When you think about high-end, luxury kitchens, marble may be one of the first images that comes to mind. It has been used for centuries in building and construction. The main reason for this? Marble is absolutely beautiful!

How to Incorporate Marble Countertops Into Your Kitchen

Despite its beauty and elegance, marble is not usually the top choice for many homeowners because it can be pretty high maintenance. Marble countertops need to be sealed at least every six months. This material is also highly susceptible to heat, stains, scratches, and cracks. That being said, you can still find ways to incorporate marble into your kitchen design.

One way to incorporate marble countertops into your kitchen is to use them as an accent mixed in with your granite or quartz countertops. For example, you might not want a marble countertop near your stove, but you could use it on a kitchen island. If you do a lot of baking, marble is an excellent surface for working with dough for pizzas, pies, and pastries. If you have small children who eat at the island or if you do a lot of entertaining, marble countertops may not be the best choice for an island. A side countertop or a small bar would be a good place for a marble countertop.

Another idea for using marble in your kitchen, while maybe not a countertop, would be to use it in your backsplash. A marble backsplash can be a gorgeous focal piece and showstopper in a kitchen. You won’t have to worry about the wear and tear on it like you would a countertop, but you’ll still get the benefit of the rich beauty and elegance marble adds to any space. Whether you decide to go with marble countertops all around, as an accent, or as your backsplash, our team at Creative Granite Group would love to sit down with you and show you how you can incorporate marble into your dream kitchen.
