Travertine, like marble, is a natural stone. It’s extremely versatile and can be used both indoors and outdoors for nearly any tiling project. When you think of nature and its understated beauty, think travertine. With colors that range from neutral shades of white, beige, cream, and gray to warmer shades of tan, brown, bronze, and gold, you simply can’t go wrong. If you’ve never considered travertine tile before, you should.
Not sure where to buy travertine or how to use it in your home? St. Louis Tile has a large selection with a showroom that lets you see and feel the different shapes, sizes, and colors. We also have on-site consultants who can help you create that just-right feeling for your home. We’re experts on all things travertine, from design to upkeep.
Travertine Textures: Polished, Honed and Tumbled
Travertine has a natural beauty with different textures. Mixing smooth and rough textures in one space can create a sophisticated yet earthy visual impact. The use of alternating textures will draw your eye in and create warmth in the room, even with a more modern design.
Whether you choose polished, honed, tumbled, or a combination of all three, travertine will not disappoint. Depending on the location — indoors or outdoors — and if dampness is a factor, travertine tile may need to be sealed. Not all travertine requires a sealant, but to make it last for years to come, proper care is important. If you’re unsure about how to care for your tile, please ask the experts at St. Louis Tile Company. We’re here to help.
Travertine: Indoors, Outdoors, and Everywhere

As you can see, wherever you decide to put travertine is only limited by your imagination. Beautiful and soothing in a way that only natural stone can achieve, travertine will provide no shortage of compliments from appreciative guests. Of course, it goes without saying — you’ll love it, too!
