Colonial Marble & Granite offers many types of travertine tile. We show a few options on our site but have many more samples in our showrooms. Travertine is part of the limestone family of stone. Travertine is formed when limestone is heated and pressurized by the earth’s crust. Travertine tile is both durable and beautiful. With natural earth tone coloring – travertine has a soft coloration which is ideal for kitchens, baths and foyers and can be used on walls and floor in both residential and commercial applications.
