Smartstone + Atlas Plan porcelain for panels

The beauty of Atlas Plan’s porcelain surfaces, now available in Australia, is that they are ideal for outdoor spaces including walls, as well as interiors. So, all the vertical panel applications you can think for interiors– porcelain benchtops, splashbacks, sinks, tables and wall panels… – can now be applied to exterior designs as well.

Porcelain splashbacks

Porcelain splashbacks are a popular application for both interiors and outdoor kitchens. Atlas Plan meticulously reproduces the excellence and richness of colours, textures, veining and light effects of natural stone and some of most innovative design materials sought after by architects and interior designers. Atlas Plan’s Natura-Body Tech™ adds extra authenticity to marble-look surfaces in porcelain with through-body veining for continuity of surface, edge and corners.

Porcelain cabinet facades

Being strong yet thin surface material, porcelain slabs and tiles can be used in various vertical panel applications, such as cabinet facades and drawer fronts for a visually uniform look. Atlas Plan porcelain surfaces can also be mitred to create deeper edge profile and waterfall features. Porcelain panels can be placed directly on the existing surface – great news for renovators. Atlas Plan’s Natura-Body Tech™ adds extra authenticity to marble-look surfaces with through-body veining for continuity of surface, edge and corners.

Porcelain wall panels for bathrooms

Porcelain is ideal for wet areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. Porcelain panels are ideal for shower walls, sinks and bathroom vanities as it is compact and non-porous, with an absorption rate of <.5%, perfect for demanding, high traffic areas in residential and commercial spaces.

Porcelain slabs’ large size (nominal size: 1600mm x 3200mm x 12mm) makes them idea for major interior and exterior projects, with limitless application including wall panelling, building facades and even porcelain paving slabs. Atlas Plan’s Australian porcelain collection comprises eight superb surfaces that Smartstone has carefully selected from Atlas Plan’s European range to offer a porcelain collection tailored to local style and tastes.
