I need help! I have been told that you should not lay travertine with grout lines. I have seen it and it always looks like so much dirt collects in the thin lines. It's also very expensive to have done. Is there anything wrong with doing it with grout lines and is it less expensive to lay?

If you are laying tile there is no way around not having grout lines (unless you are buying a tightly woven netted mosaic-see pic). This tile looks tumbled which would mean it HAS to have larger than normal grout lines. If the tile has a straight edge you can space them closer together, but if you don't fill in with grout then you will have an even bigger problem with 'junk' getting inbetween the airspace. Hope this helps.

Thanks. I'm thinking of a grout line that is sort of obvious verses the kind that looks super thin. I guess it is a design decision.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Travertine is another commonly-encountered stone. It's often sold as marble or limestone, even though it's neither. Travertine's a sedimentary rock composed of calcite, and as such it's a good bit softer than its limestone kin. It's nearly impossible to keep a shine, but once it settles into its native, matte finish, few materials offer the warmth that travertine does.
