Using Slate to Create Beautiful Dining Spaces

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Ceramic / Porcelain Tile, Natural Stone

Slate is a popular flooring choice for kitchens, entry ways, and bathrooms. We see slate in these rooms in shelter magazines and on blogs quite a bit. Slate is a durable stone surface that can hold up to heavy traffic. This is exactly why slate can be used to create a beautiful dining space which lasts.

With a myriad of colors, from charcoal grays to bluestone to multi-colored stones swirled with russet tones and grays, slate can be chosen to match most interior color palettes. Crisp white works well with slate as do both cool colors and warm hues. Look at your existing dining room furniture to decide which slate works best for your room. Warmer toned woods, like oak or pine, would work well with slate that has flashes of orange or rust. For a more modern feeling, pair black or white furniture with a blue-grey slate.

Slate can work with many interior design styles. A farmhouse table and Windsor chairs would look great with a slate floor for a charming country dining room. Mission style is a perfect mate for slate. The Arts & Crafts style incorporates natural elements so slate would fit both the aesthetics and the philosophy of this style. Dark slate floors add a natural element to a modern or contemporary dining space.

Chose a coordinating dark grout and the grout lines will almost disappear, giving your floor a uniform look. Or select a lighter grout for a more traditional tile feeling.

Durable and stylish, think about a slate floor for your dining room or eat in kitchen. Take a look at the slate flooring we have available at Century-Tile.com.
