Old victorian tile floor


Upon buying my house I removed an old carpet in the hallway and found this old Victorian tiled floor. It's only partially tiled as the bit under the stairs seems to be concrete. Any suggestions what to do to finish it ? Shelving to cover the concrete? Wooden floor? Concrete paint?

That's sharp!

Originally there was a wall or cupboard below the stairs----

If you could post a picture from the front door ,down the hall it might be easier to get good suggestions===Mike====

Cool floor!
Can't tell from the pic, but is the concrete lower than the tile. If so, I'd do tile.
It is extremely unlikely you will find the identical tile, but you may find something that will coordinate with what is there. If you look for tile, don't forget to consider the thickness of the tile.

What do you plan to do with that area? A built-in of some sort, or piece of furniture would be my first choice. If it is near an exterior door, a bench to sit and take of shoes might be an option.

Cool floor and it looks to be in reasonable shape. Somebody probably disliked the color. Anxious to see the long view from the door.

I would build yourself some nice storage drawers under the staircase. I will see if I can find some picture ideas.
