Kitchen counters are an excellent place to begin incorporating marble. This may be an age-old practice, but the marble hasn’t lost its luster amidst today’s plethora of countertop options. Natural marble has an unrivaled pattern, and each slab is unique, making your countertop one-of-a-kind.

Accent Walls

Did you put your heart and soul into decorating a room in your home but still feels like it lacks a “Wow Factor”? 

Instead of returning to your favorite home decor store and scanning the aisles for that perfect piece, consider adding an accent wall!

Furniture

However, choosing the right marble piece is a matter of personal taste. In dining areas, for instance, bright white marbles make a classic, luxe statement. Meanwhile, colored marbles can add a splash of personality to your living room or bedside table.

Floors

If you consider marble flooring for your home, you may be amazed at the sheer volume of options available. Not only do you have a plethora of colors to choose from, but marble, as a natural stone, also comes in a variety of finishes.
