Real Marble Vs. Marble Inspired tiles: What is the Difference?

Real marble tiles are of course, made out of real natural stone. These types of tiles are available in an endless array of naturally occurring colours and patterns, allowing for a unique and personal touch in any application. As with most natural materials, real marble tiles will require a certain level of care and maintenance in order to ensure their longevity and luxurious appearance. Natural marble tiles are porous in nature which means that they have tiny holes on their surface that can absorb spills or dirt if the material is not treated properly. These tiles will require sealing in order to be best protected; sealing your marble tiles is often recommended prior to installation in order to avoid any potential staining or discolouration caused by tile grouts or adhesives. After the tiles are laid and dried, they can be sealed again to ensure a high quality finish. Natural stone tiles should be re-sealed every couple of years or so depending on their wear over time. It is also recommended that cleaning products that are specific to natural stones are used on real marble tiles as these types of products are specifically designed to be gentle enough on their surface while still offering a thorough clean. You can find more information on caring for natural stone tiles in our Resources page.

Eterno Marmo Marble Inspired Tiles

A new addition to our already extensive collection of designer tiles, the Eterno Marmo collection is available in two exquisite styles as well as a vast range of impressive sizes.

Marble inspired tiles on the other hand are tiling options that are designed to look and feel like real marble but are made of porcelain instead. Porcelain tiles are well known for their immense strength and durability in the home, being almost completely non-porous which in turn means they will not require sealing. These types of tiles are resistant to staining, scratching, heat and water, making them a popular solution in busy areas of the home such as the kitchen or bathroom. These tiles are created using a high definition image of marble that is printed directly onto the surface of the tile. Each individual tile in any given collection will show a varied pattern to create a more realistic finish; it is important to note that in these types of tile collections, you can expect a certain level of variation in patterns however, there will be some repetitions so mixing and combining your tiles prior to laying is an important step in achieving a high end finish in your tiling project.
