Why You Should Choose Travertine Tiles Over Marble Tiles

Travertine is not the same stone as marble. Although, they have a similar appearance, travertine and marble are completely different stones. Sometimes travertine is known as travertine marble – but they aren’t the same.

The main differences between travertine and marble are:

Travertine is a type of limestone. It is typically recognised for its surface voids and holes. This is the most naturally form travertine. However, you can also get their holes honed and filled as well as polished. This makes the tiles completely flat and smooth surface – convenient for sweeping clean.

Compared with marble, travertine is more commonly used in floor installations. Due to travertine’s durability, weather resistance and other practical properties, it is well regarded as a practical tile especially for outdoor tiling. Marble is typically not used as often as travertine outdoors as it requires much more maintenance, upkeep and care. Therefore, marble tiles are used more in internal applications such as benchtops.

Travertine tiles are stronger and more weather resistant than marble tiles.

Why Silver Travertine Are The Hottest Pavers of 2019

Why Silver Travertine Are The Hottest Pavers of 2019

Silver travertine pavers have gained HUGE popularity in 2019. This natural stone has surged in popularity with renovators, architects and landscapers. It’s no wonder, with the rich monochromatic tones and natural luster, silver travertine works well with modern homes…

 

The natural beauty of silver travertine

Silver travertine pavers and tiles feature natural cool toned textures. Colours typically featured include a mixture of blues, greys, charcoals and whites. These cool tones evoke a more contemporary look in the home. Also, you are getting a completely unique product – no two natural travertine tiles are the same.

The almost monochromatic colours in silver travertine pavers and tiles allow for easier styling. This makes it easier to be more expressive with your furnishings without worrying about clashing colours.

Many of our customers also love to enhance the stone textures by choosing Silver Travertine in French Pattern. This style breaks up the traditional uniformed arrangement of tiles by featuring tiles coming together in different sizes. You can further enhance the look of the French Pattern tile shapes with your tile grout colour.

The swirly natural stone textures make your space appear more luxurious. If you love marble tiles, you will achieve a similar aesthetic but with the added strength, grip, weather and scratch resistance of travertine. In contrast, marble stone tiles are impractical and require much more maintenance and care to keep in pristine condition.

 

No doubt, with silver travertine’s desirable rich natural aesthetic and practical properties. As a result, it has become the stone to suit modern lifestyles.

Luckily, at Travertine Tiles Warehouse you can get the premium silver travertine look for less. Feel free to give us a call: (03) 9706 9796.

 

Silver travertine tiles are a smart and practical choice

For strong, durable stone tiles, travertine is a smart choice. They are built naturally tough and can withstand a lot of weight and foot traffic.

As a result, travertine tiles are ideal for tiled driveways. Also, they have a high resistance to chipping and scratching which means you’re less likely to have to replace damaged tiles compared with other stone pavers.

Travertine tiles and pavers are extremely weather resistant. Rain, hail or shine your travertine pavers will keep their shape. Even if you’re located in an area where there are frequent heatwaves or even blistering cold, your travertine pavers will withstand the elements. If you live in Melbourne (where we too also get all the above), you don’t need to worry about your travertine pavers.

With travertine pavers, you can be confident to host an outdoor party without worrying about guests damaging your tiles. However, for peace of mind and to ensure your travertine tiles look pristine forever, we recommend applying a tile sealer. Simply apply the tile sealer once and your travertine tiles will always look as good as the day you bought them. The tile sealer will provided added protection for your travertine

Silver travertine tiles are very versaTILE

Silver travertine pool coping is the best option for your pool

As pool coping, silver travertine enhances the blue tones of pool water. Many renovators love are impressed with how inviting a swimming pool looks paired with these gorgeous silvery stone tiles.

If you’re looking for the perfect pool coping, choose travertine. As well as its natural good looks (as mentioned above), they are a practical choice for your pool area.

Silver travertine tiles are cool to touch (even on a hot summer afternoon). This is particularly beneficial on hot days when you’d likely be using the pool. Simply, there’s nothing worse than having to quickly jump out and tip toe run across burning hot tiles in summer on bare feet. Also, don’t forget your furry friends’ paws in summer! Travertine pool coping and pavers stay naturally cool because they absorb the earth’s temperature underneath the tile. However, many other stone pavers absorb the heat from the sun making them unbearable to touch especially in uncovered areas.

Choose travertine pool coping, for a safer pool and spa. Travertine has a natural non-slip surface which makes it a safer option around slippery areas such as pools, spas and ponds. If you have children and pets this is a very important factor to consider.

Why Travertine Pool Coping Is The BEST Decision

Why Travertine Pool Coping Is The BEST Decision

Travertine stone is the most popular choice for pool coping, pavers and tiles around the world. It has a many benefits such as it’s timeless look, it feels amazing underfoot, is incredibly durable, easy to clean and more!

As Australians, we love the great outdoors. As a result, we typically spend much of our spare time in relaxing in nature or having a catch up with mates in our backyards around the barbecue.

If you’re lucky enough to own a pool, it is the centerpiece of your outdoor area. It is your private relaxing retreat as well as an inviting gathering spot for all your friends and family to make memories.

If your pool area needs an upgrade, you can’t go past travertine. Using travertine pool coping and pavers will make a huge difference to the look and feel of your pool area…

Why Should I Choose Travertine?

There are a multitude of options with choosing tiles and pool coping. There are many stone options and decking options to choose from, but before you get overwhelmed with the myriad of choices, you will ultimately come back to travertine. There are many reasons you should choose travertine over any other stone or decking option.

Travertine is better outdoors

Travertine has a naturally cooler touch than any other paving stone. As a result, travertine pool coping is a more practical choice when you and your family are enjoying the summer months outdoors. Typically, most people want to enjoy their pool and outdoor area more when the weather is warmer.

