Silver French Pattern Traverine Tile

Travertine is a terrestrial sedimentary rock, formed by a process of rapid precipitation of calcium carbonate at the mouth of hot springs or in limestone caves. Travertine often has a fibrous or concentric appearance and exists in white, tan, cream-colored, and rusty varieties. This natural stone brings unique warmth to kitchens, living spaces, and bathrooms. Travertine is frequently used in modern homes as a natural and sturdy building material.

The key difference between travertine and other natural stones lies in the process of formation of the rock, a hardness of the stone and its appearance. Key characteristics of travertine are the holes within the stone caused by escaping carbon dioxide. The holes in travertine determine its grade. Far from making them less desirable, these holes and pits add to the beauty and appeal of travertine.

Travertine is a natural stone and hence, not uniform like man-made materials. Each tile is uniquely crafted by nature with random striking patterns, pits, and distinctive veining. A travertine tile may have a matte or glossy finish. Options include filled and honed, unfilled honed, brushed, tumbled and polished. Travertine flooring can create a timeless, classic looking interior floor, paved patio or a rustic garden path. Travertine tile flooring comes in assorted color variations.
