Ask the Tile Experts

What is travertine tile?

Travertine is a sedimentary stone made from limestone that is found in natural mineral springs. During the forming process, several minerals mix together to create the swirls and patterns that give travertine its distinctive character. Travertine tile is popular for its beautiful look and long-lasting durability.

How do you clean travertine floors?

It’s important to sweep on a weekly basis so small particles can’t scratch the surface of the tile. Make sure you use a neutral cleaner that is pH balanced to protect your sealer and clean your floors. You should clean with a damp mop and never use an abrasive chemical or acidic cleaner. For travertine, we recommend Grout & Tile Neutral Cleaner and Natural Stone Deep Cleaner from Superior Adhesives & Chemicals.

Can you use travertine tile in a shower?

Yes. Just like any other natural stone, you want to protect your shower surfaces against minerals found in water itself by sealing your tile. We recommend using one of our sealers from by Superior Adhesives & Chemicals that will last from 10 to 15 years. Enhance & Seal gives your stone a wet look and is available in pint and quart sizes. Premium Gold Stone Sealer provides a natural finish and is available in pint, quart and gallon sizes.

Is travertine flooring slippery when wet?

Any surface can be slippery when wet. It’s most dangerous when your feet are wet and the surface you step on is also wet. Polished and honed stones that are flat and smooth will be more slippery than our finishes that are brushed, filled and tumbled. Solve this issue by designing your floors so that you have some texture when you are coming in from outdoors and the shower/tub area. Introduce a lovely listello or a mosaic to break up your flooring design and add some grout line in those areas.

Can travertine tile be used outdoors?

No.

Where can you install travertine flooring?

Travertine tile flooring is usually found in bathrooms, but it’s also found in kitchens and other rooms. Basically, it can be installed anywhere you would install stone or ceramics: shower floors, bathtub surrounds, foyers and more.

Do travertine tiles need to be sealed? If so, what should I use for sealant?

Yes, just like any natural stone, travertine is naturally porous. To ensure that your travertine floors stay protected, you should seal them during installation and periodically afterwards. The Tile Shop recommends using Enhance & Seal or Premium Gold Stone Sealer from Superior Adhesives & Chemicals that will last from 10 to 15 years.

How durable is travertine floor tile? Does it scratch or crack easily?

Travertine is not as soft as marble but not as hard as granite. It can scratch if not protected, so be careful when moving heavy objects on your travertine floors. Be conscious of the finish you choose and what kind of area you’re installing it in. The nice thing about honed and polished floors is that they can be refinished down the road if needed. Travertine will only crack if it is not installed properly. Cracks generally only happen when there is movement in the floor itself—that’s why installation is so important. Travertine is naturally holey, so make sure to fill the voids on the back of the tile with thin-set (commonly called “back buttering”) before you place the tile down in your mortar bed.

What is the difference between travertine and porcelain tile?

Porcelain tile can imitate the look of travertine without the level of upkeep and maintenance that natural stone requires.

How thick is travertine tile?

In general, travertine tile is 3/8” to 1/2” thick. Some can be thicker to give the travertine tile more strength. Make sure you ask a store associate at The Tile Shop to confirm that your thickness is appropriate for your specific installation.
