Thinking about adding some marble to your interior design? Here are two easy ways you can incorporate it into your home without going overboard.

Marble Countertops

Marble countertops are every bit as durable as their granite counterparts and can give you a look to make your kitchen stand out from the crowd. Marble is available in a wide variety of colors and has more customization options than granite.

Marble is also very heat resistant and can stand up to even the hottest pots and pans in the kitchen. However, you’ll want to make sure that you apply a sealant to it immediately after installation to prevent spills from seeping into its porous surface.

Nothing says you have to stick with the same countertop material throughout your kitchen, so you may opt for another material on your main cooking area and use marble as an accent for a unique look.

Marble Fireplaces

Outside of the kitchen, marble makes a great backdrop for a fireplace in any room of your home. Yes, it is still possible to have a cozy space using marble. It can add a classy vibe that you won’t get from other materials!

Much like its use in the kitchen, marble is a great option for a fireplace because of its heat-resistant qualities. You can turn up the fireplace on those cold nights without worrying about damaging the stone.

While you want your fireplace to bring character to a room, you don’t want it to steal attention away from anything else. To achieve the right balance, look for a neutral shade of marble that will complement the rest of your room’s decor.
