Porcelain countertops are making a tremendous comeback, but not in any way that you’ve seen them before.
It is like they entered a phone booth and reemerged as amazing superheroes!
Porcelain Slab Creative Uses
The way porcelain is applied to a counter is nothing short of amazing. Porcelain countertops can be manufactured and sized to fit perfectly into your kitchen. Porcelain slabs can be made to look like granite, marble, wood, linen, or just about any other natural material you could desire. However, with none of the maintenance issues or usage restrictions – that’s amazing!
Porcelain slab surfaces are nonporous. Therefore they are a safe and healthy option for food preparation. Porcelain is also heat tolerant. A significant and fundamental factor related to porcelain slabs is that you can use them everywhere. Porcelain surfaces are ideal for kitchens and bathrooms as they are stain, heat, and water-resistant.
Now, imagine this.
If you’re opting for a marble look – which is one of the most popular porcelain styles in use for both kitchens and bathrooms right now – you will be able to continue a vein across a wide wall or cabinet bank. You can also create book-matched slabs for a very stylish and upscale look. Amazing!
Porcelain slabs are flexible and versatile. Consider these ideas.
- An entire island that uses porcelain slabs on all sides creates an almost monolithic look
- A complete spa-like bathroom where walls, floors, and an integrated tub were all designed with large format slabs
- Your dining tabletops made with one single porcelain slab
Some Final Thoughts
You can clad walls, cabinetry, furniture, and other surfaces with porcelain to extend the look and feel of the porcelain slab. This gives you options to blend it into adjacent areas.
You can also create an integral sink, which many designers are doing in kitchens and bathrooms for the very cool look and ease of use.
The modern porcelain surface look is fantastic. Moreover, porcelain is also low maintenance, and for a homeowner, this is always appreciated. Gone are the days of cleaning grout with a toothbrush. You will probably agree that porcelain slab surfaces are quite simply amazing!
Below is just a small sample of the amazing beauty of porcelain.
