Occasionally Bianco Polished 2″ Hexagon is whiter than Venato. Pictured here is Bianco 2″ Hexagon Polished Mosaic Tile
This crate of 2″ Hexagon polished Bianco caught my eye in the warehouse yesterday. It has an incredible base, really white. The overall base color is as white as Venato. The veining is clear. On a scale of 1 to 10 this is a 10. An exceptional block was cut to make this tile. We do have 3×6″ to match. For this specific lot please mention this blog post dated August 28th.

Customer installed Honed 6×12″ Carrara Venato in the shower
They used Carrara Venato 1″ Hexagon Honed to create a shower insert
Finally they used more Carrara Venato 6×12″ Honed on the Bathroom Floor in a Herringbone format. Amazing job!!!
But please note these Herringbone designs do not just come out of the box like this. Herringbone designs require rectified tiles. Natural Stone is not rectified. So it is a real pain in the rear to create. Not for a novice and certainly not for the $5SF install price Ceramic tile installer you may have hired, I mean I am talking Institute of Marble certified experts, who can shave marble tiles to create rectified tiles. Otherwise you will have to over order by 30-40% and throw tiles away if they are not an exact fit.
It will be pricey, you may have to order more. But in the end you will have an incredible floor which the product still only ended up costing $10 to $15 a square foot. This design requires great skill! Please call 800-308-9359 or email email@example.com before ordering and attempting this Herringbone flooring look so we can make sure everything is clear and understood beforehand.
Thank you to Deborah for sending in pictures of her newly renovated Carrara Venato Bathroom. It looks incredible. The order consisted of 390SF of 6×12″ Carrara Venato Subway Tile Honed and 20 sheets of the Carrara Venato 1″ Hexagon Honed. Exclusive only to thebuilderdepot.com Carrara Venato creates a less busy look to that of traditional Carrara and combined with it’s whiter base gives an overall cleaner look.
Whether honed or in polished we are confident that our exclusive collection of Carrara Venato marble tiles, mosaics and trims will give you just the look you have been dreaming about.

Our Carrara Bianco 2″ Hexagon Bianco Polished was featured in this Home Improvement Blog Post
Finished Product in the words of Jess (taken from her blog) “it’s so pretty and shiny”
The web has become an incredible place for companies that want to sell premium products along with superb value. If you focus on quality even a small company that is tucked away in Alpharetta GA is all soon all over the World Wide Web. Offering incredible value and quality we have grown from a relatively small quiet business to one of the fastest growing privately owned companies in North America.
With our close attention to block selection from Italy we have become a top supplier to Nate Berkus Associates design firm and a preferred Carrara supplier to the Loews Hotel Chain, in addition we have exported product to Holland, Australia and New Zealand to name a few (trying to do our part to help the trade deficit).
We often look on the web for images of our products. There are quite a lot out there and we like to mention them to help our new customers make informed choices and to provide a helpful link back to the blogger that has mentioned us. So thank you Jessica and Bakter for your posts ‘Tile Time‘ and ‘Bathrooms and Kitchens, Oh My! (Renovation Update)‘ and the pictures on the blog look great.
To our readers, if you are looking to see pictures on the Carrara Bianco 2″ Hexagon polished Jessica has taken some and reviewed it for you. Just click the links above to take a look. And questions please let us know firstname.lastname@example.org.
