Flooring black Slate tiles with a honed surface, 20mm thick.
Black slate with a honed finish has a dark blue gray shade when the surface is dry, it becomes black when wet. We can visually see the grain of the stone, giving it a unique aspect. We can accentuate this dark black appearance with the apparent grain by applying a color enhancing sealer. This type of slate is of a higher quality to the level of hardness, wear and resistance to cracking. A floor of this slate will last decades. If you want a perfectly flat surface it is suggested to use the honed finish.
- For interior , walls and floors we suggest slates 12 mm thick. You can also use the 20, 25 or 40 mm if you want a higher thermal mass, slate accumulates heat either passive or heated floors. It slowly releases its heat for added comfort in the home. The 20 mm is recommended for public areas.
- The honed finish is recommended for kitchen and bathroom countertops
- For the exterior we recommend the natural finish because of its non-skid properties.
