Marble has always been a luxurious choice for interior finishes. However, while it remains an expensive choice, it’s much more accessible and easy to use in everyday homes than before. If you can splurge on marble finishes, the choice can increase the value of your home and create a sense of luxury in your life. Here are some ways you can add marble to your decor:

Marble Kitchen Backsplash

For a luxurious take on a classic design choice, try a marble backsplash in your kitchen. This lets you enjoy using the material without spending a fortune on larger installations like countertops. You can find marble in many colors to match your existing kitchen palette, or you can create a whole aesthetic based around the backsplash.

Marble Wall Art

Another way to decorate with marble is by using a marble slab as a piece of statement art. Affix a beautiful piece of marble to any wall and you have an art piece that doesn’t even need a frame. This option gives you an opportunity to be creative with things like shape and color. Try multiple small pieces and hang them gallery-style or choose one large piece cut into a geometric shape rather than a basic rectangle.

Marble Accent Wall

For those who want to go a little further with marble decor, try covering an entire wall. A marble accent wall makes a perfect decorative addition to a bathroom or any other room where you want to add some luxury. For a dramatic focal point, renovate your fireplace to surround it entirely with a marble wall. You can choose from countless color options and enjoy a unique accent wall that’s sure to enhance any space.

Marble Slab Table

From tiny accent tables to grand formal dining tables, there are lots of options for using marble as a surface in your decor. A small marble slab with natural wood makes an upscale yet rustic accent piece. A long dining room table made from a marble slab makes any dining area feel more classy. One popular marble trend for tables is rough-hewn edges made to seem like natural wood. Combine this with marble coloring that mimics the appearance of wood grain and you have a beautiful surface area suitable for any size of table.

Marble can seem intimidating to work with, but it pays off in the level of luxury and timeless beauty it can bring to your space. Try these ideas if you’re thinking about using marble as part of your home décor.
