One of the best ways to transform your kitchen and bathrooms into elegant spaces is with Denver marble. It’s sleek, luxurious, and simple—making it the perfect addition to your space. No matter what your home’s style, you can make this type of stone work. Learn about the benefits of marble, how to create a color palette for your space, and additional accents to create the kitchen of your dreams.

Why Marble?

Marble is more affordable than most people think—allowing you to expand from traditional granite that many homeowners install. It’s a durable option, that when using marble care and maintenance 101, will have a quality that lasts for years to come. It is also resistant to heat, making it great for the person that loves to cook. While you shouldn’t put anything straight from the stovetop onto a stone surface, this stone is less prone to heat damage, giving you flexibility in the event of accidents. It has a variety of accents, allowing you to add that extra “umph” needed to spice up a space. Your guests will surely notice and admire its beauty! Make sure your marble stands the test of time and have it sealed. This is beneficial because it is a porous material.

Creating Your Premier Color Palette

Before choosing a marble counter, make sure you have a color palette if you plan on changing the color of your bathroom or kitchen. It all starts by picking a color you like. For instance, red, blue, or purple. Next, explore color schemes. One of the top ways to accomplish this is to research online or visit your local hardware stores paint section for palettes. When exploring colors from the color wheel, you can use the color wheel primer:
  • Analogous: A combination of three colors grouped together on the wheel
  • Complementary: Opposite of one another on the color wheel
  • Split complementary: A mix of three colors using the two colors adjacent to the complementary color
  • Tetradic: A mix of four colors in sets of two complementary colors each
  • Triadic: Three colors that are in equal parts of spacing from each other on the wheel

Additional Accents

Finish off your project by adding the perfect accents. Change out light fixtures to newer ones that match your décor. It’s a great time to add in lighting if needed while under construction. You can also create an accent wall that is painted, made of wood, or of wallpaper. Marble itself can create great accents, including staircase embellishments, flooring, tabletops, serving dishes, and shelving.
