Large Format Cladding Solutions


Large format porcelain was the hot feature product to emerge from Eurocucina 2018 and here at Retreat Design we love the product so much we have clad the walls, door fronts and bench tops in Laminam’s Calce Bianco in one of our new showroom display kitchens!


Laminam also features in the most recent multi residential project we have worked on with Laminam’s Bianco Statuario Venato and Calacatta Oro featuring on the splashbacks for 26 luxury apartments in Mindarie. Laminam is an Italian large format porcelain that comes in 5mm thick sheets of up to 3.2m in length. The product is flat, light, hygienic and scratch resistant.




Another great large format product is the Spanish product, Dekton. Our showroom front kitchen display currently features Dekton’s Laos and Kreta finishes from their industrial collection. Dekton boasts a high tech heating process to make the resulting porcelain extremely strong and heat resistant. We are currently installing Dekton into several Perth homes and have been super impressed with the wide range of finishes available to support any design aesthetic.





Large format porcelain offers a clean and versatile alternative to traditional building products and can be used for internal or external application. Internally, we are seeing large format porcelain used as a benchtop, wall feature, cabinetry door front and even a wet area floor solution. It is used externally to clad surfaces to create interest and a unique design appeal.
