Front Garden Path Tiling

While the number of homes that feature tiled front entrance ways and front pathways that lead from the front garden gate to the main door may be smaller than it once ways, these tiled pathways are a dramatic and powerful design feature that were part of the original style of period Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian Homes across Glasgow, Edinburgh and indeed the rest of Scotland and England.

We are Were Tiling and we are a leading contemporary and mosaic tiling expert. From the restoration of existing tiled pathways to the full layout and fitting of ‘replica’ tiling projects that can help restore these period homes to their original glory.

So many of the homes that once featured tiled pathways have been ripped up, dug up, concreted over or simply left in such a state of disrepair that you would simply not know that you were walking over such beautiful original tiled features.

All of our restoration projects follow a careful and precise system to ensure the very best end result. Where restoration work is required, we will work our hardest to repair and restore existing tiling sections to keep the pathway as authentic and original as possible. Where this is simple not possible, we will do our utmost to colour and style match any replacement tiles to keep that original look.

For new fitted pathways that look to recapture the original pathways style, we work with our customers to design a mosaic tiled pattern that they are happy with before we begin our work. That way, you can rest assured that you know what we are doing, how we are going to do it and what the finished product will look like.

If you would like to know more about our pathway tiling and restoration work and to request examples of similar tiling projects we have worked on in the past, please contact Andrew by calling 07932 716 716 or emailing

You will always find a polite, friendly and experienced voice at the other end of the phone and we will always try to answer your questions as truthfully and clearly as we can.
We look forward to hearing from you.

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.
