Slate countertops continue to grow in popularity. These countertops not only look amazing, but they are also nonporous and extremely durable. One of the best things about slate is that is easier to clean and maintain than granite, concrete, or marble. Thanks to its versatility, slate looks great in bathrooms, kitchens, and even as backsplash. The design possibilities are nearly endless.

 

Slate comes in a variety of colors and is more uniform than slabs of granite. Some of the shades include black, charcoal, brown, grey, and pewter. Some slabs may include highlights of red, blue, or green. Slate is more subtle than granite, which can give your kitchen or bathroom a more consistent and put-together look.

Because slate is nonporous, you can rest assured your countertop is incredibly sturdy. The surface is less likely to harbor dangerous bacteria and is easy to clean. Slate countertops do not absorb liquids, so if you spill a glass of wine or juice, you do not have to worry about it permanently staining your countertops. Further, since slate is so hard, if you drop something on your countertop, it will not cause any chipping and it holds up well against heat.

Slate countertops are an excellent consideration for your kitchen or bathroom. Slate is durable, easily cleaned, and affordable.
