Looking for something really unique and cool looking to cover any of your interior surfaces but don’t want to go the typical tile route? Slate-ish gives you the look of actual slate but it’s made from recycled and reclaimed scraps of paper-laminate materials.

They take scraps from countertop manufacturers around the United States and cut the material into six shapes that can be used as a backsplash, fireplace surrounds, feature walls, ceilings, and pretty much any other surface you can think of. The tiles are super lightweight making them a great option for vertical walls and ceilings.
