That gorgeous Carrara and Calacatta marble, with their classic white and gray veining, has been used for centuries in homes and public venues. But these days, this natural marble is striking up a debate among homeowners, contractors and designers. We all love the look, but the debate about the maintenance and wearability is bringing up questions about when white marble is appropriate to use.
The tile industry has heard this debate and the technology for manufacturing porcelain tile has evolved to a level where the market is now offering porcelain tiles that emulate the character and feel of genuine marble. The greatest benefits of using this porcelain tile is its durability and that is does not need to be sealed. The tiles that are now available replicate the look of classic Calacatta Gold, traditional Crema Marfil and the ever popular Bianco Carrara. Talk to the staff at The Tilery to preview this exciting new look in porcelain tile.
