When decorating your home on a budget, lining up your walls and floors with white marble may be a costly approach. However you can still add this touch of luxury in smaller proportions. Here I list a couple of easy ways to do it:

1- Dining Table.
This is an interesting alternative to wood and glass tables.
Styling tip: If you’re the type that hosts frequent dinner parties, this option may not be for you, seeing that food spills will stain your white marble if not cleaned immediately.

2- Funiture complements.
No furniture selection is complete without a set of low tables. As for white marble, I love how it can be discretely incorporated in center and side tables.

3- Decorative Objects.

4- Desk.
White marble is a heavy duty material, and I like how it can give a desk a sculptural and sleek look.

A white marble top not only keeps a glossy sideboard scratch free, but can also give it a more sophisticated look

5- Sideboard Tops.
I am not a fan of lacquer finished tops. They easily get scratched and loose their shine. A white marble top can be a great solution and can definitely give it a fuller look.

6- Bathroom Countertop and Sinks.
This is great for creating contrast in your bathroom and drawing the attention to your sinks.

 

Ready-made white marble furniture may not be common, but one the best part about it is that it’s very easy to customize. Happy furniture hunting!
