We recently completed a master bathroom travertine stone installation in Windsor, Colorado. The bathroom was converted from regular builder’s grade tiled shower and square bathtub with carpeted flooring to a complete custom travertine bathroom with stone and glass inserts and an oval soaking tub.
We began by building a custom deck for the new tub and fabricating a larger base for a tiled shower floor. The shower was waterproofed with Schluter Kerdi and ditra was used for all the horizontal tile on the top of the tub deck and the floor.
The shower has 2×2 marble mosaics on the floor with 12×12 travertine tile on the walls and small stone and glass inserts throughout. The bathroom floor is 16 x 16 tile with the same stone and glass inserts.
The installation was finished with Laticrete’s SpectraLOCK grout in marble beige. Stain resistant and extremely durable, it will enable the installation to last a very long time with minimal maintenance. While all natural stone installations require special care and consideration, eliminating grout worries cuts that maintenance in half.
Travertine gives any room a classic, rich texture and feel. Characterized by fissures and small, irregular holes formed by carbon dioxide release in the limestone, travertine creates a very unique, classic appearance to any installation.
