Victorian Tiler in Carlisle

Carlisle is one of the most well known historic cities in the North of England and is filled with historically significant architecture, 12th Century Cathedral and some of the best examples of Victorian tiling seen in the country.

Situated just ten miles from the border with Scotland, Carlisle lies within the Northern English county of Cumbria is a frequently visited destination for our Specialist Victorian Tilers for both the restoration of existing mosaic and geometric floor tiling and for the fitting of contemporary tiling that helps restore the interior design styles of the many period homes in the city.

At Were Tiling, we are Victorian Tiling Specialists. From stunning Geometric Hallway tiling to elegant mosaic entranceways. These period tiling designs are one of the great examples of what made homes from this era so special. And we are one of the leading restoration tiling companies that can handle the required restoration of these historically significant floor and wall designs.

The Victorian era created some of the most defining architectural and interior design features that England has ever seen. Lasting markers of an era that spanned Queen Victoria’s rein from 1837 to 1901.
And one of the most defining features of the era was the Victorian Tiling. Beautiful mosaic pattern that were used for Front Storm Door Entrance ways, Vestibules, Hallways, Fireplaces, Bathrooms and more.

Victorian Tiling was a design feature that became a statement and something for homeowners to ‘show off’ with.

But like the period Victorian Sandstone homes that these tiling features sat in, they need maintenance, care and repair work done to keep them at their best.

Time is a cruel mistress

Like so much of a period home, wall and floor tiling needs to be maintained. Victorian Tiles were built to an incredibly high quality but over one hundred years of wear and tear including foot traffic, rising damp, accidental impact drops and simply the age of the substrate supporting the tiles can mean that Victorian tiling can begin to crack, fall apart and fade with time. This is when you need to call in a Victorian Tile Restoration Expert.

We are Were and we are one of the leading Victorian Tile Restoration Specialists in North England. We work on all Conservation Tiling projects covering Victorian, Edwardian & Georgian Geometric and Mosaic tiling design.

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.
