Hi tewy, saw you posted this a while ago - how'd the home build go? Personally, I'm a fan of travertine tiles but I'm not too sure about the pros and cons...were you able to find any more information about them?

Hi Keerthi, we are up to lock up with our home build. Had a few permit delays. I researched the travertine and decided that the care issues (coffee, red wine spills for example) can stain the floors even when treated. We do a lot of entertaining and don't want a flooring i am nervouus about. Expensive to get good quality also in our part of the world and cheaper means bigger wear and tear issues. So after more research and feedback and seeing it in situ we are having white washed wide plank engineered European Oak, oiled. Warmer in a Mediterranean climate too. Hope that helps.
