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.
