A slate backsplash is one of the most popular focus points in many new kitchens today. They are installed in kitchens with a wide array of looks and styles. Here are some of the pros and cons of a slate backsplash.
- Strength- One of the biggest drawbacks of slate tile is that it is somewhat brittle. While you will not have a lot of wear and tear on a wall tile, there is a chance that you could hit it with something at some point. When you have a brittle tile like slate, you may have to deal with chipping and breakage.
- Requires sealing- In order to properly prevent staining, you will have to seal the slate periodically. Most experts recommend doing it every year for best results.
