Many commercial and public buildings, private houses, churches still retain their original Victorian floor tiles - in their entrance halls, porches, bathrooms, terraces, verandas, conservatories - more than 100 years after they were laid.

Victorian tiled floors are not only very tough, easy to maintain, slip resistant, but they are also considered as classic, traditional, impressive and elegant.

We carry out commercial and residential restoration projects in SW London, often in cooperation with other construction and renovation companies, when they need extra care and attention - Victorian tiled floor repaired and restored.

Victorian tiling and restoration
 

Hand cut to size tiles are used to replace damaged or missing mosaic sections, or single tiles. Grout cleaning and re-grouting is very important part of floor repair procedure. Restoration cleaning removes surface and ingrained dirt. Tile sealing with appropriate sealers enhances colors and makes maintenance much easier. We can lift and reinstall damaged or not properly bonded tiles and tile sections with confidence. In some cases all mosaic floor tiles can be lifted and re-laid.

 
New mosaic installation

 

New Original style or Winckelmans Victorian mosaic floor tiles are suitable for outdoor as well as indoors. Entrance halls, conservatories or garden pathways, front steps - it will look welcoming and elegant, will last for many years.

We have more than 20 years professional - working - stone and tile installation experience, and working experience with mosaic - ceramic, stone, marble - tile designs and patterns.

     
                       

In an era where first impressions were all-important, the entrance hall in a Gothic Revival home – as in any style of Victorian house – had to impress visitors and proclaim the social status of the family within. This was easier to do in large halls found in Gothic country houses than in the narrow corridors of the Victorian terraced house. Nonetheless, the principle remained the same. Hall floors were primarily inlaid with encaustic tiles, medieval or geometric patterns being the most popular. These floors were hardwearing and easy to keep clean. Flat - patterned geometric encaustic tiles were described as “the best mode of treating hall floor”. In grander homes, more expensive inlaid mosaics were used instead.

When the hallway carpet is lifted often it reveals Victorian geometric mosaic tiles. In most cases we can fix and restore it. Does not matter how bad it looks. If there are missing, damaged tiles or sections - we replace them. Topical tiled floor sealers and waxes need to be stripped and re-applied periodically. When the hallway floor stain or mark easily, stains are difficult to remove, the grout becomes discolored, when there is uneven appearance over the entire floor - it requires attention - cleaning and sealing. Restoration cleaning will bring out the natural colors of the tiled floor, will enhance the overall appearance. Sealing will protect the flooring from staining, will make cleaning and maintenance easier.

Original Victorian tile designs can be replicated. Modern reproduction tiles are used to fill in missing mosaic sections and to extend existing designs. New mosaic pathway pattern can match existing original - old hallway tile design. New bathroom floor can have the same tile design as original hallway tile mosaic. Damaged mosaic border tiles, when there are holes filled with lead (drilled to hold carpet gripper) can be replaced with new ones. Mosaic border tiles can be re-laid to match new hallway layout, when there are changes in room size and shape. In most cases it is possible to subtract or to add to the original mosaic tile design.

Where the building formed an integral part of an important architectural group such as terrace, the exact reinstatement of at least exterior may be required in some circumstances. The loss of mosaic tiled floors, mosaic tiled steps or path, for example, that forms part of the character of a building is likely to require replication, as non -matching re-instatement may not be acceptable.

Restore original tiling - or lay new mosaic tile? It is largely a matter of considering each case carefully on its own merits. For those, who prefer to keep things original in their period homes, we restore tiles, marble and stone, when possible.
