Travertine is a sedimentary rock that forms when mineral water, from hot springs or warm rivers and lakes, percolates through limestone and recrystallizes. Travertine is characterized by natural holes and cavities that result from tiny carbon-dioxide bubbles traveling through the rock. This creates an earthy texture that draws many homeowners and designers to travertine. Travertine is found in warm colors, from creams to golds, giving it a modern yet ageless look.
Travertine can be used for flooring, walls, countertops, vanities and more. The appeal of choosing travertine for your home or project is its unique distressed texture.
