Someone said that porcelain panels are available up to 5m long. Just transporting something that large while keeping it intact takes special skill and materials, as does setting it or cutting. Some of the manufacturers will cut the panels to spec at the factory so you don't have to in the field. They're not cheap, and if you break one, the loss can be considerable unless you can cut what's left and still use parts of it. Depending on the material, it might be cheaper to just use a stone slab, but then, each one will be unique, which may not be the look you want.

SO, depends on what you want, and how much you're willing to pay for it!
