- Polished: buffed until it is smooth and shiny
- Honed: holes and crevices are filled, and then the stone is sanded to give a smooth, almost matte finish
- Tumbled: travertine tiles are tumbled with smaller stones to get a weathered, rustic finish
- Brushed: tiles are smoothed slightly with a wire brush, leaving less texture than tumbled, but not as smooth as honed.
