Slate tiles have the durability and ease of maintenance that home owners want and they also have wide design and colour choice which enables them to fit in compliment many design choices. Slate floor tiles have a rough surface which gives them a real natural look and feel, they are slip resistant which makes them ideal for busy areas of the home such as the kitchen area.
The fantastic aspect of slate floor tiles is that no two tiles are exactly the same; they have their own unique characteristics which make them unique and individual giving a complete natural feel to the interior.
There are many colour variations in slate floor tiles and home owners will find it very easy to find a colour variation that suits the existing decor in the kitchen. Slate floor tiles are often available in black, white, green, gold, red, gray and brown. These real earthy shades create a real warm feel in the home and because slate floor tiles are often darker shaded, they will not easily show up marks which naturally occur in busy areas.
If slate floor tiles are installed within a kitchen area, the rest of the kitchen does not have to stay with the consistent traditional earthy feel because slate tiles combine very well with other more modern looking tiles such as glass tiles. The colour in the glass tiles and their bright shiny appearance is a complimented contrast to the slate floor tiles and works incredibly well. Likewise slate floor tiles work well with ceramic wall tiles and porcelain wall tiles which give home owners a wide selection when choosing tile materials.
Slate floor tiles are reasonably priced and by shopping around home owners can get some really great deals. This ensures that home owners have the functionality, durability and great design at affordable prices which is important.
When floor tiles are installed in busy areas of the home, they are more susceptible to becoming damaged and broken, this happens as a natural occurrence of day to day living but slate floor tiles are easily replaced without disrupting the whole floor area.
Home owners have quite a task when choosing floor tiles and they have lots of aspects to consider. They have the design and colour combinations, the functionality of the floor tile and they have to be forward thinking in terms of maintenance and longevity. Slate floor tiles offer all of the above and are easy to clean and maintain ensuring your floor tiles stay looking good without too much intervention. Always take the time to look at what is on offer and don’t be afraid to try some samples before making your choice on floor tiles.
