Modern kitchens have white cabinets with wooden countertops and stainless steel appliances. What few can say is that they have a marble finish. Marble is the fabric of choice for the ultra-rich and ultra-hip, but most kitchens can only dream of having it. Each marble panel, whether it be black-speckled or white-streaked, is unique and custom-made. You can see that marble is being used for more than simply bench tops and shower stalls. These 36 kitchens show how marble can be used in many different ways to make a cooking space look like a fine dining restaurant.
