A classic bit of architecture that Glasgow is famous for is our beautiful tenement flats that cover the city. From the red sandstone tenements of Hyndland to the yellow sandstone tenements of the Southside, these classic buildings all contain their own unique flavour with familiar shared elements that make each block different yet so familiar at the same time.
One of these familiar features of the tiled hallways. From the moment you enter through the main front security door, you are greet with tiled walls either side up to eye level. These beautiful tiled features are such a common sight in Glasgow Tenements and each holds slight differences yet follow a similar pattern.
Sadly, while there are many beautiful examples of these tiled hallways across Glasgow, there are also plenty of examples of poorly maintained, damaged, cracked and painted over examples.
However there is a sea of change that is flowing over Glasgow as more and more home owners look to return their tenement block hallways back to their former glory.
However these Victorian styled tiled hallways are not like the tiles you find in modern bathrooms and kitchens. They require a little bit of extra TLC along with patience and skill. It is little wonder then that so many tilers shy away from this type of tiling or worse, say they will do it and simply not turn up after the first day because they realise the demands of this style of tiling.

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.
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.
