White vs Black Marble Worktops

A marble worktop is a timeless addition to any kitchen. Popular due to its beautiful aesthetic value, the stone is also very hard-wearing so perfect for the bustle of the kitchen. Investing in your kitchen can increase the value of your home and a new worktop lasts for years. The varying colours available can create a different look in your kitchen. Whether you want a rustic feel or something more modern, you can tailor the colour to you. Marble is predominantly installed in black and white and these can be uniquely flecked with spots and veins.  White marble can look really distinct with specks of gold or grey, making for a truly bespoke worktop.

These two contrasting colours can look sleek and stylish in any kitchen. Monochrome tends to complement other colours in your kitchen, so if you want your fridge to be a red pop of colour or stick to traditional wooden cabinets, marble will look great. Black and white marble worktops are both unique and have their own benefits when utilised in your kitchen.

White Marble Worktop

A white marble worktop will always be a popular choice for the kitchen. It’s clean and has the potential to open up any room. White is a great colour for smaller kitchens as it allows them to look more spacious. Being a neutral shade, it will complement any other colours already in the room. Combined with a statement shade or bright kitchen wear, white will match this perfectly. There is the potential for white to show scratches and stains more easily, but with the correct maintenance, you can maintain it. Any spills, particularly oils or acidic liquids must be wiped up immediately, so it won’t be absorbed by the porous surface.

Black Marble Worktop

Many people believe that black is too intense for a kitchen, but when combined with other choice colours it looks great. A black marble worktop makes a statement and is truly unique. The obvious benefit of having any dark colour is that stains are easily hidden. There is a danger that black can make the room feel dim, but with the right colour scheme, it can make your kitchen feel cosy and comfortable. Be aware that marble is susceptible to scratches and nicks regardless of the shade.

A Combination

Combine black and white to get the best of both worlds. Choose black or white and have the opposing colour as veins flecking through the stone. This is a great way to keep your surfaces looking unique and keeps a stylish, contemporary aesthetic.
