Rustic interior design is the latest trend in the home décor market, and slate worktops can help you to achieve the perfect look.
When you visit Instagram or check out celebrity homes, you’ll see many cottage-style properties with gorgeous rustic décor. If you want to incorporate the rustic look into your home, then you might be tempted by wooden furnishings. These solutions look natural, traditional and innovative.
While wood is perfect for furniture such as tables and chairs, it can be hard to maintain if used for kitchen countertops. If you’re a keen cook, then you need your kitchen worktops to be hardy and durable.
The perfect material for this is slate. Slate countertops fit perfectly into rustic homes but are also durable and long-lasting. As such, you can enjoy your beautiful slate kitchen worktop for many years to come.
If you’re interested in turning your home into a rustic haven, then read on to find out more about how you can incorporate slate kitchen worktops.
Choose The Right Type Of Slate
Slate is a natural material formed when natural clay and volcanic ash come together and compress into a dense material that is perfect for a wide range of uses.
There are many different types of slate, so you need to make sure that you find the right one for your kitchen worktops. Coulon Stone can help you to select the perfect slate product for your home, thanks to our vast array of options.
Our stunning Italian slate is soft, and as such, not appropriate for kitchen worktops. However, we also offer beautiful Brazillian slate, which is much more robust and better for kitchen counters.
The best slate for worktops is Berwyn Slate from Wales, which we can source. This solution is durable and naturally gorgeous, making it perfect for your rustic kitchen.
All of our slate products can be made watertight. You can also polish them for a sleek and shiny effect. They’re robust and will withstand a wide variety of incidents. These include hot pans, dirt, natural juice from fruits and vegetables and more.
Pick A Colour That Suits Your Home
As a natural material, slate comes in a variety of different colours, ranging from jet black to dark grey, and each piece of slate looks different from another.
When choosing your slate kitchen worktops, you should check out the piece of slate that you’ll be using before you begin. You can then find the perfect colour for your rustic kitchen.
Consider visiting Coulon Stone at our showroom in Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire, so that you can find the perfect slate for your kitchen countertops. Our team will show you all of the pieces of slate available so that you can find the right option that will look gorgeous in your kitchen.
Decorate The Space Around Your Countertops
Choosing the perfect slate kitchen worktops is only the start of the process of turning your kitchen into a rustic oasis. In this space, you can cook your favourite dishes surrounded by natural beauty.
As well as slate countertops, consider the furnishings, fixtures, and fittings in your kitchen. Think about how they can fit into the rustic aesthetic that you’re looking to achieve.
Many rustic kitchens use brass or copper fixtures such as taps. They also incorporate wood and pale pastel colours to create a natural look. You could also consider a natural stone floor to complete the rustic look. This approach will make your kitchen look just as you always envisioned it.
