Ahhh. The elegance of natural stone; and the next level of luxury? Vein cut stone! Vein cut stones are sliced in the opposite direction as a cross cut stone, revealing a definitive linear pattern. Take for example a natural marble, if you slice it one direction, there are swirls, clouds, and veins that churn into the vision most of us have in our minds for natural stone. But when the marble is sliced in the other direction, an entirely new design is revealed—one that by today’s standards as a more contemporary or modern appeal.
As beautiful as a natural vein cut stone is, it isn’t for every budget or every lifestyle. The good news is that you can achieve the luxurious look of vein cut stones in budget-friendly ceramic tile! Today’s state-of-the-art manufacturing processes allow the realistic recreation of natural vein cut stone in easy-care ceramic. As a bonus—ceramic tile never needs sealing, and it cleans up easily with just water and a touch of dish soap. Let’s explore some of the fabulous vein cut looks in our Essentials Ceramic Tile collection!

If you prefer a more traditional look? We’ve got you covered. Vein cut’s linear pattern may at first glance appear more modern than cross-cut design, but as you can see in this kitchen, our Essentials Charisma Silver vein cut tiles are right at home. Running these large format tiles lengthwise in the room can make a smaller space feel more expansive.

Bathrooms take a lot of abuse, day in and day out, making the space ideal for ceramic tiles.

The colors in Vision Glacier are timeless, paving the way for a modern vanity, backsplash tile, and accessories.
