Our tile portfolio offers a wide range of designs, textures, finishes, colours and formats.

This year we’ve focused on shining a light on timeless tiles from some of our most loved collections with enduring style and quality.   Surface The Surface trend is all about our tiles that we’ve sourced from around the world, highlighting in particular our carefully curated range of contemporary tiles. Think clean lines, mixed formats and unusual surfaces, this trend is great for those looking to achieve a modern yet glamourous finish. Incorporating texture into a scheme is a great way to add detail and interest, without committing to bold colours or patterns. This trend focuses on an eclectic mix of tiles, showcasing some of our most interesting formats and textured products that have been meticulously sourced by our expert teams. Creating a luxe look in your home can be easily achieved by pairing together certain design elements. ‘This trend seeks to bring deep tones, contrasting surface finishes and subtle textural detail together to create an elegant feel with rustic touches. We’ve styled black marble hexagons with distressed pink brick tiles, green and gold accents and natural textures to create a look embodying the Surface trend.’ Becca Keenan, New Products Designer.   Colour Glossy jewel-tones, rich reflections and impact, the Colour trend is all about our glazed tiles. Bolder colours have been slowly making their way to the forefront of design, with vivid ceramics becoming a popular choice for those looking to inject some colour into kitchens, bathrooms, hallways and throughout the home. When it comes to embracing the Colour trend with tiles, the options from our ranges are almost endless. Illustrating a radiant feel, this trend features a range of artisanal tiles that are glazed in our factory. Take a look at bright pink and blue wall tiles from our Winchester collection, the deep tones of green and red from the Artworks range, bold designs from both Odyssey and Living ranges and even heritage shades from our geometric Victorian Floor Tile collection.

Our hand-mixed glazes have been carefully developed over the decades, with precise and perfected recipes.

These vibrant wall tiles feature our signature glossy glaze, creating a luxurious yet lively feel. For a creative style statement choose a complementary yet detailed wallpaper, or a contrasting colour for the floor or even the ceiling. The combination of playful prints and bright colours will help you to achieve a fresh, unique finish in kitchens, bathrooms or hallways.’ Becca Keenan, New Products Designer.   Craft The Craft trend embraces our unique and celebrated manufacturing processes, featuring hand-crafted tiles from our most cherished collections.

  4. Four tips for choosing the right colour tiles for your home

    Four tips for choosing the right colour tiles for your home Choosing a colour scheme for your kitchen, bathroom, or any room in your home can be a difficult decision, especially with a myriad of colours available! It’s worth doing your research to find a colour scheme that you feel comfortable with (and can live with!) as well as one suited to the style of your home. We’ve put together four tips to help make the process less daunting and help you select the best tiles for your space…   1. Research Tiles are often an afterthought when it comes to home makeovers, but they have the power to completely transform a room. After researching online, visiting your local dealer is a good place to start; here you can browse inspiring displays and get advice from friendly and knowledgeable staff, but most importantly get samples to test in your own home. When selecting a colour there are three basic schemes to choose from, tonal, harmonious and complementary. A tonal scheme is the use of one colour but in varying hues, for some this may be too plain but adding in texture is a great way to alleviate the potential blandness of a single colour. For example if you have opted for white neutral cabinets and décor, a white textured tile like Fusuma adds immediate detail and interest. A harmonious scheme is balanced and easy on the eye, using colours that are next to each other on the colour wheel. Complementary colours are opposite each other on the colour wheel, for example pink and green. This type of colour scheme is great if you are looking for something more striking.   2. Style of property Considering the style of your home is also important when selecting colour. If you have a modern new build it may not suit traditional dark red and buff Victorian Floor Tiles, but if you love the look, a neutral colourway like grey and white as pictured below, is better suited to a new build. Likewise with period properties, applying brightly coloured jewel toned mosaics to the bathroom could look out of place, but if you want to embrace a daring colour you can still do so with the Artworks collection, try a bold Baroque Blue for depth and atmosphere.   3. Considering your space The size of your room can also guide your colour choice, if you are updating a smaller room and want to make the most of the space, it’s common sense to opt for lighter shades. This needn’t mean white, grey or beige, using pastel shades is a nod to introducing some colour without the commitment of a bold shade. Just look at the Winchester Tile Company for plenty of pastel hues, perfect for adding a drop of colour to your interior. It’s also important to see how tiles look in different lights, so we recommend getting samples from your local dealer and looking at them in your space at different times of the day to see how they are affected by light.   4. Finishing Touches It can be tempting to match all your accessories to your colour scheme, but this can look overwhelming, if you already have a statement colour in your kitchen or bathroom try using a complementary shade for items like towels and décor. For the ultimate finishing touch, border tiles can really add that coveted wow factor; use them to frame, highlight and finish an area to perfection, or even to add a pop of colour Read more...
  5. How to add character to your home with tiles

