Creating a Stunning Contemporary Kitchen with Marble Counters and Matching Backsplash
You could choose the finishes for your new kitchen by matching it to a home improvement show on TV or grabbing a picture off the internet. But that will end up looking ordinary. At The Countertop Shop, work with our experienced kitchen design experts and find a look that will set the trend for home fashion and match your personal style.
Mosaic Tile Backsplashes are Trending in the Past
Mosaic tiles became all the rage back in the 1970s and 80s as solid color laminates and quartz counters ruled the kitchen countertop industry. The mixed colors gave movement to a single note design. With the advent of natural stone counters becoming more popular, the excitement centered around bold veining, stripes, and pebbling in the countertop. Now the multiple colors, sizes, and shapes of a mosaic simply overload the room.
Unify Your Kitchen or Bath Appearance
While subway tiles have also become a go-to design option, they are pretty ordinary when you take in all the selections available. You can extend that beautiful canvas of marble from your countertop up the wall for an eye-catching yet coordinated design. It is your choice whether you simply install a six-inch backboard or run the stone up the wall behind your stove to make a centerpiece out of a custom exhaust hood. Paint colors can be matched to the undertones of the marble, drawing out the beauty into the rest of the space.
Select Two Slabs of Your Favorite Marble for a Stunning Style
Are you worried that you will not be able to find two slabs that will match? While it is true that every slab of marble is unique, if you find a pair of slabs that are cut from the same mountain face, the colors and striations will complement each other nicely. If you end up with extra stone, you may want to commission a tabletop for your entry, a set of cutting boards, or matching shelves to display your canisters or crystal
Add Extra Interest with a Contrasting Island
So, your kitchen renovation design went from light natural wood cabinets to white ones, and then you fell in love with an ocean of nearly white marble–is it too much of a good thing? If you are concerned that you will have an overabundance of a single color, think about adding a black or dark gray stone counter for your island. If you are into drama, that marble backsplash could match that island instead of the counters. It’s a design that will take center stage at your next dinner party.
