Mosaics and Focal Points, The biggest real estate for a focal point is behind the stove. Create focal points by changing up the pattern or color scheme of your materials, whether that’s laying tile at an angle or mixing and matching complimentary colors. And if you’re on a budget, splurge on that stove-top wall and use a less expensive material everywhere else.
In the kitchen, marble is often used on countertops and backsplashes. A marble backsplash can look very elegant and stylish but, given the characteristics of the material, requires constant maintenance. Still, cleaning a marble backsplash is easy. Just use warm water and dish soap and, for stubborn stains, a mixture of baking soda and water. Marble backsplashes and countertop need to be sealed regularly and this can either be done by a professional or can be treated as a DIY project.
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.