    How to add character to your home with tiles Adding character to your home can be a challenging task - but whether you’re living in a period property or modern new-build there are many ways you can add character to your home with tiles.   You might already have a certain look or style that you’re trying to recreate but if not, don’t worry - taking some time to research and think about how best to work with your space will reward you for years to come. A good place to start is considering the style of your property. If you have a Victorian property with period features you might be leaning towards a more traditional style, but, if this isn’t your taste, you can still incorporate modern fixtures, fittings and accessories to create a dynamic style that suits you and your properties original architecture.   Period Properties A period property is characterised by a distinctive architectural style- think Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian. Houses built in these era’s naturally come with a range of inherent characteristics, from bay windows and iron railings to stained glass windows and doors. Restoring these features is a good way to add character, especially with tiles. Our Artworks collection offers an array of rich classic colours, detailed mouldings and decorated options perfect for those looking to update their walls whilst considering a properties’ historic style. They can be used in porches, hallways, kitchens and bathrooms to create a timeless look for years to come.   For a more farmhouse style, there’s our Winchester collection; home to a selection glossy glazed wall tiles in muted tones and rustic finishes, as well as coordinating mouldings to frame areas to perfection.  Team tiles from our Cosmopolitan range with natural wood tones, an authentic AGA-style cooker and shaker cabinets to create a country kitchen filled with character.     If you’re looking to create a more contemporary feel then explore the ‘New Heritage’ trend which is all about adding a new twist to an old classic. Our Victorian Floor tiles used in shades of grey are perfect for this.     Modern Properties New builds won’t have the inherent features of a period property but they are a wonderfully blank canvas that you can completely make your own, rather than having to design around existing quirks like big ornate fireplaces that may not be your style. A great place to start is deciding on a colour scheme and palette in order to create an interior that flows seamlessly. You may choose neutral tones and natural finishes or opt for bolder statement pieces with pops of colour. Creating a mood board of paint samples, tile options, fabric swatches and furniture will help you to see how your finished look will come together.   For bathrooms you can’t go wrong with a classic brick or subway tiles, bring in texture with our Winchester Elements range whilst maintaining and urban yet chic feel. Creating a synergy of old and new is also a great way to add charm to a space, try incorporating some vintage furniture pieces; we love this modern rustic setting with our Living tiles.   Most importantly when adding character to your home make sure to be true to your own tastes and style in order to create something truly unique and distinct, with whichever tiles you choose!  Read more...
  6. Finishing touches - how to use mouldings, tile trims and grouts

