Natural stone materials like granite, slate, or limestone are popular materials for kitchen backsplashes due to their timeless appeal. Among these alternatives, there is one material that stands out with its luxurious elegance: marble. Sure the main purpose of a backsplash is functional but it’s also a great way to add style, color, and pattern. For this reason, marble backsplashes became one of the most popular materials for homeowners and interior designers. Since marble stone comes in a variety of colors, textures, and patterns, it is very suitable to create a multicolor subway backsplash.

The natural beauty and variation in color and veining of the marble stone make it a timeless choice that can complement various design styles. When this luxurious appeal meets with the simplistic elegance of the subway pattern, the result is just perfect. So, if you want to give your subway backsplash a touch of opulence, you can not go wrong with a marble material. Aside from the high aesthetic value, marble is also a durable material. It can easily withstand daily wear and tear. However, since it is a natural stone which has a porous skin, it requires regular sealing. Sealing marble periodically maintains its protective barrier.
