Rosa Stone slate is a beautiful variety of tones and textures. A blend of cream, pink, brown and purple make it a delicate rosy colored stone that will add an interesting dimension to your new home design. No two tiles are the same with Rosa Stone slate, giving it a characterful charm that is so highly desired from a natural stone.
Slate is formed by changing pressure and temperature conditions imposed on shale or mudstone. These changes cause the originally soft material to harden, forming a sturdy and dense stone. It naturally forms into layers which are easily cleaved into slabs ready for tiles. Slate is known for its durability and is regularly used in locations where harsh conditions are likely to be present, such as on rooftops and other external applications. It is, therefore, suitable for flooring throughout the home, including kitchens, hallways, and bathrooms.
Part of Rosa Stone slate's charm is its unique and varied texture. These tiles have a natural cleft face, allowing its bumps, grooves, and ridges to be displayed in all their glory. This look is achieved when the stone is carved along its layers but left with any natural texture intact. The back of these stones has been gauged flat to allow for level application.
A natural cleft face is ideal for those looking for a mixture functionality and durability, alongside beautiful design. For example, the textured surface provides a level of grip not afforded by some of the smoother tiles on the market. This makes them ideal for flooring throughout the home, but especially for bathrooms, hallways, and outside areas that are more prone to dampness.
It's also an incredibly low maintenance finish, so it's ideal for those with a busy lifestyle. A more refined finish may need upkeep to retain its look, but a natural cleft face is intentionally rugged and non-uniform. A regular clean with a pH neutral cleaner is usually sufficient to maintain the tiles' look.
Rosa Stone slate tiles are ideal for creating a rugged stone effect whilst maintaining a warm and cozy effect. They work best when combined with a natural, or country-inspired interior. For example, pair them with shaker style cream cabinets and a black granite worktop for a simple and classic design.
Alternatively, embrace its natural qualities with a bathroom that incorporates fresh and organic elements. Start with crisp white walls and a Rosa Stone slate backsplash. Add a variety of potted foliage to build the look.
