First, however, let’s understand what marble is so we can better judge and appreciate it. Geologists refer to marble as a metamorphosed limestone while stonemasons have a broader way of looking at it. Marble is used as a building material and also in sculptures. It’s of many different types, each having its own particularities that help us distinguish between them.
Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles, and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets. Stone is porous, however, which makes it harder to clean and more prone to chipping. An alternative to using smaller, stacked stones is to continue the same granite or marble used for the countertops all the way up the wall.
Mosaic backsplashes can take many different forms. So whether your kitchen has a traditional, modern, rustic or contemporary, there will always be numerous attractive designs to take into consideration.
