Marble: More Versatile Than You Realize
October 15, 2020
We’ve all swooned over marble countertops and maybe even a marble kitchen island or two. But with more and more homeowners looking for unique, totally “them” additions to their homes, marble is proving itself to be way more versatile than you probably realized. From adding decorative flair to helping you achieve that beautiful bright, white aesthetic, incorporating a variety of marble elements can really take the ambience of your home to the next level. Here are just a few ideas to jog your creativity and get you thinking about all the places you could incorporate marble into your home.
- Marble Kitchen & Bathroom Countertops
Why not start with the obvious? Marble has been a favorite natural material for countertops in both kitchens and bathrooms for ages. A truly timeless look, marble countertops exude elegance and can really tie a kitchen or bathroom together. Just be weary of marble’s porosity if you have small children or are prone to spilling red wine.
- Marble End Tables
Not ready to invest in something as huge as a full marble countertop? Marble end tables offer a perfect way to bring marble into your design without having to stretch your budget or stress about stains and durability. For an extra layer of personalization, grab one of our stone remnants and design your own unique table that’s tailored to your space.
- Marble Wall Panels
Looking to really make a room pop? Paneling a wall in marble tiles is a great way to create aesthetic interest in a kitchen, bathroom, or even a dining room. Opt for dark tile for a sleek, decadent look, or choose bright white tiles to brighten up a space and reflect more light.
- Marble Sink Basins
Nothing says luxurious like marble sinks! This would probably make the most sense for a bathroom sink, where food stains wouldn’t pose a threat. Go for a chunky, square marble basin for a modern look, or choose a wide, rounded basin for something more classic.
- Marble Floor Tiles
Floor tiles are nothing new of course, but when you swap traditional ceramic or linoleum tiles for marble, magic happens. Marble floors are surprisingly resilient and breathtakingly beautiful. Plus, your floor is a great place to be bold with veining, so you can opt for a more textured, aesthetically interesting marble slab than you might be comfortable with on a countertop.
- Marble Accent Wall
If you loved the marble wall panel idea, a full marble accent wall takes that idea to the next level. Use a marble accent wall to add opulence to any space. A veiny, black and white wall behind your bathtub, an earth-toned wall in your entertainment space, or even a classy gray marble accent piece in your bedroom will make your home feel totally luxurious and unique to your family.
