Black and White Victorian Tiles

If you are looking to recreate the charm of a traditional monochrome period look in your home, our Victorian black and white tiles are an authentic choice to add the wow factor to your floor surfaces. Many UK properties built from around 1860 onwards would have had traditional geometric tiling on the front path or porch, in the hallway or kitchen, and monochrome tiles can look fantastic in bathrooms and conservatories too.

At Victorian Tilers Surrey, we supply, deliver and install a wide selection of authentic Victorian floor tiles, including beautiful black and white Victorian tile designs that will look stunning in many areas of your home. See our product range below and be inspired by the wide variety of chequered monochrome designs that can be created using square and hexagonal floor tiles, with and without a decorative border, to replicate or restore your period floors to their original glory.

The Victorians may have been known for their opulent and colourful interiors, but simple yet eye-catching monochromatic schemes were frequently used alongside. Black and white checkerboard patterns were particularly popular for their versatility, and today they are one of our most popularly requested installations.

Simple chequerboard floor designs can fit the smallest of spaces, including porches, lobbies and entrance areas, adding elegance and a greater sense of space to your home. Plain, narrow hallways can be transformed into beautiful decorative spaces with a huge choice of tile designs that can be created with just two bold colours and a variety of border patterns. Use traditional geometric tiled floors in kitchens and bathroom to provide a stylish, practical and durable surface underfoot while making a sophisticated design statement in your home.

Traditional Victorian black and white checkerboard tile designs offer limitless options to enhance your property, both inside and out. Take a look at some of our recently completed projects for ideas and inspiration.

One of the best tradesmen I’ve ever worked with! Would absolutely recommend to anyone. We had our Victorian hallway tiling redone and couldn’t be happier with the result. Kevin is highly skilled and a master of his craft, and also highly professional, kind, courteous and considerate. He is completely reliable and his attention to detail is second-to-none. Incredible product and service! Thank you so much Kevin :)

Kevin and his team spent 3months renovating the whole ground floor with underfloor heating, etc working around kitchen fitters from another vendor. Kevin’s project managing skills can’t be questioned. Involved in the project Kevin supplied plasterers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters getting everyone working in conjunction with each other and with this, when a tradesman stated a time of arrival they turned up on the dot. The quality of the work was exceptional with nothing being to much trouble when working with such a demanding client as my wife. Don’t hesitate to ask Kevin about any bigger project as he has built up a talented group of tradesman that have and could solve the issues we all have finding good quality tradesmen that turn up and want to supply a top quality end result.

Reigate Tile Emporium won the tender to replace two floors of our house with tiles that had not been properly laid when our house was built just over two years ago. We had various companies around during the tender process but the minute Kevin Harris arrived to review the proposed works, it was immediately apparent his attention to detail, knowledge and advice were leagues above everyone else. Thankfully they went on to win the tender ! And wow what an amazing job they did. This was no simple or small job. We had issues with the original screed not having been dried out correctly or the laitance removed before the original tiles were laid. All these issues were identified by Kevin and a plan instigated to ensure the necessary corrective actions were taken. Throughout the works we were kept up-to date on an almost daily basis - nothing was too much trouble. I can’t say enough about Kevin and his teams expertise. And the final result? Just amazing - even the surveyor appointed by our Loss Adjuster commented that it was some of the best tiling he has ever seen. We are so so happy with the final result. All I can say is this - I doubt they are the cheapest but considering the nightmare we went through having to move out of our property for 14 weeks due to the poor job that was originally done, think really hard if they quote and aren’t the cheapest. It’s just not worth taking the risk. Reigate Tile Emporium seriously know their stuff and more importantly are passionate about what they do and their workmanship is simply superb. Like everything in life, you get what you pay for! Thank you once again Kevin and the team - incredible job - we’ve fallen back in love with our amazing house thanks to you.

Keith and his team did a great job for us on a very challenging project. We wanted our breakfast room and kitchen better linked by tiling through with matching tiles, spanning old-fashioned wooden floorboards and concrete, with the added complexity of underfloor heating throughout. Keith helped us with advice on suitable tiles and design - we settled on porcelain wood effect planks, which are amazing. The installation was complete within a week. The team worked tirelessly; tidying up and cleaning up at the end of each day. We are delighted with the result. We also had a prompt response to address an inevitable couple of snagging issues we needed addressing. Top notch throughout.

Great service, friendly, reliable and honest. Definitely will go back again. Refreshing to use a small, personal shop rather than a hideously big chain with sales staff with no knowledge of their product.

After struggling to find a good tiler, I contacted Kevin to see if he could assist with tiling our new bathroom. So glad I contacted him. He knew exactly what needed to be done and was incredibly professional, helpful and accommodating throughout. His tiler did a great job. Very happy with our new bathroom. Thoroughly recommend Tile Emporium. Thank you Kevin and Lee.

From discussing ideas, through to purchase and installation of Victorian style floor tiles in our porch, it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with Kevin and his team at The Stone Tile Emporium. They have been patient, helpful throughout, were fair on price and the quality of fitting exceptional. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
