White marble has long been desired for its decadent nature. Originally, it was used for monuments, headstones, and in the palaces and estates of the royals and wealthy. Later, it would be used in traditional style interiors in the kitchen or bath. Today, white marble translates across many design styles from ultra-modern to minimalist to farmhouse. From fireplace surrounds to countertops to floors, this natural stone is timeless and versatile enough to be used in today’s households and businesses.
For a glamorous look in the bathroom, visualize this sparkling white marble on the countertop and backsplash. The shiny surface will catch the light just right with a refractive gleam.
