Slate material as a functional and decorative style
Current decoration trends are increasingly being directed by the use of natural resources, where natural stone stands out, and more specifically, slate. Something which is widely used and with greater frequency for decorating dining and kitchen tables. In order to present our fabulous dishes, the decoration of our table needs to inspire a certain amount of harmony and a balance across all the elements of the dining table.
To achieve this, we can enhance the appearance of our dinner plate by displaying them on elegant slate placemats. These individual tablemats made of slate will provide a natural, pure feel coupled with an elegance that will appeal to those chefs looking to wow their dinner guests. If you are looking to entertain your guests and make them feel special, then using slate placemats at your dining table will achieve this objective. They help take care of an important detail, namely the presentation of your table, and makes your guests part of an environment where they will feel comfortable and relaxed.
Slate adapts to every table setting
Slate is a surprisingly versatile material which has place mats in different shapes ranging from round or oval styles to more straight and clean shapes, such as the rectangular slate placemats from Just Slate. The textures and colours can also be varied, from rougher individual tablemats through to smoother ones, with light grey tones and a darker black colours.
The adaptability of slate can be attributed to its timeless characteristic, since it adapts to any decorative style and design. From more traditional or rustic environments through to more innovative and modern styles. The slate material is very tolerant against spills as well as being very heat resistant and is not affected by either hot or cold drinks. This prevents our cloth tablecloth or our wooden dining table from being damaged by unwanted accidents.
The slate placemats are also extremely durable as they are made with what is effectively a natural stone. In addition to being quite easy to clean just by wiping them with a damp cloth, we can wash them with soap and water. Although the slate placemats usually have a soft felt backing that protects the dining table from getting scratched and this felt should not be immersed in water. A word of warning, you need to be careful that the slate does not get dropped to the ground as they would likely break. The range of slate placemats, trivets and table runners from The Just Slate Company of Scotland is broad enough to satisfy most personal designs preference.
