Benefits of Porcelain Slabs
With advanced digital printing technology, Porcelain Slabs are able to demonstrate hyper-realistic look in various design such as marble, stone, metal or cement.
While replicating the appearance of the natural material, modern digital printing is also able to correct or emphasize some of their aesthetic aspects. There is also the possibility and graphical freedom to have varied tones, colours, shades and effects. For example, on large marble effect slabs, the marble veining can be continuous to infinity, something which cannot be obtained with natural marble.
In the Porcelain Slab Collection Onyx&More by Florim, the harmonious equilibrium between elegance and creativity reveals itself in the original and extraordinary combination of two very different stones, onyx & porphyry, which brings refined, welcoming and intimate spaces into being.
2. VISUAL CONTINUITY
Due to its large size, Porcelain Slabs are able to enhance spaces by providing visual respite from distracting grout lines. As a single slab itself covers a large area, less grout space is required in between, making it much easier to achieve continuity in design. Filling the remaining grouts with a colour tone similar to the slabs will result in an even more cohesive appearance.
3. WIDE VARIETY OF USES
As Porcelain Slabs are able to offer a wide variety of uses, they are also able to offer a large number of innovative ideas regarding design. Other than floors, porcelain slabs can also be used to clad walls, cabinetry, furniture and other surfaces to extend its style and durability.
4. EASY MAINTENANCE
Porcelain slabs are stain resistant, heat resistant and water resistant. For routine care, porcelain slabs can be cleaned easily with just a soft cloth and warm water.
Also, with lesser grout lines, there are fewer areas where dirt can accumulate. Grout is also prone to discoloration and deterioration over time. Large porcelain slabs thus provide faster and easier cleaning.
