In the world of design, marble is having a major moment. You can’t flip open a design magazine or scroll through Pinterest without coming across photos of gorgeous marble everywhere! While marble is a stunning stone, many people are hesitant to bring marble into their kitchens as their countertop finish however, as a backsplash - it makes a stunning impact. So, if you’re looking to incorporate a marble backsplash into your kitchen but are unsure which countertop will work well with the marble, we’ve got you covered.
1. White Quartz
If you love the light and airy look of marble and want to continue that feeling for your counter material choice, a white Quartz might be a great choice. Quartz is a stronger and more durable material than Marble but will be bright and beautiful and will pair beautifully with a marble slab backsplash. Just take a look at these kitchens.
2. Butcher Block
Butcher block countertops are a beautiful kitchen feature. The richness of the natural wood adds a warmth and comfort to a kitchen that really pops against the luxe look of a crisp marble backsplash. A lighter butcher block is bright and warm while a darker butcher block is richer and a little more luxe. Either way you go, they’re both beautiful.
Soapstone is a natural stone similar to granite. It’s a beautiful countertop option and contrasts very nicely with the softness of marble. We love to see the striking contrast of a rich soapstone paired with the beautiful finish or marble.
Granite is an incredibly popular countertop material choice and it’s not hard to see why. It has incredible versatility with may colour and pattern choices and being a natural material (like marble), no two pieces are alike. Dark granite countertops highly contrast the lighter aesthetic of a marble backsplash and create a beautiful pairing of gorgeous natural stones.
Our final countertop suggestion to pair with a marble slab backsplash is concrete. In the grand scheme of countertop selections concrete is relatively new but it's a finish we know will continue to grow in popularity. Concrete is an incredibly durable and versatile finish. Concrete can be dyed and stained in almost any color from a bright white to a deep grey which makes it incredibly customizable to find the perfect tone to suit your marble slab backsplash.
