Love Calacatta Marble Look Porcelain? Do It the Affordable Way

When speaking of Italian marble tiles, nothing comes close to the dramatic personality of Calacatta marble. While this type of marble is only found in a small area of Italy, it is one of the most sought after marbles around the world because of its unforgettable look. While many confuse it with Carrara marble which is slightly more accessible, Calacatta marble tiles are known for their whiter colours and more dramatic veining patterns.

Unfortunately, Calacatta marble is not the most affordable marble around. The popularity of the stone makes it one the more expensive stones. Even if one can get a hold of Calacatta, it’s not guaranteed that it’s of the finest quality. The fragility of the stone and the porosity of the marble also makes it one of the more sensitive products which requires constant care and attention. These factors mean that Calacatta marble is often only used on small feature walls, bathroom walls or on a kitchen benchtop.

But how can you enjoy the stunning beauty of Calacatta in a bigger area without breaking your wallet? We are proud to announce that we now have a carefully selected range of brand new Calacatta design porcelain tiles from Italy and Spain.

    i would love a large marble tile as my splashback however the height is 580 and around the corner to the sink it is an awkard size of 640. The large 600 x 600 tiles would ave to be cut to 580 but how would we avoid one large tile and a thin strip of a tile in the small 640 area? i love tbe big marble tiles. Thank you for your response. Regards Anne
