We absolutely love kitchens that bring together different materials, finishes and hues in a seamless fashion, and despite all the contrast, the overall image looks both stylish and sophisticated. For those who are both skillful and imaginative enough to accomplish this, the marble countertop offers a perfect way to add panache and refinement to a kitchen already clad in wood, brick, metal or even glass. The graceful finish of marble acts as a counterbalance to the rough presence of brick and unpolished stone, even as it draws you in with its beauty and magnetism.
Marble kitchen island countertops come in a wide range of forms and are obviously as diverse as the stone itself. Whether you prefer Carrara marble, the more exuberant Calacatta marble or something entirely different for your kitchen island, it is essential to consider the many pros and cons of using the stone in the kitchen before making a final decision. Dashing and demanding, the big visual impact that marble offers definitely comes at a price!
Whether it is homework time or they pitch in to help make dinner, a kitchen island is a great place for kids to feel part of the action and be in close eye view. Another option for kitchen islands is to place kid’s height amenities like a microwave and refrigerated drawer in reach. For after school snacks and Saturday morning early breakfasts, amenities that the kids can feel independent using are a good idea for some households.
