5 ways to incorporate marble into your kitchen
Stone has long been a popular choice for kitchens. The perennially-stylish, hardy material makes for an easy-to-clean, resilient surface for prepping, chopping and cooking – perfect for the modern kitchen.
Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that marble plus colour is too busy. If you consider that marble is, at its core, a natural material and as a result, is a neutral colour, it works perfectly with brighter colours.
Embrace the marble dark side
If you want the timeless style of marble in your kitchen, but you’re worried about keeping it fresh and modern, consider black marble. As we know, black is timeless and when used in natural materials, is striking but not overwhelmingly dark.
Don’t forget the basics
If black is too severe, take comfort in the fact that a stone-coloured marble is timeless and will likely work with whatever decor you already have in your kitchen. This kitchen shows us that even with considered decor accents, you can work the marble effect in and it will like a dream.
Now you see it, now you don’t
Having said all of this, marble doesn’t need to be the scene-stealer in your kitchen. You can pick a very neutral colour with barely-visible veining and allow your marble to become a simple hardworking kitchen surface.
Let’s not kid ourselves, marble is not cheap. If you’re going to splash out, and you want it to make a statement then we suggest embracing the ‘go big or go home’ mentality. This kitchen has worked in two different colours of marble, one very dark piece and a lighter one with exaggerated veining. The two clash in a really striking way and because the rest of the kitchen’s decor is minimal and clean, it’s not overwhelming at all.
