Floors and Walls 


Travertine cutting
Vein cut and cross cut refers to the direction of cut, the first is perpendicular to the stratification instead the second is parallel to the stratification.

The cutting of travertine is very important as the final result is so different that suggests two different materials, even if they come from the same block. The vein cut, the most common type, shows marked and clear streaks, the layers of sediment run lengthwise. The cross cut, also known as “fleuri-cut and increasingly used, shows patterns that are often circular in shape revealing flowery, the so-called “nuvolature”.

The filling
“Filled” or “unfilled” terms pertain to the stone’s voids / porous / holes.
Unfilled travertine means that travertine is not treated therefore it remains in its natural porous state. The holes are exposed creating a rustic-looking finish. Filled travertine means that the travertine’s pores are filled with colour-matched material (cement, mastic, resin), creating a smooth homogenous surface. The filling can be technical, raising the level of resistance and compactness of the travertine, decorative, according to the finishes desired.

The unique textures make it looks timeless, the low colour variation allows each tile to blend perfectly with the next, creating a smooth and sophisticated composition. 

Travertine comes in multiple finishes and colour that are suitable for different usage areas. 


The beauty of travertine is enhanced thanks to the numerous finishing methods, every finish aims to display the travertine’s natural beauty and thanks to its toughness and compactness KingStone travertine guarantees an excellent polishing without equals.

Brushed Travertine

This is a rustic finish that want to display the antique-looking of the stone, also known as “antique-finish”, a brushed travertine is unfilled and obtained by the brushing he stone’s surface with a wire wheel or brush until the desired texture is achieved.

Bush Hammered

The bush hammered finish is one the most oldest stone finishings. The final result is a “rippled” effect on the surface of the stone, this finish improves the slight chiaroscuro effect on the stone and makes the stone naturally non-slip.

Honed Travertine

This is the most popular finish, when the travertine is honed usually the natural holes, called “vughs”, are filled, the stone is then sanded to one side to produce a smooth, almost matt finish that suits any design.

Honed Open Pore

Polished Travertine

This is the most modern and elegant finish, before the travertine is polished all natural holes are filled, the stone is then buffed until it is smooth and shiny, polished travertine imitates a mirror effect.

Sandblast Travertine

The sandblasting process consists of a gentle abrasion till the desired final effect.

Satin travertine

Split Face

The split face is the roughest finish available for travertine. The stone is cut at varying angles delivering unique attention for its uneven, varied depths.
