I was looking through some information this morning and came across a nice image gallery on slate flooring. I had almost forgotten about his type of stone as a home design possibility. Slate gets lost behind wood, marble, and tile such as travertine. I would encourage you to take a look through the images. There are also some great ideas on driveways and walkways to add curb appeal to your home. Slate flooring is a viable option. Note: shoe not included.
