If you want to create the natural look in your home but you don’t have the budget, don’t worry – we have a great selection of realistic Slate Effect Tiles to choose from. With their lifelike riven designs, they’re perfect for injecting character into an interior wall or floor space.
Slate tiles are a popular choice when it comes to tiling an interior floor area. They usually have a textured, riven finish; which is perfect for injecting interest into a bathroom, kitchen, hallway or living area floor space. Natural slate tiles are all well and good; but they can be a little on the pricey side, and they require treatment and maintenance. For a simpler, more affordable, zero-maintenance alternative, choose from our fantastic selection of slate effect tiles.
Reasons to Buy Slate Effect Tiles
Perfect for use throughout the house
Slate effect tiles are timeless – they’ll never go out of fashion and, unlike a lot of tiles, they’re certainly not limited to use in one or two rooms in the house. Quite on the contrary, they will look perfectly in-place in any area throughout the house. From the entrance hallway, through to the living room, dining area and kitchen. There are even gripping anti slip options available for those slippery bathroom floors.
A popular choice, when looking for a realistic slate effect floor tile, is the Kuala Tiles range. Available in a few different colourways, in two different size formats, Kuala Tiles consist of a solid-coloured design; allowing for a nice, clean, simple look on your floor spaces.
But why are natural tiles so timeless? Why are we so ready to welcome the natural look into our homes? It’s something our exclusive designer, Louisa Charlotte, calls ‘Nature’s prescription.’ It’s the idea that inviting natural textures into our homes helps us feel closer to nature – and, therefore, helps us feel more at ease. Allows us to relax more easily, whilst lounging around in our rooms. Which is the point of interior design, is it not? To make a home feel more… homely?
Splitface effect tiles
Splitface tiles are one of the most prominent rising trends in the world of interior design. If you’re unfamiliar with them, they are staggered staggered displays, consisting of strips of slate that have been cut to different lengths, heights and thicknesses. The result? An eye-catching, textured, multi-levelled display. Although the natural slate split face tiles look fantastic, they aren’t suitable for use in shower areas, and they take a little bit of patience when it comes to cutting them to shape and size. Fortunately, in this world of innovative tile design, there are a few excellent split face effect options available from Walls and Floors. Made from porcelain, our Liguria Splitface Tiles consist of the staggered, raised design you’d expect from a split face piece, and they come in three colourways – perfect for injecting some interest into a kitchen splashback. Thankfully, they also have a realistic slate effect design. They’re also suitable for external use. As splitface tiles go, the Liguria selection consists of a fairly slim slate effect strip. For something a little chunkier and more substantial, try our Vesuvius Split Face Effect Tiles! They have a thicker design, with a rustic, weathered option; ideal for adding aged charm and character.