    Finishing touches - how to use mouldings, tile trims and grouts Mouldings, tile trims, grouts and all the other finishing touches associated with tiling can often be overlooked or a last minute thought, however, these accessories can complete a tiling project to perfection. Many of our tile collections are available with coordinating mouldings and border tiles that be used to frame, highlight and finish tiled spaces seamlessly.   Wall tiles and mouldings Our Winchester collection is hand-crafted by skilled artisans in our Devon factory. Exuding rustic charm and offering an authentic appeal, tiles and moudlings from the Winchester collection are perfect for those looking to add character to a space. The Winchester collection offers a whole host of glazed wall tiles in a variety of colours, many of which have a coordinating moulding.    Including a moulding in your scheme is a great way to lift simple décor and add interest. If you prefer the look of plain, glossy metro tiles - adding a decorative border or skirting in the same colour will provide a detailed twist:     There are four ranges within the Winchester collection; Elements, rustic brick tiles in muted hues and bolder shades; Residence, glossy glazes in a number of formats; Artisan, with mellow tones inspired by nature; and Classic, traditional formats in a wide range of colours and mouldings as well as a selection of whimsical designs. It’s not just our Winchester collection that hosts an array of mouldings, our Artworks collection also features a number of intricate border and skirting designs. Perfect for adding a decorative edge to simple field and brick tiles, our Artworks collection includes many classic colour options as well as contemporary shades of grey, allowing you to explore both traditional as well as modern tile and moulding combinations. Choose from simple a Omega pencil style, timeless Egg and Dart and detailed Hogarth. These mouldings are great in areas where tiles fill half a wall or come to dado height as they help to create a stylish, sophisticated finish.     Trims and Grout Whilst selecting tiles can be an exciting process, choosing a grout colour may seem less important in comparison – but with a bit of careful consideration, choosing the right grout colour can really complete a project. The most popular options when it comes to grout are shades of grey, limestone and jasmine, depending on the colour of your chosen tiles. Choosing a darker colour grout can reduce the appearance of stains and general wear and tear but also it creates a stylish contrasting feature against lighter coloured tiles – imagine white metro wall tiles teamed with grey grout. Trims can be used around windows to hide any tile edges, as a border around tiles where they don’t fill an entire wall and even in smaller spaces, like alcoves or recesses. Choose from a variety of finishes, shades and thickness, all of which will help you create a sleek and streamlined finish to your tile project.   With the amount of aspects to consider in a tiling project, we appreciate this process can be slightly overwhelming. However, this experience can remain fun and exciting by having a tile specialist walk you through your tile design journey and provide you with expert guidance. We work with over 2,000 retailers across the world so that you can choose your perfect Original Style tiles in confidence.  Read more...
  7. The appeal of sheer simplicity in interior design and tiling schemes

