Want a bathroom that feels like it's carved out of stone? We love the material travertine. It's a type of limestone and it can create a sense of nature like none other...

You can get travertine material that is open or filled. The open material is full of open divets. We like it most because of its natural appearance. However, it can be harder to clean and the divets may tend to wear/ chip. The other option is to go with filled travertine. This is when the divets are filled in smooth. The result is a much more finished appearance that's uniform and easy to clean.

Wanna see some travertine in person? Check it out on the plaza of Lincoln Center. It's notoriously worn there, but it's outside, not in your bathroom!
