natural cleft slate or honed?

Posted by megsrob (My Page) on

I am trying to decide between a more honed vs a natural cleft slate tile in my kitchen. I preferred the look of the cleft in the store because it seemed to have more depth than the honed but now I am wondering if cleft tile would look too rough? I had a harder time finding the color I wanted in a honed i think that is why I veered toward the cleft...a dk grayish tile with slight green undertones. any ideas or thoughts?

RE: natural cleft slate or honed?


I'm helping a friend who is going through the same thing, in a house just purchased. He loves the natural look of slate but the maintenance in the kitchen (and he wants it in the bath) will be hard. I kept telling him about the water from the mop puddling in the grooves.

Here is a link to the one he decided on. It is called golden green but it is subtle even in bright light. They also have gray but you might like the green. It is from Emser. Anyway, click the link and scroll down to the honed version.

Good Luck!
