Travertine worktops are one of the most amazing natural stone surfaces that are available in various styles to complete any home or commercial project in the most affordable and fastest ways.
Travertine is a naturally available limestone created by pebbles and sediments deposited by rivers. Due to the stylish appearance, softness and durability, many decorators, designers and developers have opted for this stone for a long time.
MKW Surfaces has a wide range of natural stones, including travertine worktops. Travertine has been categorised as a limestone formation made of calcite. Just because of the presence of calcite in travertine, this worktop surface is softer compared to conventional limestone.
Limestone, available in its natural state, is formed after years of exposure to pressure and heat. On the other hand, naturally available travertine has been attributed to the base of water bodies, such as lakes and rivers, by the accumulation of mineral deposits.
Being a softer natural stone, this worktop material is not ideal for every place. Travertine worktops London are usually used for:• Kitchen Worktops
The consistent hue and long streaks of the travertine kitchen worktops make them a beautiful interior decor material. But this is not as durable and hardwearing as some other worktop options available in the market.• Interior Flooring
Travertine worktops also are useful to make durable flooring that may withstand regular wear and tear. This worktop material steals the show in any interior, especially when done in a honed finish.• Bathroom
A bathtub surround is popular these days. The travertine worktop makes a statement in any interior with its exquisite pattern. It’s also an excellent option for walls tiles in bathrooms. It will look great, especially when paired with bathtub surround to blend the entire bathroom interior.• Outdoors
Travertine is also considered to be a durable and popular choice for outdoor areas like patio and pool decks. This high-friction surface is slip-resistant and hence, ideal for pool decks. However, it must be sanded a little, or it can be too rough for bare feet.
End users can buy them in so many different colours, ranging from shades of cream and gold to grey. It depends on the geographical region from where it’s quarried, and the minerals are present in that particular region.
