Jazz up your floors with a splash of 1920s style with Lancaster, a fantastic range of ‘hydraulic’ tiles designed to replicate the colourful encaustic-style cement tiles that were all the rage in the roaring twenties.
Authentic replication of hydraulic encaustic-style tiles
Eye-catching colourful surface design
Hardwearing porcelain construction
Taking their inspiration from the ‘hydraulic’ encaustic tiles that peaked in popularity alongside the Art Deco movement, these visually astounding floor tiles are the antithesis of boring flooring. Constructed from durable porcelain and available in two colourful surface designs, Lancaster is guaranteed to turn heads no matter where it’s installed! These tiles are scored down the middle to create faux grout lines, giving a singular tile the appearance of four smaller tiles. For a pleasing finish, these faux grout lines require grouting, so if you are looking for a matched grout line throughout the rest of the installation we recommend a 2mm joint.
