Classic Beauty of Marble Tile

by Jane VanOsdol on April 27, 2011

Whether you’re creating a kitchen backsplash or a tile surround for your bathroom tub or shower, subway tile is a versatile choice. It always has a fresh look and can be trendy or classic, depending on your own decorating style.

Well, imagine all the versatility of subway tile wrapped up in marble. Yes, you can purchase subway tile in marble, and it’s truly stunning. If you’re looking for a backsplash that is a classic beauty, you’ll want to consider this tile.

Carrara Venato honed marble is a white marble that features random steaks of gray for a timeless look.  You’ll never grow tired of this tile in your home. It will add an instant touch of elegance to your kitchen or bathroom because of its subtle beauty, smooth textures and regal classicism. Honed simply means that the marble is polished to a mirror-like sheen. Honing also helps the marble to not absorb substances as easily, but you should still seal a marble countertop to help protect it.

Look for this 3/8” thick, 3” x 6” tile at buildersdepotdirectcom. Considering its classic lines, your kitchen remodeling or bathroom remodeling contractor should be able to help you with several design ideas for your home improvement project.

One possibility is to go with a fresh, white color palette for your kitchen or bathroom. Paint your walls and cabinets a creamy ivory. If you have the budget, have your contractor install white marble countertops and then as a finishing touch, the marble subway tiles. If you’re worried about your kitchen being too white or bland, incorporate a bit of color in your décor. Paint a kitchen island a muted, soothing shade of sage. And, let the colors of nature take center stage in a white kitchen. A bouquet of vibrant flowers will grace a marble countertop. Set out bowls of colorful fruit and vegetables, like lemons, limes and artichokes. Perch a small potted plant of baby tears on a shelf.

Or, if you like contrast, how about the play between black and white marble? The white marble subway tiles juxtaposed next to a black marble countertop would create a stunning, classic look for your kitchen or bath, and it’s a look that will never go out of style. You won’t have to worry about your investment falling out of vogue to the latest trend, because with marble, it won’t happen.

So, as you’re contemplating your bathroom or kitchen design, consider the possibility of marble subway tiles. This classic stone may be just the touch that your kitchen needs to shine.
