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.
Sadly, across the North of England, so many homes that feature Victorian Tiling have been left in a poor state of repair, having suffered from decades of foot traffic, rising damp and of course general wear and tear.
It has meant that so many homes have either tragically ripped up and replaced their original tiled rooms or painted over them. But for those that either have existing Victorian Tiled Floors, Steps, Fireplace Hearths or Bathrooms or those that WANT the stunning mosaic designs made famous from the era, we have a solution. We are Were Tiling and we are a Victorian Tiling Specialist in England. With our roots in Newcastle (where Were Tiling first began), we work across the North of England including large city hubs such as Carlisle, Newcastle & Sunderland and smaller Towns and Villages in the Lake District, providing conservation and contemporary mosaic tiling services. Whether you are wanting your original Victorian Tiling restored to its former glory or you want a Victorian inspired bathroom tiled, we are one of the leading restoration tiling specialists in the country.
When it comes to the restoration of existing tiling that needs repaired, we always aim to reuse as much of the original tiling as possible, trying to keep the authentic look and feel of your Victorian Mosaic tiling. Where tiles have become too badly damaged to undergo repair, we will move heaven and earth to best colour and style match replacement tiles so that your completed wall or floor tiling is as close to perfect and original as possible.
Throughout our site, you will find examples of both restoration and contemporary mosaic tiling work we have done across England.
If you would like to see more specific examples of Victorian tiling work we have done for the likes of outdoor paths, front door vestibules and fireplace hearths then please contact us. We can discuss your tiling requirements and arrange a visit to view, inspect and provide you with a quotation for the tiling work that you want.
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.
