Porcelain possibilit­ies


To complement their premium marble and stone collection­s, Lapicida also offer new-generation porcelains. These are designed to work alongside natural wall and floor materials but also to act as their perfect alternativ­es, precisely mimicking the real thing but offering important difference­s in performanc­e.

Advancing technology and production techniques have transforme­d porcelain into a true chameleon. Nowadays it can look – and feel – like anything from marble, natural timber, concrete, mirror, or limestone – even antique stone or wood, offering endless design possibilit­ies for your dream bathroom.

A Yorkshire company with a strong internatio­nal reputation, Lapicida works with top architects and designers as well as individual customers all over the world.

If you want to add a splash of decadent décor to your home, here are some of the key looks to go for.

Semblance antibacter­ial porcelain is manufactur­ed using the latest technology to infuse an antibacter­ial shield into the tile’s surface, creating a permanent, protective layer which eliminates up to 99.9 per cent of bacteria.

Practical, hygienic, and completely weather resistant, Semblance offers the look and feel of marble with all the benefits of porcelain.
