Interceramic Contour tile flooring showcases the wonderful attributes of white marble in the form of a more durable ceramic product. Great for floors as well as wall accents, Contour will take any otherwise ordinary home décor and transform it into one that belongs in a palatial wonderland. This high-density ceramic is much easier to maintain than bona fide marble floors, as it requires no special cleaners and is resistant to normal household chemicals. Marble flooring is highly sought after, and while the aesthetics of it are gorgeous, marble is more porous than other natural stones such as slate or granite. Often people who install natural marble stone in their homes as floors, countertops, and bathroom accents often regret it later as water and spills can alter the coloration of the marble over time. Interceramic's Contour collection eliminates these potential problems, as this ceramic tile's water absorption rate of less than 3 percent ensures that minor spills won't erode the marble-look design.
Each of the two colors in the Interceramic Contour stone-look tile collection comes in a matte finish, two main sizes, and some different options for wall accents and mosaics. For the floor, choose between equilateral 16" x 16" or elongated 12" x 24" ceramic tiles in both the Calacatta and Zebrino options. Calacatta is a bright white with mid-tone blues that streak and swirl throughout the tile, creating a very striking look of polished cut marble. Zebrino is more uniform, with horizontal streaks and off-whites mixed with grey hues. Calacatta also comes in 3" x 11", 11" x 13" mosaics, and a 11" x 12.5" mosaic option with interspersed hexagonal wood-look patterns great for establishing optimal contrasts and accents. Zebrino is offered in an 11" x 13" mosaic option great for accenting bathroom interiors.
