Durable, beautiful and low-maintenance, it’s no wonder that slate tiles have evolved from a centuries-old building material to a timeless choice for interiors. Whether used as part of a cool and moody scheme, or to lend your space a rustic edge, slate is both impactful and highly practical. Low water absorption, alongside a textured, high grip finish, makes this stunning natural stone an ideal material for bathroom tiles, as well as outdoor flooring. The versatility of slate tiles mean that they’ll work as well in an industrial or urban interior as they do in a rustic cottage kitchen.
When choosing your slate floor or wall tiles, consider whether you’re trying to add an organic feel to an otherwise polished interior, or if you’re hoping to amplify the qualities of a more relaxed or rugged space. If it’s the former, then laying rectangular slate tiles in a herringbone pattern might an elegant way to bring this striking stone into your space. Alternatively, a flagstone format nods to timeless country interiors and will add instant character to any room in the house.
We love to see slate applied as kitchen work surfaces too: our Brazilian Nero Riven slate slab makes a stylish and functional worktop and sits comfortably with a wealth of other natural stone or stone effect tiles in our collection. Our in-house team of consultants and expert stone masons means that we can produce a huge array of designs in stone, whether you need a cut out for your sink or hob, or shelves to complement your material palette.
If you’re on the hunt for hardy flooring for the garden, then slate outdoor tiles are an ideal choice. You can choose to seal them, or leave them unsealed to allow them to weather beautifully over time, and with exposure to the elements. Our slate tiles are available in two different thicknesses, which allows them to be laid both indoors and out. This means you can create a seamless transition between your interior and exterior spaces, which helps to enhance the connection between home and garden. Alternatively, use this rich, dark stone to zone or highlight an area amidst grass, planting or other hard landscaping.
