Travertine Tiles

Travertine is a very popular material for tiling due to its smooth, easy to cut texture that almost feels soft to the touch. Available in a mixture of tumbled, honed or honed and filled finishes it is actually created by water travelling through limestone and emerging as hot springs, then quickly cooling.

The process of creation results in a very rich texture and deep cream or beige colours. Small shells are often visible within the finish.

Travertine wall & floor tiles

Travertine has gained a bad reputation in some quarters as a lot of poor quality stone has flooded the market. This cheap travertine often has large voids in the tile and is sometimes sold as honed and filled travertine but usually contains more filler than stone. Don't assume that this rubbish can only be found in dodgy shops or online, we have seen instances of large high street chains selling it at high prices. Good quality travertine still has some small 10-20mm holes, but they add to the texture and should have been properly filled and honed before being sold.

This type of stone requires sealing. Light colours should be fixed with a white adhesive. Travertine is suitable for use on walls and floors

Beige Tiles

Beige is a great base colour for tiles in any room as almost everything works well with it. The majority of customers who choose beige, actually end up choosing more beiges and browns to compliment it when making other decisions with regards to accessories such as towels, home accessories and other pieces of furniture. Try using a slightly darker beige/light brown as a floor tile and then a lighter shade for the walls and perhaps a mosaic sheet above the sink, or above the toilet, or if you are feeling daring add a featured area with a strong colour such as red, green or orange.
