Tile Designs

We have CAD (Computer Aided Design) artists who can create precision designs and custom layouts to visualise your project. Many of the traditional patterns we work with are beautifully ornate, sometimes using thousands of individual tile pieces. Creating a design layout means we can experiment with variations in the colour and pattern for the Victorian path or hallway.  Patterns can make a space feel larger! We can offer some advice based on your particular project. We often work with architects and landscape designers.

Black and white star tile design

There are many traditional patterns to choose from – you can choose adapt designs and colour ranges too. A classic design is the black & white 2 inch square tile pattern. There are many examples of complex repeating patterns with multiple colours, often using encaustic tiles with pattern motifs. Shapes can vary from rectangular, triangle variations, regular and extended hexagons. Original Style offer a subtle range of colours for new Victorian style tiles that are based on original imperial sizes. We source antique plain colour tiles to match existing geometric floors too. For restoration work, we advise using original antique tiles.
