Slate Effect Kitchen Tiles

Slate effect kitchen tiles are a forever popular floor and wall covering for the kitchen. Slate is a world renowned product that has been used in kitchens for centuries, originally a natural product cut from a single piece of stone and calibrated in to tiles, these can be found in many country homes and cottages. The tile industry has come a long way over the last decade and now, we are able to introduce slate effect tiles. Slate effect kitchen tiles are much more appropriate than authentic slate for the following reasons. Unlike real slate, slate effect tiles do not require sealing or special cleaning agents, this means a low maintenance tile that once down looks and feels the same for years to come. Unlike real slate, these tiles are cut to one size, one thickness and do not have lips or sharp edges so are much more appropriate for busy homes, especially in the kitchen area . Lastly slate effect tiles look completely authentic, thanks to advancements in tile technology, these tiles don't just look like real slate but feel like slate too. They are designed and manufactured by utilising the latest HD technologies in tile design. A ceramic or porcelain tile is first carved and baked to contain the riven features of slate and then images of real slate are printed on to the body to offer a perfect replica of slate with plenty of variations. At Applebys-Tiles we are proud to say we have a large and extensive range of slate effect kitchen tiles to suit the needs of every home owner from cream slate effect to rustic copper slate.
