Floor and wall tiles and mosaics online shopping in Philippines? The durability of the stone you choose is dictated by its makeup. Most marbles are made of calcite, which is a very soft and porous mineral. This means that marble will be more likely to absorb stains and to etch or lose its finish over time. Having a honed, or matte finish, for your marble counter can help disguise some of the etching. However, not all marble is made primarily of calcite. Green marble, made of serpentine, does not etch as easily, but it can spall or flake with prolonged contact with water. Quartzites that are labeled as marble, like Thassos or Azul Celeste, are extremely durable and much harder than some granites.
When it comes to countertops, quartz is quickly becoming an affordable and low maintenance alternative to our beloved marble. There are even new trends for accessorizing your countertops, like vintage plate racks made to display your grandmother’s china. Hardware and metal finishes continue to push the envelope—think brass, nickel, and matte black. Removable wallpaper companies are making it even easier to experiment with pattern on walls and backsplashes. Consider 2020 as the year of the kitchen! Carrara marble like that shown here will always be in style, but if you’re a red wine drinker, quartz could be a much better fit for you and your kitchen. While it looks like a natural stone, engineered quartz is more affordable and less prone to stains.

A marble countertop in a kitchen where cooking happens won’t always look pristine, no matter how well you maintain it. But that’s part of the beauty of natural stone, says Bruno; over the years it acquires a patina that lends character, and many people consider that an asset. But there are still some things you can do to protect and preserve it. We asked Bruno for his advice on the best way to care for a marble countertop. Start with a good sealant. “Marble is one of the more porous stones, so you have to protect the surface by keeping it well sealed,” says Bruno. “When you buy the countertop, there’s no sealant on it. You could ask the installer to apply the sealant, but you can easily do it yourself once the countertop is in place.”
Tile Express joined once again the annual PHILCONSTRUCT event last November 7-10, 2019. Held at the World Trade Center and SMX Mall of Asia, PhilConstruct is the country’s biggest gathering of who’s who in the building and construction industry. This year marks the 30th year of Philconstruct. We featured some of our best-selling products such as the Pasadena, Architect, and Vienna tile series. As well as the Rustico, Mureto, and Creole mosaics, which are all perfect accents to these tiles. We also featured our new sanitary ware products from Vivari, where a live product demo was conducted for the Chase Gold Smart Toilet, our top of the line toilet that features a heated seat and wireless remote control . Professionals from the construction and design industry, as well as students came to visit our booth, and enjoyed some of the fun activities we’ve prepared for them. We would also like to thank our branch team from Ortigas, Megamall, Novaliches, San Fernando, Molino, Silang and Carmona for assisting during the event. Find additional details on here.
