travertine-flooring

Travertine kitchen tiles have advantages as well as disadvantages

You know the saying that there are two sides to every story and the same principle can be applied to other things by saying that there are disadvantages as well as advantages to just about everything. In terms of selecting flooring options you need to keep certain things in mind, such as the room size, purpose, amount of use and amount of moisture expected to be splashed. This is why you have to weigh up the pros and cons of using travertine kitchen tiles or travertine mosaic floor tiles in other rooms.

The pros and cons of using travertine verses porcelain tile in a kitchen

Travertine is a strong product, and can withstand the daily wear and tear from a kitchen. It is a natural product and dirt can easily be brushed off using liquid soap. However there are limited colours and it’s a little more expensive compared to porcelain tile, and also takes longer to dry. These are points to consider when choosing travertine floor tile for your home.

Travertine is a medium-density, porous material with a pitted surface that is usually filled and sealed for increased durability, though it can be left unfilled for a more natural look. Its finish can be polished, honed or textured. If you’re thinking about adding travertine marble tiles to your home, you should also take a look at the options available in luxury vinyl tile.

Just like natural stone, you’ll find the beauty and luxurious allure, but at a fraction of the cost – and with many advantages that stone simply can’t offer. With luxury vinyl travertine tiles, you get the luxurious look of natural stone in a floor that you can live with comfortably.

What should I consider in using travertine?

Travertine is a natural stone product. Because the minerals that make up travertine are highly reactive with acidic solutions (e.g. orange juice, vinegar), a major consideration is where the travertine will be installed and what it will be exposed to. Sealers will provide some protection to the stone no matter what the environment, but knowing what it will be exposed to will help you decide whether travertine flooring is a good fit for your project.

What colours does travertine come in?

Travertine comes in many different colours including ivory, beige, walnut, puce, and gold. The colour of travertine is the result of iron compounds or other organic impurities.

What does the finished surface of travertine look like?

Travertine can have four major finishes, polished (shiny), honed (matte), brushed and tumbled (textured surfaces). The type of finish given to the travertine will determine how shiny the surface will be. The polished and honed surfaces are flat and smooth, while the brushed and tumbled surfaces are flat and textured. The polished surface is the shiniest, while the tumbled surface reflects the least amount of light. The most common finish for travertine is honed but it is your choice about which type of travertine floor tile you want or if you wish to have a travertine mosaic wall feature.

Cleaning Travertine step by step

Travertine stone, a well-liked option for floors and countertops in the kitchen and bathroom, it’s not as hard or thick as granite. Understanding how to clean travertine make certain it last as long as you live in your home.

1: eliminate dirt, sand and particles that could rub the travertine.

2: Wet mop using a traditional mop and bucket or soft flat mop

 3: Remove wetness with a dry mop up or soft towel (air drying may leave streaks on the travertine.

 4: Call a specialized floor cleaner if you aren’t seeing results.
