It’s the Little Things
There is a lot to be said for the little things in life, including drawer pulls and cabinet knobs. Take a good look around your bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen at all the different knobs and pulls you can easily replace with marble.

Spruce Up Your Desk
Marble desk accessories are becoming very popular. You can find in/out trays, pen holders, tape dispensers, and more in a range of marble colors to suit your décor and tastes. Maybe not as cheap as those plastic or metal mesh ones at the nearby office supply store, but then what price can you put on a neat way to spruce up the look of your desk.
Be On Time Every Time
One of the latest trends in marble is the simple clock. There are a number of desktop and wall mounted clocks made from marble or with a marble finish. These offer a very chic way to decorate your home without spending a fortune.
Everyone likes the idea of adding marble countertops to their kitchen or bathroom. The big problem is countertops like these can cost a fortune unless you know how to shop for them. Today, there are a number of distributors who can provide you with cultured marble that is produced in a factory rather than naturally quarried stone. Cultured marble is just as beautiful as natural stone but typically costs less. The best way to find out if this type of marble is in your budget is to contact local suppliers to see what they have to offer and how much they would charge to cut, deliver, and install your new countertops.
Marble has long been one of the most popular materials for use in the more expensive homes. But, as you can see, you don’t have to spend a fortune to add a touch of class to your home. Take a look around, you might be surprised at the wide variety of marble accessories available to add a touch of class to your home.
