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.
It’s the color combinations, the flashes and swirls of color, that really gives slate tiles a unique look. Of all the natural stone tiles, slate is the hardest to replicate so you’ll be hard pressed to find a ceramic or porcelain floor tile that imitates this look. When considering floor tiles, don’t be too quick to brush aside slate – it looks stunning when installed in the right areas, is hard wearing, naturally anti-slip and water-resistant, and can easily handle temperature variations. Those factors also make slate floor tiles a good choice for outdoor tiled flooring.
