We built this house years ago, I simply don't remember the brand name of the tile. It is real travertine, called "Noce" travertine. I know it's still around as we still use it, but now buy it from Encore Flooring and More in Springdale, AR.

travertine / steam shower maintenance - Hi! I'm grateful for your professional responses. Considering glass tile or travertine for steam shower. Travertine will require some special maintenance in a few years? Any info regarding tile/stone maintenance? We are not high maintenance people. Hoping to make a smart choice. Thank you

I would ask your tile supplier and your tile installer for advice here. I've only had 3 requests for steam showers in all my homes over the years and they were all in real stone, which what travertine is, so they had to be sealed. I would recommend sealing the stone at least every 3 years. I know most sealers state it lasts longer, but better to be safe and with hot trapped steam things will wear down a bit faster than normal.

Thank you for insight on length of sealer duration. Best to you!

Placement depends on the shower design, but this one is under the seat. This allows us to have an access panel to it for repairs if needed. There is a small door just outside the shower door to the right.

Photo of shower from bathroom view? - Do you have a photo of what it looks like from inside the bathroom instead of inside the shower? Curious as to what the other side of the walls look like. Thanks.

No, this is a photo from "inside" the shower, its huge! The wall you can't see has two shower heads on it. The bench there hides the steam machine. The other side of the wall is drywall, painted to match what you see here where that door is. There are pics of the actual bathroom if you go to Celtic's page on Houzz, it's under the album "Clear Creek House". Thanks

I simply don't remember the exact name and the company that sold us the tile is no longer in business. This was years and years ago, but it was something simple like "clay" or "beige". Wish I could help more, sorry.

How do you keep the steam shower free from mold/mildew? - I noticed the fan you have installed in the ceiling. We have a steam shower and I find myself having to clean the travertine tiles/grout so often and we leave the shower door open 24/7. Is the fan the only thing you need to keep a steam shower free from mold/mildew?

To protect against mold the upper window tilts out allowing the steam to escape after use. That is why we installed a second fan right outside the shower door.

You will need air flow, fan won't be enough to dry out the space. As suggested above the door transom is a good idea and leaving it open will help create the air flow.

I've had clients use everything from gold, to tan, to even blue. It's really up to you. I prefer something in the tan family of colors myself, "camel back" from Benjamin Moore comes to mind.
