With marble’s subtly beautiful sparkle and beauty, there are many classy ways the marble can be incorporated into the home décor to brighten up the home. Marble is elegant, polished and sophisticated. It instantly elevates the look of the space, adds richness to it and has been around through the centuries. Formed by recrystallized carbonate minerals with the final stone showing unique ‘veins’ or striations, its name is derived from a Greek word that means ‘shining stone’.
Marble Kitchen Countertops
Kitchen counters are a great place to start with incorporating marble. Even if your current one is granite, it can be replaced by a marble stone, in a rough textured or smoothened finish. Marble counters unlike granite, have to be maintained regularly, cleaned properly and consistently to avoid stains and scratches.
‘Less is more’, is how a popular saying goes. When it comes to marble, its use even in a small area can elevate the space, taking it from plain boring to chic.
Textured marble flooring in the foyer or a small medallion inlay in the living room acts as a focal point and creates a gorgeous touch.
Marble Accent Walls
Not often used in wall decor, marble actually creates a great look for any kind of room. It is also easy to work with, and soft which can be applied to different uses. Marble can either be used decoratively for a small area or a single wall, or for the entire room. Unlike difficulties in using tiles for crown moulding and door casing, marble’s versatility makes it a great stone for certain areas of the home.
Marble Ganesha Idols
Because of its unique attractive features and looks, marble makes a great material for religious idols and deities. Its softness and character, make it a great alternative to metal and other materials. It also has a longer shelf life and needs less maintenance.
Although large marble idols like Ganesha are often placed outside the home, small ones too are being increasingly used within pooja rooms as an alternative to gold and brass.
Beautiful Marble Lamps
Marble lamps are a great addition to the home. If it isn’t possible to incorporate marble into other interiors, lampstands are a great option since they tie the space together. Plenty of designs options and customizations are available for traditional as well as contemporary homes.
Not all marble has to be solid and structured. Marble fabric which is fluid and versatile has its own uses – from furnishings and curtains to upholstery and towels. If replacing decor isn’t quite easy, adding touches of marble fabric wherever possible is an equally great option.
Marble stone is often used in carved decor and accessories such as crockery, tableware, pen/pencil stands and even cutting boards. They lend quirky little touches, are sturdier and blend with any decor and colour palette.
