The Beauty of Victorian Floor Tiles
Posted on 14th December 2016 at 16:54
So you’ve moved into a new home and want to make it yours. You can paint the walls. You can choose patterned wallpaper. You can turn fitted furniture into changeable wall décor. You can add carpets, rugs and throws to add a little colour and character. Or you can lay Victorian floor tiles.
The Victorians knew a thing or two about tiles. Once they’d perfected the production of vast quantities of tiles in many colours—in the mid-to-late 1800s—they went all out and used them everywhere!
Kitchen ranges and fireplace surrounds, hallway, bathroom and kitchen floors and walls, pubs and churches and meeting houses of all kinds soon sported tiles in a bewildering array of colours and patterns. Outside and inside, tiles were a hit. And no wonder. Cleaning was definitely a Victorian pastime and cleaning tiles is much easier than sweeping a packed-dirt floor, beating a carpet, or scrubbing unvarnished wooden floorboards.
The Victorians were also very fond of colour and understood how a touch of brightness could add cheer and character to even the drabbest meeting hall.
