Offering a timeless look, our gorgeous range of encaustic tiles are perfect for period properties or modern homes that need an injection of character. Encaustic tiles are crafted traditionally, with many of the tiles in our range made by hand for an authentic, high-quality finish.
Encaustic tiles, also called ‘inlaid’ tiles, have been popular for centuries. From Medieval kings to the Victorians, encaustic tiles are found all across North America and Europe thanks to their practical nature, appealing aesthetic and religious heritage. Recently, these stunning tiles have seen a revival in popularity, cropping up regularly in interior design magazines and high-end property developments.
Thanks to the refined manufacturing process of encaustic tiles, UK homes can benefit from detailed, vibrant walls and floors at a great price. Whether you’re simply refreshing your bathroom design or starting from scratch in a new property development, encaustic tiles offer eye-catching flair and serve as a stylish feature in any space. What’s more, the diverse styles of our encaustic floor tiles give them the versatility to enhance almost any environment - which means they’re just as at home in a high-end Manhattan apartment as they would be in a colourful Moroccan souk.
Encaustic tiles are inherently resilient, making them suitable for installation both outdoors and indoors. If properly maintained, they’re guaranteed to look beautiful for decades to come.
The greatest thing about encaustic tiles is, undeniably, their good looks. A far cry from the recent design trend towards minimalism, encaustic tiles have seen a recent revival thanks to their punchy, graphic colours and ornate detailing. Encaustic floor tiles offer a refreshing change of pace from the standard whitewashed flooring found in most bathrooms and kitchens - which makes them the perfect fit for stylish homeowners looking to stand out from the crowd. Encaustic wall tiles are also right at home in kitchens, providing a striking way to spice up a boring backdrop.
For a toned down approach, we also have a number of plainer encaustic tiles that can either work on their own or be paired with some of the more colourful tiles in our range. The Vintage Greece White Tiles are a prime example, as they look equally amazing when covering an entire surface or used amongst colourful tiles to create a unique pattern.
Period properties or modern interiors inspired by the past can be taken to new creative heights with a number of our encaustic tiles, such as the Vintage BW06. Available in a retro-inspired pattern, this tile would suit a restaurant or charming café well. Some of our products are particularly reminiscent of Victorian encaustic tiles, and would also work in large hallways where they can help to create a grand and lavish entrance.
If you’re looking for a splash of colour, Vintage Aliso White Tiles are both vibrant and stylish. With a pattern and colour similar to Moroccan encaustic tiles, they can be installed in a garden area to achieve a truly exotic aesthetic. They’re also impressive when laid over a large-scale floor space. Paired with wooden tones and accessories dyed in warm colours like red and orange, these tiles can be utilised to design a world-inspired home aesthetic.
