We saw the introduction of marble effect bathroom tiles to replace marble in the early 2000's this is thanks to the advancements tile manufacturing has made allowing ceramic and porcelain tiles to perfectly replicate marble!

When we discuss the replication of marble we don't just mean a white tile with a grey line running through it, it id designed by taking multiple images of real cut marble then digitally printing them on to the surface of tile (including all the variations) to give a like for like finish!

What Is the Difference Between Marble Effect Bathroom Tiles and Marble?

Marble has been used since ancient times due to its luxurious and expensive appeal. It was typically used in palaces and kingdoms and the more marble used the more it reflected the wealth of the beholder!

The marble designs are versatile with many different origins and classes with the more whiter the stone the more premium the finish! This marble is cut into tile blocks that are heavy and difficult to move around. Chemicals could easily damage them; even water can leave marks that dull its shine. To keep it shiny and lustrous, it had to be cleaned and maintained constantly.

Marble effect tiles, on the other hand, are a modern version of these tiles and are manufactured using predominately porcelain and in some instances ceramic. The reason both materials are used is dependant upon application, for wall tiling on to plasterboard the use of ceramic is ideal due to its lightweight design. Plasterboard can typically only hold 20kg per m2 so it is important that a light weight tile is used.

marble effect bathroom tiles are much more durable then their counter part and can even be used externally providing they offer slip resistance and are made from porcelain!
