Mosaic Hallway Tiling

While modern homes feature hallways that are better described as passageways from one room to another, the hallways of Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian homes across Scotland and the North of England were an altogether different proposition.

Grand hallways with equally grand staircases and even more grand mosaic tiled floors.

Mosaic hallways are visually stunning design features and a practical choice.  The hallway of course features a lot of foot traffic as residents would walk through it from room to room.

As an introduction to a home, the hallway was an important place to visually decorate and there are few better ways than through mosaic floor tiles.

Beautiful and carefully designed mosaic patterns that can incorporate anything you wish from floral designs, emblems and motifs, spanning the full area of the hall floor.  Hard wearing tiles ideal for the environment that worked so perfectly with the period styling of these homes.

Yet these beautiful mosaic features have been gradually disappearing from homes across the country as homeowners have carpeted, covered or worse – ripped up these mosaic masterpieces.

Thankfully, that trend of destruction has all but come to an end and new homeowners are lifting up the carpets and floor boards and are now looking for these tiled floors to be restored to their original glory.

Mosaic tiling however is no ordinary style of tiling.  It requires clear, precise and skilled processes.  From the delicate lifting of existing tiled pieces to the careful restoration and refitting.  It requires a specialist tiler who is properly trained in the art of conservation tiling restoration and repair.

We are Were and we are one of the UK’s leading restoration tiling experts.

When we work on hallway restoration tiling, we always work to restore the original tiles unless they are simply too far gone in terms of damage.  We want your hall floor tiling to be as original as possible.  And when we have to use new/replacement tiles, we move heaven and earth the style and colour match so that your finished hallway is as close to original as possible.

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.
