Travertine Stone Slabs & Tiles for Commercial Tiling

 

Travertine is a natural stone that originates in groundwater and streams just below the earth’s surface. Formed when calcium carbonate precipitates from heavily concentrated calcium ion groundwater, each piece of travertine has its own natural texture and pattern, bringing a unique look to commercial natural stone design. Contractors, designers and architects use travertine on countertops, walls and flooring, as well as, exterior spaces and hardscape accents. Travertine tile is perfect for high traffic areas and complements any architectural design from rustic to contemporary. Arizona Tile offers a wide selection of travertine slabs and tiles that will add a subtle elegance to your next new construction or renovation project.
 
We offer a wide variety of travertine floor tiles, natural stone slabs great for countertops and more! Travertine tile and natural stone slabs bring unique warmth to kitchen floors, countertops, living spaces, and bathroom floors and vanities. A natural stone which has been highly affected by the forces of underground springs and subterranean rivers, travertine is the middle stage of limestone evolving into marble. Travertine has very interesting patterns and exists in tan, white, and cream-colored varieties. When mined, voids (air pockets) of various and random sizes are caused by carbon dioxide bubbles that became trapped during the formation of the stone. These voids truly lend travertine a depth not found in other types of tile. Travertine tile has a subtle elegance with lends it an old-world charm, from rustic to refined. Travertine has a quiet natural beauty shaped by the unique features of each tile or slab.
 
Travertine makes for a wonderful natural stone option used for garden paths and home patios. Installers may use grout to fill the natural holes in travertine, whereas others may leave them naturally open — travertine can be purchased "filled" or "unfilled" as well as with a polished shiny finish. Travertine is a favorite stone for use in modern architecture. You will often see it as façades, wall cladding, and flooring. Romans used travertine for building temples, the Coliseum, and a great variety of their architectural wonders. Its uses carried through to such beautiful buildings as the Sacre-Coeur Basilica in Paris. The Willis Tower in Chicago has lobby walls made of travertine.
