Architectural styles have become more customized, and natural stone travertine tile can lend a distinctive look to any new or renovated home or office building. Interior home flooring, office building flooring, pool house flooring, pool decks and patios, concrete basements, and exterior concrete slabs that need a new surface finish are all excellent candidates for travertine, limestone, or marble tile flooring.
Beautiful, Low-Maintenance Travertine Tile
Travertine tile, limestone tile or marble tile are excellent choices for durability and will create a lifetime of low maintenance and home or office value. These natural stone tiles can be finished to a smooth look, yet rustic effect. This can be intensified by chiseling the edges, tumbling or played down with honing (polishing to matte finish) and sealing. Natural pockmarks and color variations make them visually interesting alone, and downright exciting when laid out in a running bond (large format squares or rectangles), 2–5-piece patterns, or mosaic style. These tiles turn pool decks, patio floors, driveways, walkways, and outdoor kitchens into open-air works of art. Large creative installations, from retaining walls to privacy walls, wall cladding, and natural-looking waterfalls are all beautified using colorful travertine tile.
The vein-cut plank style in natural stone is an exciting look that mimics natural wood grain, it is extremely durable for heavy kitchen traffic and requires little maintenance once sealed with an impregnating sealer. There are many finishing options for stone, depending on the traffic and other considerations such as anti-slip. We like Suregrip Moleskin™ or honed for most indoor areas.
Stone tile is durable, strong, and easy to maintain
Along with marble and limestone, travertine is an incredibly strong and durable floor or installation material. It can withstand loads and traffic, so it makes an unusual and practical driveway surface. these types of stone are heat and cold resistant and will not chip or crack due to freezing temperatures (proper substrate installation is expected). Read our driveway blogs for exact information about the design and installation using travertine, limestone, or marble driveway pavers.
