New Orleans Tile

Styling Options of Slate Tile

  • Slate tile is available in a large assortment of sizes and finishes.
  • It adds a natural, rugged beauty to your home. The majority of color options range from light to dark gray, although it is not unusual to see veining and other color markings in orange, red, purple, and green.
  • Grout color can be customized to match or contrast with your choice of tile and other flooring in your home.
  • Slate can be used as an accent tile, in mosaics, or in a pattern to give your home a unique look.

Utility Value

  • Slate tiles are extremely durable and with proper care, you can expect to enjoy them in your home for many years to come.
  • They are very easy to clean and hardy as they can be vacuumed, swept, or mopped (with no detergents).
