How to lay Victorian Tiles
Once a decoration reserved for the rich and famous, Victorian tiles spread in the late 1800s to the middle classes who wanted to mimic the fine ways of the aristocracy. Throughout terraced streets, tiles were lain in different colours and patterns. A porch with colourful or monochrome tiles looks both impressive and well-kept – future buyers would most likely consider a Victorian tiled pathway a perk. In some cases, it might even add value to the property, although this largely has to do with the preferences of the buyer.
