My Thoughts on Marble Backsplashes


It's no secret that I LOVE a white kitchen.  White cabinetry, or a mix of white and dark wood, creates a classic look with timeless appeal.

A marble backsplash is a beautiful addition to a traditional white kitchen.  Here are just a few of my favorites.

Simple, white marble subway tiles are always in style.



I love the look of grey-toned marble with white cabinets and black counters.



A custom design inset above the range becomes a striking focal point.



This intricate pattern is a lovely complement to the understated, white cabinetry.



This marble was cut and installed to give the appearance of old brick.  I LOVE this!



Tiny subway tiles, laid in a herringbone pattern, reach from floor to ceiling.



A carerra marble countertop and backsplash makes an elegant design statement.


Your kitchen will never appear outdated when you combine classic white cabinetry with a beautiful marble backsplash.

Do you appreciate the look (real or imitation) of marble?  I'd love to hear your thoughts!

I like the first and second image

I am also happy to have marble on the counter and regular subway tile as a backsplash. I dislike when it gets too busy

A great post

I love the look of marble but I don't need the added maintenance! We have ceramic subway tiles that look like real marble. They were way cheaper, and no one can tell the difference. I love your style, Wendi. Great post!

Wendi, you've shown some great examples of marble backsplashes. The first image is my favorite, with the basket weave marble accent tiles over the range. Glad to see you back posting again. We missed you!!

Love real marble. I don't have it in my kitchen, but I do have it on my entry floor and guest bathroom floor, walls and counter. Love subway in marble, so classic. Nice to see you are blogging again, I have been out of the loop for a few weeks, it is good to be back,

I love marble, we have it in our main bathroom, but I'd love to have it in my kitchen. The brick shaped marble is fantastic, I'd never seen anything like this before. Must cost a pretty penny though!

Hope you are doing well, have a great week, Wendi.

I love this post! I adore subway tile in general, but in marble it's even better. Fantastic photos Wendi!

These kitchens are fabulous, and i one the subway tiles too, Wendi. The first and last images or my favorites. Can't go wrong with a white kitchen.
Happy 4th!

I love white marble. Unfortunately in my town, it's viewed from the ridiculous, biased standpoint that its for kitchens-for-show, not kitchens in which someone actually cooks. But someday, when I don't have to worry about resale, it will be my kitchen surface of choice!

Hi Wendy, beautiful post! I LOVE marble in all its many colors but especially white! Yes, its a timeless classic and with a little common sense and care..it can be as practical as any other surface but it never goes of style and to me works with ANY kitchen, any color. Wishing you a great July 4th.

My favorite is definitely the grey-toned marble with the white cabinets. Striking indeed! Dressing up your walls is always fun, especially with this marble or just the right wall art.

You have a good taste in marble backsplashes, Wendi! You can never go wrong with marble tiles. They are exceptionally long lasting, which last up to four times longer than the other types of flooring. Also, it’s 100% stain resistance. Marble backsplashes are ideal whether you’re creating a Tuscan kitchen or a contemporary one. As for Tuscan kitchen, tumble marble is a good choice. While for the contemporary ones, you can go for Blue Savah or Honey Onyx to create a modern look.
