Have you ever looked at two pieces of granite that looked similar but were priced drastically different? Why is there a price difference? For many materials it is as simple as logistics. Compare driving from Rogers Corner, MI to Brasil and then traveling from Rogers Corner, MI to Zimbabwe. So the higher priced stone is most likely from a location that requires more handling.

Is Travertine A Good Choice For Kitchen Countertops? (Shelby Township, MI)

Travertine lends a room a classic, old-world appearance. The stone comes in earth tones ranging from ivory to brown and is known for its textured, slightly pitted surface.

These pits, while offering character, can absorb liquids and trap food particles, eventually staining the countertop. Travertine’s softness also means it is more prone to etching and other abrasion. Finally, acidic substances can stain the surface quite easily. To protect the stone from scratches, dirt, and stains, travertine can be honed to a slightly matte finish, its naturally occurring pits can be filled in with grout or resin, and the surface can be sealed.

While this is a high-maintenance countertop, particularly for a kitchen application, you may feel the aesthetic benefits of travertine outweigh the cons. According to hometips.com
