What Is Travertine Tile?
Travertine tile is a great choice in homes and other residential settings, largely because it combines natural style with strength and stability. Masterpiece Carpet One in Kalispell, MT is your neighborhood expert when it comes to travertine, as we offer a selection from Bedrosians and Emser Tile.
Travertine is considered a natural stone option, so it certainly offers unique, one-of-a-kind looks and feels. But, unlike regular stone, travertine is usually gold or light brown. Furthermore, travertine is a bit softer than regular stone. As a result, it can be used not only on floors, but on walls, backsplashes, showers, and fireplaces, among other areas.
Like other tile options, travertine can be polished and sealed. This adds extra color and shine to the surface, and it also protects against scratches and most stains. In addition, travertine can be honed. Honing tends to make the surface more slip resistant, so it is recommended if you’re installing travertine on bathroom floors.
Given its style and strength, travertine tile is popular in bathrooms and kitchens. But, there are also certain styles of travertine that are durable enough for commercial and even outdoor settings. If you’re looking to install travertine in one of these areas, be sure to work with one of our tile experts to see which style is right for you.
