Marazzi American Estates
Marazzi American Estates takes on the challenge of recreating the natural beauty of hardwood flooring in a more durable porcelain tile format. In our humble opinion, this collection has brilliantly succeeded in this regard. Achieved through high-definition 3D printing technology, these Marazzi porcelain tile planks reveal deeply rich color variations, hand-scraped textures, and hand-oiled visuals. Furthering the appeal of this stunning series that oozes natural sophistication, Marazzi incorporated the currently trending wide-plank format to project authentic, inspirational visuals in 6" x 36" and 9" x 36 dimensions. With environmental concerns in mind, the American Estates flooring collection is not only an eco-friendly alternative to real hardwood, but also encompasses limitless applications when it comes to installation; the striking realistic wood visuals of American Estates can be placed in rooms where natural hardwood could never otherwise be seen due to porcelain tile's inherent durability and resistance to climate extremes.
Working to elevate your home décor to new tree-topping heights, Marazzi's American Estates collection offers warmth and inviting comfort to any living space, much like natural hardwood flooring. Resistant to moisture, freeze-thaw cycles, and scratching, these porcelain tiles are likewise virtually maintenance-free, making them perfect for any busy household. Another benefit to the American Estates collection is that the tile planks are rectified, that is, they are cut after the tile planks are heated and fired in a kiln. This minimizes variation between edges of the tiles and allows flooring installers to use extremely narrow grout lines, further enhancing this Marazzi collection's real hardwood appearance.
Three deeply earthen hues comprise this distinct Marazzi floor covering. The appropriately named Natural option reveals the pure intrigue of genuine hardwood with warm fawn hues, giving off a striking resemblance to medium oaks. Showcasing a slightly darker patina, the Saddle color sports a medium hue that presents an inviting vintage lure through shades of warm browns and tans. Rounding out American Estates is Spice, a bold, dark option that exudes affluent mixtures of deep chocolate and coffee-stain browns for an antiquated appeal shabby-chic designers love to embrace. One of the best design secrets that this Marazzi series has is the ability to mix and match both plank dimensions to create a unique visual that further replicates real wood in both sight and physical texture. Worry not; a pattern guide is available to make sure the correct amount is chosen from each size.
