Why White Tile With Soft Grey Veining?
Many people shopping for a white marble effect floor or wall tile desire minimum or moderate veining. Bright white background with light grey veining sounds like the perfect tile to them.
From the manufacturer perspective, this is an easy task to achieve. In the end, what we call tile is a porcelain body with high definition graphics on it. Therefore, The manufacturer can remove all undesired grey veining from the graphics and create the perfect tile for shoppers.
If it’s soo, why there is so little tile from Europe that comes with a bright white background and a few grey veining and the factories work with designs than the customer’s demand?
Most porcelain manufacturer’s goal is to create beautiful designs while keeping a realistic marble effect.
In the marble industry, what determines the quality of white marble is the character of the veining rather than its color or amount. For examples, Italian Arabescato Marble comes with a heavy dark grey veining and it’s considered superior quality compared to Turkish White Marbles that come with lesser veins in a lighter color. Another example is world famous Carrara Marble that also comes with lots of veining.
Tiny, little veins in a tile give a busy feel.
