As a result, we are on top of the newest trends so that our buyers can make their new LBI custom homes spectacular! We are so ready to talk about the latest tile trend for custom homes on Long Beach Island: Porcelain Slab Walls!

What is a Porcelain Slab Wall?

Porcelain is a less porous, durable tile that is manufactured to look like natural stone, like marble. It is a great choice for bathrooms, especially showers, but because it is stain-resistant porcelain tile slabs are also a great choice for kitchens, fireplaces, and just about anywhere in the home you would like a hard surface, even outdoors. Our tile suppliers offer large, roughly 5’ X 10’ slabs of porcelain that our homebuyers have been loving for shower walls, floors, and fireplace walls. This latest tile trend for custom homes on Long Beach Island has so many benefits!

What are the benefits of a Porcelain Slab Wall?

First, because the tiles are so large, there are minimal grout lines. But aside from the aesthetics of this material, there are huge benefits to the homeowner. This water-resistant tile is great for floors in baths and kitchens, as well as walls. It is also much easier to maintain than real marble, as it doesn’t require the ongoing sealing. It cleans easily, especially things like spills, dust, and the porcelain resists staining (don’t worry about spilling your wine on it!). Porcelain slabs are also less complicated than heavy surfaces (like marble) to install, as they are lighter weight and thinner, while offering a strong surface. Our homeowners love the look, feel, and durability of porcelain slab walls, and we think the benefits of this trend will make it a long-lasting one.
