With its light pastel shades traditionally comprising of ivory, cream and beige colours, travertine helps to accentuate the space in any interior. They have a recognisable pattern giving them a distinctive look. Travertine is particularly well suited to bathrooms, working majestically with modern features like silver metal radiators and black or white bath panels and sink applications. For additional decorative features complement travertine bathroom products with a mosaic feature to create a decor similar to that of the famous Roman bath houses. Staying with the Roman theme, travertine has been a popular building material and was even used to build the world famous Coliseum in Rome. Maybe it’s the formation of travertine, near hot natural springs, which means it works so well in areas connected with water but bathrooms are not the only areas in which travertine looks so amazing. The pastel look means dirt can be easily concealed, making them a popular choice for busy shopping centres and malls where cleaning expansive areas of flooring during opening hours is not always practical. A travertine kitchen feature can also have a spectacular effect. They work especially well with wooden worktops and units in farmhouse style kitchen designs. Travertine is a sedimentary rock and is therefore porous. To create an impermeable floor or wall, protective sealants need to be applied to the surface. Furthermore, travertine in outdoor areas is both practical and stylish. It can look incredible as a patio or pool surround in your garden and is highly resilient to weathering.
