Tiles have been around for millennia but it was the ever inventive Victorians (namely Herbert Minton) who revolutionised the way they were produced and consumed.

Parquet flooring is so beautiful! Classic and modern all in one go, plus it’s a timeless style choice for your home. If you don’t have the largest budget, or a beautifully maintained period property, how can you achieve this classic look? Tiles! Not the obvious choice for a wood flooring substitute but tiles are an excellent way to get the look you want at a fraction of the price of real wooden parquet flooring.
