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.
A waterfall countertop is an important focal point for the entire space it’s in, be it a kitchen or a bathroom. It’s a centerpiece which puts on display the beauty and uniqueness of the material it’s made of but which can also put an emphasis on texture or color.
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.
Wood is a more forgiving material, one that’s more accessible to DIYers compared to stone. Of course, that doesn’t mean anyone can make a waterfall countertop, even if wood is the material of choice. In fact, creating a fluid a continuous design can be pretty tricky even if you’re working with a single huge wood slice.
