Victorian Tiler in the Lake District

The Lake District is not just a World Heritage Site but it is home to many towns and villages including Windermere, Keswick, Ambleside and Bowness-on-Windermere to name but a few.

And across all of these Towns and Villages, there are countless Victorian period homes filled with stunning mosaic and geometric tiled hallways, entranceways, kitchens, bathrooms and fireplaces.

How does restoration tiling work?

Using a variety of skilled traditional and contemporary tiling restoration methods, we focus on achieving the highest quality tile restoration work for our customers. When undertaking a restoration project, where possible, we use the original floor tiles from your home. When this is simply not possible because the tiles are too badly damaged, we use reproduction geometric tiles sourced from Winckelmans or Craven Dunnills. Our target is always to restore as much of your original period tiling mosaic or geometric floor. While there are differences in what is required in a restoration job between the likes of an exterior storm door tiled floor and a main internal hallway, you can find out more about how tile restoration work is carried out with the link below.

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.
