Carrara Venato Bathroom Paradise.

The Builder Depot Carrara Venato Bathroom Spring 2017This picture sent in by a very happy customer shows how well the different sizes of tile are matched up by the warehouse. The wall is 8×16″ Subway Tile for $9.95 a Square Foot. The wainscoting uses the 6×12″ Subway Tile $8.00 a Square Foot, the 6×12″ Baseboard and the 12″ Chair Rail. (all prices valid thru 2017).

The Carrara Venato collection is actually so white based it fits the Calacatta vanity they have chosen.

At The Builder Depot we stock over two million square feet of just this one collection. It is Trademarked and sold only through The Builder Depot. It is a product line we are very proud of and given by the number of pictures continually sent in the customers agree along with the reviews and the highest ranked Google Trusted Store in the Tile and Stone industry!

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.

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!

Simply fascinated by Arabesque Tiles

It’s clean it’s simple it is that wonderful shape…. Arabesque. This is from Instagram for all those that do not recognize the format. It allows the poster of the image to tag where the products where purchased from.

Other White Options

Buy it on a mesh, buy it loose, buy it small or larger format. Beveled or not to Bevel we have both. Largest collection of Arabesque and still growing.

Simply fascinated by this shape.

Beveled whisper White Arabesque available in Gloss and Matte Finish. The only large format mesh mosaic in the USA and $10.95 a Square Foot and Free Shipping (I know crazy. The only company in the world with it and we charge prices lower than any other company).

Carrara Venato 4×12″ Subway Tile

Venato 4x12 and 1x3Carrara Venato 4×12″ Honed Subway Tile for $8.00 a Square Foot thru 2016.

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.

Shower and Bathroom. Bianco and Venato.

Hexagon BardiglioThis is a great mix of Carrara Venato 3×6″ Subway Tile on the wall (which is currently $7.00 a Square Foot) then Bianco Carrara Hexagon with Bardiglio edge for the flooring. They have then edged that with our 1×12″ Bardiglio Border and edged again with the 3×6″ Venato.

Bianco with Gray Strips BasketweaveSame home following the look through they have used again the Bardiglio striped Bianco Honed 2″ Hexagon Mosaic.

Carrara Bianco Bardiglio Strip 2" Hexagon Polished Marble MosaicThis is what make has made The Builder Depot unique from any other online company or even retailer. We can take pictures of the product, our product (the product that will be packed and shipped to you, it is a huge level of control in an industry that really has none).

This is product that we stock. This is not stocked in a 3rd party warehouse while the person you speak to on the phone is 600 miles away sat on the 32 Floor of some “tech” building and has never seen the product or worse they are not even in the USA.

The people on the phone at The Builder Depot can open the door while on the phone with you and find the product and discuss it with you. Take pictures and send them on. Match up with other sizes. All of this impossible task for big boxes or any other online retailer or Tile and Stone retailer as they just have 2-3 year old concept boards to work off.

“This is one of the main reasons we are able to be a Google Trusted Store and so many competitors or companies in the similar remodeling industry cannot”. Comments David Shearn. “The ability to see the product you are selling everyday should not be underestimated in the results it drives through customer satisfaction.” he adds “How can a person in a cubicle hundreds of miles away sell a natural product or a product that they cannot physically check. You must reduce the distance from customer service to the actual product”. Companies already know this and that is why they refuse to have unbiased reviews on their website. “If you are nothing but a broker you are doomed to follow the same results as all the brokers that have come before you. Irrespective of how much Venture Capitalists, what you to “IPO” so they can “cash out”.

At The Builder Ddepot we “know” what we are shipping. The majority of online companies are “Brokers” or as they do not like that name they call it “Marketplace” but it is a Broker. You buy from their website, they add 20-30-40-60% and then ship direct from the factory or 3rd party warehouse. Chaos. Absolute Chaos. Tried it before many years ago.

Unless you have the product and the people all in the same facility results like this are incredibly challenging to achieve. With their customers paying the price.

For us. We keep it all close. Everything is here. So we can check it off, sign off, double check. Make sure the 3×6″ goes with the 6×12″ and the pencil that you plan to put in-between matches. We can do all this because our customers communicate and we are working with the product every day.

Honed and PolishedHere is the product on the Bianco Carrara Collection page, one of 70-80 different products. The largest collection of white marble in the USA, stocked and ready to ship. No third party. Just premium products warehoused with over 2.5m square feet in Alpharetta, GA. People ask “Why not add a warehouse on the West Coast”. We have been down this road before. The further the product gets from the people you speak to on the phone the less control they have over the quality and knowledge of what they are doing.

It is imperative (and other companies can find this out the hard way) that the person with whom you are speaking to about your order, can physically see and touch your order. Can mark the crate as “Sold belongs to Remodelers, Inc.”. That pictures can be traded.

Honed Hexagon Bardiglio StripHere it is on the product page. Price is subject to change but currently for 2016 it is $12.95 a Square Foot. (I cannot find any company that competes with this price at ‘C’ grade Italian Marble).

Mixing Venato and Bianco

Venato 12x24%22 along with Bianco Long Octagon and Bardiglio Strips

A great idea and design. This is Carrara Venato 12×124″ which is $9.95 a Square Foot, but not wanting it to be too slippery in a bathroom they inserted and added the Diamond Long Octagon Honed Mosaic $12.75 a Square Foot with a 1×12″ Bardiglio Border strip.
