Step Out of the Box with Colored Marble Countertops


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.

  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
