Bathroom Trend Update: This One is BIG!

Posted by Emma Weldon on August 16, 2017

At Home Rebuilders, many of our staff members are self-proclaimed “tilephiles.” What does that mean? In short, it means we love tile! We love its versatility, its strength, and its ability to completely transform a space in beautiful ways. Now that the kids are back in school and out of the house a little more often, it’s the perfect time to consider a tile change! The latest tile trend is one that we’ve eagerly hopped on-board with: large-scale porcelain tile. These tile slab sheets offer a chic, European spa vibe that will make you feel instantly relaxed and pampered as soon as you set foot in your bathroom! Aside from its beauty and style, there are a whole bunch of reasons why our design build experts are excited about this trend for bath remodel projects.


To start, large porcelain stone tile slabs are so easy to work with, and they continue to look great over time. They’re typically thin and lightweight, which means they can be installed easily on a shower or bathroom wall, making a huge visual impact without placing a lot of weight stress on your walls and floors. While natural stone is wonderful, its heavy weight can cause your bathroom floor to settle over time, creating an uneven surface – and can cause walls to sag. Lightweight porcelain ensures that your renovations last for years to come, while still providing you with the same aesthetic appeal of natural materials.

Large porcelain tile sheets are also are low-maintenance, minimizing the need for frequent scrubbing and cleaning. Because large slabs mean fewer grout lines, there’s less grout to keep clean. Your bathroom is more likely to look sparkling for a longer period of time, and you won’t have to deal with the hassle of grimy, gross grout. After all, wouldn’t you rather spend your time soaking in your tub than cleaning it?

Worried that your faux finishes won’t look as high-end as their traditional counterparts? Have no fear! Nowadays, manufacturers have become extremely savvy and technologically advanced. As a result, they’re able to offer faux stone and wood finishes that are incredibly realistic, yet engineered to be more durable and long-lasting in your home. These upgraded surfaces will elevate your home design and can even help boost your home’s resale value.
