    Default Travertine Wall Tiles

    Looking for some advice here .
    We are just about to fit out a new en suite some 32 sqr meters ( walls ) shower / bath /
    The walls are all block / rendered built 6 months ago ..... a bit slow in getting this bit sorted
    We already have Brazilian slate tile floor - laid in a utility area's.
    Like the idea of stone / looking at travertine .........
    1/ is it a good choice of a stone for shower / etc - or should we perhaps think about marble ? - or another stone ? slate is to dark.
    2/ Should we go for polished or tumbled
    What's your advice

    As long as your shower / wet area is suitably water proofed then the rest really is down to your personal choice, you may get a bit of inspiration here ....
    Many more stones available than you would think, some at a price though !

    Look forward to seeing them, don't you love it when you get something a bit different to work with apart from the run of the mill ceramics ?

    Your better off with tumbled marble or polished the surface is tighter than travertine.........
