Would love to hear if any of you have any knowledge of this product, my tile rep seems to think it is the best. Was thinking of doing it polished for our new bathroom counter. Also considering doing mosaic on the floor, any comments on this. Thank you for your ideas on this, as I need to make decision this week.

RE: Creama Marfil for Countertop

I have crema marfil as a countertop and in the shower. Something I learned along the way is that crema marfil can have different undertones depending on where it's mined from. I bought my crema marfil for my shower, 12 by 12 tile for bottom half of shower, and 3 by 6 subway tiles from Home Depot. the countertop came from a nearby granite manufacturer. They look different frome one another; one has a grey undertone and the other has a yellow undertone. If I'd known that then I would have made a better decision. But the decision to use crema marfil regrets, it's really warm and beautiful. Just make sure that the tile you buy is consistent becaue it can look very different!

RE: Creama Marfil for Countertop

We have crema marfil (polished) in our guest and powder room and love it. But as the previous poster said, you have to be hands on during the install due to color variations. We bought double what we needed (Flor and Decor at about $3.50 sq. ft.) and I sorted all the tiles prior to install to make sure we had consistent color tones and then returned the yellow/orange toned tiles. We installed in 2009 (floors and counters) and have had no etching or staining.
