Crossville, Tenn.—Crossville, Inc.’s porcelain tile panel collection is recognized with a: Good housekeeping Renovation price 2022.
“Good Housekeeping has always been a trusted resource for millions of homeowners looking to make their homes more beautiful, functional, safer, and more efficient,” said Lindsey Ann Waldrep, vice president of marketing at Crossville. “We are proud that our collections of porcelain tile panels are recognized with a Good housekeeping 2022 Home Renovation Award and to be included in the incredible quality of the entries.”
According to the company, the porcelain panels are huge, a single 39 x 118 panel can cover more than 32 square feet, resulting in a seamless look thanks to fewer grout lines. But the thickness, measured in just millimeters, gives these tile panels the unique ability to be laid over existing tile or brick surfaces. This feature provides a major advantage for renovation projects as it minimizes the need for demolition and disposal of the old material, reduces labor required, keeps costs low and reduces construction waste.
“Installing porcelain tile panels over existing tiles in eat-in kitchens and baths provides homeowners with a beautiful, modern home renovation option that can be completed quickly thanks to minimal demolition and shorter construction time,” said Waldrep. “The residential uses are endless, creating stunning installations, from kitchen floor updates to shower enclosures and backsplashes to fireplaces.”
Crossville’s thicker panels, offered in two sizes to suit different applications, are 5.6mm and can be installed on walls and floors, while the 3mm tile panels are for vertical use only. The company said this advanced design and panel durability enables the aesthetic and functional use of porcelain tile in previously impossible applications, such as tile-over-tile installations.
