Travertine flooring provides a unique and distinguished appearance and comes in four different types of finishes such as:
Polished travertine: a shiny and smooth finish which is similar in appearance to the marble.
Brushed and tumbled varieties of travertine: these varieties are more textural in nature and perfectly accentuate the natural style of the tile providing a slightly pitted appearance.
Honed tile: these are also smooth while providing a matte finish when laid on the floor.
