Three Marble-Look Tile Collections Marrying Durability with Design

Posted by Emser Tile on May 29, 2019 6:39:52 AM

The classic elegance of marble is universally appealing for almost any interior environment. Marble-look tile makes the luxurious stone more modern, usable, durable and even affordable in a range of surface applications. See how a porcelain tile construction makes the look of marble more versatile than ever with these three Emser Tile collections that uniquely marry the inherent beauty of marble with the trusted durability of tile.

Large-format tile slabs are enabling new and exciting ways to achieve solid-surface aesthetics through tile in ways that are lighter, and therefore, more usable than solid stone itself. Our Expanse series is the perfect illustration, highlighting how expansive sizes bring a clean and modern look to marble. The flexible collection features expansive tile slabs in dramatic 63-inch by 126-inch, 59-inch by 118-inch, and 47-inch by 95-inch tiles - a notable design trend.

According to Mara Heras, Emser Tile vice president of marketing, large tile slabs have a thinner profile, which allow for more creative designs and installations. Tile slabs are an excellent option for floors, walls, countertops and large islands particularly those that incorporate beautiful waterfall edges. The large tile size reduces, and can even eliminate, grout lines, so you have an expansive surface without seams. You can even install slabs over existing surfaces, like countertops and backsplashes, for an easy way to remodel a home. Click here to explore the entire Expanse collection.



One of our newest collections, which launched in May, Reserva showcases the complex veining of rare marble. The series brings to life the timeless look with multiple sizes, including a mosaic option, and four muted colors with cool undertones. The intricate nuances of marble cannot be missed through the design’s striking high-resolution pattern detail. View the full offering within Reserva here.



The beauty and unique veining of natural stone is highlighted in Emser Tile’s Quest series, an elegant glazed porcelain collection created to emulate three natural stones, including Calacatta marble, travertine, and limestone. Suitable for residential and commercial interiors alike, Quest offers a traditional marble-look tile in both matte and polished finishes and dynamic 12-inch by 24-inch, 32-inch by 32-inch, and 2-inch square mosaic tiles for versatility.
