Return to Stone: Why Homeowners are Falling Back in Love with Marble Countertops

| | Tips

While granite and quartz have both been hot commodities on the interior design scene for some time now, marble is a material that has made a huge comeback only recently. From a beautifully veined marble waterfall countertop on a kitchen island to wraparound kitchen countertops; marble is a hugely covetable look these days. And, as experts in installing marble countertops for Wayzata and the surrounding areas, we would like to tell you a few reasons why.

For one, white is a huge color trend right now and marble offers lots of it. Don’t underestimate the power of classic white marble. White is an interior design favorite, and with good reason. It is clean, crisp and works well with a wide variety of aesthetics and concepts. Even white marble that has sharply contrasting veining is extremely versatile and offers an elegant touch to any room in the home. Whether you want to pair it with something light in the kitchen or contrast it against darker colors in the bathroom, white marble countertops deliver many options and earn few complaints.

Grey is another color trend this year where marble is a star player. Grey marble can deliver almost as many choices as white. Grey fits with the ever-popular industrial and mid-century modern design trends as well.

Perhaps the most telltale characteristic of marble is its veining, which offers a wonderful opportunity to play with colors. Gray marble with black veining, or black marble with gray veining can then be mixed and matched with a variety of color schemes. 

Or, if you love the look of marble but are looking for a more affordable solution, you could also install marble on only part of the counter surface, such as a center island or baking station.

Marble countertops have been seeing a resurgence in kitchens and bathrooms all over the United States. Both in its classic white and in a variety of colors with striking streaks and unique style, marble countertops offer classic elegance and old world charm essential for farmhouse style kitchens and other popular design trends.
