A brother of limestone, travertine has rustic appeal that can work in a number of kitchen tile backsplash designs.
A neutral, warm-colored stone, travertine will lend an understated and sophisticated appeal to an elegant in any kitchen space. Acting instead as backdrop rather than the focal point of a kitchen, a backsplash made from travertine tiles is a prime choice for the homeowner who is looking for a simple finish to his or her kitchen area.
Choose the Best Kitchen Backsplash
Travertine is a form of limestone, making it a porous and semi-soft material for a backsplash. This is not a problem, but it will require a coat or two of sealant to help keep mold and mildew at bay.
Travertine tiles are available in a wide variety of cream, red, gray, white and brown colors. If you are seeking a contemporary design, then you may want to consider placing the tiles in a mosaic pattern. Brick-style travertine tiles work well in a rustic kitchen, and square travertine tiles mixed with diamond-shaped tiles can work well in a Tuscan-inspired kitchen. Choose these tiles in a cream or beige color to complement this kitchen style.
If you are seeking a county look for your kitchen backsplash, then you might want to consider mixing together broken pieces of rust- and brown-colored travertine stone tiles to create a down-home backsplash. This backsplash style would work well with a kitchen island made from reclaimed barn doors or kitchen cabinetry that is faded green.
