Travertine is a type of limestone that forms around mineral spring deposits. This flooring option comes in a variety of earth tone colors, including tans, browns, rust, and beige hues.
This is one of the oldest building materials in existence with mild tones found swirling in its hazy, shifting surface effects. Each piece is also a nature-formed work of earth art, making any floor created from them a one-of-a-kind installation. Subdued:
Travertine is available in several soft palette colors – tans, beiges, grays and off white being some of the more popular flooring options. These colors add a sense of earthy sophistication, without overwhelming a room with dramatic colors.Durability:
Like most natural stone materials, Travertine is made to take a beating without showing significant damage from scratches, cracks, or chips. Long-lasting:
While regular maintenance and care are required with travertine floors, these materials have the potential to last literally for decades. They may tend to weather, but if you wish, you can prevent weathering with a periodic application of stone-sealing agent. Ease of repair:
Since travertine comes in tile form when a particular piece breaks it can be removed and replaced. If you're installing a new floor, be sure to keep a few extra tiles for perfectly color-matched repairs.
