Travertine stone kitchen backsplashes can transform the look of your cooking space.

A travertine backsplash is a neutral, warm-colored stone that looks sophisticated and elegant in any kitchen space. Acting as a backdrop rather than the focal point of a kitchen, a travertine backsplash is the ideal option for someone who is seeking a simple finished look in a kitchen area.

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 an assortment of gold, cream, gray, white and brown colors. Mix them up to create an eclectic, mosaic design, or choose one color to keep the style simple and understated. Some travertine tiles are available in brick or subway tile styles. Choose these designs in a cream or white color to complement a classic kitchen area.

If you are seeking a rustic look for your kitchen backsplash, then you might want to consider mixing together broken pieces of rust and brown colored travertine stones to create an earthy backsplash. This backsplash style would pair especially well with natural or light wood kitchen cabinetry.
