers we call. He was the only one who took any measurements and really looked at the set up that we wanted. We went Were because they seemed to know what they were talking about and we were impressed with their detailed quote breakdown. It meant we knew exactly what to expect. And the end result - we could not be more happy with the end results. Our hallway looks better than ever.
