Product Info

    Plum Slate tiles are a beautiful medium gray with a blue-purple undertone. Whilst slate is usually cool-toned, the plum shade warms the stone, making it perfect for creating a homely and inviting feel. The color is fairly consistent throughout the stone. As with any natural material, there can be a slight variation, but the overall effect is uniform.

    Slate is an incredibly versatile material. It has many functions, rather than design focussed, uses because of its hardwearing qualities. For example, it is often used as a roof tile to help protect buildings from harsh weather conditions. But the variety in its color and style means it is also regularly used to add an interesting feature to the home. Therefore, slate is suitable for a variety of applications, including heavy traffic flooring locations such as hallways and kitchens, as well as external uses. It makes a great feature wall tile in bathrooms and kitchens, the perfect backsplash for creating a nature-inspired design.

    Slate is formed by layers of shale and mudstone undergoing changing pressure and temperature conditions. This causes the soft stone to solidify, forming a perfectly layered hard rock. It is the ideal material for creating tiles because it can easily be cleaved along its fault line, creating thin slabs.

    A natural cleft face is the stone's rugged and earthy natural texture. It has fine bumps and grooves that provide a gorgeously rustic look, as well as a great level of traction. This makes the stone ideal for flooring, even in external applications such as porches and patios because it is unlikely to become slippery when wet.

    Furthermore, a natural cleft face is one of our most durable finishes. Unlike a polished surface that will require periodic maintenance to keep its glossy shine, a naturally textured stone is innately dull and imperfect, ideal for those who have a busy lifestyle.

    Plum slate creates a beautiful earthy design that looks great in every location throughout the home. Create a floor to ceiling tiled shower with a sleek glass screen and white walls. Add potted foliage for a nature-inspired design that will feel totally tranquil and relaxed. Alternatively, use it to create a stunning kitchen floor with a modern country look. Pair it with matte shaker style cabinets, a black granite countertop and sleek metallic elements for a luxurious combination of natural elements. This is a stone that can work with almost any design, a truly versatile material.
