Slate Countertops are a very good-looking countertop material for your kitchen. Slate Countertops have the wonderful texture of stone and a beautiful stretch of light to dark grey colors. In addition, the slate countertop might contain some glamorous colors like blue, purple, green, red, brown, or black.
Slate countertops are hard countertops that are rarely seen in kitchen. It's not uncommon to find Slate Countertops on building, floors and roofs. This is because Slate as a material is strong and sturdy.
Something to keep in mind, however, even though slate is better at resisting stains, it's still recommended that you seal slate countertops. When drops of water splashed on the surface of a countertop and do not form beads, it's time to reseal. Using a sealer that penetrates the slate will offer your countertop higher protection, while topical sealers will wear away faster.
