There are several reasons behind people opting to use travertine as their tile of choice in their homes and offices. These include:

 It’s visually appealing features
 It’s easy accessibility (this is handy when you need to replace a tile or two in your home)
 It’s easy to install features, especially in odd shaped rooms or corners
 It’s environment-friendly properties
 It’s versatility in terms of use, finish and colours
 It is easy to maintain and to keep clean, especially as it does not absorb dust or chemicals

In addition, suppliers of travertine tiles also resort to cross cutting when they cut tiles made of travertine. Cross cutting denotes cutting the stone along its natural grain. This makes it easier for the suppliers to repeat patterns easily. In short, cross cutting enables them to provide cuts that are regular in texture and colour – which are symmetrical and aesthetic looking.
