Sometimes, your home needs a little bit of a facelift or finishing touch that’s more than a fresh paint job or new throw pillows. And if you’re looking for that little bit extra, you might want to check out Natural Stone Warehouse.
Natural Stone Warehouse is a company that offers fine marble and travertine flooring imported directly from quarries over in Turkey.
But what exactly is ‘travertine’?
You might have come across the word while looking at tile and paving options for your next home improvement project. And if you haven’t, then you just came across it now and should definitely not look away.
Travertine is a type of limestone that is deposited by a mineral spring, which is why it has such smooth finish and unique colour and pattern. Travertine is a totally natural rock formation, meaning no part of the final product is made up of a composite mixture.
The stone has long been used as a building material, with origins saying all the way back to Ancient Rome. Many famous structures from throughout history, including the Colosseum in Rome and Ephesus in Turkey, were made using travertine stone. The fact that they’re still standing to this day is pretty much all the proof you need that this stone has crazy staying power.
Every single piece of travertine is unique
You won’t find any piece exactly the same as the one before. Colour variations such as ivory, walnut and rust tend to be consistent in colour, although you might find pieces that are slightly darker or lighter.
Travertine is a sedimentary rock, meaning that its surface is made up of hundreds of tiny holes that are undetectable to the naked eye. The high porosity of travertine allows the stone to absorb water very easily. This is the main reason why many builders, landscapers, architects and designers choose travertine for outdoor projects.
