Slaty – Designer porcelain tiles that look like the real thing

Slaty - Multi-colour

Slaty - Multi-colour

Prepare to be amazed when you see the new slate inspired designer porcelain range called Slaty. Indistinguishable from a real slate this glazed porcelain range has taken the market by storm and setting a new benchmark for stunning looking technical porcelains that are both functional and beautiful. With so many slate looks in the market it is worth paying a little extra and having the best – affording a touch of endurable beauty to any room of your home.

The rich varied earthy tones are most stunning in the ‘Multicolour’ option which looks like an Indian riven slate. Unlike real slate you will not need to seal or treat the surface either before or after laying your beautiful floor.

Two other colours Ochre and Almond offer a more subtle toned down interpretation of one of the oldest and most popular natural stone materials. When a designer glazed porcelain looks and feels as good as Slaty you can understand why this is acknowledged as better than the real thing.

What is a wetroom?

Wetrooms are steadily increasing in popularity in the UK as they offer a contemporary minimalist look, and create the ultimate modern style statement for your home.

But what actually is a wetroom?

A wetroom by nature is essentially a completely waterproof bathroom, characterised by a a walk-in shower area with a floor the same level as the rest of the room. The room itself becomes the shower enclosure, often with a shower drain inset into the floor tiling.

In very simple terms a wetroom is created by coating the entire room with a waterproof coating and installing a suitable drainage channel into the floor. The room is then tiled floor to ceiling to create a stunningly practical water tight bathroom. As with any interior project consideration must be given to the technical elements of a wetroom installation and therefore we would always recommend you seek the necessary help and advice before commencing work on your dream bathroom.

Craven Dunnill stock a wide array of luxury wall, floor and mosaic tiles that can be combined together to create your desired finish. We also have in depth knowledge of the component parts that are required for preparing the wetroom prior to tiling and can offer advice on suitable drainage and waterproof membrane solutions.
