Discover our Porcelain Slabs Tiles
Porcelain stoneware is made from a mix of natural clay and other minerals fired at extremely high temperatures to create a durable surface that is resistant to stains and scratches.
The Casalgrande Padana Kontinua, range of porcelain slabs, is an innovative range of high-performance, Italian-made porcelain slabs. Designed to be both aesthetically pleasing and highly durable, making them perfect for use in a variety of commercial and residential applications. Their porcelain slabs are available in a variety of sizes, finishes, and colors, allowing for a vast range of design possibilities.
The porcelain material by Casalgrande Padana can be cut and drilled for bespoke and personalized applications. They lend themselves well to the areas of furniture and interior design, including made-to-measure pieces such as kitchen benchtops, bathroom surfaces, tables, furniture tops, wardrobes, and dividing walls, opening up a world of possibilities for designers.
Just like granite or other natural stone products, a variety of edges including bevel, bullnose, mitred and waterfall edge can all be achieved with porcelain material. This mitred edge is ideal for finishing kitchen benchtops whereby the slab is cut at a 45-degree angle to create a seamless, jointless finish.
The waterfall edge creates a continuous line from the benchtop to the floor and is often used to create a statement in the kitchen. The 12mm porcelain material can be cut at a 90-degree angle to create the waterfall effect.
Bookmatch Slab Tiles
Best displayed in the heavily marble patterned slabs, the book-match technique is often used to create a seamless feature wall. An example of book matching can be seen here with two Marmoker Calacutta Oro slabs placed side-by-side, creating a mirror image of the other. Casalgrande Padana Kontinua Range of porcelain slabs offers a beautiful selection of marble look patterns including book-match options.
Environmentally Friendly Porcelain Tiles
In addition to its decorative and practical benefits, porcelain slabs also make a great environmental choice. Thankfully, porcelain material is also a much safer option for those looking for a durable and attractive surface.
Porcelain material does not contain the same levels of crystalline silica as engineered stone. As a result, porcelain is much safer to work with during the fabrication process. It also requires less energy for production and installation than other materials, making it a more sustainable option.
Easy to maintain slab tiles
Porcelain slabs are also very easy to maintain. The material is highly resistant to water fading and discoloration, making them a great choice for areas exposed to the sun.
For all these reasons, it’s no wonder why porcelain slabs are becoming the latest trend for interior design. They offer both practical benefits and aesthetic appeal, making them the perfect choice for any home.
