An exceptional stone flooring option
Slate is a natural stone material that is mostly sourced in quarries in Europe, Asia and the Americas. The area that the slate comes from will determine its characteristics and appearance. The natural stone products supplied at Artmar are all extracted from our own quarries in Turkey. Generally, slate is extracted from stone quarries in large, rough slabs which are then cut into smaller slabs and tiles that are easier to manage. These smaller slate slabs are then exported and processed further to meet clients’ décor requirements.
Slate flooring is resistant to impact and is therefore ideal to apply in areas where a high volume of traffic is expected. It is also a good choice in areas where moisture is expected, such as a bathroom or around a pool, as it is naturally slip resistant.
Slate tiles are available in a variety of finishes, including clefted, which means that the slate is still in its natural state, honed, which is polished but still offers a bit of slate’s natural surface, and polished, which is refined slate that offers a glossy finish.
Best of all, slate tiles require very little maintenance due to it being stain resistant. To clean it and keep it looking brand-new, nothing but a sweep and a mop is required. So, if you are weighing your options for natural stone flooring, slate is a stylish and cost-effective option to consider.
