Statuary white marble looks are timeless and in high demand. Many people find the tiles a bit too busy when they see them in person. What they saw in flooring magazines and on websites.
- What is the manufacturer’s view on designing white tiles?
Manufacturers take into account the changing design preferences of their customers when designing tile designs. Manufacturers want to create a stunning white tile with unique designs that are their version of Carrara & Statuario marble.
They want their tile to be recognized by the flooring industry and to support their brand. White tile is a popular choice and a name most trade professionals are familiar with.
- So what do they do?
Marble veining, as many may be aware, creates beautiful random patterns when combined. As a painter painting on canvas, we don’t always see the entire design until it is finished. It is difficult for manufacturers to create authentic marble tile designs due to their unique appearance and veining.
This requires that both the whole design and individual tiles must be visually appealing. As with a puzzle piece, one bad piece can ruin the overall aesthetic. A reputable factory will not make white marble tile that doesn’t look like marble. To achieve the desired look, the factory softens the color of the tiles’ veins to reduce the contrast.
- But what about tiles with little veins?
We are now marble wholesalers and even had our own experience with white tile with little veins when we ordered our first white tile.
We believed that the product would sell immediately when we placed the order. We listened to our customers, and everyone asked for a white tile that had little vining. It took us many years to sell this tile, as the tile had very few grey veins and was white on its background. The design did not give the marble effect and looked busy.
If you are looking for a white tile floor that looks like marble but doesn’t have too many details, then we recommend a tile with low contrast and soft gray veining.
- What is a Face? & Why is it important?
The design on the tile’s face is what we refer to as the face. It may be slightly different from the variation. Instead of having the same design repeated on every tile, modern tiles have multiple faces. This is to increase the resemblance with real marble where each piece is unique.
One tile is not enough to make a decision. To avoid a busy look, tiles with low contrast and soft veining are better than tiles with more veins.
