ALL THE BENEFITS OF MARBLE LOOK PORCELAIN TILES
VIVES Cerámica features a wide selection of marble look porcelain tiles, the material in vogue for interior designers, decorators and architects.
Some of the advantages of porcelain marble tiles when compared to natural marble are the following:
- Porcelain tiles are defined by, amongst other things, their great resistance and easy maintenance.
- Marble is a porous stone and thus stains when a fluid penetrates its surface. In contrast, porcelain stoneware stands out for its low porosity, making in it ideal for areas where it is exposed to different liquids such as the kitchen or bathroom.
- Marble is, by nature, heavier. This makes working, transporting and installing it more complex and therefore more expensive.
- As a manufactured product, a porcelain marble tile guarantees homogeneity in tones, pieces, graphics and veins; on the other hand, the natural marble can vary in colour, shapes, and veins. In addition, its color can change over time. Furthermore, the qualities of a porcelain marble tile can be tailored to a project’s specific needs, adjusting its color, design or finish.
The beauty of this material
has captivated home designers and decorators for centuries and only recently we have perfectioned the technology that allows us to shape its designs to our will.
