Geometric floor tiles are part of Britain's heritage and were used originally to ornament medieval churches, monasteries, and the homes of the aristocracy. On this page you will find a selection of popular designs drawn from Victorian pattern books and also some more modern designs. These patterns are only a guide and can be altered both in shape and colour to create the perfect design for your floor. We can also match patterns from existing floors you may have seen, for example in a church or stately home. Please note that all designs here can be altered to suit your own preferences, so if you can't find a style you like we will be more than happy to help you find the right design for your floor.

Main Pattern

Components of Victorian Floors

 

A Victorian floor is traditionally made up of three elements; the main pattern, the border and the infill tiles. Any border can be paired with your pattern choice, but for many domestic floors a thinner border is usually more suitable.

Price Guide

 

The cost of a Victorian floor can vary considerably depending on the pattern, border and colour choices. As a general rule, the more tiles per square metre, the higher the price of the floor. This is mainly due to the fact that it will require much more labour to lay these tiles. Other factors to consider are that decorated tiles will cost more than plain tiles, and even certain colour tiles will be more expensive than others. The intricacy of the border can also have an effect on the overall cost of the floor. We can provide a detailed breakdown of all costs after an initial consultation and we will be able to create a stunning floor to fit your price range.

 

There are many ideas that we can use to reduce the cost of the floor, however. For example, using colour combinations in a simple pattern, as shown above, can have a dramatic effect and create a more intricate floor design.

Colour Combinations

 

We have created these images to show how a simple pattern can be transformed by the use of colour. By selecting a simple pattern and altering it in this way, you are able to create a more intricate pattern yet remain in budget. Here, the Richmond pattern was chosen and by adding additional colour tiles, you are able to see how it is possible to create an interesting floor design from a very simple pattern.
