If there's one design trend you can always count on to instantly elevate a space, no questions asked, it's marble. Whether you use it on your floors, in the shower, on your sink, or the walls, this classic material not only adds beauty to space, but it is also easy to maintain and very durable. It isn’t prone to degradation and can last for hundreds of years.

Are you planning to give your home a marble treatment? Here are some excellent ways to incorporate marble into your home design.


1. Kitchen backsplash

Marble is a great statement-making material for a kitchen backsplash. It can provide a classic yet modern touch at the same time, and add a luxurious look to your kitchen.

While we typically think of marble as crisp and white, this bold open kitchen that features a black marble backsplash proves that black marble can be just as sophisticated and elegant. The white veins offer a stark contrast that is incredibly striking and eye-catching, while the glossy black kitchen island adds a dramatic moody vibe to the space.

2. Kitchen island

A marble kitchen island is ideal if you want to give your kitchen a boost of personality.

In this modern kitchen, the white marble countertop creates a clean and sophisticated space without a riot of bold colours. It pairs perfectly well with the white subway tile backsplash and the ash grey kitchen cabinets.

4. Flooring

Marble flooring can add an extra layer of sophistication to any room. This material works well in living rooms, bedrooms, and larger spaces as marble stones have the ability to absorb any heat, therefore, cooling the space naturally.
