When it comes to kitchen countertops, there are quite a few options out there for people to choose from. Over the years, marble and granite have become popular choices, but slate countertops are also something to consider. Not only are slate countertops beautiful, but they also have other qualities that can make them a better choice than marble and granite. Since slate is not a porous material, it is relatively easy to keep clean and doesn’t absorb liquids. This means that you won’t have to worry about any potential spills causing permanent staining to your counters. On top of that, slate is very durable which means that there is a low likelihood of scratching or chipping. Last, but certainly not least, slate countertops are affordable and are less expensive than marble and granite. Here are 10 kitchen designs with slate countertops.
