Why Travertine Floor Tiles?

Travertine flooring is naturally dense and extremely hard. Formed by subterranean springs, hot springs, and other water sources, travertine is formed of mineral elements like calcium carbonate that build up over a long period of time. Somewhere between marble and limestone, travertine has a naturally porous surface and can be found in almost any cut, color, and finish you’re looking for.

Hamilton Parker offers travertine stone tiles in a wide variety of stunning shades and textures to match. Travertine flooring adds a distinguished, refined look to your décor and you can design your dream kitchen, bath, or entryway in one of the following naturally gorgeous colors:

  • White
  • Cream
  • Ivory
  • Golden Brown
  • Silver

And finishes:

  • Polished- Polished travertine tiles have a shiny, smooth surface, and feel similar to marble tile.
  • Brushed- Brushed travertine tiles are given a textured, worn appearance with a wire brush.
  • Honed- Honed travertine tiles are sanded to create a matte finish.
  • Tumbled- Tumbled travertine tile is literally tumbled with gravel to give it a rough-hewn textured look.

But travertine isn’t just for flooring. Its versatility makes it suitable for backsplashes or countertops and is even durable enough for outdoor spaces and décor. It might not be the best material for kitchen countertops, however, as the minerals in travertine are highly reactive with acidic solutions like orange juice or vinegar.
