Made to Order
Honister Slate has been mined for many hundreds of years, but it has reached new heights of popularity in the home in recent years. Here are some excellent reasons for choosing slate for your new kitchen worktops:
- Hardwearing – If you are looking for longevity, slate is one of the most durable, hardwearing kitchen worktop surfaces you can choose.
- Non-porous – Slate is a naturally occurring non-porous stone. This makes it a great choice of material for surfaces where liquids may be spilt, including kitchen worktops.
- Maintenance-free – Due to its naturally low porosity, slate worktops are easy to look after and will not stain easily. Slate worktops require next to no maintenance!
- Heat-proof -Slate is a good insulator; it is heatproof and fireproof, meaning it will withstand hot pans on countertops with ease.
- Affordable – The cost of slate kitchen worktops compares favourably to other natural stone surfaces.
I’m afraid we don’t offer template services nor installation. Please do let us know if you struggle getting someone though as we do have some contacts in the industry.
We will always recommend to seal the worktop once installed. As it is ‘fresh’ out of the mountain and not use to modern environments, seal it again 6 months after installation. The worktops will show dull when it needs sealing again which might be 1 year or even 5 years later.
