Victorian Tiles

Victorian tiles supply and fitting for floors in any design, supply only or supplied and fitted throughout Wales and the West from our base in South Wales.

Our ever growing stocks include tiles for:

  • Hall
  • Porch
  • Garden paths
  • Bathrooms
  • Porchway
  • Dining areas
  • Domestic
  • Commercial
  • Heritage work
  • Listed buildings

The applications are endless and our full survey will determine the layout, quantity and cost either to supply only or choose our excellent supply and fix service providing you with a timeless addition to your home for both walls and floors.

When we call to see you, we will show you catalogues and pictures of finished installations in 'actual designs' making it easy to choose from. This includes the many attractive border designs that can be altered to suit any pattern.

If you have existing Victorian floor tiles to be restored, added to or completely replaced, then we'll advise on the most cost effective option for you leaving you with a fixed quotation.

As a leading supplier and installer of traditional tile and stone specialist products, we continually aim to provide the best service available.  

Your victorian tiles (1860 to 1920's) can be cleaned and sealed with full restoration to their former deep and vivid colours by sympathetically cleaning with bio-degradable products. We then simply wash off leaving the surface ready to be sealed for long term protection and supply you with aftercare products to maintain their look indefinitely.

Our services cover Cardiff, Newport, Penarth, Chepstow, Monmouth and surrounding areas.

We are actively involved in restoring and cleaning Victorian floor tiles, also Georgian and Edwardian. Tiles can repaired, replaced or cleaned bringing your existing hallway or external tiles back to itheir original and authentic look.

There are lots of reasons why we would renew tiles that our parents and grandparents enjoyed but unfortunately due to trends and fashions were covered in carpet, wood and more permanent flooring.

Even if they have been 'tiled over' they can still be restored to an exceptionally high standard, retaining your original floor intact.

Fortunately we now have products to 'revive' tired old floors and bring them back to their former glory and by carefully cleaning, repairing and sealing them we can enhance and prolong the life of many types of mosaic, terrazzo and victorian flooring.

You shouldn't seal tiles until they have been thoroughly cleaned using appropriate products that will not harm or discolour the surface but instead 'draw out' the years of foot traffic soiling they will have endured.

Once cleaned they can then be protected with durable sealants that enhance the natural colours creating a low maintenance and beautiful finish.

These two images below show a before and after treatment on Victorian floors originally from the turn of the century.

Victorian tiles and restoration

If your floor has taken too much wear and tear and are beyond saving we can always renew the floors of hallways, lobby's and paths using authentic and original designs. Our favoured suppliers will match or create a design for you and once laid is as good as any original.

We first supply you with a colour catalogue to choose from and carry out a FREE survey taking all the critical measurements transferring these on to a master copy ready for costing. You can then purchase at a discount saving you a stocking charge and we cost the fitting of your victorian floor tiles separately.

Reasons for installing

  • Practical and easy to maintain
  • Decorative and aesthetically pleasing
  • Hardwearing and long lasting


  • Halls, pathways and porches
  • Conservatories, bathrooms and kitchens
  • Shop fronts and retail areas
  • Garden features
  • Architectural and interior designs

A lot of old victorian tiles will show signs of wear and tear and will require a certain amount of TLC and renovation. This is completed by sympathetically restoring old tiles back to as near the original as possible.

In certain circumstances victorian tile patterns will need to be replaced by finding a copy of of your tiles and replicating the original pattern. By piecing together copies or sourced pieces we can then renew any original patterns to their former design.


As an alternative to a victorian tile design, Vives Ceramica have come up with an ingenious copy that when laid looks very authentic.

This is a new design which has only recently been released on the market.

A note from Mike
The kitchen design was 'stunning' and I was fortunate enough to be called in to 'complement' the kitchen with my tiling.
I was made welcome by the customers and I would highly recommend Ikea Kitchens without hesitation.



Very many thanks for carrying out the work at Victoria Mews, Cardiff...
It all looks great in the pictures you sent us by email...
Thank you also for liaising with your electrician Simon Webb on my behalf, for the other work we needed at the house.
