Formed of compressed layers of sediments formed under the ocean, slate tile countertops strike a balance of being both the functional workhorse and the eye-catching centerpiece of modern-day kitchens and bathrooms. Slate’s tough composition makes it resistant to fading, scratches, and even chemicals. While it needs to be sealed regularly, slate tiles last virtually forever with little maintenance. The vibrant colors and texture makes slate tile an outstanding interior flooring alternative. With over 25 color options to choose from, slate tile can make a perfect addition to any room — even those in colder climates.
While slate kitchen countertops’ subtle coloration shifts may be less bold than marble or granite, they offer a distinct, nearly minimalist appearance that makes it easy to achieve dramatic uniformity. Appealing shades of charcoal, gray, pewter, brown, and black are hallmarks of slate tile kitchen countertops — but highlights of green, blue, and red may also be present.
However, unlike marble or granite, slate is nonporous. This means it’s exceptionally low-maintenance as far as cleaning and upkeep go, and it doesn’t tend to harbor bacteria — key considerations when you’re thinking about materials ideal for your kitchen. Since it won’t absorb liquids, you won’t have to worry about staining from food or household cleaning products. Additionally, its durability will stand up to the accidental drops, bumps, and clangs — slate doesn’t easily chip or scratch, and it stands its own against heat.
