Have you ever caught yourself staring at the intricate details of marble? You’re not alone. Marble is one of the most elegant materials you can choose for your home. Marble has always been associated with wealth and for its use in architecture. This natural stone can create a sense of sophistication and boost the atmospheric vibe of any room. When choosing marble, there are several ways to showcase its beauty.
Pairing with Neutral and Dark Hues
Pairing a light marble with neutral colors can really brighten a bathroom with minimal light. Whether you use marble for your tub, shower or wall, top this combination off with shiny steel and you’ll have a rich, rejuvenating palette.
Draw out the natural pattern of marble by contrasting it with dark hues. Try to choose a color that compliments the marbling. Choose a plain color like a smokey gray or charcoal for a dramatic effect.
If you don’t want to splurge on marble, make a sleek statement by incorporating it in small doses. A fireplace is often the main attraction of the room it occupies. Why not give it an upgrade? Get rid of the vintage brick and add a more modern look.
Mix and Match
Marble isn’t as durable as quartz or granite. Instead of placing marble on a surface that is heavily used, try placing it on a surface that isn’t prone to stains, scratches or other damage. Pairing a marble kitchen island with a granite countertop creates an eye-catching contrast. This will allow you to keep your marble safe from cooking and food prep areas.
The best way to keep your marble in pristine condition is to use it as a backsplash. A marble backsplash will act as a wonderful frame for the kitchen. Be sure to wipe off any splashes immediately to prevent stains.
