How neutral tones and replicating natural stone create calming interiors

Add a touch of effortless luxury and warmth to any space with the Venus collection of large-format porcelain tiles from Kaolin Tiles.

How neutral tones and replicating natural stone create calming interiors

Adding natural and neutral elements continues to be an effective method of elevating the aesthetics of a building’s interiors. Materials like stone-look porcelain tile can help make interiors feel connected to the outside world, while neutral tones can boost the overall versatility of the space either as a subtle backdrop to louder accent pieces or by adding depth and warmth.

Providing a compelling option for those searching for warm neutral stone tones to complete a high-end look, Kaolin Tiles have added to their unique range of premium stone-like tiles with the Venus collection from their Planet Stone range.

Kaolin Venus Collection

An elegant replicate that subtly displays the physical and chemical structural characteristics found in stone, Venus is particularly suitable for the Australian market. Its delicate cream hues make it the perfect complement to Australia’s warm weather and coastal aesthetics, while its soft tones and matte finish give it a functional advantage in creating a fashionable neutral look or in companionship with something luxurious.

All Kaolin tiles are designed and engineered to perfection, and are the flattest tiles available. They are so accurately made that there is no more than a 0.3mm variation between any two tiles. Kaolin tiles also feature a true 90-degree edge, whereas most manufacturers put a slight bevel on the edge of their tiles.

By exceeding industry best specifications and standards, Kaolin is able to offer a product so exact that grout joints as small as 0.5mm can be used. They have eliminated water expansion issues in their tiles so grout joints can be virtually invisible. This feature, combined with the large-format of the tiles themselves (750x1500mm), results in less seams throughout the floor or wall installation, making the overall look of the interior flawless.

An extraordinary amount of thought and design went into creating such beautiful tiles, including how they can contribute to a sustainable future. Kaolin has achieved Level-A GreenRate certification from Global GreenTag across their range of 750+ products, which can be used for assessment by the Green Building Council of Australia. It is the most comprehensive green certificate in the porcelain tiles industry – by choosing Kaolin products you should get the maximum score under the GreenStar rating system.
