While granite and marble will always be around, ceramic slabs are looking better every day.
Ceramics of Italy provides large format slabs, up to 5.25 x 10.5 feet.
These ceramic countertops offer several advantages: they're thinner/lighter (thus easier to install), extraction is less intensive, and they're easy to recycle.
They also may be sourced from many different varieties of stone, including Basalt, Obsidian and Travertine, thus offering variability in color and design—for a unique appearance and appealing texture.
They're also naturally hygienic and quite durable, resistant to stains and scratches.
