Travertine and porcelain are both popular paving options, each with their own advantages and benefits. If you’re struggling to pick between the two and are looking for more information, you’re in the right place!
Travertine and Porcelain – What’s the Difference?
Travertine paving is a type of limestone. Like all limestone, travertine is soft and incredibly porous.
Travertine is a popular paving option due to its beautiful aesthetic. Its light beige/ivory colour means that it’s easy to match with a wide variety of colour palettes, and it also naturally brightens a room.
Although travertine is a popular paving option, it’s not without its hinderances. The natural porosity of travertine means that it can potentially absorb a lot of moisture, thus, having travertine paving on your property requires a lot of maintenance and upkeep.
This is where porcelain as a contending paving material comes in. Unlike travertine, porcelain paving has naturally very low porosity, and as a result, it is low maintenance, slip-resistant, stain-resistant, strong, durable, and generally just has a large number of advantages travertine doesn’t have.
If you’re yearning for the beautiful aesthetic of travertine paving but don’t want the hassle, you might be surprised to learn that you can have the best of both worlds!
Here at PrimaPorcelain we’re proud to offer porcelain paving tiles with the travertine aesthetic, allowing you to have the look you’re after whilst avoiding the excessive maintenance that comes with natural travertine.
