Custom Kitchens: Advice for Designing around Common Marble Countertop Styles

Home Improvement

A beautiful kitchen makes for a beautiful home. Where else can you prepare food, pull out your laptop while you eat, or serve snacks and beverages to your friends and family? When you design your kitchen, you should insist on only the best. That is why you should invest in marble countertops from Alpharetta. Marble is the ultimate countertop material for a variety of reasons, including its versatility, durability, and resistance to the rigors of everyday use. 

For best results, try designing your kitchen with neutral countertops first. Slabs of marble will sit at eye level and usually attract the eyes first. Every other style choice should follow it, matching and playing off the natural coloring of the stone. Marble is available in many colors and styles, including these 4 popular choices. Read the style advice below so you can design the perfect kitchen around your choice of marble.

Smooth, White Marble

Pure, clean, white marble will glimmer in the sunlight, centering a kitchen you cannot take your eyes from. For best results, pair white slabs of marble with white countertops and walls. Leave your windows exposed and install stylish light fixtures so your marble can shine in the light it loves. Don’t worry about the final result looking boring. You can introduce other colors in the backsplash and flooring. Try lining these areas with stone tile that matches the veining or freckles in the marble, such as gray, a common secondary color in white marble. Also, be ornate with textured detailing like crown molding and elegant cabinet trim.

Textured, Light Brown Marble

Often mixed with gorgeous reds and gray-blues, earthy light brown marble looks freshly mined from the quarry. Play off this natural, rustic appearance with flat-panel wooden cabinetry with a natural finish. You can even be bohemian and contemporary with exposed shelving in a rustic finish. Paint the walls a bold, exciting color, then finish the floor with polished concrete. The result will be a true chef's kitchen. 

Pearly, Off-White Marble

Off-white marble has a clean, polished appearance but includes versatile tones like blush pink and soft, subtle blue. These hints of color give you the freedom to go in many directions. Try building an artful kitchen with simple, black cabinetry, glass door panels, metallic lighting, exciting patterned wallpaper, and contemporary decor. Use the hints of color in your marble to inspire the color choices throughout the kitchen.

Veined, Dark Brown Marble

Rich, mature, and complex, dark brown marble often includes coffee-like tones with hints of white and streaks of red veining. All of these colors lend themselves to traditional kitchens. Hardwood flooring, elegant and detailed cabinets, and warm-hued wall paint will all complement the multi-hued marble and cohabitate nicely. You can be generous with decor for a comfortable, homestyle kitchen that will practically make your stomach growl.

Marble certainly forms in a variety of colors, but these are 4 common and popular varieties of marble. Not only would all of the above kitchens enjoy the benefits of practical marble countertops from Alpharetta, but they would look elegant and unique, too. Design a kitchen that you and your guests will admire by starting the design process with the perfect piece of elegant marble.
