Just like a sandy Californian beach, San Mateo marble is a soft and delicate looking stone. It has a creamy color palette with a golden beige mottled pattern. It looks just like rippled sand, creating a serene environment in your home. It is an irregularly patterned and therefore no two tiles are the same; this is the charm of a natural stone, which many man-made materials often attempt to replicate.
Marble is a famously durable stone that has been used for external applications for centuries. In Renaissance Italy, marble was used to enrich architecture and bring sculptures to life due to its incredible beauty. In fact, Michelangelo regularly used a pure white marble for many of his works. It's interesting to hear that many of these constructions still exist today, therefore there is no doubt over the resilience of this incredible material.
Nowadays, marble is often reserved for inside the home where its beauty can be maintained more easily. It's ideal for kitchen floors, backsplashes, and countertops because of its incredible heat resistance, and is regularly used in hot countries to maintain a cool interior.
If you're looking for that gorgeous glossy sheen that marble is so famous for, then a polished finish is the look for you. This is a highly refined look that involves buffing the stone and removing its top layer in order to create a brilliant shine. A polished sheen reflects the light within a room, creating a feeling of spaciousness. This is ideal for those with a small kitchen or bathroom that need to think about how their design will affect the room's atmosphere.
Furthermore, a polished finish is super easy to clean. There are no bumps or ridges that could grip the dirt, therefore a quick mop with a pH neutral cleaner is usually sufficient.
San Mateo marble can create the perfect delicate and classy neutral design. Its classic coloring and understated pattern mean it has incredible design versatility. Create a traditional design, with dark wooden furniture, soft neutrals, and a glass lighting. Alternatively, you can create a sleek and contemporary look by keeping to clean-lined white walls and furniture.
Our San Meteo marble tiles look great in a bathroom setting as a backsplash or shower wall. They create a gorgeously tranquil environment and pair beautifully with a traditional roll top bathtub and sink.
