A travertine backsplash is an elegant option for a kitchen which is meant to feel homely and welcoming and which blends common and simple materials in ways that simply make sense.
It’s natural to associate travertine backsplashes with rustic, traditional or farmhouse kitchens. That’s where they look most at home but that doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t successfully incorporate the trend into a modern setting. You just need to find the right balance of textures, colors and materials.
This traditional kitchen found a great way to direct the attention towards its travertine backsplash. That has to do with the backsplash ledge which serves as a sort of built-in shelf for storing small everyday items or for displaying things on.
Marble is sophisticated, elegant and classy so what better way to put the spotlight on it than with a waterfall island counter? Since the material is the focal point, the design of the island can be minimalist and focused on practicality.
