If you’re looking to add a touch of natural stone to your kitchen, marble is one of the most effective ways to do so. With so many colours and natural patterns to choose from, you’re sure to find something that matches the vision you have for your new kitchen design.
In this article, we’re going to take a look at several stunning ways to use marble in your kitchen, as well as some of the most popular colours this beautiful natural stone arrives in.
Perhaps the most popular use of marble in a modern kitchen is on the worktop. Stain and scratch-resistant, non-porous, and hard-wearing, it’s the perfect material on which to prepare food. It is also easy to clean and long-lasting, making it a sound investment for any property.
Much like a worktop, marble splashbacks can be both practical and beautiful. Set back from the rest of the worktop, they provide a backdrop for your kitchen, against which to compare and contrast different focal colours.
Marble-effect cupboard doors
Typically, marble is too heavy to be used as a kitchen cupboard door, meaning the cabinet hinges would be unable to support its weight. However, there are many marble-effect doors you can use for your cupboards and cabinets. Typically made from wood or MDF with a patterned veneer, they are often indistinguishable from the real thing.
If you really want your kitchen to stand out, then a marble floor is the answer. Not only does it look great, it feels amazing underfoot and is so easy to keep clean.
Popular marble colours for your kitchen
Marble is one of the most variegated types of natural stone, being available in a wide range of colours. Here at Hot Doors, we provide a range of made-to-measure cupboard doors and replacement doors for kitchen cabinets that work particularly well with different types of marble. Whether you’re looking for something to complement or contrast with your marble work surfaces or splashbacks, we have something special for you:
Black marble: black marble is a classic look, adding style and sophistication to a kitchen. Our Val Oriental black marble-effect doors are the perfect complement.
White marble: if you prefer a lighter look for your kitchen, white marble might be a good choice. Our Luc handle-less doors in matt white go well with this stone.
Red marble: this tends to be either a dark pink or purple, depending on the stone in question, but red is a good umbrella term. Our Zur Supermatt Serica doors in plum work well with most shades of red (or white) marble.
Grey marble: if you choose this colour, then a high gloss door in a complimentary colour can provide a desirable effect, as our Fir Super-gloss doors in dust grey prove.
Blue marble: alternatively, when choosing the right doors to match your blue marble kitchen, it’s sometimes better to go with a wood grain effect.
However you choose to incorporate marble into your kitchen, you can order replacement doors for kitchen cabinets today, right here at Hot Doors. All online orders benefit from fast UK delivery and you can even order samples from us to make sure you’re getting the perfect match for your new kitchen.
