Bellstone Project Images
The Mocha travertine (honed & filled) in the images above were taken at an ocean front home in Maroubra. The travertine was beautifully laid with no grout joints in late 2010 and the outcome is stunning.
Mocha Travertine Tiles - Honed & Filled
These premium quality, crosscut travertine tiles exhibit beautiful light chocolate, caramel and beige colours.
The material is extremely dense and contains fewer holes than usual. These have been factory filled or tumbled and left unfilled as you can see from the images below (scroll down to the end of the page).
You may notice from the image of the display pieces below that the corners meet cleanly indicating the quality of the workmanship.
Stone Colour & Pattern Variation
Mocha travertine tiles like all stone tiles has variation in both colour and pattern, despite the fact that they have been factory sorted for both.
The challenge is to always achieve consistency in both colour and patterns but maintain the individuality of each piece that make up the whole.
This requires careful scrutiny in the factory so that rogue pieces are removed.The images below are Mocha H/F used in poolside entertainment area.
Mocha Travertine - Popular Uses
Mocha travertine is really tough and very dense so it can be used almost anywhere. The most popular uses are kitchens, bathrooms, living and entertainment areas.
Honed & filled surfaces are often preferred for 2 reasons:
(1) factory filled travertine has greater durability than grout filled tiles done by the tiler as grout discolours over time
(2) ease of cleaning - factory filled tiles have been honed off after filling so there are no dents or divots in the surface. The holes are barely noticeable and sometimes hard to detect.
Travertine - Sealing Recommended
This travertine is relatively light in colour and while it is unlikely to show dirt in an obvious way, coffee, tea, wine, oil and grease will all discolour the stone if ignored.
The most vulnerable spots are kitchens and entertainment & BBQ areas where food and drink spillages are more likely. Even a light, cooking grade, olive oil will leave a residue unless the stone is sealed. However, if you are a fastidious cleaner and careful cook, sealing might not be necessary.
Two coats of Sealer's Choice Gold penetrating sealer should provide excellent stain protection for many, many years. For more information go to, stone sealers.Make an enquiry
