Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to finally renovate your kitchen or bathroom and give it a new, vibrant look? There has never been a better time to do it. The selection of beautiful, long-lasting marble for bathroom and kitchen countertops is greater now than ever before.
The Wonderful World of Marble
Marble comes from quarries all over the world, including countries like Brazil, China, India, Italy and Scandinavia. That accounts for the wide range of colors and patterns that marble can have. No two slabs are exactly alike.
A Multitude of Colors and Patterns
While white is still the most common color for marble countertops, many homeowners are stepping outside the box by using colored marble. Some even select the marble first and then decorate the entire room around the color of the countertops.
One of the reasons that people choose marble is because of the variety of colors. Most of us have seen white or black marble bathroom and kitchen countertops. It’s also available in a multitude of other shades, each with their own unique characteristics.
Swedish Green marble usually has distinctive patterns of veins for a rich, multi-layered look. Italy Golden Siena marble adds a warm feeling to any kitchen or bath. Some slabs have distinctive blue or brown veins that make for a nice contrast and can be brought out by your choice of curtains, flooring, wall art and/or linens. You can also find marble in many distinctive shades of blue, brown and grey.
Marble is known for its unique and beautiful patterns that add depth to its color. You can choose a slab with subtle flecks or prominent veining depending on whether you want the look of a solid color or a unique design to add additional color and depth to your countertops.
Don’t Be Afraid To Be Bold
Some people hesitate to use colored marble for their bathroom and kitchen countertops because they think that a traditional white will appeal to more prospective buyers if and when they sell their home. However, unless you’re planning to sell in the immediate future, why not have what you want? Besides, beautiful colored marble countertops accentuated by decor in complementary colors can make your home stand out to homebuyers.
