If you are not already familiar with travertine, it is a limestone (or calcium carbonate) material that can be found around naturally occurring hot springs, generally in layers. It looks extremely similar to marble (and is often mistaken as such) though travertine is a completely different type of limestone altogether.
Travertine tiles in Melbourne are so popular because of their versatility and natural appearance. Their finishes can vary from polished, matte, tumbled (textured), and brushed (also textured). If you are looking for a finish similar to marble, polished travertine tiles or pavers can offer your flooring an expensive look and generally for less money.
Travertine pavers and tiles can also last for over one hundred years, due to their natural ability to thrive in various conditions and weather. It is also durable and sturdy and one of the few green flooring options (as it contains no chemicals). Since travertine is naturally occurring, using this as a flooring option (whether on outdoor pavers or indoor tiles) grants your home a natural yet polished look. Travertine blends in with any surroundings quite easily, and its subtle hues can pull together a project. It is also hypoallergenic so it will remain allergen and dust-free.
