Travertine Bathroom Floor Tiles

When using travertine bathroom floor tiles, it is important to keep this luxurious stone’s natural characteristics in mind when creating your tiling scheme. Being a natural product, travertine is porous and can be susceptible to staining or marking if it is not properly sealed at regular intervals. Although these tiles can be used as a bathroom floor tile, they may not be the most suitable option for a shower base as ingredients in shampoos or soaps may interfere with the stone’s finish. In these bathroom layouts, a travertine-look porcelain floor tile may be the better solution. Porcelain tiles are well known for their immense strength and durability; these tiles are non-porous and resistant to moisture, heat, scratching and staining, making them a perfect choice as a bathroom floor tile, especially in designs where the floor tile is running right through into the shower area. A bonus of using travertine tiles in the bathroom as a flooring solution is that as these tiles are a natural stone, they can be professionally rejuvenated throughout their lifespan in order to bring them back to their original state, ensuring a lifetime of use in the home.

Travertine Bathroom Wall Tiles

Travertine tiles in the bathroom can be comfortably used as a wall tile, adding a wonderfully textured finishing touch to your interior design scheme. There are many stylish options available to choose from including an impressive range of colours and finishes as well as a range of tile shapes from classic subway tiles to small format classic square shapes and more.

These types of tiles will also require sealing in order to best maintain their finish over time however, as they are installed on the bathroom walls rather than the flooring, they will not experience the same wear as bathroom floor tiles would.

Caring for Natural Stone Tiles

Being a natural stone product, travertine tiles are porous and will require sealing. This process is usually performed prior to the tiles being laid (so as to prevent tile adhesives or grouts from marking the tiles themselves during the laying process) and then every few years thereafter depending on their wear. In general, if you notice your travertine tiles are looking a little dull, you can reach out to a natural stone maintenance company that will professionally rejuvenate their surface to bring them back to their original look. It is also important to use cleaning products in your regular routine that are specific for natural stone products as these are designed to be gentle enough for these sorts of materials while still providing a deep clean and not damaging or otherwise marking the tiles.
