Pure Elegance: Fall In Love With Marble Bathrooms 

Decorating with marble guarantees elegance on all levels. Marble bathrooms are absolutely breathtaking, and their truest magic lies in the fact that marble can be paired with many different color shades and materials. This way, you can add your preferred choice of decor, be it wood or copper, to an already stunning bathroom and take it from breathtaking to outstanding!

Check out our favorite marble pairings below, and don’t forget to add this to your dream bathroom Pinterest board; it’s time for your dreams to come true!

Marble and Wood

Combining modern with traditional is always a special experience. The wish to make your bathroom as modern as possible is hard to resist, but that inner feeling of wanting to keep some elements classic and traditional is hard to silence. You can easily have the best of both worlds by dressing your bathroom up in marble and then sprinkling it with wooden decor!  See the results below!

A narrow bathroom can really benefit from marble decor! Look at this example for inspiration! It looks spacious and bright, perfected by neatly decorated wooden shelves!

Pairing your marble bathroom with some wooden cabinets breaks the feeling of a monotonous room where everything looks the same.

Even a more subtle shade of wood will do amazingly, enhancing the calm feeling of a bathroom and making it seem almost like a sanctuary or a home spa.

The three stunning bathrooms above are a fantastic exhibit of how a simple wooden addition defines the energy of the entire bathroom. Marble, however beautiful, can be quite cold, and it’s natural to wish for some warmth. A beautiful wooden area under the sink and its counter will perfectly balance the raw marble look!

You can, of course, emphasize the wooden decor instead, adding marble as a balancing element rather than the other way around. Take a look at how it was done in this apartment for endless great ideas.

The bathrooms above showcase a contrast between pairing marble with dark black wood or pale white. The great thing about marble is that it will work with both, adapting to your chosen choice of wood like a true chameleon. Paired with a mystical black, it enhances the elegance of the room, but when put together with white, it will make your bathroom glow!

Marble and Copper

Some combinations are so perfect it’s hard to believe they are real – but they are! Not only that, you can recreate them in your very own home and gush over them every single day. Marble and copper are one of those combinations; the gentleness of marble and the metallic roughness of copper create the perfect balance and leave you in awe!

 It can be as simple as adding copper sinks and little lights, as displayed in this bathroom because copper will draw attention to itself immediately!

Copper pipes are also a winner, and while they are but minimal, they too can easily catch the eye!

If your love of copper knows no limit, add it in abundance! Your bathroom will get an industrial look, softened by the touch of marble!

Adding a copper shower to your marble bathroom is a lucrative way to spice up the marble environment. You can still enjoy the look of an almost all-marble bathroom, but allow the shower to be that special element that acts as a cherry on top and gives the bathroom a focal point. Every room should have a center of attention, and a copper shower will be just that!

Of course, your focal point doesn’t necessarily have to be a shower; it can also be a copper mirror! Neatly placed above the double vanity (that can either be marble or copper as well – you can see above that both will do wonderfully), it captivates you immediately upon walking into the bathroom, almost compelling you to look at it in awe!

Marble and Neutral Tones

Marble, neutral in itself, goes amazingly with non-invasive, calming, neutral colors. Shades of gray and black seem to be destined for a love affair with marble. Your bathroom should be a calming space, one where you can relax and unwind both before and after a tiring day. These marble bathrooms in neutral tones are certainly perfect for that!

When done properly, neutral tones are anything but boring. Even the smallest addition of them can help create a calm and serene ambiance.

This bathroom is decorated in gray tones, creating a sacred space for anyone who isn’t too keen about colorful and vivid decor. If neutrals feel like home to you, by all means, use them in abundance!

You can’t deny that neutral shades create a consistency, one that you can easily carry into any room of your home. Starting with the bathroom, allow the grayness to bind your decor together as if giving it a purpose.

No matter how big the bathroom is, the neutral tones will make it feel comfortable and homey. Isn’t this something we all wish for? Check out this look that is both simple and elegant.

Indeed, neutral tones are calming and simple, but that doesn’t mean your bathroom can’t look glamorous. Of course, it can! Just look at this incredible bathroom and embrace the marble! Glamour at its finest!

Marble and Gold

If you want your daily routines to stop feeling monotonous, adding some gold to your bathroom will go a long way. It instantly transforms a room from normal to royal, taking it to a whole new level. Everybody is smitten with a little bliss! The marble bathrooms below all have an element of gold in them, creating a luxurious bathroom that used to be the stuff of dreams but can now be your everyday reality!

Adding shades of gold to your shower instantly enhances the look of the entire bathroom. Your morning showers will no longer feel random, they will feel noble! Aristocratic inspiration idea that will help you decorate your bathroom.

The combination of black and gold is a foolproof recipe for elegance, but who knew it works so well together with marble as well? If you love nobility, this styling is for you!

Maybe your addition of golden elements will be rather minimal, like this idea, but that doesn’t mean that it won’t greatly impact the look of the whole room. Sometimes magic lies in the details, so leave nothing to chance!

Another great example of the dance between black, gold, and marble is this gorgeous bathroom. Every single element in this bathroom plays an important part in the big picture, but it goes without saying that marble is the one who brings it all home.
