Floor Travertine – Simply Explained

A pale, heavy, banded limestone produced from the evaporation of hot springs is known as Travertine. It’s one of the most commonly used stones in present day structures, commonly seen as wall cladding and flooring, external and internal and facade material. Many people love floor travertine. They use travertine for paving patios and garden paths and many other applications. It is characterized by naturally occurring pitted holes and troughs in its surface. You can purchase travertine ‘filled’ or ‘unfilled’ because these holes may be filled or left open. Travertine can be highly refined and comes in a number of colours from white through grey to coral red.

Floor Travertine – Why?

Floor travertine is one of the most popular stones in contemporary structures. Due to its ability to be shaped to match almost any purpose, people have used this stone as a building material for centuries. There are different surface finishes travertine comes in. TFO’s range includes travertine tiles, honed, and tumbled travertine. Honed tiles have a slight luster, the tiles are smooth but not glossy. When it has a porous texture without any shine, that’s a tumbled finish. You can install floor travertine with minimal grout lines, providing your floor an overall smooth stone look.

Travertine floor tiles are a resilient flooring option. To offer a deluxe feeling to a room, you can use travertine in hallways, foyers, porches, kitchen countertops, fireplaces and living spaces. The tiles can also be used for exterior wall cladding, shower areas, swimming pool surrounds or for standard floors and decorative fixtures. Travertine makes a luxurious fashion statement for your floors. It really is inexpensive and a multi-facility stone.

Caring for your travertine tile flooring is not a hard process. It makes cleaning even easier, should you protect your travertine flooring with sealants. To prevent staining, clean up spills quickly. The very best materials for cleaning your flooring are a sponge or soft cloth, warm water plus a specialized tile cleansing option bought at your local home improvement center. A dust mop is best used to clean the top of your flooring.

Travertine flooring is the perfect choice if you’d like a cheap, low maintenance (in contrast to marble) and unique flooring option. You can use it for virtually any flooring surface and it is decorative, ecofriendly and opulent.
