Consider Sophisticated Travertine for Your Remodel

Now that your Atlanta home renovations are coming together, it’s time to start thinking about interior finishes for flooring, walls and countertops. Depending on the extent of the remodel, new exterior finishes may need to be selected as well. Before you fall back on the old standards like ceramic tile or hardwood flooring, why not take a look at gorgeous and versatile travertine tile?

Combining rustic charm with sophisticated style, this type of tile is a fantastic selection no matter what your design preference. It has a chameleon-like quality and blends perfectly with the surrounding decor. With a wide variety of colors and patterns, travertine is a tried and true building material from bath to kitchen, foyer to fireplace. Travertine can be installed with its natural matte finish or polished to a high sheen depending on location.

Travertine is definitely a top choice for both interior and exterior flooring. It brings such an elegant and rich look to any room of your home and is so hardy it stands up well to heavy foot traffic. Travertine is available in sizes from small mosaic pieces to large slabs, does well in inclement weather, and ages beautifully,

Since travertine is a porous material, it’s important to work with a professional design-build firm to help determine what style of travertine works best in certain locations. And because travertine has such a wide variety of natural patterns and shading, it’s the perfect material to use for custom tile art designs. For example, in a master bath, use large slab travertine on the floor and smaller more uniform travertine tiles in a matte finish inside the shower and on the countertops. Then have a fabulous one-of-a-kind tile design created in the surrounding backsplash.
