    This kitchen island commands attention. Measuring a substantial 4x8 feet, it is topped with 3-inch-thick Calcutta marble. The classic blue-gray veining of this marble complements the kitchen's elegant, traditional style.

Integrated Marble Sink

    An apron-front marble sink and luxurious run of 3-inch-thick marble countertops create a seamless look along the window wall. A simple eased edge on the countertops highlights the marble's intricate veining.

Honed Marble Countertops

    Honed black marble countertops complement the dark cherry cabinets and oak floors in this Craftsman-style kitchen. You could achieve a similar effect with slate or soapstone countertops, which are less porous than marble.

Marble Countertop with an Ogee Edge

    This sophisticated kitchen marries elegant marble countertops with custom cabinetry and polished-nickel fixtures. The ogee edge on the countertops sets a classic tone.

Marble Backsplash

    A tin ceiling, black-and-white marble floor tiles, and blue-veined marble countertops lend a vintage feel to this remodeled kitchen. A matching marble backsplash completes the look.

Mix-and-Match Marble

    This kitchen steps back in time with white marble countertops, matching mosaic marble-clad walls, and a vintage-look black range hood. Open shelves, also in white marble, replaced upper cabinets for a light, airy feel.

White Marble Countertops

    Marble countertops add the perfect finishing touch to this traditional-style kitchen. Finished with an ogee edge, the white marble countertops with subtle gray veining complement the room's soft-green and white palette.

Tumbled Marble Tile

    The mix of earthy materials in this kitchen includes honed marble countertops and distressed walnut cabinets. Tumbled marble tile in white and terra-cotta forms a variety of patterns along the perimeter of the room, including a checkered border under the arch that frames the cooktop.

Contemporary Kitchen with Marble Countertops

    Marble countertops are not limited to traditional settings. In this contemporary kitchen, sumptuous white marble, patterned with deep gray veining, stretches from countertop to ceiling, making a bold statement along the sink wall.

Deep-Toned Marble Countertops

    The island and perimeter countertops in this Tuscan-style kitchen are topped with a green, variegated marble that is honed and sealed for extra durability. To complement the countertops, the owners chose a white marble tile backsplash and flooring.

Classic White Marble Countertops

    A duo of white marble-topped islands provides ample workspace in this state-of-the-art kitchen. The marble countertops form a classic counterpoint to the professional-style appliances and slate tile floors.

Traditional Marble Countertops

    A white-on-white palette creates a refined look in this traditional-style kitchen. The white marble countertops blend with white custom cabinets and polished-nickel hardware.

Baking Center with Marble Countertop

    Stained a bold brick red, this custom island doubles as a baking center. The baking-friendly marble countertop is ideal for rolling out dough.

Exotic Marble Countertops

    Exotic honed Emperador marble countertops take center stage in this elegant kitchen. The rich color stands out against cream-color, beaded-board cabinetry and an understated ceramic tile backsplash.

Red Marble Countertops

    Beautiful Damascus Red marble countertops, finished with a double ogee edge, add style and grace to this small butler's pantry. A custom edge treatment significantly raises the price of a countertop, but it may be worth the splurge to achieve a particular look.

Carrara Marble Countertops

    Black granite on the island contrasts with white carrara marble along the perimeter. The mix of colors and tones adds visual interest and highlights the kitchen's traditional style.

Red Marble Island

    Marble countertops don't have to be subdued. This rich red marble countertop complements the island's dark wood tones and creates a focal point in the center of the kitchen.

Multipurpose Marble

    White subway tile serves as a transition between lustrous white Calcutta marble countertops, finished in a classic ogee edge, and tiny mosaic marble tiles, which clad the walls.

Honed Marble Surface

    Green marble with a honed, undulating surface tops these perimeter countertops. The countertops' simple, squared-off pencil edge lets the stone be the focus.

Elegant Marble

    An elegant marble tile backsplash blends with carrara marble countertops in this sophisticated kitchen. The island is topped with rich Scandinavian walnut, which forms a striking counterpoint to the run of white marble along the perimeter.

Custom Countertop Edge

    A custom edge treatment distinguishes these light marble counters. An undermount sink is a good option for creating a seamless look.
