Exploring the Versatility of Marble Effect Porcelain

9th December 2019

By Rachael Crockett

At Floors of Stone, it is not uncommon for us to rave about the benefits of porcelain. As a man-made material, it is a practical alternative to natural stone. There’s an endless array of porcelain tiles on the market, so we endeavour to select only the most realistic, charming, stylish options, not to overwhelm our customers with hundreds of variations of the same thing – we’ve sifted through and done the hard work for you! For this reason, our wood-effect porcelain has been a big hit with our clients. However, we also have a soft spot for our marble-effect options.

Marble is a classic stone that makes a huge statement of luxury and elegance. Our collection of marble flooring has been sought out by our clients who like to add an extra layer of style to their home.

Marble Effect Porcelain is our practical and cost-effective alternative to the real thing. It has excellent durability for those who entertain large numbers of guests and is stylish and versatile in equal measure – and its recent popularity is a testament to this. Therefore, we thought it only make sense that we expand our collection even further, to help our clients find their dream floor.

Antique Marble Porcelain.

Our latest addition is our Antique Marble Porcelain. With subdued warm gold veining and a clean white surface, this tile acts as a replica for only the most elegant of marbles. Whilst marble-lovers often go for a contemporary look, this tile is for those seeking a more antiqued, subtle appearance. Replicating a definitive marble floor in a grand edifice.

This tile is brilliantly versatile and would add a sophisticated touch to an office, kitchen or even a bathroom. Due to the lightweight nature of porcelain, this tile would even be suitable for bathroom walls.

Please note, we would recommend checking with a tiler/builder before tiling on walls as walls can vary in weight restriction.

Arabescato Porcelain

Arabescato Marble is a luxury marble with beautiful veining and is held in high regard across the world. This marble is thought to be a symbol of class and luxury – adding that extra layer of elegance to any interior. However, our savvy customers are always seeking practical and cost-effective alternatives which offer an equal amount of style and sophistication to marble.

With plenty of dark grey veining against a light background, our Italian made Arabescato Porcelain is a striking replica of the real thing. If you are looking to capture the attention of your guests, Arabescato Porcelain would work excellently as a splashback, bathroom floor or as a feature piece on the wall of a stylish home.

You can find our full range of porcelain tiles here and order your free samples. If you want more information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our friendly sales team via email, phone or in the showroom.
