Choosing the right colour slate

13-Aug-2015 Slate is a highly attractive and very sought after stone worktop in many homes. Not only are they durable but they are also stylish and they can totally transform the look of your home. Of course, when choosing this kind of worktop, you will need to take a fair amount of time to consider the colour. Since they are the kind of worktops that are designed to last for many years, it’s worth taking your time to make the right choice.

When installing slate, it’s important to understand that the understated nature of this stone is what makes it so appealing. By not stealing the show, slate lets you really show off your stylish kitchen cabinets.

Some of the main choices in colour include black, gray, dark purple, red, and turquoise. There is even a lovely turquoise and dark purple combination. Once you have decided on the colour, you will need to choose the graining or pattern. While some have a more distinct pattern, others appear smoother. Again, like colour selection, the grain you choose will come down to personal preference.

When choosing slate, it’s also important that you choose the right colour cabinets to compliment the colour of the slate. Lighter coloured cabinets will look best with dark slate. If you install dark cabinets, it can make the room look particularly dark and small.
