Venato Carrara 6×12″ Tile Bathroom $8.00 a Square Foot

Venato 6x12 Subway TileFirstly thank you to a customer for sending these pictures in! Installed in this picture is Carrara Venato 6×12″ Subway Tile $8.00SF Honed used on the wall.  You have to ensure to plan out the look. Get the variation right so the veining is mixed with blank tiles.  The customer and the installer, Kaltin Construction of Naples, FL, worked closely together to perfect this look.

Venato 6x12%22 and Venato 1x3%22The bathroom followed into the shower with the same format. Carrara Venato Honed 6×12″ Subway Tile $8.00 a Square Foot on the wall and Venato Herringbone mesh mosaic 1×3″ $11.45 a Square Foot on the floor (all prices valid thru June 2016).  The mosaic on a shower floor is smart. Grout increases traction creating a wonderful anti-slip surface.

Carrara Venato is a trademarked exclusive product only sold one way through TheBuilderDepot.com.  The Venato collection of 200 Mosaics, Field Tiles and Trims all priced at incredible value considering we are the ones who own it and the trademark.

The 6x12%22 cut into 3x12%22This customer wanted their own creation and worked directly with ben@thebuilderdepot.com who assuming your order meets the minimum order requirement of 250SF has become the master of helping customers make any size you need.  We have have it cut, but need volume to make the whole process worth it, we even put the micro-bevel back on the tile, this is not a simple contractor “chop in half”, job this is a factory finish.

For this particular customer they wanted 3×12″ Herringbone on the floor. This was cut from 6×12″ there is waste, cost of cut and shipping, moving product around to the saws and blades. But still at $8.00SF for the 6×12″ Honed which is an excellent price for this marble, they came out at around $12.00 a Square foot for 3×12″ Herringbone floor tile and it looks, well…. incredible.

Everyone in the chain from block selection, to Ben taking pictures and working directly with the customer, to the installer and then the customer being involved during installation created this masterpiece.  When they explain the price of this bathroom and installation, tub, etc was all under $15K, no one can believe it and why would you. This customer probably added $20K to the value of their home, maybe more . Effectively they were paid $5K to have a new bathroom. Happy New Year for them!

Italian Marble. No Compromise.

Carrara Bianco 6×12″ with Herringbone insert

Italian import 6×12″ Carrara Subway Tile.  Great veining. Always the best from Italy

Great quality deserves great packaging

Made in Italy

Yes another delivery arrived Monday 9th of July.  So first thing after it was unloaded (full container of tiles from Italy) pictures.  I only had time to get pictures of the 6×12″ but this matches the 12×12″ that came in at the same time.  This shipment is impressive, great veining and really nice looking Italian marble.  The thing about these tiles is the cut – the Italian just take the time over making sure the edges are factory beveled with a slight micro-bevel.

The packaging is impressive as well. It just ensures that when the product arrives at its final destination there are no scratches or cracks.  Other suppliers sell loose tile, or material from Turkey, anything to cut costs so they can compete with us.  We operate a very efficient business model and are willing to accept lower margins so our customers get the best possible Italian Carrara.

If you are interested in this particular delivery there is approximately 1,200SF left of each product (as of July 9th) not very much a lot gets backordered prior to arrival.  Please email us at sales@thebuilderdepot.com and reference “6×12″ arrival July 9th”.  We will always try to get more inventory but we can only get more once we find the correct quality of blocks from Carrara Italy.  Stock is always an issue at this quality level.
