Travertine is an excellent choice for pool decking, not only for its exquisite beauty but also for functional reasons that will keep you in the pool area for long periods. It is known for being slip-resistant and can handle a wide range of weather conditions. It is commonly used in both interior and exterior construction and it will surely give your pool deck an attractive appearance. Travertines are usually available in warm tones such as creamy ivory, beige, soft brown, taupe, and grey which can make them quite versatile to use for both outdoor and indoor design.

Limestone is also available in a range of colors, ranging from black to grey to warm beige, and it can be cut into a variety of shapes and sizes for your project.
