Carrara Venato Collection just goes together from format to format like a dream. White based, really white based. From format to format.
Owned exclusively by thebuilderdepot.com and trademark protected. This incredible marble can only be purchased from our website. Considering that (and we own it exclusively) we made the prices fair, as fair as possible, trying to allow customers to add value back to their homes.
For example; the Carrara Venato Honed 6×12″ is $8.00 a square foot, the Basketweave is $10.95SF and Free Shipping on the basketweave Honed (thru Feb 2016). The Arabesque can be bought by the square foot honed for $16.95 and also these items are in Polished as well. (we try and offer everything in honed and polished). Or if you are like me, by it in borders already cut and remove the black or gray section, or leave on. Depending on the look you are going for, Arabesque Border Black Marble Edge Honed and Polished for $13.95 each or with Italian Bardiglio edge for same price in Honed and Polished.
An amazing collection endless combinations but a secret as we have actually yet to spend any money advertising it, we have just grown the old fashion way. Word of mouth. We have appeared in trade press, but that is because they asked and the same applies for our DIY spot on “I hate my Bath“.
For us the reality, marble is a finite resource our quarry will like others run out or become more difficult to get to the places we need to. So advertising a product that you have absolutely no rush in selling in the big trade press makes no sense. They can cost over $350K. I was shocked. That would change a $10.95SF Basketweave to over $30SF which I suppose is where the others are. Instead we have gone for a no frills marketing strategy. We are not chasing numbers, we have no debt. We want to do the best possible job and then pass it on ensuring a hard-work ethic continues, “do more with less”.
In fact our hurry to sell is so little that we do not even have a sales team. Just people to provide clarity and honesty, for example; one employee has a degree in forensic science with a major in law and another in Pastoral Theology. This is not a sales team and this is who we look for. Honesty. Present the facts let the consumer decide. Never sell. If our job is done right, the product will sell itself.
