Marble worktops continue to reign supreme in 2023. The allure of this luxurious and natural material is irresistible to homeowners seeking a touch of elegance. According to Richard Davonport, managing director at Davonport, the demand for real marble worktops is on the rise. The classic appeal and glamour of marble effortlessly enhance any kitchen space, be it through work surfaces or statement islands.
Marble isn’t just about aesthetics; it offers functional benefits too. It’s cold to the touch, making tasks like kneading dough for pastries a breeze. The marble-look trend is transitioning from a passing fad to a design staple, with a focus on matte or soft sheen finishes that exude sophistication, as noted by David Hird, area manager for retail at Laminam.
