Stone is the original permanent building material, so it’s no wonder we’re hard-wired to appreciate it. People are also very good at noticing when it isn’t the real deal, too, so you’ll be glad to know that Porcelain Superstore’s stone effect porcelain tiles have been fooling people who should know better for as long as we’ve been selling them! The trick with imitation stone tiles is to introduce a degree of randomness into the designs. People quickly spot patterns, a hallmark of mass-production. Thanks to our suppliers’ craftsmanship, you’ll be treated to a set of tiles that look and feel like they’ve been carved out of a mountainside. At the darkest end of the spectrum is Arctic Anthracite, sultry and striking with just the right amount of reflectiveness to have the ultimate gleam of quality. If you prefer something dazzling, go for white marble effect tiles – they are truly beautiful. And in between you can choose from a wonderful earthy range of stone effects, all built to impeccable detail for a designer finish that’ll light up any room. If you’re looking for stone effect tiling with a difference, try mixing and matching. In our Ardesia range (available in ocre, natural or almond), every tile is designed to be different to end up with an almost randomised, ad hoc design (which of course you’ll spend hours getting perfect before you commit them to permanence).
