Shade and Texture Variations

Shaw Tile & Stone offer the distinction of nature itself.


Variations in size, color, texture, and pattern should be expected and enjoyed. This distinguishing characteristic of tile is a source of its natural beauty.

Each Shaw Tile & Stone flooring product is labeled for shade and color variation with one of the following ratings:

V-I Low


Ceramic Tile - Low consistent shade and texture

Low shade and texture variations within each carton.

V-2 Moderate


Ceramic Tile - Moderate shade and texture variation

Distinguishable differences in texture and pattern within each color.

V-3 High


Ceramic Tile - High shade and texture variation

High shade and texture variation within each carton.

Important: It is imperative that tiles from various cartons be continually blended during installation to insure optimum appearance.

Random


Ceramic Tile - Very high shade and texture variation

Random variations of shade and texture within each carton.

Important: It is imperative that tiles from various cartons be continually blended during installation to insure optimum appearance.

For a neat, contemporary-looking tile floor, choose a tile with a low shade and texture rating. A tile with a high or random shade and texture rating will achieve a more casual, rustic effect.
