Travertine is a popular natural stone flooring option for kitchens, bathrooms, and even whole-home flooring. It’s a gorgeously colored sedimentary rock formed by carbonate materials found in surface and ground waters. As a result, travertine is easy to cut and manipulate to fit small areas, making it a favorite to work with among builders.
Aesthetically, travertine can be used to add a touch of warmth to any home. There aren’t many people who dislike looking for travertine tile. The stone is available in a variety of colors and finishes so matching the flooring to the rest of your style should be no trouble at all.
Since no two travertine tiles are the same, you won’t have to worry about tracking down the set or lot number in the event that one of them gets broken. This makes replacing broken tiles much easier since it eliminates the headache of finding just the right one to match the others.
It’s worth noting that travertine is a very porous stone and that makes it prone to staining if spills are not addressed quickly. It does not get along well with acidic things like soda, juice, and certain cleaners either. Travertine is also on the more expensive end of the scale when it comes to natural stone flooring, but for many, the benefits of this beautiful stone far outweigh the drawbacks.
