Venato 1x3 Herringbone and our White Glass 3x6

Here is the Venato Carrara 1×3″ Herringbone Honed, installed in a spectacular bathroom. In the background is our Brilliant white 3×6″ glass tile (for $9.95 in 2016) so it gives you some perspective of how incredibly white based this product actually is. It really is the whitest tile I have ever seen and so consistent, you cannot see where one sheet of mosaic ends and another begins.

Updating the same page this image above is added on August 12th 2016. This shows the Carrara Venato 1×3″ Herringbone Polished. I like looking back at it historically, there has been no change in the product in two years. That is consistent!

    love your products and looking at your blog to see them applied.

    With this Venato Carrara is it mostly cool tones or are there some warm grey tones to it? loving the look of this, but having trouble tying cool tones into a floor tile that is not gray toned. I know a lot of Carrara backsplashes are paired with wood floors and look great, but I don’t have wood floors in my budget. I was liking an Arizona floor tile called Fusion Bianco which is a cream base, but possibly a small hint of grey.

    Sorry so long. Thanks for taking to time to read my dilemma 🙂

    • Thank you for your email.

      It looks like Fusion is a Porcelain or a Ceramic Tile.

      The Venato has some but few warm tones to it, less than 10%. It would be the best bet to go with this item, unless you wanted a closer match then if so I would go for the 1×3″ Herringbone in Crema Marfil available in Honed and Polished.

      If you are dead set on the Fusion, then my advice…… order samples and start comparing against the Fusion sample.

      Let it sit in the room you plan to modify and see how the light impacts it.

      Thank you

    Any idea what color grout was used on the backsplash in the picture of the stove with the polished herringbone tile? Would love to achieve the same look! Beautiful tile!!

    • Hi Amanda,

      We do not. We are just grateful that customers send in pictures. What customers do seem to be doing through is matching the veining color to the grout. It reduces the number of colors used on the canvas if that makes sense. It simplifies it. It is a good idea. Probably not a new idea, but I like it and can see the same style duplicated in other customer pictures whether in Bianco or Venato.

      Wish I could give you a straight answer.

      Thank you

    What border product would you recommend for this tile? I am using this for a kitchen backsplash and have a wall without cabinets that needs a border for the tile. Thanks!

    • Hi Robin,

      I would either cut the 1×3″ Herringbone into strips itself for use as a border as well as presumably the floor? I am not sure what your design is. Or use the 1×2″ as a border (again I am assuming the 1×3″ is on the floor).

      Or I would use the 3×6″ and cut into a chevron, I would try and keep to a herringbone style border or keep to other shapes I am using, if I am using a brick format 3×6″, then I would probably go with a 1×2″ brick format border.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you
