Homeowners and designers alike all want to tap into the latest, hottest trends. One of the big trends going on today is a new one – and it is changing the way people look at their tiled surfaces.
The trend: large-format, thin porcelain panels. Also called large porcelain panels or thin porcelain panels, these products give you the great look and feel of porcelain tile, but in one large piece instead of a bunch of smaller pieces.
Since the panels are super thin – just a quarter-inch thick – they can be used on walls and other vertical surfaces without having to worry about the unwieldy weight of full-thickness porcelain.
And because of the large size, you can cover a lot of territory with one panel – approximately 50 square feet with the largest panels.
Why Homeowners Love Large Porcelain Panels
Homeowners love these panels because they look great and go very well with any wall surface that is usually tiled, such as your bathroom and your kitchen.
One of the reasons they look great is because they allow for seamless tiling without as much grout. When you see these large panels in place, you get a nice look without nearly as many grout lines.
You can also use these panels to replace heavy and expensive countertops made from quartz or granite. They’re thin, but they’re strong and made to last.
Additionally, you can save money on tearing out your old tile because these thin porcelain panels can go right on top of the old stuff.
They come in a variety of finishes, colors, and styles, and can do anything from replicate the look of stone to provide you with a solid front of color.
Finally, large-format porcelain tiles are durable; they’re spill and scratch resistant, which means cleaning up is a breeze and your fantastic look will last a lot longer.