    The appeal of sheer simplicity in interior design and tiling schemes We are pleased to introduce American interior designer, Kate Roos, who has kindly agreed to share her thoughts on current design trends and to talk us through her thought process when it comes to choosing tiles for her clients’ homes. Kate Roos is a Minneapolis - based kitchen and bath designer focused specifically on cabinetry design for the whole house, space planning and material and product selection. She has used Winchester tiles in one of her recent stunning projects and we used the opportunity to speak to her about aesthetics, practicality and achieving balance between the two. The beautiful photos illustrating Kate’s work were taken by talented commercial & residential photographer, Andrea Rugg. Kate sourced her clients’ tiles at Rubble Tile.All images belong to Andrea Rugg and are only authorized for use on this blog.   Q. What kind of customers do you usually get and what kind of services are they primarily looking for? A.The majority of my clients are looking to completely re-imagine their kitchens or bathrooms and I help guide them through the process. I need to understand what the client hopes to achieve with the remodel. How do they want the room to feel: warm and inviting, modern or traditional? How they would like the space to function: who does the cooking, cleanup, how many family members are in the space at any given time? Space planning and cabinetry design define the layout, look and function of the space. Backsplash tile, countertop, lighting and hardware selections bring character to the room. I also love staying involved during construction to manage design details and witness the new space come to life! Q. What is your biggest challenge when it comes to home décor? A. Challenges arise regularly when designing kitchens and bathrooms. Often the space is limited due to poorly placed ductwork or lack of expansion opportunities. Creative solutions are paramount to attaining the kind of function my clients want. Planning the space is exciting - I explore the limitations and opportunities and I push myself to find the best outcome.The client's budget also drives my creativity. Kitchen remodels can add up quickly, so I am cautious about making dramatic choices like moving plumbing, taking out walls, or moving windows and doors. Understanding where clients should splurge and where they should be prudent is a large part of the design process.Q. How important are kitchens and bathrooms when it comes to decorating a house? A. Without a doubt kitchens and bathrooms are the most costly remodels and the most rewarding. People spend a lot of time in these spaces and it’s very important not to rush through the design process. The finishes in these spaces are fixed, meaning they are locked into the space making them difficult and costly to replace. How you feel and interact in the space is a high priority. Bathrooms should be both relaxing and functional with good lighting and easy-to-clean surfaces. Kitchens should allow for effortless cooking and entertaining with high quality finishes and proper storage. Taking time to work through the details before the remodel ensures that the kitchen or bath will work for you and exceed your expectations. Q. Would you say that American customers place special value in products that are designed and made in England? A. Products that are made in England add a special quality to any American design, providing a sense of history and tradition. Often these products are made using centuries old techniques, fine craftsmanship, and offer an understated elegance. Products like lighting, tile, and hardware can be that special element that pulls the room together.Q. When choosing tiles for your customers, what exactly are you looking for? A. Tile can be an overwhelming item to choose. I usually start with the countertop, because there are fewer options than there are with tile. Once the counter is selected we begin thinking about tile; the color, shape, material. Tiles should enhance the space and add some contrast to other elements in the room, be it with texture or hue. Tile is an opportunity to have fun and take some risks if you are so inclined. If the counter is polished, a matte or rustic finish of the tile can temper the luster; if the countertop is honed, shiny tile can be a lovely way to bounce light through the space. For traditional designs a subway tile is perfect. I love unexpected sizes like 2”x8”, 3”x12” or 5”x5” installed in a ½” or 1/3” offset brick pattern. Selecting a handmade tile with variation in shape and glaze can add interest and shimmer as well. Q. What advice would you give to people looking to create fabulous tiled focal points in their homes? A. When it comes to a kitchen or bath focal point, take cues from other elements in the space. If the space already has several bold elements, I would create a framed tone-on-tone focal point over the range. Finding a tile line like Winchester Tile Company that offers various formats, beautiful glazing, decorative tiles and different finishes makes implementing tonal choices easy. Choose a color that you love, choose a field tile, a pencil or border tile to be used for the frame and have a play with tiling patterns for the interior. This approach adds visual interest and textural variation without adding a new color to the space. There are endless ways to add an interesting focal point with tile, so experiment and see what you like! Q. Has there been a shift in tile format preferences in the American market? A. In Minnesota, where I live, the traditional subway tile is still quite desirable. New tile options with bold color and texture are abundant, but when it comes to final decisions, a simple subway tile format is tried and true and always timeless. You can't go wrong. I try to transition away from the classic running bond 3”x6” when possible with different sizes (2”x8”, 3”x12”, etc.) and different installation options like 1/3” offset or stacked: a mix between modern and classic! Q. Why did you choose tiles from The Winchester Tile Company? What was it about the product that you found appealing and where did you source the tiles from? A. I have always loved the tile offerings from Winchester Tile Company, and when you find something you love, you find ways to use it! The range of colors and glazes are endless, and the handmade look of the tile is exceptional. When we selected tile for the St. Anthony Falls Kitchen, my clients wanted something traditional yet unexpected and the offset 5”x5” tiles were perfect. The tiles sparkle when the sun streams through the windows making the space feel distinctive.Q. How did you hear about The Winchester Tile Company? A. I discovered The Winchester Tile Company through my local supplier, Rubble Tile in Minnesota, and I have been finding ways to use it ever since. They are always knowledgeable and so helpful in steering me in the right direction. I was trying to find a white subway tile in just the right shade of off-white and The Winchester Tile Company had the perfect color. They are now one of my go-to tile manufactures. I can always find interesting color, sizes, textures and sheens. Photo's by commercial & residential photographer, Andrea Rugg Read more...
  8. 5 Kitchen style ideas using tiles

