Kashmir Gold granite is comprised of a subtle gray bedrock with brown flecks. Throughout the stone run bands of golden orange, which lift the stone above its delicate color palette to create an interesting and highly desired pattern. This is the perfect granite for those looking to avoid dark or bright colors, as its hues are delicate and easy to match with almost any design. Each tile has its own unique set of veins and bands, creating an irregular yet totally mesmerizing look. You'll never find two identical stones, so rest assured you'll have your own piece of the wild earth inside your home. Kashmir Gold is found in the quarries of India, the home of a large selection of beautiful granites, and this one is no different.
Granite is created when molten rock from the earth's core seeps its way to the surface. It rapidly cools and hardens in the lower temperatures, solidifying to form an incredibly hard and dense rock.
Granite is famous for being durable and hardwearing, and its origins as a volcanic rock are evidence for that claim. It is suitably heat resistant, making it ideal for use as a countertop, vanity, or bathroom sink area. A hot mug or curling iron is unlikely to damage the colors of the stone that started life at much higher temperatures. Furthermore, its hardness dictates its incredible scratch resistance, making it ideal for entrance halls, kitchens, and other high traffic areas of the home.
Bringing to life those contrasting gray and oranges, this stone's polished finish enhances the stone's colors in all their glory. The process involves grinding the slab of rock until it becomes silky smooth, then the stone can be buffed, removing its top layer in order to achieve a brilliant shine.
A polished finish is famous for its ability to reflect the light, bouncing it around a room just like a mirror. Your home will feel bright and spacious, making Kashmir Gold ideal for even the smallest kitchens and bathrooms. The effect is a luxurious tile that adds a hint of glamour to a room. It is great for adding a high-end finishing touch to any interior design.
Kashmir Gold creates an opulent design for a relatively low price tag. Its blended cool and warm tones mean it suits both modern and sleek looks, but can also achieve a warm, traditional design.
The subtle color palette is ideal for creating a serene bathroom. Pair it with neutral colored towels and wooden accessories for a spa-like design that will have you feeling totally relaxed.
Kashmir Gold is often used in kitchens because of its timeless style. Pair it with wooden cupboards for a natural look or go contemporary with matte gray shaker style units. This is a stone with incredible adaptability, so don't be afraid to make it work with your style.
