Waiting for the renovation raiders to up-do your flooring or wall? Why wait when you can have versatile Travertine tiles for all your tiling needs. Been used for centuries as a building material in Turkey and Italy, the aesthetic travertine is in use today for flooring, countertops, backsplashes, wall cladding on buildings, showers, wall coverings and places where the tile is preferred. If Romans can use it in The Colosseum, you can use it in your houses too. (Now that's a proof of durability, isn't it?)

Travertine is created when minerals have dissolved in the groundwater and then get moved by natural springs and rivers above ground. Evoking an ancient majestic charisma this tile can provide an aesthetic, luxurious and an ageless appearance to the room of your choice. These varied colored, different sized tiles with four diverse main finish can, in fact, be a handy option for all kinds of rooms in your house. Play with those bright and dark finishes in brown, gray, beige, rust, gold and salmon, to create a showstopper room.

As travertine is resistant to extreme temperatures, it would prove to be an amazing choice for your kitchen. The tumbled finish reflects the least amount of light and believes me, it does stay cool in sunlight. It also has an added advantage of the Cleopatra kind, chipped-edge, and aged look.

The polished and honed surfaces are flat and smooth making them perfect for an outdoor living space, patios, paths, and pools while the natural non-slip surface of travertine is an added rationale that makes travertine a good choice for your bathrooms. Well, no one ever disliked an antique style grand entrance or a custom tile work on shower walls. 

According to your needs, the tiles come in various shapes too. The visual variation provided by the rectangular, square, French pattern and mosaic travertine give you an option to become all artistic and landscape your area, your way. And since travertine is also easy to cut and shape; it is home renovation like filling odd spaces and replacing made super easy.
