Travertine Silver Pool Paving

Travertine Silver Pool Paving – Outdoor Stone Tiles

Ricky from Lush Lifestyle Construction​ in Stawell, Victoria​ built and tiled this pool in Silver Travertine.

It makes an ideal paving for pool coping and surrounds as the stone does not reflect the sun and cause glare problems.

Silver Travertine is also a very dense form of Travertine making it long lasting in a harsh environment.

What is Travertine

Travertine is a pale honey colour, often with delicate banding. Many sculptors have used it as an easier-to-carve alternative to marble, and it is also cut into slabs and made into polished floors. The most famous travertine is Roman travertine, which gave the rock its name.

Travertine French Pattern Pool Project

Travertine French Pattern Pool – Outdoor Paving Project

Travertine French Pattern paver become a trendy choice in modern landscaping! Kris from KD Landscapes is half way through this backyard pool & patio project in Doncaster, Victoria. He is responsible for the tiling, decking and general landscape works. The stone paver used is Turkish ‪Travertine‬ ‪French pattern‬ in jumbo size.
This “oversize” pattern costs more than the standard size French pattern but the results are well worth it, especially when the tiling area is large.
This is because the jumbo size provides an exciting pattern and point of interest, however it is never “busy”.

You can see the pool coping tiles were perfectly installed in this outdoor paving project.

Travertine Tiles Pool Surrounds

Travertine Tiles – Pool Surrounds

Travertine tiles are great for pool surrounds, the surface of pavers have been tumbled with small stones to give an authentic antique look, however the natural small holes in the Travertine have been left unfilled.

The owner of this beach house has chosen Turkish Travertine pavers for his pool surrounds tiles. Because of Travertine’s light colours, it reflects the heat, keeping the stone cooler underfoot. Travertine Classico is not a pure white colour, otherwise it would be hard on the eyes on very bright sunny days.

Also in this project the landscaper chose straight edge 30mm Travertine pavers as pool coping tiles instead of traditional bullnose tiles, or even recently popular drop face tiles. This method will create different “antique & unfinished feel” to this pool project.
