Travertine

Travertine – A Much Better Choice

­

­So you just bought a nice, big house for the family and are wondering what kind of flooring might look the best? You probably have ceramic in mind, what with its great durability and longevity, but as time will pass by, wouldn’t you get bored by the plainness of it? Don’t get me wrong but when it comes to durability and longevity, travertine is a much better choice because it’s a stone and, more importantly, you can get wonderful unique patterns for each stone that you install in your house.

Travertine can come in handy in a number of ways, you can have wall tile patterns, floor tile patterns and even a different pattern for your kitchen countertop! One of the best kind of travertine is French pattern. Quarried in Turkey for more than a thousand years, French Pattern Travertine tiles redefine the word unique. In addition to having different, veined patterns for each tile, the tiles itself are of different shapes and sizes, making sure of the fact that no 2 tiles are ever the same.

The French pattern could either be tile or pavers. The tile is used for indoor while the pavers are used in outdoor. Travertine French patterns may come with chiseled, tumbled and straight edge.

The French pattern is available in a bundle composed of one piece of 16 x 24, two pieces pattern of 16 x 16, one piece of 8 x 16 pattern and 2 pieces of pattern that is 8×8. If you want a set, then it is equal to twice the bundle. There are companies who will tell you to buy a complete set of 16 square feet.

Turkey’s contribution in the travertine tile market is indisputable. Travertine quarrying sites located in Turkey have excited us with its texture and colours that are really unique. The Anatolian civilization paved the way to make travertine a part of architecture, culture and life. This natural stone has beauty and strength that is unmatchable.
