Terracotta tiles

Terracotta has a unique presence, it matures with age and creates its own character that even though often imitated by ceramic tiles will never be rivalled for its charm and warmth underfoot.

Once the terracotta has had previous sealers removed it lightens in colour, it can then be darkened if required by applying a Boiled Linseed oil and sealing with a satin finish.

With the Traditional handmade terracotta tile floors being laid in barn conversions or even modern styled homes we restore them quite often and enjoy bringing back their original beauty.
