Travertine Tile

Travertine – Suited For The Australian Climate?

In Australia, the climate is temperate. Contrary to countries within the northern hemisphere, we do not encounter ice and snow, harsh winds and biting frosts. Fairly, Australians are fortunate enough to experience wonderfully warm weather almost all year-round. It also signifies that in terms of home decoration we can select from a number of floor coverings like sandstone pavers, granite, travertine tiles and slate.

Aussies struggle a lot of the time trying to stay cool and comfortable . Yet it is a battle that you could win when we step within our own home.

A great deal of the warmth can be either absorbed or transmitted through the floor. The best way to ensure the coolest feeling for the feet is selecting natural materials. Natural floor coverings could keep you cool in summer and retain heat in the winter months like wearing wool.

These stone and slate will also last apart from trying to keep you cool. The durability of stone and slate is its best asset. It will not fade under the sun; it’s resistant to chemicals and alkalis and won’t be destroyed by water contrary to most man-made materials. These materials are hard to chip and crack and look clean and tidy even if they’re not!

If you are looking for a resilient and well-wearing floor covering for your outdoor or poolside areas, then natural materials will yet again be your first option. Selecting top quality Travertine to line your pool area or complement your landscaping will end up helping you save costly repairs and maintenance costs. Good quality Travertine is tried for outstanding density, water absorption, slip resistance and strength to salt attack which means it will look better for longer.

Like every natural substance, Travertine pavers will age softly and will really add character, warmth and beauty to your house. It is hard to beat natural substances for durability, stain resistance, practicality and above all visual appeal. There actually is no better choice for that harsh Australian climate, whether you’re looking at interior coverings or outdoor tiles.

      Hi there, thanks for your enquiry. Travertine has a matt surface finish so does not give off glare.
