White bedrock with blue-gray crystals and a slightly pink undertone
Durable and hardwearing stone
Ideal for flooring, countertops, walls, and backsplashes
Polished finish with a glossy sheen
Imperial White Granite has a cool-toned white bedrock, just as the name suggests. Tiny blue-gray crystals litter the stone's surface, creating a beautiful grainy pattern which adds a new dimension to your design, while the hint of pink undertone gives the stone a modern twist. This is a tile that would look great as the basis for almost any design. Its understated color blends with bold looks, as well a more delicate interior.
Granite is one of the most durable stones available. It is relatively non-porous, meaning stains and moisture damage are much less likely than for other natural materials. It is an incredibly hard stone and therefore is suitably resistant to scratches and cracks. This makes it ideal for use in areas of the home that are likely to see heavy use, such as kitchens or hallways. Granite is naturally heat resistant and is more than capable of handling a hot pan or curling iron, although caution should still be taken to prevent any unnecessary damage.
A polished finish is great for those looking for a high-end feel. It is created when the stone is ground down until totally level and then buffed until it reaches a glossy sheen. The colors appear brighter, and the dark tones are deepened, giving a stunning design depth. The pale colors are enough to make a room feel light and airy, but the highly reflective surface adds to this effect, creating the feeling of space and brightness in even the dullest rooms.
A glossy finish is also great for those who want an easily cleaned tiling solution. Its super smooth surface can be wiped clean in a single swoop, with no grooves or creases to catch the dirt. This makes it ideal for kitchen backsplashes, countertops, and bathroom wall tiling.
The beauty of Imperial White's design is its incredible versatility. Whether you're looking to create opulent traditionalism or a super-sleek contemporary design, Imperial White can certainly deliver. Pair it with duck egg blue shaker style cabinets and glass lighting for a modern take on a Georgian design. Your room will feel super fresh and airy, giving you a serene environment that you'll never want to leave.
Alternatively, take Imperial White in a different direction with an up-to-the-minute gloss cabinet. Add your own pop of color, perhaps a dark navy or green, for an on-trend twist that will give your design depth.
But don't let our suggestions restrict you. Imperial White can be used in all manner of locations. Create a Colonial-style bathroom with a granite tiled shower and glass screen, incorporate a dark wooden sideboard and luscious green foliage to tile the look together. The options are endless.
