I like the Carrara marble but want to get it in a porcelain tile. Can you recommend a tile that will look like the real marble?

Hi vjs12

The more you pay the more likely it is will look like marble (but not always, this is just a generalization).

One of the things you will want to know when buying is "How often does the pattern repeat?' That is something about the Ceramic or Porcelain copies. Pattern repeat. If you have a bad installer who has not spread it out, it will look very obvious is the pattern repeats every 4 tiles.

Real marble on the other hand is like snowflakes no two tiles are identical.

There is no one I can recommend, perhaps someone else can but again the key question will be how often do the patterns repeat and are they randomly shuffled in the box.

Thank you

I will definitely ask about the pattern repeat. Thank you David. I found a tile called Themar Venato Gold Polished by Arizona Tile. I hope it will look close to a natural marble.
