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.
There are many ways to highlight the beauty of a travertine backsplash. Sure, its design can be simple but it’s actually the material itself which stands out from all the others and adds beauty to the kitchen. One idea is to install LED light strips above the backsplash to emphasize the beautiful texture of the travertine tiles.
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.
Travertine backsplashes are interesting because they give kitchens a warm and inviting look thanks to their porous texture and the fact that they’re imperfect and irregular in so many ways which is exactly what makes them charming and special in the first place.
