Travertine porcelain stoneware floors: indoor and outdoor solutions

Travertine porcelain stoneware floors: indoor and outdoor solutions

Travertine, a sedimentary limestone rock, crossed the centuries as a testament to elegance and durability. From majestic monuments such as the Colosseum in Rome to modern homes, it has always found a place in the world of architecture. 

The colour of travertine varies naturally, depending on the impurities present during its formation. Colours can vary from white, to light beige, to reddish brown. Travertine may have veins or stripes, thereby each slab has a unique appearance.

However, in this article we will not focus on natural travertine, but on the innovative interpretation of this material: the travertine-effect porcelain stoneware floor. This material skilfully captures the distinctive shades and veining (from whites to beige) of travertine, providing a practical and versatile alternative to traditional natural travertine.

In the contemporary tile industry, technological innovations unveil new expressive possibilities, where porcelain stoneware becomes a medium capable of capturing the essence and beauty of nature. Travertine, with its rich history and distinctive colour, is one of the materials that has been masterfully reinterpreted in this way.

Travertine effect stoneware stands out as a pioneer of these new solutions. Porcelain stoneware travertine tiles exude not only the elegance and naturalness of natural stone, but also its distinctive veining and authentic texture. In this way you can enjoy the refinement of travertine without having to face the challenges of maintenance and durability typical of natural stone.

Travertine in nature

In nature, there are different types of travertine, each with its own unique characteristics, including Navona travertine, Roman (Tivoli) travertine and silver travertine. However, one of the most distinctive is Rapolano travertine, a particular type of travertine that is quarried in Rapolano, near Siena in Tuscany. Its special colour characteristics make this stone unique. Its nuances can give projects a modern yet classically elegant look. It was precisely these peculiarities that provided the inspiration for our Omnia collection, in the Rapolano Beige finish, as can be seen in the picture. Its warm hue and delicate texture make it perfect for both indoor and outdoor use, giving any room a traditional and natural touch.

In the picture, we can see the future headquarters of Ceramiche KEOPE, an example of the use of travertine-effect stoneware from the Omnia collection in the Tivoli Ivory colour. This variant, in particular, enhances the typical details of travertine. The layers typical of natural stone emerge delicately in this shade. Ivory is a light and luminous shade, where milky white combines perfectly with a particular warm grey tone, which becomes more intense and defines the veins.


Choosing the right floor can radically transform a room, whether it is the comfort of your interior or the outdoor space where you like to relax and enjoy nature. The collections we have explored, such as the essence of Rapolano travertine or the light shades of beige travertine of Percorsi Frame, have the power to enhance a room, offering a perfect balance between beauty and functionality.
