So you’ve decided to go all in with marble. You’ve found a few slabs that you love, and you’re brushing off all the naysayers around you. Excellent. Now, you’re just trying to figure out how you can wallpaper your entire life with this marble. Maybe you’d even consider sleeping on a marble bed just so that you can be near it’s cool perfection 24/7. Well, I’m certainly not going to judge.
In fact, if you’re looking for more beautiful ways to incorporate marble into your kitchen design (that go beyond just using it as a countertop), then you’ve come to the right place. Today, I’m sharing 9 Kitchen Marble Ideas to help you create your very own marble haven.
As you’re contemplating these ideas, keep in mind that marble can feel cold if you don’t balance it out with a lot of warm textures. If I’m working on a large kitchen design, I always try to bring in wood countertops/chopping blocks, wood floors, warm metal finishes, etc., to offset the use of lots of stone. I think this is particularly important when working with double islands or even extra large islands. Try to break up the materials a bit. Vary the heights. Using the same marble (or any stone, really) on a lot of surfaces will make the kitchen feel hard and cold.
On the flip side, nothing stops me in my tracks quite like a stunning slab of marble. When used with a thoughtful design approach, the impact of a well-selected marble slab can be breathtaking. With that in mind, it’s easy to see the appeal of using that beautiful marble for more than just countertops.
