Many kitchens offer white, wood, and chrome features. What many don’t boast is a touch of marble. Indicative of the luxurious and uber-sophisticated, marble is a textile most kitchens only dream of. Whether black-speckled or white-streaked, each marble panel is different and bespoke, with no marbled effect appearing the same. Not just for splashbacks and benches, watch as marble adorns chairs, flooring, and even a touch of the ornamental. These thirty-six kitchens show a myriad of ways in which marble can add class and sophistication to a kitchen, creating a truly luxurious cooking and tasting space.
