Travertine has been used as a building material for thousands of years, and can even be found in the iconic Colosseum in Rome. Easy to cut and shape, travertine tiles can fill small or oddly shaped spaces much easier than other materials, such as porcelain tiles. A timeless natural tile, it looks gorgeous in both traditional and modern homes alike.
Although more commonly seen in tile sizes for indoor or outdoor flooring, today there are numerous stylish interior uses for travertine tiles which can help bring additional timeless luxury into your home.
Exploring the Versatility of the Travertine Tile
Create A Grand Entrance Way
There aren’t many floor materials that create a rustic yet sophisticated look in your entrance the way classic travertine does. With its naturally uneven or chiselled qualities, travertine tiles add a luxurious aesthetic to a foyer or entrance way in your home or apartment block when used as flooring.
Choose from either travertine mosaic tiles or use large pavers, depending on the size of the area or the effect you wish to create.
Bold Bathroom Tile
Using large scale travertine throughout your bathroom creates a big, bold, luxurious look. This tile brings a pleasing, natural texture and warmth to the room, with each slab uniquely designed by nature. If you would prefer to keep the travertine confined to one specific area of your bathroom, choose to tile either the shower, vanity backsplash or bath, rather than the entire bathroom. Choose a light travertine tile in tumbled or honed finish on your bathroom vanity or floor, as these withstand common bathroom product spills.
An Extraordinary Kitchen
When used in kitchen backsplashes, countertops and flooring, travertine tile can create a show-stopping kitchen, perfectly showcasing appliances and existing finishes. If you prefer to stick with a low-maintenance natural stone, opt for a one-of-a-kind classic travertine bench-top, backsplash or install a unique pattern above the stove. Just like any natural stone, travertine does require a sealer to prevent liquids from seeping into its pores.
