By nature, slate tiles appear to be raw and organic. There are so many color variations and different patterns in a single piece of slate. This is what makes these tiles so interesting to look at. If you allow your eye to wander, you’ll be surprised at all of the subtleties and details you’ll pick up. They are durable, and above all else, interesting to look at. It’s a great way to provide visual texture in a room with minimal decoration. If you like to keep things simple but you want wall tile or flooring that can also serve as a conversation piece, slates are a worthy choice.
