This is the most durable, cross-functional, and beautiful countertop solution we’ve offered yet,” says Alicia Bedrosian, Magnifica® Porcelain Product Manager and someone 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, we offer 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! Watch this video to learn why this product is a wise choice for families.

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!

ABUNDANT CHOICES
14 Colors, 3 Finishes

Magnifica® Porcelain delivers colors and veining straight from the quarry, capturing the realism of marbles, volcanic basalt, industrial concrete, and solid looks. Depending on your choice, the panels are available in polished, satin and honed finishes.

The Extensive Benefits of Magnifica® Porcelain

Low maintenance and easy to clean
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.

Varied sizes, profiles and finishes work for different surfaces
For countertops and shower walls, we recommend 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® Porcelain offers different looks to suit every style for every space.

Lightweight and sustainable
Weighing a fraction of traditional stone slabs, the thin 6mm and 8mm panels are just as durable and can be installed over existing surfaces, thus saving valuable construction time, costs, and landfill waste! It's so lightweight, designers use it in yachts, on elevator walls, as cabinet and drawer fronts in kitchens and bathrooms, and as furniture like dining and coffee tables. Magnifica® Porcelain is produced in a state-of-the-art facility with a sustainable, green, environmentally friendly process that reduces, reuses, and recycles allowing you to feel even better about your purchase!

Easy to transport, fabricate and install
The new 2cm thickness handles and cuts the same as natural stone and quartz, making it a great product for fabricators to work with.

Fabrication is easy

"As a fabricator, I definitely enjoy working with porcelain slabs — they are very easy to work with! And customers love the beauty and easy maintenance," says Tom Cotton of Perry Masonry, who has worked with porcelain slabs for several years.
