Cabinets should complement, not compete

When you use marble, you want kitchen cabinets that complement the marble. Avoid anything that will compete with it.

  • Marble creates a bright and airy look.

  • Use white cabinets. They will go well with the marble.

  • A soft white or antique white works well.

  • If you need some color in the cabinets, use a dark, neutral color like gray or even black. The light marble will stand out against these colors.

A gorgeous backsplash brings it all together

You can have a marble backsplash in your kitchen without worrying about it matching too well. Marble counters along with a marble backsplash may make you wonder if the two will just blend into one another, rather than create interest.
