Made from ceramic, the 331x331mm Retro tile features a bold geometric pattern in a modern monochrome colour palette to look not only incredibly striking underfoot but also on the wall. highly versatile, the tile can be used to create a traditional, vintage design scheme oozing rustic charm by coordinating with distressed furniture, or can be given a more vibrant appearance when teamed with bold pops of colour and sleek, minimal accessories.
Our BCT Retro feature tiles are glazed ceramic tile with a smooth matt finish and frost-proof glaze measuring approximately 13 by 13 inches. The Retro Black feature is a classic patterned floor tile baroque-inspired featuring an eye-catching geometric pattern with monochrome colours. Complementing both contemporary and classic interior trends it looks stunning in bathrooms, kitchens, hallways and conservatories. This also provides an inexpensive solution to traditional Victorian floor tiles. Made in the UK.
Although produced using modern manufacturing methods, the Retro Black is sometimes referred to as an encaustic tile. Before the advent of screen printing (and more recently digital printing) one technique of applying different colours to tiles was to use different coloured clays. The Victorians called these encaustic tiles which were originally known as inlaid tiles. It is common for patterned tiles to be conflated with encaustic tiles because they share many similar features including repeating print patterns.
Frost-proof tiles are an important consideration for rooms where the temperature may drop below zero such as utility rooms and conservatories. Tiles with a frost-proof glaze have a water absorption rate of less than 0.5% meaning they are ideal for such conditions. Tiles which are not frost-proof may absorb water which would freeze at zero and below, causing the tile to crack.
