I have a cape cod home and I am redoing my bathrooms. I love marble also and would like a traditional, relaxed look. I am not sure which way to go.
Thanks

my name is luigi and I was born in carrara, my family sells marble since always.. and it’s funny to read people say that a kitchen made of a stone that others call marble… is snob :-)

I am thinking about marble for my counter tops.

I am hearing though that it is very much the opposite over on the west coast.

It can be white-white or grey white due to the grey and black veining. It blends nicely with muted colors that tend towards black and gray. Personally, the color is too cold for me. I prefer Crema Marfil. This is also an elegant white but with golden streaks. This blends nicely with wood tones and other warm colors.

One hugh value of marble is that is it always cold and makes an excellent surface for making pastries or chocolats. It is also possible to buy marble tiles that you install yourself. The cost is about 1/3 the cost of marble slabs and, when narrow grout lines are used, is very attractive. Perhaps you could ease your hubby into the idea of marble by putting it on an island or in just one section of the countertop where you do baking. Please visit my Facebook Page: Champagne Taste (on a beer bottle budget) for information about granite tiles and how to use them.

I’m in the business and when it comes to discussion of cladding our kitchen or bathroom with marble, I get that exact same”snobby” comment from my hub all the time! It ain’t no “snobby” for him to buy seasonal tickets to games though. And you worry about spelling right? There are people out there who can’t spell “Italy” correctly, let alone carrara marble ;)

It makes a great watch dog, I broke my toe on it trying to sneak out of the house in the 70s. If you would like to see pictures of it..Please respond to my e-mail. The piece is priced at $1175.00
