Installation Venato 2″ Hexagon Honed by Refashionablylate Blog

Before and AfterThis is our Carrara Venato 2×2″ Hexagon Mosaic $11.75 a Square Foot. (also available in polished) It is being used by Ruthie from refashionablylate in the One Room Challenge (a Challenge undertaken by bloggers) to transform a room in the house. The great part about this blog is it takes you from before and goes through each week to the “final reveal” Here.Screen Shot 2017-02-27 at 8.45.22 AMWe will post a few pictures (not all) of the Carrara Venato Honed Hexagon Mosaic. On the Refashonably late blogthere are a lot more pictures for anyone to look at.Carrara 2 HexagonAnother Great Picture! And the pictures could continue and they do on the customers blog.

As for us I think this gets the point across about how perfectly white the Venato collection is. We can match 4×12″, bullnose, trims, 12×24″ to this Hexagon to create almost any design you can make from over 80 products from the Venato Collection. Along with Nero Marquina and Bardiglio Gray for accents and borders.

Great looking bathroom! Venato Again!

Used in this picture Carrara Venato 1×3″ Herringbone Polished $11.45 a Sq. Ft. for the flooring (grout creates enough COF/Grip to make it safe and polished can be used). Along with 4×12″ Carrara Venato on the wall for $8.00 a Square Foot. $15,000 from a traditional tile and stone retailer, about $4,000 from us. A great save! Who wants to pay more. Not sure any one ever walked into Target or a Publix or any Grocery store and wrote out a check for $11,000 saying “You did not charge me enough” so why pay more for the same product from the same mountain?

Taken from Instagram here. I love the way people can tell others where the products used came from. It is great when designers take the plunge and buy online from us. Carrara Venato especially the 1×3″ Herringbone they have purchased with 4×12″ on the wall is one of my favorite looks.

Prices are subject to change. Valid at the time of this post.

Carrara Venato Shower. Simple and Stunning (rather envious).

venato-shower

December 1st already. Where did 2016 go. Last night I had to ask my wife is this 2015? What year is this….  I just had a complete mind block. But that really means 2017 is in less than one month!

Carrara Venato has been exceptional quality this year and as we have already bought a years stock for 2017 we know it will be great next year. Carrara Venato has the ability to mix mosaics, field tiles and trims perfectly. It is pre-sorted to a set standard displayed on huge 10FT x 6FT board, they simply match the tiles to the standard and it has to be in the range by 5-10%.

In this picture we have Carrara Venato 3×6″ Subway Tile for $7.00 a Square Foot along with Venato Herringbone 1×2″ Honed $11.45 a Sq.Ft. and the pencil trim $9.95 each all honed.

Carrara Venato is a Trademarked Brand only sold by The Builder Depot. It cannot be purchased elsewhere. You maybe able to find a Herringbone for less. But look at it, it will be darker, it maybe thinner (not 3/8″) it will have rows or columns removed not making it a full square foot. There are tricks the industry uses to lower prices. We do not. Why trick people. We have a perfect marble at an incredible price and we are the nations only Google Trusted Store!

The Venato Hexagon is a spectacular tile and such an incredibly white based marble.

(this is a cut & paste from a customers email below)

Hopefully these pictures are good enough quality to use.  We are absolutely thrilled with the end result!

 Here’s the scoop on this bathroom.

This was a $35k upscale custom bath designed solely by us.  It is a timeless design thanks, in great part, to the marble.

We laid out all the tile for the shower walls and floor border.  (See pics below) Our tile guy loved that we did that.  (I *may* be a little bit of a control freak.)

Fixtures are all Kohler, floor is heated, towel bar is heated….it’s Massachusetts, after all!

The Venato Carrara tiles blended *stunningly* with the “Calcata Luccicoso” counters and tub surround.  Pictures don’t do it justice:)

We read every instruction and tip you gave on your web site and followed them all to the letter.  ***Things couldn’t have gone any more smoothly!***

We hired a tile guy that was *well versed* in marble installs.  He was floored (pardon the pun) by the quality of the marble tiles.  He is no longer skeptical and has referred clients to your site!  I can’t emphasize enough how his exemplary skill impacted the outcome of this job!

Carrara Marble Mosaic and Tiles

6venato

$7.00 a Sq.Ft. 3×6″ and $10.95 a Sq.Ft. Black Dot (Nero Marquina) Basketweave Mosaic (this sample board is all honed but also available in Polished).

This sample board we have for our new warehouse is over 10FT tall. It shows as many of the combinations of Venato Carrara from 3×6″ to Arabesque to trims to field tiles as we could. The idea is to show that this collection can be mixed.

You can switch and mix it up from 6×12″ add a pencil and then put in 3×6″ with a mosaic border.

Carrara Venato 4×12″ Subway Tile

Carrara Venato 4x12 PolishedComing out of the shower customer created a double vanity using Carrara Venato 4×12″ Polished Subway Tile.

What can we say or comment. Very little. The installation is incredible. They have taken their time, blended the veining to insure that their are no “clumps” of Gray veining or white blocks. The tile has been well mixed and carefully selected. With the consumer giving the installer a range of tiles considered acceptable. The rest discarded. Over ordered by 20% to create a HGTV bathroom.

In short that is the trick. A bit of hands on at the start. Only “YOU”. Only you know the look “YOU” want. With one hundred and fifty square feet of tile you could create multiple looks. You should design and layout a small section, perhaps five square feet on the floor and then communicate talk to the installer about the design and flow of the veining. If you have paid for a qualified person he would do all of this before installing. He would ask questions like “How do you want the veining to flow?” If he is not asking this, I recommend reviewing his reviews and looking into his work more carefully. He maybe a wonderful tile contractor. Absolutely the best. But this maybe his first natural stone install. You do not want to be this guys learning project.  Your bathroom is not his school of learning.
