What are the do’s and dont’s of Victorian floor tiling?

When it comes to Victorian floor tiling, there are some things you should always do, while other key things you should avoid. These include:

  • DO choose tiles that match your decor- while floral and high coloured Victorian tiles may be suitable for traditional properties, this will not be effective in a contemporary home. It’s important to choose tiles that match your style and decor for the most effect aesthetic results.
  • DON’T over complicate the design for modern decor- keep the tiling patterns and layouts simple for a modern touch to the classic, period tiles. For example, checkerboard tiling layouts can be more effective for floor tiling than heavily patterned Victorian tiles, if you want your tiling to feel more modern.
  • DO choose tiling colours to match your colour scheme- as you should when choosing any tiles, you need to be sure that your tile colours and colour combinations match those of your interior design for the best visual results.
  • DONT stick to black and white- Victorian tiling dosn’t just have to be black and white. It can make use of a range of colours including shades of blue and red to match whatever design or style you have in mind. While black and white Victorian floor tiling can be perfect for contemporary homes, other colours can also be included, increasing your design range.
