Porcelain Tiles with white marble look are timeless and very much in demand. However, many people find these tiles slightlytoo busy once they seewhat they fell in love with in flooring magazines or on websites like Pinterest or Houzz in person. 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 distinctive character, veinings that create a beautiful, random pattern when they all come together. They are like the little pieces toa big puzzle where we can’t see the whole picture by looking at individual pieces alone.
Therefore, most European factories won’t produce a white marble porcelain tile where the veining won’t create a beautiful marble character. In order to offer the look that many customers have in their mind, they would instead reduce the contrast on the graphics 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.
