About Slate Tile
Slate is a thin-grained metamorphic rock that is extracted from mountainsides in Europe, Asia, as well as the Americas. Each region produces a different chemical composition that determines the distinct formation and feature of each slate. The name derives from its unique formation in plain sheets resting like layers of a cake, that create a formidable bond once compressed under significant pressure. Exotic slate tile has a heftier price tag; however, this gorgeous medium is also harvested in the states, making this local selection easy to obtain and at a respectable price.
Areas & Design
Slate speaks sophistication in a subtle way. The raw beauty of slate comes from its variation of hues and tones that are available in busy and subtle patterns. Many slate tiles will feature a multifaceted combination of colors on the surface, creating a canvas for the buyer to paint a room’s scenery with either complementary or contrasting designs. Depending on your personal taste and the type of slate, your tile can be as eye-popping or as muted as you wish.
Slate tile is ideal for those needing minimum maintenance. Like any flooring, slate requires a regular cleaning regimen to guarantee success and security of your floor. Your tiles will remain intact and avoid tiny blemish from appearing over time by implementing small chores, such as sweeping and dry mopping, tending to spills as quickly as they occur, into your daily rhythm. To further prevent damages from happening, we encourage the periodical application of a stone-sealing agent for additional peace of mind.
