When you begin remodeling or designing your new bathroom or Spa, here are a few suggestions for selecting the right product that will be up to date and appealing .

Tile never goes out of style.

Natural Stone has a soft inviting feel for that Mediterranean Spa look. Travertine is one of the most common Natural Stone used. The stone is characterized by pitted holes and troughs in its surface. Although these troughs occur naturally, they suggest signs of considerable wear and tear over time. Some installers use a grout to fill the holes, whereas others leave them open — travertine can be purchased “filled” or “unfilled.” It can also be polished to a smooth, shiny finish, and comes in a variety of colors from grey to coral-red.

Travertine comes in various sizes.

Travertine is tough against wear and tear primarily because of its construction. It’s a sedimentary stone formed in and around hot springs from calcite deposition and is then compressed over time. This type of limestone can come in a variety of colors, from ivory to coral red. Travertine is an adaptable material that can practically be used in any room, from floors to walls because of its durability and beauty.

After travertine has been installed, there are a few tips on how to maintain this stone over time. Travertine can be relatively easy to keep beautiful and scratch-free with floor mats and routine dust mopping. As long as you don’t use cleaners containing acid, your travertine floor or backsplash should look flawless for years to come.

Use Marble for a clean and elegant look. Marble is available in multiple sizes and coordinates well with polished porcelain. The light color of Carrara Marble creates the illusion of more space in smaller settings.

In its purest calcite form, marble takes on a creamy white hue, while marble that features hematite is known to take on a reddish tint. Other minerals, including limonite and serpentine, produce yellow and greenish hues, respectively.

Forged from limestone that was heated and pressurized in the core of the Earth’s crust, marble is one of the most luminous and visually stunning materials that you can use for your home flooring installation.

Nothing says opulence or exudes sheer lavishness like cool marble flooring throughout a home’s interior. While marble may require extra care, the unparalleled appeal of this elegant substance makes it well worth the effort. Ranking as a 4 on Moh’s scale of hardness, marble may not be as hard as diamond or quartz, but its resiliency makes it a solid flooring choice to withstand regular wear-and-tear.
