Slate can be used in a variety of ways in a bath:
- Vanity: Vermont slate is a great choice. It is more unusual, although in many ways better performing that the typical choices. Its very low absorption makes it difficult to stain or etch. It takes a soft honed ‘eggshell’ finish rather than a gloss polish. We can provide thicker slabs for a more custom appearance and work with your countertop installer to deliver slightly oversize slabs to their shop.
- Tile Wall or backsplash: Vermont slate, because of its low porosity, is a good choice inside the shower, as a backsplash or any wet area. We offer many sizes of tile (here) to choose from in honed or natural cleft finish, butt joint or cut for ⅜” joints.
- Flooring: We offer many choices in color and size, starting at $6 per sq ft.
