Size Variety

When unpacking a box of Cottage Standard Cut, you’ll find the stone pieces come in a variety of heights: 2 inches, 3 inches, 4 inches, and 6 inches. This means you have plenty of options to create a visually appealing pattern. 

The larger stones make up a larger percentage of the box, while the smaller pieces make up a smaller percentage. In the box, larger stones account for a higher percentage of its volume, while smaller pieces constitute a lower percentage. This allows for your stone pattern to have a foundation of larger stones with smaller stones to add intricate detail.

Color Blend

From beiges and deep browns to cool grays and crisp whites, this stone offers a wide palette to work with. The beauty of this color variety is that it allows you to easily complement your home’s existing interior design. Whether you’re going for a rustic, earthy vibe or a sleek, modern look, there’s a shade of cottage standard cut travertine that will fit right in. Plus, by mixing and matching different colors, you can create stunning patterns that add depth and character to your space. Imagine a backsplash that blends warm beiges and cool grays, or an accent wall that showcases the full spectrum of colors found in Cottage Standard Cut Travertine.

Laying a Stone Pattern

A helpful step in installing Cottage Standard Cut Travertine is to lay out a stone pattern before adhering the stone to a prepared surface. When laying a stone pattern, you want to arrange the stone pieces layer by layer, careful to break up any horizontal or vertical lines. Having a horizontal line run across a pattern would cause the design to fall flat. Using different sizes of pieces to break up these lines adds dimension to the overall stone pattern.

When laying a stone pattern, you also want to blend colors to add depth to the design. Pairing beige pieces next to white or gray shades creates a nice visual contrast. By mixing and matching colors and sizes of the stone, you can achieve a design that is all your own.
