Over the last few decades, marble has been placed on the backburner for interior design.
Typically, when most people think of marble design, they conjure images of spacious rooms showcasing floor-to-ceiling marble stone. Or, they may think of the elaborate sculptures, which decorate the halls of museums around the world.
What they don’t realise is marble design is not only making a comeback, it’s here to stay! Marble design elements inject a modern, sleek, and glamorous element into any interior design.
Marble design can range from overt flooring, countertops and furniture to subtle decorative statement and accent pieces. In either event, marble design elements are sure to leave a lasting impression.
The interior design experts at Milestone have a few creative ways to use marble design to add a classic touch to your décor while keeping it modern and chic.
Marble Columns to Delineate Space
Open-floor plans are becoming increasingly common.
Whether you live in a spacious villa or a small studio-apartment, open design concepts leave your space feeling less restricted, and more open and inviting.
Even though an open-design concept may lack walls, you still need to delineate your space to keep it looking organised. Marble design elements can do the trick.
The obvious answer to delineating an open-floor plan is with marble columns.
However, there’s no need for your marble columns to be ordinary. Marble design elements, including columns, come in a variety of colours.
Ranging from white, black and grey to pink, red and green, the marble design colour choices are endless.
Not to mention, each piece of marble has distinct veining which enhances the look of this unique and luxurious material.
Not interested in columns that run from the ceiling to the floor?
Alternatively, consider building a half-wall with columns to separate spaces. You can even choose columns with straight edges and few ornamental touches to provide a more industrial feel.
Marble Design – Flooring or Walls
The key point here lies in the “or” aspect of flooring or walls.
Generally, most people avoid using marble design elements for both their floors and walls.
Using both may make your space look and feel cold and unwelcoming. This is your home, and you want it to feel warm and inviting.
Start by selecting which marble design elements you desire for your space.
Do you prefer either marble flooring or walls? Selecting one over the other will provide you the opportunity to add a touch of elegance to your space while tying the marble design in with more modern materials.
When it comes to marble, it’s not just “go big or go home.”
You can make a statement by adding marble design elements to your interior, such as adding a backsplash in your kitchen. Additionally, you can use marble instead of other stone tiles in your bathroom.
The foyer or entrance area of your villa is another perfect place to add marble flooring.
Your entrance room (or foyer) is considered a more traditional and formal space. However, you can add modern furniture to compliment the timeless feel of marble flooring.
Don’t Forget the Marble Furniture
Marble design elements can be infused into your furniture pieces.
In fact, due to its durable nature, marble makes an outstanding material for furniture. It is strong, sturdy, and will last a lifetime. The right piece of marble furniture can create an extraordinary statement piece.
What type of marble furniture should you choose?
Ultimately, the choice is up to you. However you can get creative. Consider investing in a lovely marble table table top.
Or perhaps a stunning arm chair accented with marble legs. Consider replacing your kitchen island with a marble one. The possibilities are limitless.
Not only is marble durable, but it also lets you inject a bit of elegance to your living room with a marble coffee table. In fact, a marble coffee table makes a timeless addition to any living space.
Consider using marble for your nightstands, or for tables used as outdoor furniture. Not only are they beautiful and elegant, but they are strong enough to withstand the weather.
