A Stronger and More Sophisticated Alternative to Slate

Slate is a popular choice for home owners as they are sleek, durable and can add a sophisticated feel to the home. However, despite all of the positive attributes that slate flooring has to offer, porcelain is far superior.

For one thing, porcelain is more durable than natural slate; it is tougher and harder to scratch and chip. Slate’s density depends on the mineral composition of the soil it is formed within – unlike porcelain, you cannot be 100% sure that its quality will be as good as the previous batch. However, our porcelain tiles and paving are all fired at incredibly high temperatures, ensuring the finish product is vitrified and therefore as dense and strong as possible.

How Porous is Slate?

Slate is a metamorphic rock that is formed over years in coastal regions, but this means it is often unclear how the finished product will behave. Some batches of slate are more porous than others, and porosity in flooring can be a disaster!

Although slate has generally lower porosity than some natural stone, it still doesn’t come close to the water-resistance of porcelain, which – unlike natural stone – never needs to be sealed. This means porcelain is far less likely to stain, as it doesn’t soak up liquids like other natural stone.

Low Maintenance

Porcelain is incredibly low-maintenance, and it easily matches the attractive appearance of natural slate. Our stunning, large-format Slate range comprises 4 different shades: Ivory, Silver, Grey and Black. This allows you to enjoy the natural aesthetic of slate without the associated issues that comes with it. There is no denying that natural slate slabs make for a beautiful flooring product, which is why we have recreated its natural beauty in this low-maintenance form!
