5 reasons to choose solid slate worktops for an ageless look in any kitchen

Slate worktops can add a timeless beauty to your kitchen, as they are versatile enough to look great with any style of décor. Because of this, they have long been a popular choice for bathroom tiles, hallways floors and of course kitchen countertops – and it doesn’t look like that will be changing anytime soon.
  1. Its natural beauty

The natural beauty of solid slate makes it a stand-out choice for sleek and striking kitchen worktops. Slate can be found both in the classic smooth black colour, or with unique-looking patterns and grains if you prefer something more decorative and individual. Whichever style you choose, we can guarantee that the attractive texture of slate will add a clean and stylish look to your kitchen.
  1. It’s low maintenance

The fact that slate is non-porous gives it the edge over wood or marble, both of which can be stained or damaged by spilt liquids. Slate is therefore easier to clean and requires less maintenance, making it an excellent choice for busy people.
  1. It’s hard-wearing

Solid slate is naturally strong and durable, meaning you won’t have to worry about cracks, scratches or chips accumulating over time. Slate is also heat-resistant so hot pans won’t leave marks on your worktop, and your kitchen will remain in top condition for many years, making it an excellent investment.
  1. It’s the more affordable choice

Slate worktops bring a similar monochrome look to that of granite and marble, but are a more affordable option. Choosing slate therefore gives you more freedom to choose the style that’s right for you, and leaves more budget to design and decorate the rest of your kitchen if you wish to.
  1. It creates a consistent look to your home

One of the benefits of choosing slate for your worktops is how versatile it is. It can be used as flooring or for wall tiles to really bring your home together and create consistency.
