The natural elegance and grandeur of travertine make it highly preferred for many indoor remodeling and home improvement projects. Despite its increasing popularity as flooring these days, the use of travertine has been practiced for centuries. The Roman Colosseum is one of the perfect examples of ancient structures that were built using the natural stone. Travertine has been used as flooring in many grand mansions, palaces, and Renaissance castles, too. If you choose tiles in a brushed and chiseled finish, you should be able to recreate the old world look that is present in those remarkable monuments and historic buildings in your property, resulting in a historic touch to your indoor spaces.
Travertine tiles and flooring can add a touch of elegance and grandeur to your home, similar to how the material had helped create the majestic beauty of the Colonnade of St. Peter at the Vatican. The natural stone is durable and can withstand heavy foot traffic, making it ideal to be installed as flooring in places where people are likely to frequent such as the kitchen, dining room, and living room. Travertine flooring offers a sophisticated, elegant look to those areas while ensuring a durable and non-slip surface that can make those rooms safer for everyone.
The non-slip properties of tumbled or brushed and chiseled travertine tiles make them preferred for certain applications where wetness, spills, and moisture are likely to be present, such as the bathroom floor. At the same time, the flooring offers a dramatic transition from tile to tile, resulting a bolder and rustic look that is timeless. But travertine’s timeless appeal does not end there. This flooring has the ability to last for generations, too. Hence, you do not have to worry about repairing or replacing your tiles in just a few years’ time. Moreover, you do not have to worry about your flooring looking outdated, even if you want to change the rest of your interior design.
