Terracotta Tiles

29th November 2022

Ever wanted a reclaimed Terracotta floor but couldn’t afford the price? Well, our Terracotta tiles will allow you to recreate that timeless look but at a fraction of the price. The most popular size that we sell is the 200x200x20mm tile which can be seen in deVOL’s Classic English Kitchen Showroom here at Cotes Mill. Feel free to come and visit our showroom as once you have seen the floor, I know you will fall in love with it.

In order to recreate this look, a number of steps must be followed. Whilst that may seem like a daunting task, rest assured that we sent out a guide with all our orders as well as making the steps available on our website via the following link: You can also find a very helpful video on Youtube which shows the steps.

Above shows the tiles in the first stages of being laid. The tiles at this stage have been coated with our Boiled Linseed Oil. Now, to follow, you can either coat the tiles in a Clear Wax or an Antiqued Wax before the grout is applied. The clear beeswax will keep the tiles looking quite orange whereas the antique beeswax will give the tiles a darker, more authentic appearance. Below is an example of a floor post installation where the antique beeswax has been used.

When laying our 200×200 tiles, you can choose to lay them in a number of different ways. Below you can see just a handful of examples that our customers have chosen.

Although our 200x200x20mm tiles are the most popular, we also sell 4 other patterns which can be seen through the following link, Why not take a look and, if they are of interest, don’t hesitate to request a free sample or quotation from us.
