Commercial flooring needs to be tough. Compared to residential flooring, commercial flooring takes a real pounding. Take a bathroom as a simple example. In a home, the bathroom may be used less than a dozen times a day (depending on the size of the family). In a commercial environment, a bathroom could be used a dozen times an hour, and that’s being conservative. The same is true for kitchens – a residential kitchen receives only a fraction of the traffic that a commercial kitchen receives, and being very busy areas, commercial kitchens are subject to far more spills and accidents.
Bathroom vanities are one of those fixtures in a home that often receives little thought on a day-to-day basis. You may only use that vanity two or three times a day, especially if you are away from the home each day. When you do use your bathroom vanity, it’s often only for a couple of minutes at a time. Whilst bathroom vanities are functional fixtures, they can also set the tone of a bathroom – it’s one of the first things that catches the eye when you enter.
Slate is often associated with the color grey. In fact, slate is a grey color that appears in paint charts at your local paint shop. When it comes to slate floor tiles, grey is a common color, however, it is by no means the only color.
You can find slate in green, yellow, and red hues although the most common is a combination of colors. Grey is generally the base color, however, you will be surprised at the color combinations available. Green with flashes of yellow or red, or grey with flashes of green and red – that combination can look really stunning in kitchens and dining rooms.