    5 Kitchen style ideas using tiles The kitchen is the heart of the home and often a difficult project to design whilst prioritising practicality. A great deal of thought goes into the look and feel of cabinetry, lighting, paint colours, furniture, fixtures and fittings, but does as much consideration go into selecting tiles? Many homeowners opt for paint on the walls to avoid having to install tiles, but this can be a false economy. Both wall and floor tiles provide a clean and hygienic surface that won’t be damaged by cooking splashes or constant wiping and can really enhance the finished look of the space.   Natural and neutral It’s no surprise that many of us opt for natural and neutral colour schemes; they’re simply beautiful and add a cosy feeling, thanks to the warm undertones of browns, creams and taupes found in a natural colour palette. These shades reflect the warm rustic shades of the earth and can be enlivened with dark leafy greens or coppers and golds for a touch of glamour. If this is the style you’re looking to create, it’s worth considering wood-effect floor tiles. Natural wood flooring can be high maintenance and subject to damp, woodworm and the scratches and scuffs of everyday life.  With the developments in ink-jet tile printing, wood-effect floor tiles now look as good as the real thing; check out the full range here. For wall tiles, white brick tiles complement wooden worktops, cabinetry and rustic furnishings perfectly. For a really organic feel opt for natural stone. Here, we’ve teamed Natural Slate in Burnt Sienna with Levantine ivory wall tiles for the perfect country kitchen in soft neutral tones, for that blissful homely feeling.       Keep it simple with Field Tiles There’s a reason field tiles have remained a staple trend in tiling and interiors for decades. They are a classic choice and simple enough to work in harmony with so many kitchen styles, with the option of different colours, sizes and finishes. The field tile has a long history in interiors due to their functional yet decorative qualities. Whether your kitchen style is contemporary, modern or an eclectic mix of both, you can be sure that field tiles will in, some way or other, work easily into your scheme.  Just take a look at the beautiful settings below that showcase how a simple field tile can complete a space. Installing field tiles in a grid layout is one of the most popular tiling methods, but field tiles can also be brick bonded to add an extra element of interest.     Be bold with a statement floor Flooring is fundamentally a functional design aspect in a room. It can often be overlooked in the design process or thought that functional needs to be plain to be practical. Nowadays this is no longer the case, recent years have seen vast developments in ink-jet printing – meaning beautiful patterns can be printed onto practical porcelain tiles! There’s a whole host of options out there from bold patterns (check out the Odyssey collection) to all sorts of heavily detailed wood and stone-effect tiles. For an authentic look, its worth considering Victorian Floor Tiles. There’s a wealth of patterns, designs and colours to choose from, all with the advantage of longevity due to their hard-wearing nature.  This means Victorian Floor tiles are perfectly suited to kitchens that endure high traffic, spills and the daily tread of busy families!      Experiment with layouts If you’ve opted for simple cabinetry or a more contemporary style, but you’re still looking to add that pop of interest, why not try tiling in a herringbone layout? Any brick tile can be ‘herringboned’ but it works especially well with ‘kit-kat’ style brick tiles that are long and thin. This is also a great way to introduce colour into scheme whilst including some texture and interest.    Feature walls The kitchen is the perfect place for a feature wall, especially if you’re looking for a way to inject a bit of personality and style into a practical space. You don’t need to tile entire walls, just the areas prone to spills and splashes making splashbacks a great place to start! Just take a look at our Mosaics collection and explore all sorts of colours, textures, patterns and shapes that are perfect for transforming a space. Shown below are Fable and Medine Mosaics, both made up of beautiful intricate patterns in a multiway of colours or a soft muted grey. For an even bolder look, explore our Odyssey collection, home to a huge variety of patterned tiles in a range of sizes.  If you still can’t decide on kitchen tiles, find your nearest Original Style retailer. Visiting your local tile showroom will allow you to appreciate the look and feel of a wide range of tiles and get help and advice from the experts Read more...
  9. The Green Tile Trend

