5 Ways To Use Marble In Kitchen Interiors For A Beautiful Finish

Marble has been around for thousands of years and it’s also been incorporated into interiors for just as long too. As the hallmark of elegance, marble has the ability to transform any space and is especially impactful in a kitchen.

From dark marble tiles to white marble flooring, we love marble no matter its appearance. Smooth to the touch and the perfect addition to a contemporary aesthetic, marble is always an interior design win.

We take a look at 5 ways you can incorporate marble into a kitchen space for a polished, refined look.

1. Build A Marble Kitchen Island To Add A Contemporary Feel

Marble counter tops may be the obvious choice, but have you considered the impact of a stunning marble island?

Marble islands are the perfect way to create a centrepiece statement in a large, open kitchen space. Not only do they add style but they also double up in terms of practicality too.

A marble kitchen island can be used to place a sink in a kitchen space or to create a breakfast bar in a modern kitchen. Interior designers use kitchen islands to match an existing kitchen design or to add an additional design feature and more storage space.

In the case of marble, it serves as the perfect material to create a sleek island in the centre of a modern, luxury kitchen.

2. Contrast Your Marble Countertop With Other Natural Materials

The formation of the patterns found in the natural stone makes it a great option if you’re looking to create a sense of contrast in a kitchen. A marble countertop can look beautiful when used to complement dark wooden features, for example.

Much of interior design is focused on using materials that work in harmony with each other. Marble and wood are just one example of harmonious material choices and one that we particularly are fond of.

With the use of organic materials taking over 2022 interior design, now is the time to experiment and get creative with the use of marble countertops.

3. Install A White Marble Kitchen For A Minimalistic Look

Nothing says ‘modern’ more than a gorgeous marble countertop. Marble kitchens can look incredibly classy when refined and opting for white marble is sure to bring about a more minimal end result.

White marble has been used in interior design for aeons and it’s easy to see why; naturally beautiful and highly practical as a surface, white marble is in itself a reflection of purity.

Whether used across marble worktops or to design a unique marble sink, white marble is always going to be the epitome of elegance – especially in a minimalist’s kitchen.

4. Consider A Marble Backsplash For A Polished Touch

The natural material of marble makes it highly durable and an excellent option for a backsplash. Marble kitchens range in style, but one trend we are seeing emerge more and more is the use of grey marble as a backsplash.

Not only is marble easy to clean it’s also highly heat resistant which makes it great to use in a kitchen. The impact of incorporating a white veining marble countertop with a contrasting black marble backsplash can bring about a simple yet honed finish.

5. Choose A Checkered Marble Floor To Create A Classic Aesthetic

Finally, we are moving our focus to kitchen floors and the use of the stone as flooring. The classic marble kitchen always had a checkered floor and this year has seen a resurgence in checkered floor popularity.

Whether paired with marble countertops or as a standalone interior feature, the marble checked floor is a quintessential addition to any British kitchen.
