Let's talk about travertine! This luxury flooring provides a uniquely beautiful look, and is most commonly seen in entryways, bathrooms, kitchens, and breakfast areas. Travertine is a natural stone (a form of limestone) that is frequently used in Italy & Turkey. (Fun fact: the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, and many other notable monuments are mostly constructed of travertine, proving its longevity!) Because of its wildly variable patterns & colors, the fact that it's soft underfoot, and that it's easy to match when replacing tiles, travertine is a very popular choice for homeowners desiring a warm, natural looking floor.
Take a look at some of our incredible listings that showcase this stunning stone flooring.
