In your home the materials that make up your surroundings are those that captivate you and help you love your home. Travertine is one of those finishes that can be used for countless ways throughout your interiors and looks beautiful regardless of how its used. From bathroom walls and kitchen backsplashes to gracing your outdoor pool deck, you will be surprised how travertine tile can beautify your home. Before you think that travertine is only for floors, think again. Look at these 5 luxurious ways to decorate with this gorgeous stone throughout your interiors.
- Choosing the right travertine for your room
- Make a grand entrance with travertine tile floors
If you’re looking to add a luxurious aesthetic to your grand foyer, look no further than travertine. Known for its uneven or chiseled qualities, travertine looks gorgeous in traditional and modern homes alike. Whether you choose to place travertine mosaic tiles or use large pavers. There aren’t many floor materials that can create a rustic yet sophisticated look to your entry.
- Bring out the nature of your design style
- Tips to remember when choosing travertine
One of the beauties of this gorgeous stone is its varied colors and patterns but one draw back is its ability to scuff and scratch easily. Depending on the surface finish a high polished travertine may resist better than a matte finish. Travertine also can be porous and shouldn’t be used where levels of oil and other liquids can soak into it and stain its beauty. Although just like marble and granite a tile specialist can direct you to what type of travertine stone tile is best for your project.
