Avorio Onyx is a stunning gemstone with semi-translucent properties that make it ideal for backlit worktop and wall applications. The warm veining meanders through pale gold and ivory colours, creating a play of light and shade that is simply captivating.
This unique material showcases an interplay of colours and patterns that differ from one slab to another, thereby offering a stunning palette of possibilities for designers and architects.
Unlike the uniform appearance of other available surface materials, the Ivory Onyx is characterised by its unique, swirling patterns, providing every surface with a distinct and sophisticated identity.
Avorio Onyx: A Cut Above in Performance Features
The creamy-coloured Onyx offers much more than aesthetic appeal. With its inherent strength, robustness, and lasting property, this gemstone offers a practical solution for various applications.
From worktops to bathroom wall applications, the sturdy nature of this stone ensures it withstands heavy usage while maintaining its original charm over the years. It is heat resistant and ideal for culinary settings and environments with fluctuating temperatures. Its resilience and low porosity negate the chance of absorbing spills, thus making maintenance a breeze.
Given that Avorio is a natural stone, it retains its appeal and functionality over time, showing minimal signs of ageing and wear. This longevity, coupled with minimal upkeep requirements, makes it a cost-effective choice that provides exceptional value for money in the long run.
Blanketing the Benefits Over Other Materials
Avorio Onyx stands taller among its counterparts for several compelling reasons. Versus materials like marble and granite, Onyx provokes a sense of luxury and luminosity that others can’t quite replicate.
Its fascinating depth and translucence bring an aura of exclusivity and elegance, often sought after in up-scale spaces. While granite and marble showcase visible grains and seams, Onyx glorifies them in seamless presentation and striking patterns.
Quartz vs Onyx
Compared to quartz, Onyx offers a superior level of uniqueness in its pattern, which quartz, being engineered, can’t match. Moreover, the innate warmth and natural feel of Avioro Onyx trump the cold and industrial aesthetic that quartz usually imparts. Quartz may offer more thicknesses, finishes and patterns, but it will never replicate Ivory Onyx’s natural veins.
Therefore, Avorio emerges as a distinct contender, offering not only unparalleled beauty but also robustness and practicality when compared to marble, granite, and quartz. It is a compelling choice for those who value authenticity, elegance, and functionality equally.
A Superior and Striking Natural Stone Surface for Your Home
Avorio is a stunning natural stone surface that not only adds grandeur to any space but also requires minimal maintenance. Maintaining Avorio stone is relatively easy, making it a practical choice for homeowners who desire a beautiful yet low-maintenance surface.
For those who appreciate the timeless aesthetics of natural stone, Avorio Onyx offers a beautiful choice. This unique surface is renowned for its fascinating patterns and colour spectrum that captivates at first glance.
Avorio Onyx surfaces are characterised mainly by a creamy white or ivory base with sinuous waves of brown and golden hues scattered throughout, creating an elegant and dominant feature.
Every slab is a new design canvas, offering a unique look as no two slabs of Avorio are alike. The diverse and distinct patterns and hues in each slab create a captivating visual appeal.
As striking as its aesthetics are, Avorio is equally remarkable in functionality. Noted for its durability, this natural stone surface can withstand the test of time with grace. One of its defining performance features is its surprising resistance to heat. Naturally designed to resist high temperatures, it is an excellent choice for kitchen worktops, bathroom surfaces, and fireplace surrounds.
Furthermore, Onyx Avorio is incredibly easy to clean and maintain, significantly simplifying the upkeep of your surfaces.
