Biancone marble is an Italian origin stone with an off-white, light gray coloring. It has a subtle gray marble pattern, creating a slightly mottled effect. The pattern is understated, resulting in a fairly uniform coloring throughout the stone. It's a great addition to any home, offering incredible design versatility.
Marble is a hardwearing and durable stone. It has metamorphic geology and is formed when layered sediments are under the correct temperature and pressure conditions. The result is a relatively soft stone compared to some of its igneous cousins, but it is famed for its beauty and elegance.
Marble has a slightly porous surface, meaning tiles will need to be protected with a stone sealant to create sufficient water-resistance. Once this has been done, its suitable for almost any area of the home, including flooring, walls, kitchen backsplashes, and fireplaces, wherever your imagination will take you.
If you're looking for a marble with a contemporary finish, this honed surface is ideal. When the stone is ground down, it creates a beautifully smooth surface. There are no bumps, ridges or holes in the tile, it is just a satin matte. This is a great finish for durability and practicality. It is fairly slip-resistant with its muted effect holding enough traction to be suitable for use on flooring in kitchens and bathrooms.
It's also incredibly hardwearing. Whereas some finishes need regular care to keep them looking their best, a honed finish only looks better after years of use. It cannot be dulled over time. Just clean regularly with a pH neutral cleanser to keep it looking light and bright.
The stones neutral color palette makes it ideal for incorporating into almost any design. Create a luxurious bathroom setting with a traditional roll top bath and creamy colored towels. Add a simple, lush green pot plant for a natural touch. Hallways become warm and inviting, wowing guests and creating that calming 'I'm home' feeling. Your kitchen will feel bright and spacious with this tile incorporated into its design.
