FYI--Carrera Marble Look Alikes
I love the look of carrera marble, but hesitate to use it for the bathroom due to the maintenance factors. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Tile Shop carries a line of carrera glazed porcelain tiles that are very realistic looking. It's called the Sophia Series. They have three different colors: white, green, and gold. The white looks like Calcutta Oro, which has blue-grey veining with some red. I compared it against the Jeffery Court carrera marble tiles from Home Depot.
It comes as large as 12 x 12 and also in 6 x 6 and 3 x 6 sizes and it's made in Italy.
I'm also going to get samples from Dal Tile because they also make a carrera look alike tile, too.
If anyone else knows of a good source for other carrera look alikes, please let me know!
