14 White Marble Kitchens for an Elegant Home
White marble is one way to make your kitchen look elegant and stylish in just one simple step, no matter what kind of cabinets you install.
Marble has almost always been a sign of wealth and luxury. So what do you do if you’re looking for a new design idea for your kitchen and don’t know what comes next? Go with marble. The white marble here is definitely going to be a great way to get exactly what you’re looking for in both regards.
The Style of White Marble
White marble is basically just what you think of when someone says those two words. It doesn’t have to be 100% white, however, as you could get more unique varieties for your kitchen. It’s mostly about the background of the marble, which is going to be pure white. From there, it’s entirely up to you what you want. Are you looking for a little more accent or a little more purity? That can help you in choosing one of these beautiful white granite colors.
When it comes to style you should also look at other features, like what the edges of the marble are going to look like. Some people like rounded edges while others like rough edges. Maybe you want something in between. Scalloped and beveled edges are always popular and some people even like their marble to be a backsplash or tile.
The Cost of White Marble
When it comes to spending your money on white marble, however, you might want to take a few minutes to think about it. This is where your big expense is going to come in because marble can cost $125 – $250 per square foot. If you’re thinking about putting it throughout your kitchen you may want to factor this in. For some people, it won’t matter how much it costs, but for others, it might bear thinking about at least.
Many people use white marble as an accent so they don’t have to spend quite as much on their countertops. If you’re looking for something high quality and durable, there’s very little that can beat marble in any of its forms. Even granite is going to be strong and durable but close to the same price at $100 – $225 per square foot. If you’re looking at saving money with the highest possible quality, it’s going to be a tossup on those two options.
Cutting the Cost on Marble
If you really want marble but don’t want to spend so much, look at ways to add just a little in your house. Instead of using only white marble, use the marble on an island and something else on the main cupboards. Maybe you want to do the revers and put marble as your main but butcher’s block on an island. You can also look at backsplash tiles in white marble.
Of course, if you’re certain that you want some type of white marble you should be looking at these options. We’ve tracked down some really beautiful kitchens that you’ll want to check for yourself. You might find something that you absolutely love for your own home. Or maybe you’ll find something that gives you an idea of what to do in your own home.
