3 Reasons Why You Should Consider Travertine Flooring

When it comes to flooring materials, travertine is an extremely popular choice for both residential and commercial properties, for homeowners and professional designers alike.

This is because travertine, which is similar in appearance to porcelain and marble flooring, has a number of unique properties which put it ahead of many other stone surfaces, and today we’re going to have a further look at some of these favourable assets.

1) Stand out from the crowd

One of the most appealing aspects of travertine flooring is its distinct and bold look, which differentiates it from many run-of-the-mill stone types that don’t boast much in the way of variety.

This is because travertine has a natural veining which forms unique patterns and imbues every stone with its own character and look.

Indeed, using this stone material in your home is a sure-fire way of making it stand out from the crowd!

2) Environmentally friendly

These days, consumers are rightly conscious of the effect their actions have on the world around them.

Travertine is an excellent choice in this regard as it is a very “green” choice when it comes to stone flooring options.

Unlike other stones, such as porcelain, for example, travertine flooring is all-natural, which means it doesn’t have to go through a manufacturing process that isn’t very eco-friendly.

3) A breeze to install and maintain

Although, as mentioned above, travertine is similar in appearance to marble and porcelain, it is far easier to install and maintain – not to mention much more affordable.

This is because it is very easy to find a travertine tile that matches your needs – with porcelain and marble it can often be difficult to find what you’re looking for.

In addition, travertine tiles are very simple to cut and shape, which makes installing and fixing travertine flooring a less time-consuming and pocket-emptying activity!