Imagine the unpleasant experience of trying to climb out of a pool and have to grip your hands onto the piping hot pool coping. Then to quickly make your way on bare feet across what feels like hot coals on your bare feet. Ouch!

These unpleasant experiences will be drastically reduced if you install travertine tiles and pool coping. That’s why it makes sense to choose travertine pool coping over any other stone or paving material.

Travertine is environmentally friendly

When travertine tiles and pavers are made, there are less man made processes involved compared with other stone options. The stone is harvested naturally from hot springs with minimal processing. Therefore, travertine is a great choice to reduce your environmental footprint as well as bringing natural beauty to your pool area and surrounds.

Travertine is a safer option with high slip resistance

Travertine stone has natural grip. This is important to consider especially if you have elderly people or children likely to be around your pool area. Prevent unnecessary slips and falls with the practical high slip resistance by installing travertine pavers and pool coping around your pool area.

In addition, with travertine pool coping, having the extra grip makes it easy to enter and exit your pool and spa.

Also, compared to any other paving stones or materials, travertine tiles and pool coping absorb the most water. As a result, this means that there are less puddles and water resting on the surface of the tiles compared with other stone options.

Travertine tiles are a smart long term investment

Travertine pool coping and tiles are extremely strong and weather resistant. You won’t need to worry about them if they experience heat waves or drastic jumps in temperature. You also won’t need to maintain them as often as other paving and pool coping materials. Travertine stone is extremely hardy and stong.

Also, other stone tiles tend to experience colour fading over time, making the entire pool area and surrounds look weathered. With travertine, you will not experience this. The colour you bought your travertine will stay the same. It is no doubt that choosing travertine tiles and pool coping is a smart decision to last the test of time.

At Travertine Tiles Warehouse, we have a large array of travertine pool tiles and pool coping. Travertine tiles and pool coping is universally a very popular choice. It has a timeless appeal, easy to clean, feels amazing on bare feet and there are heaps of colours and styles to choose from!

However, before you start shopping for your travertine, make sure that you take these things into consideration before you start tiling your pool:

Decide how you want to feel when you see your pool

There are many reasons why people choose to have a pool. Consider how you and/or your guests should feel when they enter your pool area once you’ve completed your renovation. For example, you may prefer a casual and relaxing oasis, an exotic Balinese retreat, a sleek sophisticated minimalist look or an impressive grand Versace style villa?

This will then determine what type of travertine tiles and pool coping will work better to serve your goal.

Understand the position of your pool

Is your pool uncovered and facing west? It may be a good idea to choose light travertines tile to help repel excess heat from the afternoon sun. However, you may not want to go too light because it may create a reflection with the sun. The positioning and external factors surrounding your pool will make a difference to how you use your pool area. You don’t want to install your pool, tiles and pool coping and realise this when it’s too late!

Consider your lighting and furniture as well if you have an indoor pool.

Consider the colour of your pool

Is your swimming pool aqua, teal or green?  Once you’re aware of this, it will help you to choose the right stone tiles to enhance the look of your pool. For example, if your pool is dark blue in colour, you may choose a lighter coloured tile such as Light Ivory Travertine Tiles, to create a contrasting effect.

Your pool has to be paired with the travertine tiles you choose. Together, they will set the scene for creating your pool area.

While everyone has their own individual tastes, there is almost always a stone tile that resonates with someone. There are thousands of stones to choose from. Travertine tiles have a universal appeal because of it’s warm tones and range of both dramatic and subdued tones.

 

Strong and durable

While some stone tiles such as marble, granite and quartz require a little more care. In the long run, stone tiles are a great investment due to their strength. However, with the right maintenance, any stone can last forever. If you choose a very porous stone tile, make sure you seal it properly. As a result, we love selling travertine tiles because they are have an undeniable strength and appeal that is unmatched. Travertine tiles are also a great choice for outdoors because they can easily survive extreme leaps in temperature. It’s no surprise, that the Colosseum (which is made completely from travertine stone), has lasted thousands of years!

 

Unique look

No two stones are the same. Even travertine tiles from the same quarry have different characteristics and attributes from each other. With natural stone tiles, you hold a unique part of nature in your home.  Each piece has an individual quality and personality that can’t be replicated. As a result, every stone piece tells a story of how it has been created and molded from the earth. Natural stone has formed naturally from the earth that has a greater appeal rather than a lifeless conventional replica tile. Own a piece of the nature with the ever elegant natural stone tiles.

 

Each piece of stone has life and energy

Many geologists and other stone enthusiasts believe that stone holds an energy. Many people believe that a stone has a personality and mood that can provide positive natural vibes if you’re in close proximity to it.

 

Natural stone tiles have an unbeatable elegance and timelessness about them. Stone tiles are also extremely versatile. This means you can use stone tiles for indoors for your floor, stone splashback, stone feature wall and stone fireplace. Outdoors, stone tiles are practical and look amazing for your patio tiles, pool coping, stone paths and driveways.

Travertine tiles are a great option for your indoor tiling. This is because they have are strong, have a universal appeal, add warmth, add a luxurious stone texture and aren’t as visually obstructive as other stones. Travertine tiles will instantly give your interior design a lift and enhance the space around it.

If you want to incorporate travertine tiles in your interior space, we recommend choosing honed and filled tiles. Honed and filled travertine is when the holes and voids typical in travertine stone are filled. Therefore, this creates a smooth, flat surface which makes it easy to sweep clean and mop. Travertine tiles look amazing in kitchen floors, splashbacks, bathroom floors, family rooms and dining room tiling.

As well as using travertine tiles indoors, you can create a seamless look by continuing the look in your outdoor area with travertine outdoor tiles.
