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.
You can witness the minimalism and beauty of the waterfall countertop in this remodeled kitchen which has a chic island with wooden storage spaces and built-in appliances and which is wrapped in a crisp white counter which drops down both sides.
If you’re planning on having a countertop made out of a material which you love the waterfall design allows you to put an emphasis on it and to make the material stand out more. Of course, that means a considerably higher price.
The thickness of a waterfall countertop can vary a lot. This one, for example, is quite thin and that gives it a sleek and lightweight appearance as opposed to a think counter which looks very solid and heavy.
