What is travertine used for?

Travertine adds to the appeal and value of a home. What most people enjoy about installing this type of flooring is the material is so easy to cut and it is very simple to fit the pieces into oddly shaped rooms or corners. The material itself is a variety of limestone, which makes the installation much easier.

Travertine is a light colored type of limestone. This rock is generally found deposited in mineral springs, particularly hot springs or limestone caves. The material is used in building in Italy, the United States, and other countries. At Palm Tile & Stone Gallery, we offer travertine flooring and tiles for a variety of applications in

Sacramento, Roseville, Granite Bay, Fair Oaks, Natomas, Elk Grove, Folsom, and the Surrounding Areas.

 

There are many advantages to using this material in your home. The stone increases the aesthetic appeal and value of the home. Another thing that makes this material popular is the ease of installation. Because it is very easy to cut, the pieces can be cut to fit oddly shaped rooms and corners that are challenging for other types of stone. It is available in a variety of beautiful natural colors, including shades of white, cream, tan, grey, coral red, and rusty colors.

 

The appearance of the stone is available in several textures and finishes. The natural texture of the stone has pitted holes on the surface. These holes can be left open or filled in by the installers, known as filled or unfilled. In addition, the stone can be polished to create the specific desired effect. For example, it can be left in its natural rustic state or polished to be smooth and shiny.

 

Travertine is a versatile stone that has a wide range of applications, in addition to flooring. It is used as a building material for a variety of uses, including saris, showers, countertops, backsplashes and fireplaces. In addition to travertine tile inside the home, it is used in outdoor applications. The stone is used for the exterior walls of homes, pool decks and steps, patios, walkways, and outdoor fireplaces. When determining the quality of the stone, look for tiles with fewer holes, as these are more durable and better quality.
