Bedrosians Tile & Stone is excited to announce an amazing new countertop solution — the Magnifica® Porcelain Collection, which now offers 2cm porcelain slabs – the first ever made in the USA! Fabricators are drawn to this new size because it transports, fabricates, and installs as easy as natural stone and quartz countertops. Designers and homeowners love its stunning beauty, cross-functionality, and supreme durability that surpasses quartz, offering a green product without any resin fillers.
“This is the most durable, cross-functional, and beautiful countertop solution we’ve offered yet,” says Alicia Bedrosian, Magnifica® porcelain product manager, who has installed the Magnifica® in her own home. “I’ve been in the tile and stone industry my entire life and I can hardly tell the difference between natural stone and Magnifica® Porcelain panels. At Bedrosians, we believe Magnifica® is the future of porcelain.”
Fine marble and natural stone surfaces are synonymous with luxury, but maintenance and upkeep require a little or a lot more effort depending on the stone — especially with busy families and active households. However, with Magnifica® Porcelain, Bedrosians offers an amazing compromise that marries the look of stunning natural stone with the easy maintenance of porcelain, delivering high-end looks with all the benefits porcelain tile is famous for!
Magnifica® is large format porcelain, offered in sizes as large as 60” x 127” and as small as 30” x 15” with thicknesses ranging from 2cm to 8mm and 6mm. You can use porcelain the same way natural stone has been used for ages — as beautiful residential and commercial surfaces, indoors and outdoors! The outstanding organic looks are created by taking real stone slabs, scanning them and replicating them on porcelain panels. You get an unparalleled durability from Magnifica® compared to natural stone and quartz. It's a solid surface that’s shock-proof, heat-proof, acid-proof, and of course, spill-proof!
Magnifica® Porcelain is by far the most durable countertop solution Bedrosians offers — it withstands moisture and stains and is resistant to scuffing, scratching, fire and heat. Furthermore, because of its large size, Magnifica® reduces the amount of grout needed for your project, resulting in a seamless and elegant installation, which unlike natural stone. For countertops and shower walls, Bedrosians recommends the 2cm option, which is 127” long by 60” wide. This thicker and larger size offers more surface and handles well with cuts for shower fixtures and sinks. Lightweight and easy to handle, the thinner Magnifica® options can be used not only as countertops, but on floors, walls, cabinet doors, drawer fronts, and fireplace surrounds. With several beautiful finishes to select from—polished, honed, and satin — Magnifica® offers different looks to suit every style for every space.
