They say that your home is your castle – this may have been true for Queen Victoria but most of us live in houses that are rather more modest! Many British homes built from around 1860 (when these types of floors became popular for houses as well as palaces, churches, pubs and shops) may well have had a tiled front path, porch, entrance hall or kitchen.

Victorian architecture is a series of architectural revival styles from the mid-to-late 19th century. Victorian refers to the reign of Queen Victoria (1837–1901) and was called the Victorian era. However, many elements of what is typically termed “Victorian” architecture did not become popular until later in Victoria’s reign. The styles often included interpretations and eclectic revivals of historic styles mixed with the introduction of Middle East and Asian influences.

Geometric floor tiles are suitable for homes and gardens as well as public spaces. Embrace the splendour of tradition by recreating authentic designs or enjoy the simplicity of a classic checkerboard pattern in black and white.

All of geometric floor tile designs are built up from basic individual shapes – square, rectangle, diamond, triangle, octagon, hexagon and trapezium, with various shapes and sizes designed to co-ordinate with each other. There is no need to be daunted though, as in the following pages we show you how patterns and borders are made up and how many pieces are needed for a square metre/foot area or, in the case of borders, linear metre/foot.


Quintessentially British geometric floor tiles. Recreate authentic Victorian and Edwardian patterns in halls, kitchens, bathrooms, conservatories, as well as paths and patios. They can be used in restoration projects and are ideal for feature floors in modern homes.


The pattern is the same layout as York but the square is bigger (75mm/3”) and placed alongside the longer edges of the octagon.
