Benefits of Porcelain Slabs: Why They Outdo Alternatives

With so many slab options on the market, the choice between porcelain slabs and their alternatives—be it natural stone or engineered surfaces—could make or break your next project.

Classic Ceramics is known for showcasing the unparalleled advantages of porcelain slabs over these alternatives. Not only are porcelain slabs more affordable, less harmful and easier to clean, but they also provide the benefits of being high-quality and made to last. Let’s dive into why opting for porcelain slabs is a wise investment for both commercial and residential projects.

Porcelain slabs can save you money. 

While initial costs may seem on par with alternatives, porcelain’s longevity and low maintenance benefits translate to significant savings in the long run. With fewer replacements and repairs, porcelain proves itself as a cost-effective solution for many years to come.

Minimal silica health concerns.

One concern often associated with alternative slabs like natural stone is silica exposure during fabrication or installation. Porcelain slabs, however, pose minimal health risks. Porcelain sees safer material fabrication methods, eliminating the release of harmful silica dust and ensuring a safer environment for both workers and occupants.

Uniform slab face variations.

Porcelain slabs boast remarkable consistency in their appearance, unlike natural stone which can vary significantly from slab to slab. This uniformity enables designers and architects to achieve precise aesthetic outcomes, ensuring every surface maintains the desired look and feel in a space.

Low porosity.

While natural stone and some engineered surfaces may require sealing to prevent water absorption and staining, porcelain slabs are inherently resistant. If you’re designing a kitchen or bathroom with wet areas, porcelain is ideal for areas prone to moisture exposure.

Clean surfaces without the hassle. 

Simplifying your cleaning routines! The non-porous nature of porcelain slabs repels stains and inhibits the growth of mould and bacteria. Unlike alternatives that may demand regular resealing or specialised cleaning products, porcelain slabs maintain their shine with basic care, saving you extra hours in your day.

Known for exceptional durability. 

Resistant to scratches, chips, and fading, porcelain slabs withstand the rigour of daily use. This durability ensures that spaces retain their elegance and functionality for the long haul, making porcelain slabs an investment in lasting quality.

Porcelain slabs are a sustainable option. 

Crafted from natural materials, porcelain slabs require far less energy to produce compared to alternative surfaces. And because they’re so durable, the longevity of the product minimises the need for replacements. Opting for this choice in your next build reduces waste and environmental impact.

Create a seamless, expansive look. 

With large-format options available, porcelain slabs can visually expand spaces, making them appear larger and more open. See our range of large-format slabs for a transformative feature that elevates the aesthetic of any project.
