Mixing it up: White Marble Countertops in Non-White Kitchens

White kitchens with white marble countertops continue to be incredibly popular, and this isn’t a trend that seems to be going anywhere, but white marble is so beautiful and versatile that I wanted to round up some photos that show off marbles like Calacatta Gold and Carrara in kitchens with other interesting and contrasting finishes like bold wallpaper and shiny or colorful cabinets.

We fabricated and installed this Calacatta Gold Marble kitchen designed by Cody Beal that is featured in Utah Style and Design Magazine  this month. You should definitely pick up the current issue to see so much more of this and other projects that we have worked on, but in the meantime, take a look at how the 3 inch mitered apron edge on the marble island makes the piece feel large, sturdy, and sort of industrial atop the shiny stainless steel base cabinet. The Calacatta is repeated in subway tile in the backsplash areas, but the cabinets and countertops along the perimeter provide perfect contrast to both the white and the metal.

This kitchen looks fun and chic at the same time. Mixing finishes can become busy very quickly, but here it’s done in a very simple and classic way. The center island in dark wood with the blue painted perimeter cabinets and the linear glass tile backsplash are all grounded by Carrara marble slab countertops.

This kitchen has aspects that nod to the industrial, like the professional appliances and the amazing range hood, as well as elements that feel very country, like the green painted cabinets and the barn door. I love the way the white marble elevates everything and provides a great work surface at the same time.

Calacatta Gold countertops with a full height slab backsplash make one of the most stunning kitchen design combinations. Wrapping the slab around the architectural elements in the kitchen and pairing the marble with charcoal grey cabinets makes the room even more unique and special.
