Tile Installation

Victorian tiled floors are elegant part of our heritage. They can transform the visual appeal of a garden and the interior floors of a period home. There’s a large range of traditional Victorian & Edwardian designs to choose and can help you select from a range of shapes and colours to create a design to suit your home. There are a several manufacturers that supply quality reproductions of geometric tiles to be used for both internal and external projects. We generally recommend Original StyleVictorian Tiles as the sizes are based on original imperial measurements (inches).  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.

The surface on which the tiles are to be installed often needs to be replaced or strengthened. For an interior project this usually involves securing existing boards, laying and fixing WBP plywood sheets of an appropriate thickness to strengthen the base. 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.
