About Slate Tile
Slate stone is a finely grained metamorphic rock that is taken from the sides of mountains in Europe, Asia, and the America’s. Each region produces different chemical constituents that determine the particular formation and feature of each slate. This tile gets its name from its formation in plains, sheets resting on top of one another, creating a formidable bond once compressed under great pressure. While exotic slate tile is more expensive to the consumer due to transportation fees, this gorgeous material is also domestic to us, therefore, easy to obtain and at an affordable price.
Best Areas & Design
This tile has the ability to speak sophistication in a subtle way through its naturally elegant appearance. The beauty of slate is that each tile has a variation of hues and tones and to a different degree. Many slates will have a range of colors on the surface, creating a canvas for the buyer to paint a flooring with either complimentary or contrasting hues. Depending on your personal taste and the type of slate, your tile can be as eye catching or as muted as you please.
