Outside, the stone is in its original environment: Nature
The multi-format travertine allows you to use the same kind of stone for your terrace as for your indoor floor and thus make your house more spacious. On the terrace, the formats remain similar to those indoors, except that the thickness is higher to be able to resist rain and frost.
Note: Remember to keep a slope of at least 3% for your terrace for better water flow. For this, it will be necessary to set up a bed of gravel 10 to 20 cm thick which will then be covered with another layer of gravel 5 cm thick.
But outdoors, using natural stone isn’t just limited to the patio. For a path from your portal to your front door, universal Rustic travertine tiles will blend into the environment and at the same time bring a touch of originality to your garden. The multi-format travertine can also be laid as a wall covering, pool surround and even as a single border or flower bed border!
Tip: For successful flower bed borders, remember to push well the stone into the ground and prevent weeds from making their way through.
Choosing travertine and its shades of aged beige
Multiple formats, okay, but why travertine? Because one of the finishes of travertine, making it aged beige, also called tumbled, is a stone that is highly appreciated, not only for its appearance but also for its quality and resistance. But its porosity makes its quality. It makes it anti-slip, and therefore perfectly adapted to humid or risky environments. The kitchen, the bathroom and even the shower can be covered with travertine!
This stone exists since the dawn of time. Nature has thus forged millennia, travertines with different nuances. From the lightest, like Light travertine, to the darkest, like Noce, everyone finds the shade that suits them! A characteristic difference is also the number and the importance of the holes, the Rustic is the most perforated travertine, which is not a sign of poor quality; on the contrary!
What does “aged” mean?
Aged, or tumbled, actually refers to the finish of the stone, which can be contrasted with softened. Beige travertine with an aged finish will be placed in gear with gravel or quartz sand with water. This gear will then begin a rotational movement, which will cause the stones, along with the gravel, to clash. To better imagine this, we can compare it to a washing machine, the principle is the same, except that the stone is not washed. These repetitive shocks break the freshly cut edges of the tiles, making them uneven. The top of the stone also becomes more irregular than initially, increasing its anti-slip capacity. This process gives the stone this rustic and Mediterranean aspect.
For a warm interior or exterior, aged beige travertine will delight you in all its forms! What more do you expect?
