Brazilian Black Slate

3rd October 2014

Brazilian black slate is a lovely material that looks great in any domestic setting. It is often favoured for bathrooms due to the fact it can be easily considered for use on the floor and wall due to it’s calibrated nature (all the tiles are the same thickness).

Brazilian black slate is also a wonderfully versatile product and it compliments a range of colours and textures due to it’s fairly consistent nature. It is lightly riven finish so has a nice bit of grain and texture underfoot, without having too many varying layers.
