Victorian Tiler in Edinburgh

As the Capital City of Scotland, Edinburgh is home of some of the best examples of Victorian Tiling in the country.

The variation of Geometric and Mosaic Tiling designs used for interior and exterior tiling is just one of the beautiful architectural and design elements that have helped to make Edinburgh such a beautiful city and a great example of period Victorian design along with other examples of beautiful Georgian & Edwardian Tiling.

But like so many aspects of historic buildings in Scotland that are from the Victorian era, the tiling needs to be maintained. Victorian Hallway mosaic tiling, for example, receives daily foot traffic that can wear away the tile surface and fade the tile colour and can break up individual tiles from the substrate.

Stormdoors, such a necessity in the Winter months in Edinburgh, can have their floor tiling cracked and damaged by water penetration.

Whatever the reason, when it comes to restoration tiling work, we are just a phone call away.

We are Were Tiling and we are one of the leading Victorian Restoration Tilers in Scotland. Our work in the conservation restoration of original Victorian Tiling has seen us restore and repair original period mosaic and geometric tiling for Hallways, Fireplaces, Stormdoor Entrance Ways and even front garden pathways.  We are incredibly proud that the work we do not just helps to repair these beautiful original design elements from Victorian, Georgian & Edwardian eras but helps ensure their survival for the decades ahead, preserving a priceless part of UK design history.

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.
