When it comes to the world of interior design, there are few materials quite as stunning and enchanting as marble. While the use of this natural stone in architectural design can date back thousands of years, there’s nothing like incorporating a clean structure of marble in your kitchen for a fresh and modern look.
With the right elements and color schemes in place, designing your kitchen with a touch of marble is enough to evoke a high-end feeling. The individuality found in every piece of marble can transcend your space into a scene of luxury and sophistication.
Here are our top five favorite kitchen design concepts that incorporate marble and are sure to complement your space.
One of the most opted for marble kitchen designs is one that is clean and minimalistic. Going the minimalism approach can genuinely capture the striking beauty of the stone. Having limited additional pieces can avoid overshadowing the marble, allowing it to be noticed.
If you go for marble structures with a white background, incorporate other white elements such as your cabinets, chairs, and appliances. Incorporating sharp shapes using the cabinets, décor objects, and chairs is a great way to facilitate a modernist look. In addition, we’d recommend going for darker flooring to add a clean contrast to the space.
2. Organic/Natural Elements
Wood and stone pair beautifully in the kitchen together. Earthy and organic elements can liven up the marble in your kitchen while also giving a slightly minimalistic feel. This approach is best for bright, open-concept kitchen designs, so the space doesn’t feel too busy.
Try incorporating a wood-grain and white marble island for a natural contrast between elements. If you already have bright hardwood floors, marble countertops will be the perfect addition to complement their organic ambiance and natural hue.
Consider placements of few, minimal organic objects such as plants or bamboo kitchen items. These can further compliment the combination of these two natural materials.
We discussed the use of contrasting elements in the previous two kitchen designs using a muted style. But going for a dramatic juxtaposition can be just as attractive. Pairing high-contrast light marble with clean dark elements such as black cabinets can make a striking impact on your kitchen space.
Try going for a softer material for your backsplash to provide a sense of relief between the two opposing elements. This way, the space won’t feel as stark or overwhelming at first glance.
Going monochromatic can create a soft and warm atmosphere that fades seamlessly into another space. Monochrome visually reflects colors in shades of limited colors or hues. This can help make a space feel unified and engaging once it encapsulates you.
Consider layering a grayscale marble island or countertop with a monochrome backsplash or wall. This can complement multiple textures and shades found elsewhere in the room as well.
5. Glossy Finish
For a moody yet glamorous look, having a polished, dark marble structure can add a daring dash of drama to your kitchen. These sorts of kitchen designs can provide a bold yet airy feel for those of us looking to do something a little more adventurous with our space.
With black accents, consider sharp, geometric shapes with your decor. Low-hanging lights with a glossy gold finish can also emphasize the drama in your space. Having matted wooden flooring will provide just enough softness in contrast, rather than going over the top with glossy tiles.
