Notably known for its classically neutral tans, travertine tile offers so much more than one shade of beige. The natural stone actually comes in an unexpected rainbow of colors, including light creams, silvery grays, coffee tones with hints of rust, and even grey-blue shades.
Travertine tile has its similarities to travertine pavers. It also adds value to the home and can handle harsh elements from frost to the hot sun. The tile comes in 1/2-inch thick pieces with squared corners and a smoother finish for a clean look, whereas travertine pavers are much thicker, ranging anywhere from 1 1/4 inches to 2 inches, and come in more finishes. Travertine tile requires traditional installation methods using grout, while the pavers can be installed over gravel or sand.
When it comes to designing your outdoor living area, you can have more fun using various travertine color options. Get inspired with these amazing outdoor spaces featuring travertine tile.
