The cool tones of the Carrara Venatino marble bring a contemporary edge to your interior design. The pure white background with swathes of pale gray is the design look of the minute. Use Carrara Venatino marble to create a super chic kitchen or bathroom or add it to your living room or bedroom for a luxury design you'll be proud to show off.
Carrara Venatino is a quickly becoming one of the most desired marbles on the market. Famously quarried in Italy, its white and gray tones have become the ultimate choice for those seeking an ultra-modern design. Carrara is a softer alternative to the equally famous Calacatta marble. Those who choose Carrara do so for its ability to blend easily with its surroundings and its subtle veining. If you're looking for an on-trend design with an element of elegance and class, Carrara is ideal.
Its pattern is completely non-uniform, with its veining differing from tile to tile. This creates a uniqueness that cannot be replicated by man-made materials. With a natural stone tile, you'll never find two identical stones. Artificially constructed tiles are generally made to a pattern, meaning that any two kitchens, bathrooms, and hallways could be exactly the same. Therefore, if you're looking for design edge, a natural Carrara marble is by far the best choice.
Highlighting the stone's natural coloring, these tiles have a polished finish. When you imagine a marble kitchen or bathroom, it's likely you'll be picturing the gorgeous shine of a polished finish. This is a high-shine effect that is achieved when the tile is continually buffed. The process removes up to 1mm of the stone but leaves behind a brightened surface which gleams in the light. Marble requires a finish which will make the most of its stunning pattern and color tones - its beauty would be wasted by dullness.
So, it's the ideal finish in terms of design, but what about functionality? It is easily wiped clean, making it perfect for wall tiling in showers, or as a kitchen or bathroom backsplash.
Carrara marble can create anything from ultra-modern minimalism to incredible opulence. Pair it with pure white kitchen units and glass lighting for a clean-lined, bright interior that feels totally luxurious. Alternatively, add metallic accents of gold, copper, or bronze alongside rich tones like a cinnamon red or deep purple for a sumptuous interior. Their warm tones will soften the coolness of the white and gray, adding a sense of coziness. It's a high-end look that will wow guests and excites the senses for years to come.
