The word “Marble” comes from the Greek word Marmaron, literally giving it the meaning shining stone. While its appearance may suggest otherwise, marble is surprisingly easy to carve due to its softness and is hence an extremely popular choice in sculpting.

 

We’ve all been in awe some time or the other of marble structures, given their regal nature and sophisticated look. One of the best examples would be the Taj Mahal in India, the memorial built by Mughal emperor Shahjahan in honour of his departed wife Mumtaz Mahal. Other such marvels are the Lincoln Memorial statue, the Vatican Museum and ST. Peter's Basilica. 

 

 

Marble isn’t really inexpensive, but when used well, it can add wonders to your home decor in an efficient manner. Check out a few places in your home where you can incorporate marble structures.

 

Countertops

Arguably the favourite place to display a beautiful, smooth span of cool white marble. One could even extend the countertop to make an enviable kitchen island by laying the sides with marble as well.
