Raise your game with this sophisticated stone.

Marble kitchen surfaces are hot right now. Just scroll through Pinterest, you’ll see luxe marble in pin after pin. There’s no reason to ponder why. This sophisticated stone will take a plain kitchen from bland to beautiful in an instant.

Its luxury associations and cool good looks will elevate basic kitchen units – and provide a further layer of sophistication to good quality bespoke cabinetry.

Splashbacks, worktops and even flooring are the surfaces that suit best. For design drama – and if your budget allows – an island clad entirely in marble will look sensational.
