5 Ways to Incorporate the Marble Trend

Marble has been growing in popularity since 2013. Initially championed by independents such as Ferm Living and House Envy, it is now making appearances across many luxury and high-street retailer’s summer collections.

The marble design is very adaptable due to its neutral colours and can be purchased in many forms, from wallpaper to cushion covers and bedspreads. Find out how marble can improve a room in your home by following our 5 ways to incorporate the trend.

1. Marble in the Kitchen

White marble worktops and splashbacks can bring individuality to your kitchen as well as creating the illusion of more space. Accompany with a neutral colour palette and several plants to brighten your kitchen and bring it to life.

2. Marble Shelving

Add a marble shelf unit to brighten dark, confined spaces. Real marble shelves can be expensive, so if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, try applying marble contact paper to the shelf surfaces, which can be found in hardware stores and craft shops for as little as £3 a roll.

4. Marble Accessories

Marble can add a touch of class to any décor. If you don’t want it to take over your current theme, you can select a couple of small accessories such as a clock and some printed cushions.

Alternatively, make an impact with a marble feature wall. Marble wallpaper can look delightful when added to a minimal room.
