Whether used to create focal walls, floors,  backsplashes or countertops, Stile Gauged Porcelain provides the seamless look of continuous natural stone for a fraction of the cost of stone. Unlike natural stone, Stile Gauged Porcelain slabs require no routine maintenance and because of their large formats are installed with minimal grout lines.

Stile Gauged Porcelain slabs are available in 13 colors and come in two sizes 118 in. by 59 in. and 126 in. by 63 in. and weigh 2.81 and 5.8 lbs. per sq. ft. respectively.
