Forum Title: Setting Tavertine With Different Shades
Just bought some tavertine tile. This is my first time working with tavertine and i'm dealing with different shades in colors. Do i set these tiles randomly? Any suggestions?

I set quite a bit travertine, I always mix the pieces out of a few boxes as I'm setting it. I also stress to the client that this a natural stone product and every piece is different so expect some variation in color piece to piece.

Whenever I use a natural product be it wood, stone, etc. I always advise the customer that there will be variations in color. That being said, I always pull from an assortment of boxes which helps randomize the color variation. After a few rows, I check to see if there's maybe one tile that's way different from the others. If there is, I'll remove it and save it for later (or an area that isn't as visible) and install a tile closer in color.
