|Travertine has become one of the leading stones in terms of popularity within the last few years. Travertine has become popular due to its calm neutral color tones that easily complement most colors and home designs. Travertine is a form of limestone that is formed in underground hot springs. This environment gives travertine its beautiful appearance that consists of visible holes formed within the stone. These holes caused by water can be filled with mortar or left unfilled for a rustic look. Travertine is a porous stone; therefore we recommend that you seal it. Travertine comes in a variety of different styles and colors. Do not be fooled by super inexpensive travertine that is advertised at some locations. This inexpensive stone is not on the same level with our products and often times leaves unknowledgeable customers dissatisfied due to soft brittle tiles that have a high color variation including unflattering colors. Holmes Tile & Marble Co. deals with travertine from the finest quarries in the world. Our choice brand of Durango Stone travertine is an American owned company that owns its own quarries in Mexico. Their products come in a wide variety of choices in color, finish, sizing, & edging. Decorative travertine borders and mosaics are also available. We hope you enjoy viewing our pages of travertine.
