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.
This white kitchen breaks it up, with white marble streaking grey against a minimal backdrop. Taupe cabinetry and wood-and-charcoal chairs help mix the palette, while white decorations float to the ceiling.
Evoke the mood of the boudoir in a space for eating. This lightly-veined marble wall and bench are backgrounded by plains of white cabinetry. Black chairs stencilled in white sit lit by a jellyfish chandelier.
There’s nothing like marble to introduce the classic kitchen. French panelling in black and white joins marble in grey and white, creating a modern twist on your mother’s childhood space. Black stencil drop lighting makes it modern.
Blend the classic and modern with this marble-benched space. A Florentine plaster ceiling frames dark wooden cabinetry, black-and-gold stools and a sprig of white florals. An alternating floor retains interest.
Resplendent in panelling, this kitchen uses marble as a design feature. Strips of varnished wood in a ceiling and under-bench meet mottled marble in a wrap bench and splashback. White cabinetry provides a canvas.
Another panelled gem, this kitchen’s unusual shape is best set in marble. A long, varnished corridor results in marble in streaked grey, framing two thirds of a wall and two squared-off kitchen spaces. A stove’s cubby hole get a second look in.
A kitchen doesn’t have to be conventional. This artistic space is anything but, with two director’s wooden chairs greeting a one-legged marble bench. 70’s wooden panelling frames an artful feature in the same material, while an oven hides underneath.
Art deco and the Scandinavian collide in a light, artistic kitchen. Light wooden cabinetry and a zigazag floor hold an unusual marble frame, secured by one square and a golden tap. A matching splashback hides behind a triangular chandelier.
