Choosing the best material for your kitchen countertops can be tough. There are so many options nowadays, from natural stone to wood to stainless steel. Anchorage, AK’s Rino’s Tile & Stone offers all of this and more. If you are strongly considering a stone surface, they recommend travertine as a great option to explore.

Travertine is a type of limestone deposited by mineral springs. It’s fibrous and naturally exists in lighter hues, such as white, tan, cream, and even some rusty reds. It’s often used in construction, where it’s combined with cement before it is smoothed and polished, making its surface more uniform like granite or marble. Available in tile or slab forms, its natural look is a great option for countertops.

Travertine is also a good light reflector, making your kitchen very bright and inviting.

Even as a cheaper alternative to marble, travertine adds a sophisticated element to your home. The earthy color options are great for kitchens and bathrooms with a more rustic, neutral design, or rooms that have an antique feel. The veining in the designs adds to the earthiness, and travertine countertops are available in polished, matte, brushed, or tumbled finishes, depending on how much shine you prefer.

When it comes to countertop installation, travertine is much easier to cut and shape than other materials, making odd shapes and small spaces easy to set. Lighter and less expensive than marble, it is also eco-friendly.
