Travertine is a widely used building material that has been utilised in various construction projects for ages. In ancient Rome, travertine was used to build temples, aqueducts, monuments, and amphitheatres. Some of these monuments still stand to this day! Due to its warm and earthy hues, in shades of white, tan, cream, and rust, this stone is often used in modern architecture. If you want to transform the interior or exterior of your home with stylish travertine cladding, you will be able to find all you need at Artmar.
Travertine is characterised by the pitted holes and throughs that can be spotted on its surface. If a more modern finish is desired, the stone can be polished, leaving it with a smooth, shiny finish. Today, travertine is most commonly used for building facades, installing flooring, or applying wall cladding. If sealed properly, travertine is also a great option for outdoor installations, and many clients use it for paving patios or stylish garden pathways.
