Slate / Bluestone in Sunroom

qwertynyc1October 12, 2011

Hi There,

My wife and I are thinking of using slate or a bluestone in our sunroom (which is also a bit of a high traffic area when coming in from the outdoors) Our initial idea was tumbled travertine, but I think we will be better off with a Slate type of material/look.. Will appear less dirty.

Below is a picture we are hoping to recreate. Can anyone advise what stone you think is being used in this picture? To me it looks like a bluestone/slate.. but id love if anyone could suggest a good place to buy a similar stone at a reasonable price.

Thanks so much!

Jay

I looked at a bluestone a few years ago -- my guess would be slate.
