Carrara Marble is widely used as a finishing touch for a kitchen renovation. As a backsplash Carrara Marble offers a great look. With multiple sizes, design options can be a simple subway size of 3x6 or 4x12 to a busier pattern using mosaics. When using mosaics typically there is a feature area over the cooktop area which is bordered out with a bullnose pencil or more decorative crown or chair rail piece.
Carrara Marble finish options for a kitchen backsplash are either honed or polished. Carrara Marble in honed or polish finish can be used together for a subtle but dramatic tone on tone/finish look. Both finished work well for backsplash option and both are available in multiple size tile, mosaics and mouldings. You can be a creative as you like. From total kitchen renovations to just redoing a backsplash, it is the backsplash that WOW’s. Dare to be bold and creative. For those preferring subtle design, one size like a 3x6 tile might be enough. For those wanting to add some interest, the use of chair rail of pencil brings dimension to the design. For those wanting to really stand out, doing the entire backsplash in a chevron or Basketweave pattern is the way to go.
