The host of benefits this stone brings is immense! Have a look at why Travertine tops the trend of natural stones and why it is the right choice for every project.
One of the most robust materials after Granite, Travertine is known for its density. It can withstand heavy footfall and extreme weather, without breaking, chipping, or caving in. No wonder it is largely used in patio, courtyard and even fireplaces. If installed and maintained properly, Travertine pavers and tiles can last for decades or maybe a lifetime! Sounds like a great return on investment, no?
The fact that Travertine is resistant to fading, scratching, moisture, or fire, makes it even more desirable. Once you invest in Travertine, you’d be stress-free forever as it only requires occasional sealing or simple cleaning to retain its shine and keep dust or debris at bay. Who doesn’t love a fuss-free stone?
Safe and sensible
The natural textures on Travertine offer a good grip. This prevents slipping hazards on floors as well as pool copings. Also, Travertine tiles and pavers being heat resistant, do not get hot in the sun, and are comfortable to walk on. Their fire resistance means they do not crack and do not need additional safety layers in fireplaces. If this doesn’t entice you to go for Travertine, then we don’t know what will.
Travertine has a marble-like look in warm and earthy colours. The unique textures make it look timeless. Unfilled Travertine with holes on its surface lends a rustic, aged look to the stone, perfect for outdoor areas like walkways. Honed finish Travertine has a matted surface minus the glaze which lends a subtle warmth to indoor spaces. Overall, the soft neutral hues complement every space and lend sophistication to all builds.
If you want the beauty of a natural stone but cost remains a concern, Travertine is the perfect choice. The luxurious flooring stone is more cost-effective than marble and granite. A beautiful stone less than the price of marble sounds like a steal deal.
