Bathroom Threshold Options with Marble and Travertine

Bathroom Threshold Options with Marble and TravertineNatural stone floor saddles and bathroom thresholds add a distinct touch of flair to any home or office interior. They are beautiful as well as functional, and they offer interior designers the opportunity to include their use as an additional accent or color highlight. Natural stone thresholds made from marble or travertine are very popular because their patterning and color shade options work well with other stone products used for the floors, walls, or window sills.Stonexchange is a Miami-based importer and distributor of top-quality natural stone products. We specialize in floor thresholds, tiles, window sills, and countertop surfaces. Our company imports material in large quantities, saving commercial contractors and retail merchants a good deal of money through our full-crate delivery operation.

Using Marble Or Travertine Thresholds

Marble is a prized building material because of its natural beauty, long-lasting durability, and low-maintenance costs. Interior designers favor this product because of its wide variety of colors and patterns, meaning that the perfect match between stone and other interior accent materials can be found. Not only does marble enhance the look of the room itself, it also acts as an efficient water barrier, making it an obvious choice for use as a bathroom entrance transition saddle.Marble comes in a variety of colors that blend well with tiles or carpeting. Most designers prefer to use a lighter or neutral shade of marble as a bathroom threshold. The carpet used in offices or residential bedrooms is often a darker shade, and the ivory or cream/beige shades of marble complement this quite nicely. The bathrooms are often styled with jewel tones, meaning that a lighter shade of stone saddle will look perfect as a secondary accent color.White Carrara is a popular choice in commercial building interiors. White or off-white marble streaked with gray has long been a favorite in commercial building design. This shade works exceptionally well with both medium and dark shades of carpet, tile, and furniture. Stonexchange imports and distributes a line of White Carrara transition thresholds that will match any order instruction calling for the use of Alabama, Cherokee, Georgia, or Vermont shades of marble.Crema Sahara Marfil is a cream/beige shade of natural stone. This is the obvious choice for those wanting to decorate the room with both dark and light shades of tile, wall coverings, or furnishings. Similar to the Botticcino or Bursa shades popularly advertised by retailers, this color is quite neutral. This allows for changing of the interior design at a future date, something important to both residential and commercial property owners. Stonexchange imports bulk quantities of this often requested marble product.

Medium Ivory Travertine Adds Style To The Interior Environment

Anyone wanting to give a home or office interior a rustic, authentic and historical look cannot go wrong with high-grade travertine. This limestone material is very strong despite its brittle appearance, and its patterning is a wonderful complement to other interior accent shades. Travertine can be sealed to make it virtually waterproof, and it can be honed and filled in order to create a very smooth surface over which a heavy amount of pedestrian traffic can pass without damage to the threshold or tile.Travertine thresholds look their best when complementing other stone surface products. Travertine is a popular material used in residential bathrooms. This stone is often the material of choice for shower stall walls and curbs, soap caddies, and countertop backsplashes. The beige look of honed travertine stands out very well against the jewel tones so often used in residential baths.Travertine is affordable when purchased in bulk quantities. This stone is rather expensive to cut and fashion into specific sizes and shapes. The stone must also be honed and filled as well as water sealed. The cost is more affordable when the product is purchased in bulk quantities. Stonexchange imports large amounts of material on a constant basis, and we always maintain a large inventory of travertine thresholds, window sills, and floor tiles.

Further Information About Our Products

Our standard double bevel thresholds are available in both marble and travertine, and our Hollywood thresholds are available in White Carrara marble, Crema Sahara marble, engineered pure white stone, and black granite. These materials are imported by Stonexchange from overseas, but we do not purchase our product from a reseller. Rather, we are both the manufacturer and distributor.What sets us apart from most other importers and distributors of natural stone materials is the fact that we operate our own manufacturing and fabrication facilities. In other words, our commercial customers are dealing directly with the manufacturer of the products they order. This is a great money saver, especially when the product is ordered in bulk quantities.Our bathroom thresholds are expertly crafted. Stonexchange oversees all of the manufacturing of our top-quality transition saddles. The marble or travertine extracted from quarries located overseas is sliced into thin sheets, cut with specialized saw equipment into rectangular slabs, and shaped into perfectly dimensioned thresholds. The finished products are given a polish or honed surface, packed into large freight containers, and sent via transatlantic vessel to our distribution center in Florida
