The marble-look white colour trend is back with a bang in 2023
In recent years the trend has been towards black in kitchens and the return of colour and this has been reflected in Cosentino collections such as Sunlit and Kraftizen. However, one thing has remained intact over the years, and that is the dominance of white marble-look colours in interior design, as it is a timeless and elegant finish that never goes out of fashion.
In 2023, the white marble trend will continue to grow with new designs such as Dekton’s Silverkoast collection, which takes its inspiration from the Malibu coastline. The warm white colours of this collection help to create beautiful, stylish and bright spaces, directly connecting the need for well-being with interior design.
Why white marble-look colours are always in style
For us, natural white marble and the patterns inspired by it are a safe bet when it comes to designing any space. Every year at Cosentino we continue to innovate and go for colours inspired by white marble, as we believe it is a classic look that never goes out of fashion for many reasons:
- Its timeless style and endless patterns and veining mean you will never tire of it.
- The natural beauty of white marble is breathtaking, which is why it has historically been a must-have in the world’s most important buildings.
- It is a design that fits in with all decorative styles. From classic to the most modern and minimalist styles, it suits all types of projects.
- White marble has always been synonymous with elegance, luxury and premium quality, values that are back on trend every year.
- Innovative surfaces such as Dekton and Silestone further enhance the proven strength and durability of marble and can therefore be used for all types of interior surfaces and, in the case of Dekton, also for exterior surfaces.
The advantages of using white marble-look colours in interior design
When we choose white marble-inspired colours for the interior design of a house, there is nothing but advantages.
The first is that white can be incredibly powerful in conveying calm and tranquillity in a space, making it the perfect partner for promoting well-being in the home.
In addition, it manages to create timeless spaces that never go out of fashion, which means that a design remains attractive over the years without the need for refurbishments. Thanks to the resistance and physical properties of surfaces such as Silestone and Dekton, they require little maintenance, unlike natural marble.
White marble surfaces blend perfectly with other noble materials such as wood and metal, creating interesting contrasts and generating different atmospheres, from the most sophisticated and elegant to the most welcoming and modern.
Not to mention their ability to add texture, which is always a winning combination in interior design, as textures generate sensations that are pleasing to the eye and touch and bring a space to life.
The use of white marble-look surfaces other than for the kitchen worktop
Feel free to use white marble-look surfaces for applications other than the kitchen. Thanks to the variety of available thicknesses, Dekton can be used for countless applications:
- Indoor and outdoor flooring
- Bathroom cladding
- Indoor and outdoor kitchens
- Swimming pools
This allows the design of the house to be unified with the same colour in different applications, offering great consistency in interior design. It even connects the inside of the house with the outside, for example by using the same Dekton colour for the entire floor.
Warm white colours in the new Dekton Silverkoast collection
The warmth of white is further enhanced in the new Silverkoast collection, which offers colours that transport us to a trip along the Malibu coastline, giving way to a marble look that infuses serenity and immensity.
Marina, in Velvet finish, and Salina, in Polished finish, pay homage to the whimsical salt patterns left by the low tide on the sand and rocks. The delicate white crests that crown the small dunes left by the water on the sand as it recedes on the beaches of El Matador, El Sol and Punto Cero, materialise in this pattern of grey veins on a white background.
Its design draws inspiration from the classic elegance of Carrara marble, reinterpreted through Dekton’s eyes, merging the beauty of natural stone with the state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge performance. The veins run across the entire slab in perfect asymmetry, generating a balanced contrast and a sophisticated pattern, creating rhythms in the design with minimal repetition.
Malibu and Laguna are ivory-white patterns inspired by the natural treasures of the Santa Monica coastline. The perfect combination of classic and modern, this design is suitable for indoor and outdoor spaces, turning any home into a place of elegance and functional beauty, with the ultimate ultra-compact surface.
This versatile colour features a white base with short veins running through the slab. Its homogeneous and subtle structure makes it easy to fit into any design and to achieve different cuts for a perfect integration. The predominantly white shades of Laguna and Malibu pair beautifully with warm and cool tones alike.
These four colours represent a renewed classic style which makes them ideal for any application, thanks to their various finishes and thicknesses. They can be used both indoors and outdoors, as well as for bathroom, cladding, furniture and many other applications, providing a sleek and balanced design with an unrivalled performance.
