What is Travertine?
Travertine is a limestone variety that has been used for thousands of years in architecture and design. This material most certainly has a proven track record when it comes to measuring a product’s longevity being the primary material used in the construction of classic works of architecture such as the Coliseum! Architectural structures dating as far back as Ancient Rome are still standing, proving this material’s immense strength and durability in building and construction.
The exciting Tumbler Travertine Tile collection offers a combination of 100 x 200mm and 100 x 100mm tiles. You have the unique opportunity to combine both tile sizes to create a stunning feature pattern in your design scheme. Available in two naturally occurring colour options that can be used as either a floor or wall solution throughout the home.
How to use Travertine Tile Solutions in the Home
Travertine tiles possess a unique non-slip surface thanks to their natural textured surface finish. This quality allows the use of travertine tile options in areas where a grip surface finish is desired such as outdoor spaces and even in the bathroom as a flooring solution. Thanks to the various naturally occurring colour varieties available in travertine, you are sure to find the perfect fit that will complement your design and colour scheme. From deep, rusty reds and browns, to soft, elegant beige tones, natural travertine stone offers a wonderful range of colour options.

Caring for Travertine Tiles
When selecting a natural stone tile, it is important to note the best care and maintenance techniques in order to ensure the product is well maintained over time. Natural stone tiles including travertine and marble for example, are porous materials. They can absorb liquids and dirt that has fallen on their surface which in turn can lead to discolouration or staining. In order to prevent this occurrence, natural stone tiles must be sealed at the time of installation and then every few years thereafter. It is usually advised that tiles be sealed prior to laying so grouts and tile adhesives do not mark the stone.
In terms of cleaning, it is best to avoid harsh acidic or abrasive cleaning products and instead use cleaning solutions that are specific to natural stone. Certain options in natural stone cleaners will also include a small amount of tile sealer within them, extending the amount of time in between full sealing procedures and assisting in keeping your natural stone tiles clean over time.
