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.
While wood will have a slight variation in color on it’s own, there’s nothing that says you have to stick with one wood when covering your kitchen floor. When there rest of your kitchen is modern and sleek, a variegated hardwood floor will bring that homey warmth you want.
Sometimes there’s just no hope to bring a wood floor back to its former glory. But rather than replacing it altogether, give it a thick coat of paint. You’ll keep the texture that a hardwood floor provides while giving your kitchen a whole new look. Just make sure it’s the exterior paint that’s hard as nails and will last you through all the wear and tear.
