Pairing marble tile and ceramic tile is a formidable design statement when done correctly. This synergistic coupling can firstly, add more color choices from the pantheon of ceramic tiles to enhance the marble. Then secondly, the marble can contribute depth, formality, and general gravitas to the ceramic tile. Taken together they are greater than the mere sum of the parts. Let’s dive into this for a moment. Colorful ceramic tiles and colorful marble tiles are a good match to create. As you can see below, green ceramic tiles from our Miraduoro Classic Collection and green marble tiles create a good harmony. The perceived refinement and elegance in the pairing lie in the intertwining of the veining in the stone with the featured colors in the ceramic tile. In essence, distinct patterns cohabit in the space to the greater benefit of the design plan.
