A luxurious glazed ceramic tile with a smooth matt finish and frost-proof glaze measuring approximately 13 by 13 inches. The Victorian Charcoal Statement floor & wall tile is a digitally printed classic patterned floor tile inspired by period floral prints which are fashionable in hallways and conservatories. This provides an inexpensive solution to traditional Victorian floor tiles. Made in the UK.
Although produced using modern manufacturing methods, the Victorian Statement tiles are 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. It will also look perfect for a kitchen splashback area
