Victorian Hearth Tiling

Victorian Hearth Fireplace Tiling Specialist across Scotland & England

Before central heating systems, radiators and combi boilers were common place in homes across Scotland and England, the cold winter nights were kept at bay by roaring and crackling fires.

Living rooms, lounges, bedrooms, hallways and dining rooms once featured proud and stunning Victorian Hearth Fireplaces that were centrepiece visuals in these rooms. And complimenting these original fireplaces were stunning mosaic patterned Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian styled Hearth tiling. Beautiful Victorian tiling designs that matched the period style of the original home and made the hearth a stunning feature of the room. The more grand the room, the more grand the hearth tiling.  Hallways, Living Rooms and Dining Rooms fireplace hearths were obviously more grand affairs due to the nature of the room while more subtle tiled hearths were found in the bedrooms of the home.

With the advent of modern central heating systems, these once proud hearths and fireplace surrounds were neglected. Some were removed completely,others plastered over.  Some tiled fireplaces were painted and those that survived that have endured years of neglect and cracked tiles.

There is now however a growing demand to restore original hearths.  The rising popularity in restoring original Victorian fireplaces and returning these once stunning features back to their former glory is part of a wave of Victorian restoration tiling that is being called upon across Scotland and England. Where once, homeowners looked to remove, destroy and hide these original tiled fireplaces, they are now wanting to  repair and restore these fireplace hearths to their once proud place.

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.
