Product Info

    When you imagine a beautiful slate tiled floor, it's likely you're thinking of the elegant Midnight Black. Almost totally uniform in color, it is a captivating dark gray. It's the ultimate in traditional slate, a truly versatile stone that is timeless in design and durable in nature.

    Slate is totally hardwearing. It has long been used for roof tiling, a job which requires a hardy stone. It's a great tile for a busy family environment. Its dark color cannot easily be stained, and once the stone is sealed, it is resistant to moisture and scratches.

    Slate is formed under the earth's surface by a combination of low pressure, temperature, and layered mineral deposits. It forms into perfect sheets, which are cleaved into flat tiles that can easily be carved to the ideal shape and size. It's this naturally flat formation which has made it so popular as a tile, and such good value for money.

    Slate is a naturally craggy and jagged rock, a real display of mother nature's harshness. Therefore, it requires a finish that can highlight this quality but is also practical enough for use around the home. This tile has a honed finish, it is ground down to a smooth surface, but the stone's innate matte effect is left. The result is a tile which is soft underfoot, but still retains enough of the stone's natural feel.

    A honed finish is ideal for a lively family home. It has enough traction to prevent slips and trips and is highly durable. It is not a finish that is dulled or deteriorated by heavy use.

    These tiles have a gauged back, making them great for use inside the home. They do have a slight variation in thickness, which only adds to the natural earthy feel that slate suits so perfectly.

    Slate is not only highly practical in terms of its hardwearing nature, but it's also truly versatile. A matte gray slate will suit almost any interior, from the ultra-chic and modern, to that classic country kitchen style.

    It can also be used in an outdoor setting to create earthy and rugged patios and garden walls.
