Your hallway should be a stylish and practical place with enough room to bid visitors a warm welcome. With slate on the floor, you can safely let your kids run in and pick up their jackets with their shoes on, take off wet rain clothes and muddy shoes - or let an eager dog greet guests. Slate doesn't wear itself out - and neither will you.
With the same material indoors and outdoors you give a property a nice connection. A material that can withstand both snow, frost, rain and wind is very convinient.
Wood must have been treated in a completely different way if it should to be installed outdoors than indoors. Slate on the other hand is so maintenance-free and versatile that it can be laid in almost the same way.
