Travertine Basins would make a great choice if you want to add something to your bathroom that improves its quality esthetically speaking. If you do not know what travertine is, you should realize that this material falls under the category of natural stone. It looks similar to marble but both are similar with and different from one another. Both stones are limestone but are created through different processes. But the point is not what makes the two different but what makes travertine a great material for a bathroom basin. The most important things about a travertine basin are its look and durability.
Travertine Basins are pretty to look at. Similar to marble, there is this veining on the surface of the stone that when carved into shapes such as a basin it offers structure and texture that appear to be lush and expensive. A travertine basin would look great when installed in a bathroom with either minimalistic style or traditional one. It all boils down to how you can create a balanced composition in the process. It looks simple and pretty straightforward that it complements a modern bathroom yet rich in textures that a traditional bathroom may benefit from it.
Travertine Basins are of high durability. Being a type of stone, it can withstand moisture buildup and water damage. But it is also heavy, making it important for you to use it with an equally durable vanity unit. You would also have to use cleaning agents with soft formula as high acidity may react badly with it. Also, do not ever scrub it using a harsh brush as scratches may appear. A travertine basin would do just fine when cleaned with hot soapy water. Opt for soft material instead to scrub it such as with nylon scrubber to avoid scratches.
