Your pool house or cabana area can become the heart of the home during warm weather months with the right amount of attention to style and comfort. It is the hub of parties, BBQ's, and late night gatherings with friends. It's important that your poolside design maintains your personal style, while also meshing with the outdoor ambiance that makes it such a unique and desirable living area.
The right tile flooring is key to creating a high-end aesthetic, while preserving a natural outdoor aesthetic.
Slate Tile Flooring is a Natural Way to Create High-end Appeal
Slate is a natural occurring stone formed from layers of volcanic lava and ash. After being compressed over long periods of time, these layers can be cut into slate tiles. Slate usually comes in various shades of grey, although it can also include a variety of colors such as earthy greens, rusty reds, purples, and blues.

Slate Tile Flooring Is Not Slippery When Wet
One major benefit to selecting natural slate tiles for your pool house and/or cabana area is that they are nearly 100% slip proof when they become wet. Because slate is a natural stone that forms over a long period of time, it is porous with a slightly rough texture. This allows water to be absorbed into, or run off the slate. It is smooth enough to form a comfortable walking surface but maintains a slip-proof surface when wet, which is optimal for your pool side surroundings.
Slate Tile Flooring is a Perfect Poolside Choice
Because of the naturally occurring colors and patterns, slate is even more attractive when it becomes wet. The earth tones will become darker and more vivid when they are splashed with water, but maintain their color after they dry. While other flooring choices will fade over time with constant exposure to sunlight and water, your slate tiles will look as as good as the day they were installed for many years to come.
Slate is easily incorporated into your landscaping designs to create a fluid aesthetic from your pool, to your cabana, to attractive garden pathways. Regardless of what colors you choose, your slate tiles will always blend in with the natural world around them.
