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.
The waterfall countertop trend is really strong right now so it’s about time we talked about it in more detail. A waterfall countertop is easily recognizable by the fact that it drops vertically down the sides instead of stopping abruptly at the edge of a cabinet or island. By doing that it creates a continuous flow and links the floor to the cabinetry in a fluid and natural manner. The impact that a waterfall countertop has on a kitchen (or a bathroom) can be observed on multiple levels.
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.
Clad from counter to ceiling with durable chocolate-brown porcelain tiles, this kitchen backsplash harmonizes with the creamy-hue onyx and oak-veneer cabinetry. To impart the look of natural stone, the backsplash was edged with dark-gray grout.
