Porcelain Tiles with white marble look are timeless and very much in demand. However, many people find these tiles a little too busy once they see in person what they fell in love with in flooring magazines or on websites like Pinterest or Houzz. Why is that?
While taking the consumer’s design preferences and needs into consideration, the manufacturers’ goal is to produce a beautiful tile with a unique design that will become their own version of Carrara, Statuario or Calacatta marble.
Since marble veining has a character, those veinings create a beautiful, random pattern when they all come together. They are like the little pieces of a big puzzle. We can’t see the whole picture by looking at individual pieces alone.
Therefore, no reputable factory would produce a white marble porcelain tile where the veining won’t create a beautiful marble. To create a less busy look, they would instead reduce the contrast by softening the color of the veins on the tile.
When you look at one single tile, little veins may give the impression of a subtle look. However, since this type of veining has no character, they won’t create a pattern, and they look busy.
White marble porcelain tile with large but soft veining won’t look busy.
For that reason, if you want to create a white marble look with slight veining, We advise tiles with soft veining and lower contrast than tiles with little veins to avoid a busy look
