Marble has been a popular material of choice in kitchens for many years, and white marble specifically has never gone out of style. Whilst we do not sell a range of real marble stone worktops, we do sell an incredibly high quality alternative: our Calcutta marble laminate worktops.
This AEON™ Enhanced Performance Laminate is the perfect choice for modern marble kitchen designs, offering a realistic imitation of natural stone that is considerably easier to work with, whilst being up to five times more scuff, scratch and wear-resistant than standard laminate worktops.
Not only are our marble laminate worktops highly-affordable and easy to work with, their manufacture is a lot more environmentally friendly than real white Italian marble.
If you are looking for some inspiring modern marble kitchen designs, read through the following tips to help you ‘get the look’:
Use Colour in Modern Marble Kitchen Designs
White marble worktops are often used in kitchens with a fairly stark white-on-white aesthetic, and whilst this is still a very popular choice in modern marble kitchen designs, adding colour can be a stylish way to help accentuate the light colour of our white marble worktops.
If painting contemporary kitchen cabinet doors, consider punchy greys, vibrant greens and deep blues to help the white stand out.
In pastel colour schemes, vibrant colour can also be incorporated by including bright accessories and appliances.
Add a Touch of Marble to Your Walls
If you want to incorporate more modern marble kitchen designs into your interior, consider complementary accessories such as our matching marble laminate upstands or marble splashbacks. Upstands help to protect the wall surrounding your marble work surface, whilst giving continuity beyond the worktop.
Matching splashbacks have an even bigger impact on the overall look of a kitchen. Our splashbacks are made using the same high-grade laminate attached to a thin sheet of MDF. This can then be attached to the wall adjacent to your worktops in order to cover the space between them and any wall-mounted cabinets.
Use Chrome, Stainless Steel, Copper or Gold for Added Luxury
Using luxurious metals alongside white marble worktops creates a beautifully contemporary look that’s very ‘on trend’.
Currently gold and copper kitchen accessories are in high demand, whilst chrome and stainless steel have remained popular choices for both small appliances and larger items such as ovens and fridges.
If using high-shine metals in a kitchen, we recommend sticking to one type of material for consistency. Consider cabinet door handles and knobs in a matching finish for a cohesive look throughout your kitchen.
