Summer is coming, and now is the perfect time to be thinking about your perfect outdoor hangout spot. Is it around the pool? Maybe it’s out on the patio. Wherever you choose to spend your summer days, do so in style with travertine pavers.
Travertine pavers add elegance and appeal to your outdoor space, while keeping it safe and cool. Here’s a closer look at what travertine is, and why it is the perfect paver for your patio or around your pool.
It is a natural stone that is usually found in hot springs, natural pools, and waterfalls, among many other natural sites. It is very durable, and can be used in a variety of ways. Travertine also can stand the test of time; even the Romans decided to use this stone to build the Colosseum!
Travertine is often used indoors, but there are several advantages for you if it is utilized in an outdoor space.
This is a very porous stone. Using this for around your pool allows the kids, grandkids, even the puppies to splash and cannonball in the water, with little risk of puddles forming around the pool.
Because of how absorbent this stone is, it has a different texture than other natural stones. This slightly rugged texture lowers the risk of injury around the pool. No more worrying about the kids running!*
* But seriously…no running by the pool.
Travertine is a natural insulator as well. This is why it is perfect for your patio or pool!
It is cool to the touch, so there is no need to worry about little toes burning up like they could if you took a trip to the beach on a hot summer day.
Your feet can beat the heat in style, as there are a variety of colors and cuts of travertine as well. Travertine also comes in coping, perfect for the edge of a pool! You can relax on the side of the pool comfortably without it being too hot or rough on you.
