Period flooring specialists in Derby is part of Alternative Tiles Ltd. We are specialist suppliers of period floor tiles with a showroom in Derby but we supply customers throughout the UK and abroad. The designs are based on the Victorian and Edwardian periods but the tiles were originally used extensively right into the 1940s and 1950s. They are hard-wearing, suitable for both interior and exterior use and come in a variety of shapes and colours. We have a CAD design service if required and can provide samples before ordering. As well as tiles we also stock all the chemicals and specialist tools & materials. Take a look at our gallery for examples of some of the hundreds of floors we have supplied.
