Take a step back in time with the grand Victorian Floor Tile range

Geometric tiles have been part of British heritage and homes for decades, finding particular popularity in the Victorian era from the 1930s and beyond. Originally used to adorn medieval churches, monasteries and the homes of the aristocracy, these tiles certainly evoke a sense of grandeur.

Within a quarter of a century, the popularity of this style had grown with striking geometric tiles installed in castles and other grand buildings in the UK and as far afield as Singapore.

Nostalgia and a love for the Victorian elegance led Original Style to recreate these classic floor tiles with our own Victorian Floor Tile range. Using modern production methods, traditional clay and deeply coloured stains, we developed our collection as an ode to the striking designs of the Victorian era.

One of the most exciting aspects of the Victorian Floor Tile range is that it is made up of separate elements which, when combined, create the beautiful and elaborate patterns that typify the style. For the creative, this provides endless possibilities. Simply take your pick from the shapes and colours on offer and experiment to create your own pattern. Or take a look at some of our designs and choose one that will suit your space the best. Matching borders are available to complete the look.

The range of individual elements makes the Victorian Floor Tile collection exceptionally versatile; why not use the tiles to recreate designs from other eras? Art Deco and Edwardian inspired patterns are a popular staple of our collection.

Suitable for internal and external use, and with under floor heating, the Victorian Floor Tile collection gives the beauty, elegance and sophistication of the Victorian era with the practicality and modern qualities of today.
