Traverine Finishes

  • Polished -The travertine is smoothed and polished to a shiny, reflective surface
  • Honed filled – A honed finish is flat and satiny smooth with a low-shine matte finish. Honed travertine is the most popular choice for home use.
  • Brushed chiseled – Brushed travertine has slightly rough texture and a matte finish. More antique and is less slippery compared to honed or polished finish
  • Tumbled – Tumbled travertine is the most natural finish, resulting in a highly textured finish with no shine and edges that are rounded with a worn appearance that resembles ancient stone
