Looking to create a stunning natural finish in your home? Slate effect tiles are the way to go. Used as a building material for many years now, slate has a rough and rugged aesthetic making it a favourite for homeowners that are looking to create either a modern industrial look or a space that is a little more on the rustic side. Being such a popular tile choice and with so many options available, we’ve pulled together everything you need to know about how to create the perfect look in the home with slate effect tiles.
Dark and mysterious, there’s a good reason we’ve always had an affinity with slate effect tiles – they’re incredibly striking. Unlike real slate tiles, which are often processed in varying thicknesses, porcelain or ceramic alternatives are designed to a set depth, making it easier to achieve the perfect finish.
The CTD’s slate effect tiles are an ideal choice if you want to introduce contrast and drama into the home. The overall effect exudes a truly designer statement, however it is also important to make sure you style your interior accordingly to ensure your scheme coordinates nicely. For instance, it’s crucial not to overdo it and make sure you style your space with some softer accessories and colour palettes.
Work Slate Effect Into The Kitchen
A textural slate effect in the kitchen can work particularly well. Our Tiffany collection embraces the split face tile trend and creates a dramatic tonal feature wall thanks to the wonderful variations found across the surface. The textured appeal also creates a sense of depth and interest to interiors thanks to the raised effect of the tile.
We particularly love Tiffany when it’s used as a splashback and paired with country influences, marble worktops and beautiful wood cabinetry in a soft tonal colour palette - the completed look is the perfect rustic kitchen interior with hints of contemporary style.
Slate It Up in the Bathroom
When it comes to your bathroom, there is something truly relaxing about slate, which is why it is often featured in posh spas and luxuriously styled bathrooms. The stone-effect shade exudes comforting properties and where better to use this than in a bathing space?
Our Quarz and Pietra Pienza tiles work nicely within bathrooms thanks to the natural effect of the tile. Typically, it is more common to incorporate a smooth style for this area of the home, as you want to give off a sleek and relaxing appeal. However, the rough look of slate effect tiles can also be used on the walls for a characterful finish.
A truly tranquil aesthetic can be achieved by finishing off the scheme with natural elements, modern basins and hints of greenery for a look that is both trendy and understated – leaving bathrooms completely renewed.
Incorporate Slate into Every Room
A versatile option, slate effect tiles can also be incorporated into dining rooms, hallways and other living spaces around the home. What’s better is that you can now capture this look on the walls and floors of any room in your home thanks to CTD and its low maintenance, equally beautiful alternatives to the real stone itself.
