Travertine is a beautiful natural stone derived from limestone. It is typically available in beige and cream varieties, with many different types of white shades as well. Some exotic travertine slabs can even be pink or yellow in hue. Travertine is a very versatile natural stone that is ideal for both interior and exterior applications in a home. Travertine slabs can be formed into many different types of products, from paving stones to countertops and beyond.
- Travertine is a great stone for using outside around patios and pool areas. It can be used directly as pool coping and pool decking. Similar varieties can be used to create a unified design to your pool area, or you can create a unique look with laser-cut designs or a combination of different finishes of stone. If you are using travertine in the pool area, it is always a good idea to use a slightly rough finish for safety.
- Travertine can also be used for outdoor hardscaping, such as fountains and fire features. Benches can also be made with travertine slabs. Because travertine, like all natural stone, is an enduring and timeless building material, your outdoor spaces will be all the more beautiful for its use.
- Travertine has plenty of indoor applications, as well, and can work well in transition areas as a flooring material. It can be polished similar to limestone for a more refined flooring material and can make a stunning bath suite when used for wall cladding. Countertops can also be dressed in travertine, while backsplashes made of travertine tiles add a look that is both contemporary and unique to any kitchen or bath.
