How can I reduce the slipperiness of my tile floor?

My ‘travertine’ like ceramic tile is laid in the house and on the patio, but is extremely slippery when wet. How Can I reduce risk slipping?

    Use a rubber backed area rug. Wipe up spills immediately.

    There is product on the market which you apply with a roller to dull the surface. Check at your paint store.

    I used InvisaTread. A liquid you can buy at Home Depot or probably other hardware stores. Used this after breaking my leg slipping on my tile floor!

    @Johnsarat. Thanks for the tip about InvisaTread. We too have very smooth tile in the house we just bought. The entryway and guest bathroom are extremely slick when your shoes/feet are damp or if there is any moisture in the air. We knew there had to be a product out there to keep everyone safe!!!!

    Would area carpets be an option?

    Check out a spray called anti slip
    It doesn't change the color of anything, great for outdoors on decks.
