New Installation

Feature Image

Geometric tiled floors are part of our heritage; they can transform the visual appeal of a period property, from the path entrance to the tiled interior floors. There is an enormous range of traditional Victorian & Edwardian designs to choose from, or you can also select from a range of shapes and colours to create a contemporary design. There are a number of manufacturers that supply quality reproductions of geometric tiles that can be used for both internal and external projects. London Victorian can fit any pattern requested by the client. We also offer a consultation and design service to ensure you are entirely satisfied with the geometric pattern, border and colour arrangement before installation begins.

Exterior work will often require a cement sub-base strengthened with steel reinforcing mesh, and leveled with a screed. During installation tiles are carefully laid in a precise manner, using traditional techniques. We pride ourselves on ensuring our clients are fully satisfied with the finished project.

Braemar Garden Path Design

Victorian Tiled Front Path in Black and White - Braemar mosaic pattern

The first phase involved removing the existing surface, excavating a deeper trench and then creating a reinforced concrete base with a level screed on which to install the geometric tiles. The base structure of the steps to the door was also constructed. Original barley twist path edging was fitted, and York stones laid to run to the left of the …
