What’s New with Slate

What’s New with Slate? 2017 Trends: Slate Has it All

It’s been a while since we talked about slate. So what’s new? Well, turns out, there’s a lot.

Natural stone is back on the “trends” list in 2017. As a sustainable, durable, easy-maintenance material, it’s not going anywhere. Sate is definitely trending in 2017 and it looks like this sustainable stone is here to stay. What’s different about 2017 is color. Neutral decor and all-grey homes are a thing of the past, in place of vibrant palettes in each room.

That’s what brings slate to the forefront. There’s no other sustainable, natural stone countertop with so many color options.

Slate comes in unique varieties of mottled purple, red, green, black, grey.

Bathrooms, Countertops, Fireplaces

Slate is one of the most versatile stones you’ll find, suitable for indoors and outdoors in any environment. With InteriorZine’s prediction that slate tiles are going to be one of the most popular materials of the year, slate can either create a tranquil or dynamic mood to any room.

Some of our own favorite applications of slate include fireplaces and – you guessed it! — countertops.
