One Room Challenge with Calacatta Gold 1×3″ Herringbone Honed

Calacatta HerringboneCalacatta Gold 1×3″ Herringbone Honed $18.95 a Square Foot and Free Shipping for 2017. Also available in Polished finish.

2016 has been and continues to be one of the best Calacatta Gold years ever. In terms of wines (if this was a wine) it would be a “Vintage Year”. The base is perfect and the amount of veining is just right, not busy but enough to see that it is indeed one of the most prestigious marbles in the world. It does after all adorn the walls of the Vatican.

Italian Calacatta Gold Marble Tiles – Honed and Polished

Italian Calacatta Tiles MarbleCalacatta Gold to be cut into 6×12″ Honed and 6×12″ Polished for $17.95 a Square Foot

Not a Great year for Calacatta field tiles. Out of stock on the polished 3×6″ for all of 2015 and 2×12″ polished.  This is not because we could not buy Calacatta Gold, on the contrary we have refused almost 40 containers simply based on the quality and then what met with quality in early summer did not meet the price point we wanted for our customers.  But it looks like we are on a roll (literally the tile moves along these rollers). On the plus side we have ...

Calacatta Gold 1×2″ Polished Italian Marble Mosaic Tile available online for $15.95SF

Going through the warehouse again and lifting of the lids of the crates to see what is inside (this arrived May 28th 2015). This Calacatta Lot of 1×2″ Polished Mosaic Tile looks incredible.

People are used to seeing Carrara in retailers.  The common view of Carrara is gray with gray veining.  The reality is if you have offices in Europe (like us) you can actually get some far lighter shades of marble stone.  In this image above we are showing the 1″ Hexagon Calacatta with the 3×6″ Honed Venato.

Anyone looking for a Calacatta bathroom but doesn’t quite have the budget for Calacatta 3×6″ Subway Tiles ($16.95SF) the Carrara Venato Collection in a 3×6″ format is a great substitute ...

June 1st we received in a new crate of 3×6″ Calacatta Gold Subway Tile from Italy.  Here is a few tiles from the box laid out.  It is nice looking not overly busy with a really white base.  Looks great as a kitchen backsplash or in a bathroom.  Either way no one will believe you have genuine Italian stone for just $15.95 a square foot.  That is 8 tiles of finest Italian marble cut from the mountains of Tuscany, then shipped from Alpharetta, GA to your home.  Quite amazing really.  Any questions please let us know sales@thebuilderdepot.com
