What is Travertine?

Travertine is a popular type of limestone, natural stone deposited across mineral springs – particularly hot springs. It is known to have a concentric or fibrous appearance and perfect to lay as tiles and pavers in large outdoor paving areas. 

Travertine tiles are popular due to its gorgeous luxury look around pool and outdoor pavers. Hugely popular among Australian homeowners, Architects, Landscapers and Interior Designers for providing a new decorative look to the paving areas.

Travertine tiles and pavers are mainly popular for their primary colours cream, beige and Silver travertine. However, white travertine and even rusty shades are gaining popularity for improved aesthetics.

How Travertine is formed?

The formation of Travertine occurs by rapid precipitation of calcium carbonate – usually in a limestone cave or at the mouth of some hot spring. When these are formed in the caves, travertine could form stalagmites, stalactites, and other types of speleothems.

Travertine is quite famous in Italy and used as a major construction material. However, the use of travertine as natural stone pavers and tiles is increasing day by day due to its appealing look and relaxing feel under foot.

Travertine serves to be a terrestrial type of sedimentary rock. It is formed due to the precipitation of carbonate materials from the available solution on surface waters or ground or across the hot springs that are heated geothermally. On the other hand, the softer & porous versions of travertine deposits are known to be formed out of the ambient-temperature water –referred to as tufa.

Occurrence of Travertine

In Italy, the famous travertine quarries are known to exist in Guidonia Montecelio and Tivoli. Here, some of the most important quarries since the time of the Ancient Roman Civilization could be found. The Guidonia quarry for travertine is known to feature significant historical value. It is because it is one of the quarries that was selected by Gian Lorenzo Bernini for building the world-famous Colonnade of St. Peter’s Square, Rome. Michelangelo is also known to make use of travertine to serve as the basic material for building the external ribs of the world-renowned St. Peter’s Basilica Dome.

Travertine is known to derive its name from Tibur –an ancient town during the Roman Era.

Top Benefits of Using Travertine for Landscaping

Travertine is one of the most famous natural stones for flooring or landscaping projects. Some of the potential benefits of the same are:

Cost-effective

In comparison to other landscaping materials like granite or marble, travertine is highly cost-effective. Travertine is known to appear exactly like marble or granite and turns out cheaper than the given materials.

Wide Variety of Colours

Travertine stone is known to be available in a wide range of colour options. The presence of multiple colours & shades provides a wide range of opportunities to the buyers. In addition to the colour variance, travertine stones are also available in a myriad of finish options. Some of the popular options include matte, brushed, and polished. The given characteristics impart a great deal of appeal to any landscaping or flooring project that you undertake with travertine pavers or tiles.

Heat Resistance

Travertine stone is renown for its ability to STAY COOL underfoot during Australia’s 40 degree days in summer. Unlike porcelain or granite outdoor tiles and pavers, natural travertine and limestone tiles will stay cool underfoot in summer. This makes them the PERFECT tile or paver for using outdoors, especially as pool pavers.

Durable

Being one of the most popular natural stone varieties, travertine is highly durable and weather-resistant. The best part is that travertine stones are moisture-resistant. They repel water, and therefore, tend to be highly durable for the longer haul. This is the reason why travertine stones are highly preferred for both interiors as well as exterior landscaping projects.

Non-Slip

Travertine is highly non-slippery due to its textured material. Read more about the Pros and Cons on Travertine Tiles here.

ALL YOUR TRAVERTINE QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Generally speaking we recommend following these basic rules:

  • Outdoor tiles or paving we recommend a tumbled and unfilled tile or paver. This ensures a maximum non slip surface.
  • Indoor floor or wall tiles we recommend using honed and filled or for a more rustic effect tumbled and grout filled ( we have colour matched grout specifically manufactured for each travertine colour)

Generally speaking here in Australia these are the most popular colours and surface finishes:

  • Outdoor tiles or paving we recommend a tumbled and unfilled IVORY travertine. Rustica is also very popular in Melbourne due to its very natural pitted surface ( which if preferred can be colour match grout filled). This ensures a maximum non slip surface.
  • Indoor floor or wall tiles the 2 most popular colours are Ivory or Silver travertine. As a rule the Silver Oyster is often the preferred option due to the fact that it often has a light creamy beige background with silver swirl highlights. The surface finish often preferred internally is honed and filled. BUT if you are looking for a more rustic or rural farmhouse effect I would suggest using the unfilled tumbled and grouting with our colour matched travertine grout.

  • STANDARD FRENCH PATTERN TRAVERTINE. This travertine pattern is probably the most popular travertine tile design installed here in Australia. Sometimes referred to as Versailles Pattern it combines the following sizes to form a unique tiling pattern; 610×406, 410×203, 203×203, 406×406 all in mm. This pattern is extremely well suited to both smaller areas and large areas of paving.
  • JUMBO FRENCH PATTERN TRAVERTINE. As the reference to jumbo implies, it is the extra large version of travertine french pattern. Well suited to large internal floors or large outdoor paving areas. We prefer this travertine pattern in rooms of at least 80m2 or outside paving areas in excess of 100m2 total area.

When purchasing your travertine tiles or pavers we recommend selecting travertine from Turkey. The reasons for selecting Turkish travertine are as follows:

  • VALUE FOR MONEY. Turkish Travertine we believe represents TRUE value for money. As we deal DIRECTLY with the quarry owners and over time built a strong relationship we are offered 1st choice on the quarry blocks available for cutting into tiles or pavers. So not only can we GUARANTEE the best prices the quality at these low price levels is exceptional and others in the industry cannot offer the same.
  • COLOUR SELECTION. Unlike Iranian or Italian travertine, the colour selection available in Turkish travertine is simply unequalled from anywhere in the world. Silver, Ivory, Brown, White pure colours to the multicoloured blends that we have achieved allow Turkish travertine to blend in to most if not ALL modern decor trends.
  • Travertine here in Australia is believe it or not based on U.S sizes. Whilst French pattern or Versailles pattern is the most popular size here in Australia, if you require a rectangular shaped tile or paver it will be 610mm x 406mm x 12mm or 30mm thick. Commonly stocked by the bigger retailers in a square shape is 610mm x 610mm x 12mm or 30mm thick. But when dealing with us we can virtually supply any custom size required.
  • Pool coping tiles are usually stocked in a tumbled or bullnose edge in 610mm(L) x 406mm(W) x 30mm(T) or 610mm x 610mm x 30mm.
  • Drop face pool coping is usually stocked in 610mm(L) x 406mm(W) x 40mm(D)x20mm(thickness at back of tile) OR with a 75mm Drop.

Today’s sealers make it very easy to seal your travertine. We have 2 main types of surface penetrating sealers (non slip):

  • Stone Shield – being nearly invisible.
  • Colour Enhance – highlighting the natural colour variation and highlights in each natural stone tile
