ALL YOUR TRAVERTINE QUESTIONS ANSWERED

What travertine surface finish is suitable for my area?

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)
What are the MOST popular travertine colours?

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.

  • Is Turkish Travertine the best?

    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.
    What are the standard travertine sizes stocked?
  • 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.
  • Should I seal my Travertine once installed?

    It has long been our view that it is not necessary to seal travertine around swimming pools. However travertine should always be sealed in the following instances - in or around BBQ areas, driveways, ALL internal wall or floor applications, Outside entertainment areas where you will eat food.
    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
