If you live in the UK, you’ve definitely seen original Victorian floor tiles before. In the entrances and hallways of many homes in Britain they’ve survived the test of time. Their placement is no coincidence. Tiles were expensive and impressive, and you’d want to make sure your visitors saw them! Fortunately our tiles have the same wow factor, at a much friendlier price.
You have a few options here. You can pick a repeating pattern to create a beautiful geometric floor, or use black and white tiles in a traditional chessboard pattern. Both choices will give your visitors and guests a Victorian welcome to remember. You don’t need to live in a period house to pull this look off – these tiles are just as home in a postwar semi or a new build.

It can be used on the floor or, for a more daring look, as a backsplash on the wall behind kitchen counters.
When used on the floor you’ve got a few options to create a space that works for you.
Use it by itself on the floor, especially in smaller spaces, to create some character.
In open plan kitchen/living areas it can be used to designate and differentiate a section e.g. the kitchen floor, with a wood effect tile like Woodglam Natural used on the rest of the floor.
