We have a wonderful selection of homely vintage tiles to choose from; perfect for injecting some period charm into your home.
Reasons to Buy Vintage Tiles
Brick shaped vintage tiles
If you’re giving your kitchen or bathroom a makeover this season, the simplest way of introducing a new style or look is to add some new wall tiles. When it comes to tiling a wall space in a vintage manner, one tile type stands out above the rest; the classic brick-shaped metro tile.
We have some very stylish metro vintage tiles to choose from. Firstly, for a simplistic, rural, country farmhouse look, try our country cottage metros; they have an aged, rustic, bumpy finish, with slightly wavy edges that help to add vintage character to the tiling display. Secondly, for a shabby chic look, we have a selection of smooth and bevelled metros with a crackled glaze; cracks riddle this way and that across the surface of the tile. Brick shaped tiles are perfect for creating a herringbone splashback or feature wall in a bathroom or kitchen.
Victorian vintage tiles
We mustn’t forget about those interior floor spaces. When it comes to injecting a vintage look into a bathroom, kitchen, living area or hallway floor area, Victorian vintage tiles are a fantastic choice. Here at Walls and Floors, we have a great selection of charming period tiles to choose from; perfect for injecting Victorian charm into an interior space.
Firstly, we have our patterned Harran vintage tiles. They have an ornate blue and white design, and are ideal for creating a room-stealing statement floor in any room throughout the house. Secondly, we have our Victorian unglazed quarry hexagon tiles. Made from sturdy clay, they come in four distinguished colourways, and allow you to create a vintage floor space whilst still ticking off the popular modern hexagonal trend. Thirdly, we have Gosford vintage tiles; striking geometric mosaic tiles, also made from clay, which are perfect for creating a room-stealing focal point.
Parquet wood effect vintage tiles
If Victorian patterns aren’t for you, why not create a good old fashioned wood effect floor? We have some very characterful wood effect tiles to choose from. Made from durable porcelains and ceramics, they’re hard-wearing and don’t require ongoing treatment and maintenance, unlike natural wooden flooring. For a vintage look, choose a wood effect tile with an aged, weathered look, and apply it in an interesting, ornate herringbone layout. Alternatively, choose of the crate or parquet effect faux woods from our designer Louisa Charlotte Collection.