    The Green Tile Trend Every few years, the popularity in green tiles surge – and, guess what, it’s that time again! Although they don’t appeal to everyone, you cannot dispute the class and elegance that a green colour palette brings to a space, and we for one, absolutely adore this reoccurring trend.   What’s particularly wonderful about embracing the green tile style is that there are varying intensities. For those of you who love bold, dramatic colours – an emerald green may be an exciting choice. Whereas, those who are looking for more subtle influences perhaps a teal, pattern or pastel palette would be more applicable. If you’re thinking about incorporating green tiles into your home, we’ve picked out some of our favourites from various collections to provide you with some green-spiration! Victorian Green, from our Artworks collection, is one of our most popular green tiles. Intense and rich in colour, this tile is a timeless classic. During the Victorian era, strong bold colours such as emerald greens, gold, burgundy, crimson and intense blues were of great interest and were used in the ‘best’ rooms of Victorian households. Adding to the grandeur of this tile, various mouldings are also available. From the characterful Egg & Dart, Victoria, and Skirting through to the decorative Scroll and Hogarth borders. Pair Victorian Green with any of these mouldings and you’ll be on your way to creating a beautiful space full of character and charm. The Eden range from Living, will be loved by those who relish in the colour of rolling hills, wild woods and tropical paradise. Eden enables you to bring the outside in and is a subtle, modern approach to the green tile trend.   Our most renowned collection features a gorgeous, classic green which can be incorporated into various patterns and borders. Team with Regency Bath and London Stone for an earthy colour palette or Black and Dover White for a striking, contemporary look.   Read more...
  10. Our top 5 interiors using pink tiles

    Our top 5 interiors using pink tiles There’s a real buzz around ‘Millennial Pink’ this year in interiors and we’ve got to admit we absolutely love the trend! The soft and muted tones of Millennial Pink pairs well with so many other colours, like green, copper and white. Whether it’s a pop of pink or a full wall, it’s no surprise the colour pink is so popular. This week, we’ve rounded up five of our favourite interiors using millennial pink and naturally they all incorporate tiles…   1. Pink paired with patterned tiles For a more subtle shade of pink - these Metropolitan Clover field tiles from The Winchester Tile Company are great for those who prefer an understated effect. But for a real statement, team them with some patterned floor tiles! Here we’ve used Odyssey Primo Persian tiles. There’s plenty of patterned floor tiles to choose from in our Odyssey collection. So these Clover tiles would also look great with Knightshayes or Pentillie designs.   2. Contemporary kitchens Teaming white tiles with a pop of pink paint is a great way to add some interest into a scheme. In this setting we’ve used Ice White tiles from the Tileworks Collection with Copper Orabella Mosaics. A strip of pink paint ties the whole look together and injects some warmth into a cool toned interior.   3. Mosaic accents Mosaics are brilliant for adding some colour into a bathroom, whether you use them in a small splashback or to cover a larger area. Showcase some ‘Millennial Pink’ in your bathroom with these Actamira Mosaics; they make for a beautiful contrast in a white bathroom.   4. Show stopping bathrooms To make a real statement with a stronger pink, go all out with these Panorama Spring brick tiles from The Winchester Tile Company. Team together with copper fixtures and fittings for a striking contemporary look, in our opinion pink teamed with copper is a winning combination!   5. Off pink If you like the idea of adding some warmth to your walls but you are not sure you want to commit to pink, why not opt for a more neutral shade? The Dulux Colour of the Year Heartwood is perfect for this.  For the below bathroom setting we’ve teamed different tones of grey together with a similar tone to Heartwood.  This shade is ideal for warming up a scheme and it works well in any room in the home. Keep up to date with tile trends on our Instagram we are always sharing lots of beautiful imagery and ideas Read more...
