Traditional Travertine BathroomTraditional Bathroom, Portland
I love how one can take a singular material and use it in different applications in the same space. It provides texture and interest. That's what our clients wanted to for this master bathroom - travertine, travertine, travertine. And that's what they got.
It's also amazing what we can do with glass these days, like how the shower stall and bathtub can be joined but not feel separate. Gorgeous.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
TravertineThe biggest issue people have with cleaning and maintaining a travertine shower is soap scum. Soap scum can damage tiles and ruin the look of a travertine shower. Also, hard water deposits can also start to accumulate in a travertine shower. "A travertine-tiled shower is a constantly wet surface, so upon installation, I strongly urge people to apply the best sealer that money can buy to protect their travertine shower," says Lichlyter. For tough stains: Lichlyter recommends zero-pH cleaners, which are readily available in home improvement stores. Stay away from: "Commercial cleaners that smell good but have petroleum in the ingredients," says Lichlyter. "Petroleum sits on tile grout and causes residue and a dirty-looking appearance." Also avoid acidic substances like vinegar as well as abrasive cleaners and dish soap containing citrus oil.
