Travertine for kitchen: honed & filled, tumbled...?
I usually post in the kitchen forum, but I thought I'd tap into the wisdom of the flooring experts.
We are making choices for a kitchen Reno and are considering the use of travertine for our floors. This will not be ant eat-in kitchen, and there won't be stools at an island. We will use the kitchen for regular family cooking, and we don't have four-legged pets...although we do have two active sons (ages 7 and 9).
We love the look of travertine, but do have some concerns about practicality. Nevertheless, if we go with travertine, would you recommend, honed and filled or tumbled? I am assuming that polished would not make sense in a kitchen.
We welcome any insights. Thank you in advance!
