    White vs Black Marble Worktops

    A Marble worktop is a timeless addition to any kitchen due to it beautiful aesthetic value and its hard-wearing properties, making it perfect for the hustle and bustle of the kitchen, but the question is, should you opt for a White or Black Marble worktop?

    Each colour can create a different look in your kitchen, so whether you want a rustic feel or something more modern, we can tailor the colour to you. Marble is predominantly installed in black or white and these can be uniquely flecked with spots and veins, but we do offer other options within our Marble range.

    White or Black Marble

    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. White and Black 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, as well as having the added benefit of easily hiding stains! However, when choosing black, there is the danger of making a room feel dim, easily avoided with the right colour scheme, it can make your kitchen feel cosy and comfortable.

    Regardless of whether you choose a white or black Marble worktop, you should be aware that marble is susceptible to scratches and nicks, no matter the shade.
