Our favourite ways to embrace the marble trend
Cheers granite, there’s a new natural stone trending in decor. Here’s how to incorporate this premium material into your home.
Marble was previously synonymous with luxe kitchen and bathroom fixtures for opulent homes.However, the recent comeback of this natural stone in modern design has given rise to new (and more affordable) interpretations of how to incorporate it into your living space.
With these tips you can include a marble finish in your home to match your budget.
It’s all in the details
If you love marble but you’re not in a position to remodel your kitchen, then consider small additions that channel the trend.Think marble coasters, a cheese board or a pot stand for your counter top. You could even get a marble tray or dish for your bathroom to store your rings and jewellery. On trend and practical – a double decor win!
Make marble a semi-permanent fixture in your living room with accent pieces such as marble-topped side tables or a marble-base lamp. These are the perfect complement to a neutral living space as they add detail without being too bold. Bring the room together with brass or copper accessories such as photo frames or candelabras.
Outside the box
The less obvious interpretation of the trend is marble-inspired prints. From rugs to scatter cushions, you can channel the texture in an unconventional way. Keep an eye out for marble prints in pastel shades – a soft splash of colour for the warmer spring months.
Marble look made easy
Our favourite way to adopt the trend is with our marble-look tiles. Combining the elegance of marble with the durability of porcelain, you can easily update your kitchen or bathroom. Imported from Italy, these tiles are easy to clean, hard-wearing and don’t require a sealant. They’re available in gloss or matte finishes and work well on floors or walls.
