Denver Natural Stone: Consider Slate In and Around Your Home


December 3, 2019

If you’re in the market for an interior makeover or looking to add a splash of color into your living room or another area of your home, then consider giving slate a try. While many homeowners are quick to pinpoint certain materials based solely on friendly recommendations or the most current trends in interior design, there is one natural stone surface that has been used for decades that offers a unique look but is extremely durable and may just be what you need.

While many people are familiar with slate roofing tiles, the benefits of utilizing this material also extend into the home. Offering a solution for areas which may receive a heavy amount of traffic or even an accent wall within a space, installing slate tiles can not only enhance the value of your property but also add a sense of design style and flair when used correctly. Consider these non-traditional but rising in popularity merits for slate in and around your home.

Flooring

A great choice for high traffic areas or places prone to contact with water (i.e. kitchens and bathrooms), slate flooring offers extreme durability while showing little to no signs of wear and tear. Also a great option for an entranceway that may be exposed to the elements - dirt, snow, ice, mud, and other outside materials - at times, slate is easy to clean and often darker in color so any dirt and debris won’t show.

Walls

Feel free to install slate as an accent wall within a given space or inside the bathroom. Surrounding tubs or even constructed as a shower wall, slate can transform your master bathroom while giving it a spa feeling that many homeowners desire. 

Fireplace

Similar to the accent wall, slate can also be used around a fireplace to give it a unique and modern look. Instead of old-fashioned brick casings, upgrading to a slate hearth can totally change the look and feel of a room.

Pavers

Outside the home, slate pavers can be used for a patio, walkway, stepping stones, or driveway. These materials are extremely durable and can withstand much of what Mother Nature has to offer while being exposed but also ready to accommodate friends and family gathering for a good time in a functional space.
