The Benefits of Large Format Porcelain Tiles

Let’s explore why Porcelain Slabs are our preferred finish.

If you’re planning a bathroom renovation, you may be considering the use of large format porcelain tiles. These tiles, which are as large as 5′ x 10′, have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. In this article, we’ll explore some of the benefits of using large format porcelain tiles in your bathroom.

Fewer Grout Lines

One of the primary benefits of using large format porcelain tiles is that they require fewer grout lines. Grout can be a breeding ground for mold and mildew, so minimizing the amount of grout in your bathroom can make it easier to keep clean and hygienic. With fewer grout lines, your bathroom will have a cleaner, more streamlined appearance that is hard to replicate with standard tile.

Easy Maintenance

Large format porcelain tiles are also easy to maintain. Porcelain is a non-porous material, which means it won’t absorb water or stains. This makes it resistant to scratches, chips, and other damage. Unlike natural stone tiles, which require regular sealing to maintain their appearance, porcelain tiles only need to be swept and mopped periodically.


Porcelain tiles are known for their durability, and large format tiles are no exception. Because they are made from a high-density ceramic material, they can withstand heavy foot traffic and other wear and tear. Additionally, they are resistant to fading, scratches, and stains, making them an ideal choice for a bathroom that sees a lot of use.  These tiles will look brand new, even after years of use.  


Large format porcelain tiles are available in a wide range of colors, textures, and patterns, which makes them a versatile choice for any bathroom design. Whether you prefer a classic look or a modern aesthetic, you can find large format tiles to suit your style.

These slabs can also be used to create custom countertops, shower benches, niches, and almost anything you can imagine.

Timeless Beauty

The classic look of porcelain slabs is unlikely to go out of style. These tiles can create a sleek, modern look or a more traditional, elegant appearance depending on the color, texture, and pattern you choose. This makes them a great investment for homeowners who want a bathroom that will look beautiful  for years to come.

Value for Money

Finally, large format porcelain tiles offer great value for money. While they may be more expensive than smaller tiles upfront, they are likely to last longer and require less maintenance over time. Additionally, they can add value to your home, making them a wise investment in the long run.

 If you’re considering using large format tiles in your bathroom, be sure to speak with a professional installer (such as us!) to ensure that they are installed properly.
