There is only one supreme goddess of beauty, Aphrodite. The legends of the stone refer to marble as an Aphrodite whose beauty has not been matched by any other. Pure and simple, it is more than just a natural material offered by nature, marble is poetry and every vein is a metaphor. These veins convey a unique aspect into every marble tile – windings shaped by impurities such as silex, iron oxide, sand, mud or clay – thus turning it into the point of interest of each space.
Afrodit Marble Slabs are a marvel of nature and regardless of your preferences in terms of design, the book-matched pattern marble is the most enthusiastic way for displaying the natural stone beauty. Side by side, in mirror image, these two slabs highlight the beauty of nature and the fact that natural stone can be an artwork. The ambivalence between open and dark shades underline the stylish veins crossing the surface and the resulting shapes – from shades of black and gray, to cream and orange shades.
Afrodita Polished Marble Slabs are a perfect choice for cladding your kitchen or a stylish bathroom. They can also be used for cladding fireplace, countertops or kitchen cabinets, or for producing special cut-to-size pieces such as the house stairs or window sills.
What you need to know about installation:
Installation is as important as choosing the best suited stone for your project
After unpacking, the marble tiles must be washed and dried
Measure your area first and determine exactly the tiles that require chiseling at the edges
For installing the tiles, we recommend Weber Set Marmo Plus, a flexible fast setting adhesive, also suitable for exterior and projects with underfloor heating
Weber Color Perfect grouting joints will be applied after fixing the tiles for highlighting natural stone, with more than 30 color shades to choose from
We recommend waterproofing for wet spaces, especially in bathrooms
For a correct installation, we recommend contracting a specialist
Tips for natural stone aftercare
Marble is a durable stone, yet for extending its lifetime you should keep in mind 3 procedures: cleaning, sealing and aftercare.
Clean the surface before sealing with LTP Grimex, available in our range of solutions
For sealing the surface we recommend LTP MPG – the ideal solution for polished surfaces or LTP Mattstone H20, a solution based on water
This procedure seals the surface pores by creating a barrier against water, so that stone will not stain so easy.
For daily cleaning and aftercare, we recommend LTP Waxwash, a cleaner that will not influence the sealed surface
For stubborn stains, we recommend LTP Power Stripper and for rust stains, LTP Grout Stain Remover.
Afrodita Polished Marble Slabs are genuine artworks on your walls – the veins have a story that will become part of your house story. In case we did not convinced you yet of the unique look found in every tile of natural stone, we invite you to access our website for more inspiration.
