Have you heard the buzz? Believe me, in this industry, there’s always something going on, but this? This we need to talk about.
Porcelain tile panels are creating quite a stir in the tile industry lately. Why? Because designers and installers are learning more about the benefits of tile-over-tile installations. Tile-over-tile, you ask? Yes, and it gets better. Crossville has entered the conversation.
America’s leading manufacturer of porcelain tile is touting the benefits of tile-over-tile installations with their porcelain tiles for some considerable reasons:
+ No demolition
+ No disruption
+ Eliminates environmental, health, and sound contamination
+ Avoids abatement
+ Up to 95% grout reduction
+ Faster room turnover
+ Modern, clean aesthetic
Right? This caught our attention, too.
“If you’re looking to modernize an existing space with less mess, noise, and downtime, tile-over-tile is the perfect solution,” says Crossville’s Leslie Baker.
“Crossville’s mission has always been to provide the market with high-quality, responsibly manufactured porcelain tile that is rooted in technical mastery, designed for long-term function, and finished with style and beauty.”

With downtime and maintenance as top concerns, especially in hospitality, healthcare, and multi-family projects, Crossville’s porcelain tile panels can transform a tired space into something rejuvenated, and something that will stand the test of time. And they’re serious about the longevity of their products. The company’s mission, since its inception in 1986, is to provide the industry with creative and sustainable solutions.

It’s the larger size of Crossville’s tile, combined with the thinner profile, that makes the tile-over-tile installations even more possible than before. And without the need for demolition, clients have reduced labor costs.
Crossville’s porcelain panels are huge — a single 1 x 3-meter panel can cover more than 32 square feet, resulting in a seamless look thanks to fewer grout lines.
“From refreshing public spaces like lobbies, elevator corridors, and restrooms, to a quick shower update in a home, the form and function of porcelain panels are extremely versatile.”
