Hi! These floors were existing before we took over for the showhouse. I believe they are 12" x 12" in size and are black and white marble.

Christy, are you sure those are marble and not either granite or porcelain? The reason I ask is I can't see the marbling in the photo and can't find SOLID marble (which is, as you might expect from its name, marbled) ... Sounds like it was an existing floor?

That is correct that you cannot see the veining in the photograph but I stood in this space for about 2 months and it is definite marble.

Yes, it was an existing floor and not sure if original to the home which was built around the 1930s.

Rwilson--not sure why you can't find solid-colored black and white marble! It's been a classic for thousands of years! Nero marquino (black) and thassos (white) are both solid and beautiful, and I'm sure there are others.

Most likely this is Thassos white marble and Absolute black granite. I'm currently putting this in my home, and have been told this is what everyone uses. Solid black marble tiles are hard to find! In fact, I'm not sure there actually is a solid black marble. I have looked and can't find it. Nero Marquino black marble has a lot of white veining in it, and the veining is very visible!
