The primal significance of a fire is far stronger than its physical presence - why else do we continue to build and restore fireplace hearths in an age of central heating? Fire appeals to our deepest emotions, particularly when contemplated from the comfort of a cosy armchair.
Few things equal the atmosphere of a warm, friendly fireplace during the cold, winter months. A key feature of period homes is the fireplace. The importance it played in the life of the family is attested to by the quality of the materials and the rich detailing (carving, ceramic tiles) that were employed in its manufacture.
The Olde English range of hearth tiles consists of 150x75mm plain tiles in a wide variety of vivid colours. We also have an extensive range of Victorian, Federation and Edwardian transfer decorated feature tiles available in 150 x150mm plus matching 150 x25mm strips.
They are ideal for bathroom, kitchen and laundry splash backs, step risers, fireplace hearths and tea pot stand.
