Slate is a fine-grained metamorphic rock that can be formed from shale. Part of its popularity stems from the fact that it is so well-suited to both interior and exterior flooring projects.
Its ability to deal with extreme temperatures means that slate is commonly used for flooring, roofing and is resistant against exposure to sun. Slate floors offer a natural non-slip surface which has unequivocally propelled its use in kitchens, bathrooms and other similar areas of the home.
Slate floor tiles are easily recognisable and have a natural and rustic appearance. Slate tiles tend to be grey in colour but multi-coloured slate is also available.
