Travertine is used widely in the world today. The main reasons for that is the beauty and versatility it offers to designers, builders and the end users. Its natural colour gives more freedom to designers. It is easier to install compared with some other kinds of natural stone. Cutting travertine is much easier than cutting marble. That is one of the reasons Romans chose travertine instead of marble when constructing their cities. Travertine became an extremely common material when they built homes, temples, baths, aqueducts and many huge amphitheaters. Travertine has withstood the test of time and today we see these buildings in many places throughout Europe and Middle East.
Today, travertine is one of the most versatile natural stones being used for indoor and outdoor purposes. It is used as floor and wall tiles, pavers, bench tops, furniture and building façades just to name a few.
