20mm (2cm) porcelain slab countertops
I’ve read many discussions on the sintered stone (Neolith) & porcelain slabs for countertops & done a lot of research on the countless brands that offer a porcelain & have concluded that the success is usually contingent upon an experienced fabricator & installer & the “finish” option chosen for durability w shiny/polished being more problematic for high traffic kitchens.
What I can’t find much on, is the fact some of these brands are now offering a 20mm (2cm) thickness. I’m curious if anyone has installed or worked with this thickness and can weigh in on if it’s a better choice than a 12mm for a kitchen. Still staying away from a polished finish, & still choosing a fabricator whose worked with it, are there advantages to going 20mm? Or is it just a vanity thing? Especially if I’d still miter the edges for a “thicker” look...anyone have any insight?
