Travertine, like marble is calcerous-based stone and largely made of limestone. While travertine looks and performs well as bathroom vanities, it is not appropriate for kitchen counters.u.
Travertine floors provide a warm and attractive surface and are highly recommended anywhere in a home. Most tiles are honed (not polished), which makes it less formal than a polished marble or granite tile. Travertine comes in many colors and types, in slab and tile, polished and honed, natural holes filled and unfilled.
