What are porcelain slabs?
Porcelain slabs are super large-format porcelain tiles (panels) that are used to create stunning walls and floors at a fraction of the cost associated with buying and installing natural stone slabs. They are manufactured from the same raw materials used to make porcelain floor tiles.
The most significant difference is the immense size and scale of porcelain slabs. Common sizes include 4’ x 9’ and 5’ x 10’.
The comprehensive variety of marble looks, organic textures, colors and styles includes dynamic florals, jungle scenes, contemporary artworks, sea creatures and coral reefs. There are designs and colors to complement any interior or architectural style.
What are glass slabs?
Glass slabs are similar to large-format porcelain slabs, except they are made of glass. They are used in much the same way that porcelain slabs are used, with one additional feature. Glass slabs can be made in translucent versions - think back lit shower walls, backsplashes, fireplace walls, bar backs and ceilings.
