To seal travertine or not to seal?
I have read several postings about using travertine in bathrooms. I am planning on remodeling my bathroom and using travertine in the shower and on the floor of my bathroom. I am very confused about the issue of sealing. Some postings suggest not sealing yet I have been told it is very important to use a sealer to prevent it from taking water and to make it easier to maintain. I have also heard that certain finishes don't require to be sealed such as a hone-finished, is this true? Can anyone explain their point of why you would and would not seal travertine in bathrooms??? Thanks!
