Rock The Block: Episode 3

Large-Format Porcelain Speaks for Itself

As we enter Rock the Block Season 4, Episode 3, the competition is turning up on who can add the most value to the Landmark Homes. The four teams were tasked to renovate the main suite, bathroom, and closet. This week’s judges competed in last season’s Rock the Block, Lyndsay Lamb and Leslie Davis from Unsellable Houses. However, this episode is blind judging, meaning the judges won’t know which house belongs to who. With blind judging, every detail must speak for itself. The designers are unable to explain their thought-process after styling the rooms.    

Last week, Page and Mitch wowed the judges with their floor-to-ceiling large-format porcelain alongside their custom bookshelf, taking home the winning title. This week, the duo used large-format porcelain for their floor-to-ceiling shower and their vanity sink. Page and Mitch differentiated themselves by installing a grand fireplace covered in porcelain, right next to the bathtub.

Episode three proves that the versatility of large-format porcelain is endless. For Anthony and Michel’s home, their entire bathroom was covered in large-format porcelain. In their main bath, Moderno Porcelain Works fabricated and installed Levantina’s large-format porcelain on the wall, the floor-to-ceiling shower in a book matched pattern, floors, double vanity, followed by the closet’s countertop with leftover porcelain. They also used the same porcelain, cut to smaller tiles, for the shower floors. Michel and Anthony took home the winning title for this week’s challenge, along with an extra $3,000 to use toward next week’s remodel. Michel and Anthony maximized the usage of large-format porcelain to their advantage. Even Michel said, “Porcelain is currency cause it’s good and worth every dollar.”

Clean Less with Porcelain

It’s no surprise that Michel and Anthony and Page and Mitch incorporated large-format porcelain into their bathroom design. Its durability, ease of maintenance, and wide range of design options make it a material that can add both beauty and functionality to not only the bathroom but almost anywhere in your home.

Porcelain is a non-porous material meaning it does not absorb moisture and is inhospitable to bacteria. This makes it an excellent choice for surfaces frequently exposed to water and moisture, such as bathroom showers and vanities. Porcelain is also easy to clean and can be wiped down with a damp cloth, but it can also withstand harsh chemicals typically used to clean a bathroom. Large-format porcelains offer fewer seams and grout lines which means less back-breaking scrubbing in the shower. It’s the best option for homeowners who don’t have the time or energy to devote to extensive cleaning. Get the luxurious look and feel, but without maintenance.
