With its stunning dove gray color palette, our Shiraz Gray Marble tiles are set to become a contemporary classic.

Its delicate gray stony mottled pattern gives the tile its natural beauty, creating an irregular yet unobtrusive design that makes it exquisitely charming.
Marble is a highly revered material across the world. In fact, many Italian Renaissance artists prized it so highly, they used it to create their most famous works. But behind its stunning appearance lies a functional stone capable of almost any location throughout the home. Its durability means that marble is suitable for flooring across many applications, including bathrooms, kitchens, and hallways. It is incredibly heat resistant meaning that even on the hottest summer days your marble will feel cool, calm, and collected. But even more incredibly, marble is suitable for external applications due to its ability to resist freeze-thaw conditions.
Like many natural stones, a marble tile is slightly porous. Therefore, you may wish to protect your stone with a sealant, helping it to resist stains and other forms of damage.
Our Shiraz Gray Marble tiles have a matte effect, honed finish. This smooth, muted surface is ideal for creating a contemporary look, and when paired with Shiraz Gray's pale color palette, it creates the ultimate in high-end modern design. This is a delicate and understated finish that softens the light in a room, creating a homely, yet on-trend effect.
But the benefits of a honed finish are not restricted to its design. The matte effect offers a superior level of traction when compared to a polished finish. This difference is especially noticeable when used for flooring in areas of the home that are likely to become wet, such as bathrooms and entrance halls, as they often become incredibly slippery. A honed finish offers a slight slip resistance, making it ideal for these applications.
Shiraz Gray marble's beautiful pale gray hue is ideal for creating the contemporary interior you've been searching for. Use it as kitchen flooring paired with gloss white cabinets for a super sleek design or keep it slightly more relaxed with matte gray cupboards. Incorporate a wooden countertop to increase the room's natural elements, alternatively, use Absolute Black granite to keep that clean-lined precision.
