Carrara Venato Bathroom – Customer Pictures

Carrara Venato Shower

In the shower they chose Carrara Venato 3×6″ Honed for the walls with a 1×2″ Herringbone Picture frame (we have a choice of 24 Herringbone mosaics) around the shower unit using a 1×2″ Herringbone Honed inside that bordered with pencils.  A great look, nice and simple so elegant. With the 3×6″ costing just $7.00SF and the Herringbone $11.45SF and Pencil $9.95 Each the Venato collection with over 200 different products has something for everyone.  The trick with marble is what you are looking for and making sure before anything ships to you that the image you have in your mind matches what we are sending.  As we cannot read your mind – this is where we need to work together!

Let us help you. Include us in your plan, your look. We are here to help. If you are 100% OCD and nothing can be wrong “ever” then marble is probably not for you as every single tile has different veining and I would recommend a retailer that can Water Jet cut and pick through tiles to your specification (be prepared to part with $200 a Square Foot).  If you are 40% OCD and want a very specific look and people do this.  Then over order and pick through or email us.  Then we can discuss the costs involved in meeting your standards.  Some people are so specific, one customer for example needed 3,000SF of Nero Marquina, it needed white veining with no more than two white veins per tile and no thicker than 2mm.  We did it, but it was hugely expensive.  As you know, anything can be purchased, you can have any car you want, you just have to pay for it.

If you are like the rest of us and know that a Carrara bathroom can add $30,000 in equity to your home and yes, buying direct can save a fortune then you have found the right place.  We own the rights to this quarry, it is our product, it is exclusive trademarked brand and even then we do not mark it up like a regular company.  We keep the cost low.  We work with a no frills marketing strategy (so iPhone images and no marketing budget, word of mouth growth).  Operating on the lowest cost possible, (examining if anything can be improved all the time), investing everything into the quality of the product and keeping the price down.  We do this to the extreme, an example of this is our Brilliant Glass tile line, we do not even pay with terms (like everyone else), we pay with cash to keep the price as low as possible.  Cash is a great way to work it always ensures you are very well looked after.  As most businesses always need cash!  It also means you are not a debt risk to suppliers, you are therefore provided a better price, quicker shipping and better quality. This is then passed onto our customers. I know….. no debt, it is a strange concept (in a world of debt) but it is one of the ways we make this business work so well.  More of how we can do what we do is on our page of FAQ’s. #3 attempts to address the economics in more detail.

Carrara Venato 3x3 Hexagon

Not quite finished yet: Carrara Venato 3″ Hexagon Honed $11.75 a Square Foot used on this shower floor, customer order 16 sheets for this size area.  Always order 20% more, sometimes people order 30%, it depends what look you are trying to create.  Some customers take out Hexagon pieces and replace them.  Lay it out before installing. Create the perfect picture.  Then when finished please email us a picture.  All we see are boxes :(

Except on this occasion so Yay! :)

Venato Wide Basketweave available online for $11.75SF

Carrara Venato wide Basketweave Mosaic Tile

Carrara Venato wide Basketweave Mosaic Tile with Nero Marquina Black dot available online from the Builder Depot for $11.75 a Sheet. An exclusive collection of over 200 products only available from The Builder Depot.

Carrara Venato 2×4″ Polished and Beveled Mosaic Tile

Venato 2x4 Beveled Polished

Carrara Venato 2×4″ Beveled Mosaic Tile $8.50 a square foot.  Taken in our warehouse with just an iPhone (inside a pallet, inside out warehouse, so not the best photo spot) you can still see the white interior of the box as a reference point to see how incredibly white Carrara Venato actually is.  Just walking through the warehouse and taking pictures of lots as I go by. Always amazed at the white base color of this collection. Beautiful Stone!

Carrara Venato Honed 2×3″ Wide Basketweave Bardiglio Gray Dot

Venato Bardiglio Honed Wide Basketweave

We love Basketweave it is such a wonderful looking product and we want to stock every possibility.  This is our Venato Wide Basketweave for $11.75 a Sheet (we have had the same wide Basketweave Bianco honed in stock for the last 12 months and it has proved popular).  This brings the number of Basketweave options to over forty choices. I would like to see sixty with Blue dots, Greek Thassos and other options.

Please note – these pics are taken by just me and my iPhone at the back of the warehouse – so I apologize for the quality. Low cost marketing = Lower priced products & Higher Quality product. I would rather the money went back into the quality of the product than into a photographers company. I also think it keeps it real, you can see the lid has just been taken of the crate.  We have opened a box and took the picture on top of the pallet of the product.

Venato Bardiglio Wide Basketweave Polished

Another image and crate showing the Venato wide Basketweave with the Italian Bardiglio Gray dot, you can see the consistency between the two crates. Available in Honed and Polished for $11.75 a sheet. It is just so bright and white that it creates a room with such a different look to that of the classic Bianco Honed wide Basketweave.  Both are great looks. (The Venato wide basketweave is also available with the Nero Marquina Black dot for $11.75 a sheet in Honed and Polished).

Basketweave Bardiglio Gray Dot Border

Considering a border. Then consider it Bardiglio Gray for $11.95 Each in Venato Honed and Polished
