Why choose slate worktops for your bathroom04-Aug-2016 It's no secret that there are a number of types of natural stone on the market. Each of which with its own price tag as well as pros and cons to consider. When the time comes to install new worktops in your bathroom, it's good to consider all of your options, including slate.
Slate, like several other types of natural stone surfaces, is formed by a great deal of pressure. Slate is formed on clay beds which means that it splits naturally into wide, thin layers. This makes the stone perfect for worktops in various settings.
The surface is beautifully textured which adds to that natural appeal. For the most part the colour choices include grey or black but you can also find some green varieties. While it is softer than some other stones (like granite), it is still extremely durable and the fact of the matter is that your bathroom worktops don't take nearly as much punishment as those in your kitchen.
Slate doesn't necessarily come cheap but when you consider its quality and beauty, the investment is more than worthwhile. You can also seal your slate worktops in order to ensure that they are protected against various spills and accidental exposure to various substances.
So, when you want to give your bathroom a stylish and more inviting design, consider slate worktops. Not only will they provide an instant transformation, but they will also stand the test of time and they will never go out of style!
