First, let’s ask: what is gauged porcelain tile?
Gauged porcelain tile is a specially manufactured porcelain tile with extra-large panels/slabs (up to 10 x 15 foot slabs with 6 -12 mm thickness). Because of gauged porcelain’s strength—in a large size and thin depth—these panels/slabs are versatile options for commercial or residential projects from countertops to shower walls to furniture and exterior cladding.
All-White Marble-Look Gauged Porcelain Tile
An all-white, marble-look gauged porcelain tile instantly brightens any room. The large-sized panels used creates a seamless and sleek look with grout lines so delicate it’s nearly impossible to tell where they begin and end. A soft moonstone design with matte finish is the perfect clean and serene look for countertops, backsplashes, and kitchen islands, making smaller spaces look larger than they really are.

Mix & Match With Gauged Porcelain Tile
Your eyes drift toward this hypnotic gray flooring and then up the majestic white walls. Gauged porcelain tiles are amazingly versatile to mix and match their many different colors, designs, and finishes. Taking advantage of their immense tile panel sizes helps retain a continuity of style that is simply impossible with smaller tiles.
Textured Gauged Porcelain Tiles
Textured gauged porcelain tile adds to any room that perfect pop of accent and texture. No matter how subtle or bold the ideas for texture gauged porcelain tile are infinite. The linen/fabric look of the porcelain living room tile above softens a space made for leisure while still benefiting from the health benefits and easy care features of porcelain tile.
Accented Gauged Porcelain Tile
While gauged porcelain tile can best create that enviable seamless look to add glam and expanse to a room, these smooth planes also provide the perfect canvas for a beautifully incorporated accent. A “tile rug” as seen in the dining room above gives the room focus and definition without losing its atmosphere of timeless luxury.
