Slate Tiles

Slate tiles have become a hugely popular option for many different rooms in the home, and they are regularly used as flooring in kitchens, bathrooms and other rooms in both traditional and contemporary home designs. The range of different colours, textures and patterns make slate a versatile material that can be used for a number of applications, including flooring and cladding.

Slate is built from a fine-grained rock, consisting of tiny clay minerals and small amounts of quartz and calcite. Some of the other minerals found in slate are very similar to those found in granite, which makes slate tiles a strong and durable option for flooring. The natural makeup of slate creates a unique texture and a wavy pattern that give slate tiles a beautiful, natural look that emphasises the character and design of a room.

Our Slate Flooring Range

We stock a vast range of slate tiles for flooring in many colour and texture combinations that are suitable for all designs, whether contemporary or period. Slate comes in a variety of natural colours, most famously grey but you can get slate tiles in shades of green, red, black, purple and brown – it all depends on the mineral makeup of the stone. Slate tiles can be cut into different shapes and sizes allowing for custom designs and unique looks in any space. Slate is a versatile stone that gives your room a beautifully natural look and feel.

Our Reigate showroom has a number of different examples of slate tiles on display, so if you are interested in discovering more about slate, please feel free to visit our showroom.

Cleaning Slate Tiles

Slate floor tiles look fantastic in any room, however to keep their appearance they require some care and attention. Following a simple cleaning routine is the best way to ensure that slate continues to look good and bring you joy in your interiors.

A dust mop is the most useful tool for any owner of a natural stone tile and comes in handy for a range of uses. Before using the dust mop you should sweep your slate tiles with a broom to remove any loose dirt from the surface. After this, use the dust mop and move consistently around the floor, making sure you avoid moving back and forth as this can move the dust around. There should be a minimal risk of marking or scratching the surface due to the smooth and flat surface of the mop.

After removing all dirt and dust, you can mop the floor using an all-purpose cleaning solution to give your slate tiles that final clean look.

Kevin and his team spent 3months renovating the whole ground floor with underfloor heating, etc working around kitchen fitters from another vendor. Kevin’s project managing skills can’t be questioned. Involved in the project Kevin supplied plasterers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters getting everyone working in conjunction with each other and with this, when a tradesman stated a time of arrival they turned up on the dot. The quality of the work was exceptional with nothing being to much trouble when working with such a demanding client as my wife. Don’t hesitate to ask Kevin about any bigger project as he has built up a talented group of tradesman that have and could solve the issues we all have finding good quality tradesmen that turn up and want to supply a top quality end result.

Reigate Tile Emporium won the tender to replace two floors of our house with tiles that had not been properly laid when our house was built just over two years ago. We had various companies around during the tender process but the minute Kevin Harris arrived to review the proposed works, it was immediately apparent his attention to detail, knowledge and advice were leagues above everyone else. Thankfully they went on to win the tender ! And wow what an amazing job they did. This was no simple or small job. We had issues with the original screed not having been dried out correctly or the laitance removed before the original tiles were laid. All these issues were identified by Kevin and a plan instigated to ensure the necessary corrective actions were taken. Throughout the works we were kept up-to date on an almost daily basis - nothing was too much trouble. I can’t say enough about Kevin and his teams expertise. And the final result? Just amazing - even the surveyor appointed by our Loss Adjuster commented that it was some of the best tiling he has ever seen. We are so so happy with the final result. All I can say is this - I doubt they are the cheapest but considering the nightmare we went through having to move out of our property for 14 weeks due to the poor job that was originally done, think really hard if they quote and aren’t the cheapest. It’s just not worth taking the risk. Reigate Tile Emporium seriously know their stuff and more importantly are passionate about what they do and their workmanship is simply superb. Like everything in life, you get what you pay for! Thank you once again Kevin and the team - incredible job - we’ve fallen back in love with our amazing house thanks to you.

Keith and his team did a great job for us on a very challenging project. We wanted our breakfast room and kitchen better linked by tiling through with matching tiles, spanning old-fashioned wooden floorboards and concrete, with the added complexity of underfloor heating throughout. Keith helped us with advice on suitable tiles and design - we settled on porcelain wood effect planks, which are amazing. The installation was complete within a week. The team worked tirelessly; tidying up and cleaning up at the end of each day. We are delighted with the result. We also had a prompt response to address an inevitable couple of snagging issues we needed addressing. Top notch throughout.

Great service, friendly, reliable and honest. Definitely will go back again. Refreshing to use a small, personal shop rather than a hideously big chain with sales staff with no knowledge of their product.

After struggling to find a good tiler, I contacted Kevin to see if he could assist with tiling our new bathroom. So glad I contacted him. He knew exactly what needed to be done and was incredibly professional, helpful and accommodating throughout. His tiler did a great job. Very happy with our new bathroom. Thoroughly recommend Tile Emporium. Thank you Kevin and Lee.

From discussing ideas, through to purchase and installation of Victorian style floor tiles in our porch, it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with Kevin and his team at The Stone Tile Emporium. They have been patient, helpful throughout, were fair on price and the quality of fitting exceptional. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
