This contemporary slate tile is perfect for creating an interior that balances natural materials with a sleek design. It has a classic slate gray coloring with slightly green undertones. Each tile has its own unique shade and subtle pattern, meaning that no two tiles will ever be identical. Despite this variation, the overall effect is a consistent pattern that creates a smooth, monochrome surface.
Created by pressure and temperature changes altering the qualities of shale and mudstone, slate is an incredibly dense stone. It forms naturally into layers which are easily carved into slabs of rock ready for use as a tile.
Slate is one of the most durable stones available. It has a long history as roof tiles and other functional uses which require a hardy stone. Therefore, is more than capable of resisting the heavy wear and tear it may face in a busy family environment and is suitable for even the most high-traffic locations throughout the home. For this reason, it makes great flooring in kitchens, bathrooms, and hallways, as well as being suitable for cladding, backsplashes, and other household features.
Creating the ultimate contemporary design, this slate has a polished finish. The stone has been ground down until it is completely level, removing any bumps and ridges. It is buffed to refine the surface further, creating a sleek and beautifully smooth texture.
Unlike a granite or marble, slate will not polish to a mirror shine, but there is something satisfying about the satin-like texture that the buffing creates. If you're looking for an understated but totally on-trend stone that offers great value for money, while still creating a high-end look, this Green Shine polished slate is ideal.

It's naturally muted surface cannot be dulled by heavy use, making it ideal for high traffic areas. Some stones are prone to scratches and stains, but a polished slate is sufficiently durable to resist these imperfections.
