The term “shade variation” is the differences in the color and/or surface you see with the tiles in any one collection.
The differences in the shades of the single tiles can result in them looking uneven when you see them side by side, and so strong variations in shading is a plus point for collections that are inspired by natural materials, like stone or marble.
As a result, we recommend taking tiles from several boxes when fitting these tiles to ensure the finished surface has the optimum degree of variability and randomness.
Given the nature of the product, any references to colors here are only provided as a guideline.
V1= uniform variation, the difference among the pieces from the same production run are minimal.
V2= Slight Variation, the color of the tiles is basically uniform with some shading in similar tones.
V3= Moderate Variation, the product has deliberately moderate variation in the shading, resulting from the original grain or veining of the natural materials, or produced to suggest vintage effects, an aged look or a particular texture.
V4= Substantial Variation, the evident contrasts are used to depict the natural and cultural references that inspired the collections.
