Versatile slate tile
Slate tile is known to be applicable in interior spaces like entranceways, halls, kitchens, and bathrooms. Some even install slate tile in living areas. But, slate has been a popular choice in exterior locations, too. In moderate climates, slate has been a decorative and practical addition as exterior cladding, patios, paths, verandas, and beyond.
The story of slate tile
Slate is what is known as a metamorphic rock, made up sundry materials often found in coastal regions; clay, silt, mica, and any number of other elements. It’s the combination of these elements that affects the distinguishing patterns and colors in the slate bed, randomly collected by movements of water, then pressurized, and heated over time to create what we can identify as one of the most admired natural stone materials there is.
The earthy tonal spectrums of slate are often shot through with magnificent bursts of color. This is what creates the contrasting natural patterns that are distinct in slate tile, and why slate tile is so sought-after; it’s an example of supreme artistry in nature, with a long history to fit into one you can call your own.
