Polished vs Honed & Enhanced vs Natural
Written By: Corey Thompson ~ 10/25/2021


This is a Travertine tile, one half is polished and the other half is honed.  There are pros and cons to both finishes, I can provide either surface and in fact varying levels of both.


This is an example of color enhancing.  The material is Limestone but this process is commonly used on Travertine as well to provide a darker color than naturally occurring.  Often it leads to greater depth of color and contrast in the stone.
