Bring some Art Deco aesthetics to your interiors with Hester, an eye-catching range of patterned floor tiles with 1920s styling at their very core.
Authentic replication of hydraulic encaustic-style tiles
Geometric surface design
Hardwearing ceramic construction
Evocative of the colourful and charming floor tiles synonymous with the Art Deco era, Hester offers a refreshing take on a classic design aesthetic in a durable, easy to install single tile format. Ideal for those looking to create an authentic vintage look in their home, these tiles look great when installed in isolation to create a feature floor or when teamed with the other colour variant from the range and used for zoning. We recommend ordering a full size sample so as to see the pattern design of these tiles in its entirety. These tiles feature scored lines that when grouted give the appearance of four smaller tiles per tile.

Can you recommend a wall tile for these? I was thinking initially a linear white but would linear grey or even something like the surface cool grey work colour wise with these tiles? Hard without having samples to compare.
Our advice: Yes, all of the above suggestions would work well with the Hester tiles. Please do make use of our free-cut sample service to make a fully informed decision ahead of placing a full order.
Do I need to seal the tile and grout? I have installed the tiles in a hallway so looking to ensure the best protection from wear and tear.
Our advice: These tiles do not require sealing. You could apply a protector which will help maintain the tiles. We would suggest using our LTP Porcelain Tile Protector - Pre Grout Treatment Interior & Exterior Use SKU: LTP391.
What size tile spacer would you recommend to use?
Our advice: We would advise using a 3mm spacer.

Can you recommend a plain tile that could be used as a border please? Preferably grey. Would it have to be the same size and thickness?
Our advice: For a border tile, It would look best if it was of a similar size and the same thickness as your main tile. A recommendation would be the Swing Grey Wall and Floor Tiles. These are of the same thickness however are slightly less than half the size of the tile. We would recommend you order a sample to test the suitability of this tile.
What is the scored tile width please
Our advice: The scored tile width is 2mm.
