Marble Kitchen Backsplash Trend

Last Updated On

The marble kitchen backsplash trend is still very hot. If you’re planning a full renovation of your kitchen, or just seeking out new designs to put a fresh twist on your existing fixtures and fittings, you will certainly want to consider incorporating natural stone as your backsplash material. You’ll do it not only for a crisp new aesthetic approach and use of the most lustrous natural stones but as a pristine yet practical solution to a necessary part of your kitchen.

Claim Extreme Beauty, and Guaranteed Practicality in an All-New Way

Marble kitchen backsplashes are not famous for their status as talking points. They have far more potential. We can use this potential usually simply blending into the white or grey tiling of their wider culinary surroundings. While we’re certainly not condemning the sleek and cohesive look achieved through soft tiling color choices, and the same material for backsplash use, marble’s eye-catching beauty can make even an area so small as a backsplash stand out as a statement in your kitchen.

Coupled with the fact that it is largely waterproof, easy to wipe clean, and heatproof, marble is emerging as the material of choice for backsplash boards in 2021. Not to mention, since the Marble Systems marble backsplash tiling is so easy to install efficiently, if you feel you want a new twist, you can choose a brand new stone for an all-new look whenever you please.

How to Use a Marble Kitchen Backsplash in Your Interior

For a subtle statement, that is durable enough for its beauty to last, and to protect your walls from moisture and heat, marble tiling is the obvious choice, and has been that of designers for many years. But the delicate gleam of natural stone can be overshadowed when partnered with bolder materials, especially when used in smaller installations such as a splash-back. Having said this, the beautiful white and grey tones available at Marble Systems offer a range of sumptuous yet simple hues that look at home, when styled with natural and bright furniture, and all-metal fixtures.

A Note From our Designers

Earthy palettes can create a warm and relaxing living space. However, using too many similar tones can make your room feel a little drab. To avoid this, balance out the space with a combination of warm and cool tones. And break up dark colors with accent shades. Indoor plants are ideal for adding a pop of color while still keeping that natural vibe. Finish the look with plenty of textured soft furnishings and accessories.
