As porcelain tile panels continue to generate buzz for their durability, high-end look and versatility, industry leader Crossville is offering up refined options for designers and homeowners looking to achieve maximum impact with minimal effort.
Crossville’s porcelain tile panels are the perfect way to introduce elegance and grandeur to an otherwise blank slate. Ideal for covering expansive surface areas, these large-format panels are an impressive 3.3 by 9.84 feet in size.
Despite their magnificent proportions, the panels are impressively thin with a profile of only 3 to 5 millimeters. The sizing allows for easy installation—even directly over preexisting tile or stone for an instant upgrade. Because the product is thin, each panel can be custom cut to fit the shape, size and curvature of unique installations.
The Tennessee-based company turned to Northern Italy’s Apuan Alps for inspiration in designing its latest collections. Ultimately, it was Pietra del Cardoso—a rich blue-grey sandstone with delicate white veining, mined exclusively in this mountain range—that served as Crossville’s muse.
The result: two colorways that breathe luxury into any space. Pietra-Di-Cardoso Grigio, a stately gray tone, and Pietra-Di-Cardoso Nero, a nuanced black, are durable enough to work on any surface yet stunning enough to be a natural focal point. Both are available in a matte or flamed finish, which grants a smooth sheen to the final product.
Perhaps the most promising aspect of porcelain tile panels is their versatility. They can act as a façade, skinning the exterior of buildings, or a as a sleek surface, lining the floors, walls, ceilings and countertops of interiors. The porcelain panels are also highly scratch-proof, suitable for any weather condition, easy to clean, and sustainable.
“With complementary hues and authentic texture, our collections give designers a contemporary solution for skinning walls and flooring,” says Lindsey Waldrep, Crossville’s vice president of marketing.For more information, please visit crossvilleinc.com.
