If you are designing a bathroom and looking are for the right tiles to use; slate is a great material to consider. Slate is a excellent type of tile to use for the bathroom if you like the look of natural stone echoed throughout the bathroom. Slate is a natural stone that is now being widely used as tile for patios, floors, and bathrooms. It is becoming an increasingly popular material to use because it is generally a cheaper natural stone material than tiles made of marble or granite.
Like granite and marble, slate is also made in nature and therefore not all slates look the same. Slate ranges in color from almost black, to dark grey, light grey, grey purples, sienna orange, and earthier green shades of grey.
