Origin: Much like marble, travertine is also formed by way of underground water systems. Yet, because travertine is formed at a different stage of the process, it has characteristics that are different from the veining patterns common to marble.
Appearance: When travertine is formed, the escaping gases caused by water vapor create tiny ‘pores’ in the stone. By the time it’s solid, the pores remain. This gives travertine its distinct character, along with its creamy to chocolaty color range. Often, travertine is ‘honed and filled’ for those who love the color range travertine offers, but want to get a more refined look without its distinctive pores. Some choose to go the other way, and invest in tumbled or brushed travertine, which renders a wind-worn, ancient look.
Effects: Travertine tile is used indoors and out, depending on climate, often times to get the look of the Ancient World – the Middle-East, Rome, Ancient Greece. This is where travertine had it’s heyday as a primary building material. And the imperial presence of travertine remains undeniable even today.
How To Use Travertine: flooring, countertops, cladding, coasters, pool surrounds, patio pavers, sinks, moldings and other accessories.
Advantages: A second-to-none surface when a certain warm, inviting effect is what you want. The subtle shade spectrum travertine offers makes it pretty trend-proof.
Challenges: Much like marble, spills should be seen to right away to avoid stains.
