Porcelain. It seems to be the word on every designer and renovator’s lips right now. The finest quality porcelain is made in Italy, where it’s called porcellana (pronounced porch-elana). And while the Italian word gently rolls off the tongue, there’s nothing soft about this virtually indestructible surface material.

Porcelain has been a hugely popular material globally for the past few years, particularly in Europe, seen in many award-winning indoor and outdoor designs, from dream kitchen benchtops to idyllic poolside patios. Italy’s Atlas Plan has been at the forefront of the European porcelain surface trend, renowned for its sophisticated and innovative replications of marble and natural stone-look surfaces. An Atlas Plan Collection has now been curated for the Australian market, tailored to local style and tastes.

Atlas Plan’s recent arrival in Australia quickly boosted porcelain’s popularity locally, and it’s already become an in-demand material among architects, interior designers and homeowners here. Interestingly, the design approach to Atlas Plan porcelain in local recent architectural projects has shown a strong direction of using porcelain surfaces on many applications throughout a home, indoors and out, well beyond just kitchen benchtops.

For those not familiar with porcelain, we answer some of the most often asked questions to help you get on top of this major trend.
