Marble has been a timeless, classic choice in both art and design for thousands of years. It’s a luxurious, elegant material that stands the test of time, and is one material that truly looks like a work of art in just about any application, including countertops, backsplashes, and so much more. Not only that, when marble is properly cared for, it’ll last nearly forever.
We often think of classic white with grey veining when we think of marble, and for good reason. This coloring evokes images of snow-topped mountain ranges. Not only that, white marble is a great choice for all-white spaces; its luxury and depth bring a warmth to the room, and prevent it from feeling cold or sterile. If you choose a marble with veining, it can be blended, swirled or linear, creating movement and visual interest that’s ideal for large-scale uses like countertops or backsplashes.
While white may be a classic choice for marble, this material is available in other colors as well. A brown marble with dark of cream veining brings enormous depth and warmth to any room, and with a sleek, smooth sheen, will be right at home in a contemporary, high-end design. Or, choose a marble with veins of beiges and golds, for a more traditional look that fits in with a variety of other materials. This is an excellent choice for kitchens with hardwood flooring and stainless steel appliances.
Marble is an ideal option for just about any application, from countertops and backsplashes to feature walls and flooring, and so much more. In fact, some marble slabs can withstand the elements and be used outdoors as well as indoors. If you’ve chosen marble for your home, you know that you’ve not only surrounded yourself with luxury; you’ve also chosen a material that will stand the test of time and will never go out of style.
