Travertine is less popular than marble or other materials and it’s exactly this obscure nature that inspired us today to take a closer look at it. Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs and is often used as a building material. The Colosseum is the largest building in the world constructed mostly out of travertine but this material’s usefulness isn’t limited just to large structures which brings us to the main subject of the article: travertine backsplashes.
When an older home already has a wood floor, sometimes you just need a good refresher to bring back it’s old glory. Sand down the wood floor in your kitchen and use a mix of stain and sealant to give it a checkerboard pattern. While still having that old diner nostalgia, it will be much more durable than laminate or tile.
Travertine is one of the several natural stones often used for paving patios and garden paths, being appreciated for its beautiful natural texture, simplicity and durability. Although it’s less common to see this material being used in interior designs, there are many interesting ways in which the tiles can add character to a space.
Sometimes a small tweak can great increase the usefulness of a traditional item, and we love how these Leicht cabinets pull out instead of opening in the traditional way. The Topos/Stone cabinetry is very attractive thanks to the rich contrast between the materials. A modern stone finish is tempered by the warmth of the wood featured in the open display columns. The glow of the wood is further enhanced by the lighting that is incorporated in the shelving.
