Are you looking for an attractive and durable material to cover your flooring? There are many choices when it comes to flooring, and it helps to have a basic idea about each before making your selection. Stone tiles are a favorite for home décor, both inside and out. A simply breathtaking option is the rustic slate stone.
Slate is a natural stone mined from the earth that consists of small clay and silt particles that have bonded together under high heat. It is extremely durable and resistant to moisture, making it a popular material for front entrances, kitchens, bathrooms, roofs, and sunrooms. It can essentially be used wherever you want to put it!
Slate comes either honed, sanded, or simply left in its natural state. It has a slightly rough surface, which makes it an excellent choice for flooring. Even though a natural rock, it amazingly comes in multiple beautiful colors including reds, browns, blacks, greens, and maroons. It comes in all different shapes, and you can mix and match them in any pattern you like. As you can see by these images, slate can vary greatly in appearance and create multiple stunning patterns.
A Wise Investment
Slate is a very durable material, but you can still protect it with a clear sealant. If you are looking for a classy way to upgrade your home, slate tiles are a material that will last for many years. Instead of other materials that are more prone to wear and tear, investing in slate will be a wise investment.
