Travertine floor tiles are from the same family as marble. There are times when people become confused between the two. If you visit a tile showroom and look at the two tiles together, you will see that they each have distinct features of their own. If anything, travertine floor tiles look more like ‘stone’ whereas marble has more of a soft ‘glass’ look to it.
There are many different types of floor tiles available for use in commercial environments. When it comes to selecting an office floor tile, you need to be mindful of the use that tile will have to cope with. Offices are rather unique in the way foot traffic uses the floor space. It doesn’t matter how you lay out your office space, you’ll quickly notice that everyone will start to use common ‘pathways’. This means one section of flooring will receive a lot of traffic whilst others will receive very little.
Kitchens are messy places. I have yet to come across a kitchen that hasn’t had something dropped on to the floor – either food, drink or something a little harder like a pot or pan, or crockery. I should think there’s many a home that’s seen a plate full of food dropped onto the floor at some stage – now that’s a combination of several elements. How forgiving is your floor when that happens? Kitchen tile flooring is at least easy to clean, and some tiles are more forgiving than others.
