Luxe living for the whole family

Calacatta Black porcelain tile is an artistic marvel, sure to wow your guests with its dark polished finish and creamy white veining. The breathtaking natural stone it was inspired by has been used for centuries to enhance the look of buildings and homes. This is the only polished porcelain tile made in the United States with anti-stain technology. As always, our tile is made with natural ingredients and therefor resists mold, mildew with no sealant required.

My kitchen looks like a totally different room.

“Love it!”

“I put this tile on my kitchen floor, because I have black counters and wanted something to match. I have my cabinets painted white, and didn't want to rip them out, and I was afraid that I would end up having to do a black and white checkerboard pattern from the 50's on the floor. Then, I saw this tile in Lowe's. I used a white subway tile on the backsplash. My kitchen looks like a totally different room. Very clean looking with the reflection of the polished tiles. I love it! Thank you Lowe's, for having something that makes it look like I spent a fortune! ...and for having installers to put it in for me. Quick, easy, beautiful!”

“Very nicely made tile that has a marble look to it”

“Has a variety of colors in it so it's sure to match most any decor. Very evenly cut and lines up well. Easy to install and looks very good once down.”
