Accent Your Marble with Black & White

Topping off your kitchen or bath design with marble countertops? Accent them with the timeless look of black and white. The staying power of this classic combination has lasted more than 100 years. In fact, many of the patterns popular today date back to Victorian times.

Black & White Can Support Any Style Statement

Black and white schemes offer compatibility from traditional to modern kitchen styles and everything in-between. There are many ways you can deck out your kitchen or bath in a timeless black and white look…

  • Start with White, Accenting in Black

White is a common choice for fixtures and appliances, from stove tops and sinks in the kitchen, to toilets and tubs in the bath, making the addition of the sharp contrast of black a simple way to make a strong style statement. Add the unique flair of matte black faucets, pipes, curtain rods and hardware. Trim windows, baseboards, and crown molding in black. Add shelving or cabinets beneath sinks in stunning black, complementing black trim with a black and white trimmed floor.

        A black and white herringbone tile pattern accent wall makes for a beautiful backdrop for the addition of brass sconces and mirrors, especially when paired with a Greek key tile border on the floor.
