Amongst which white marble is a classic selection for home decor. 

White marble, in particular, represents purity and peace wherever it goes. Prominently found in Italy, the country is its largest exporter throughout the world. The pure white marble, in particular, is found in India, known as the Makrana which was used for building the beautiful Taj Mahal.

The stone is very much desirable by homeowners and interior designers for bringing luxury and luminosity to any room. Right here are its beautiful types and uses that can give your space a luxurious look.

5 Types Of White Marble For Home Decor


The marble comes from a quarry in Carrara, located in Italy, making it one of the most favoured white stones of all. It contains a mixture of beige/ gold and grey veining that may vary in size according to the slab. It has a warm background, making it a  fine choice for incorporating a warm and welcoming look for your space. 


With a clean white look, the surface is covered with subtle grey hues. Spotting this beautiful stone is very easy. With white/light grey background and thin, linear and feathery veining, it makes the stone desirable of all other types. Carrara is extremely popular worldwide and has a delicate vulnerability to its aesthetic. Homeowners purchase Carrara marble to use as kitchen countertops and backsplashes, fireplace surrounds, flooring and bathroom interiors. 


Similar to Carrara, but comes with striking brightness which makes it a valuable natural stone. It is almost a hybrid of Carrara and Calacatta in its appearance. It is also a highly sought after material for different residential and commercial projects. This marble works beautifully as a countertop slab or a wall panel, giving an abstract look with its crisscrossed grey veinings.


The stone comes from the island of Thassos in Greece. It has a stark white background which is best for brightening up rooms due to its light-reflection qualities. Thassos marble is often used for staircases, kitchen and bathroom countertops, tabletops, flooring and home accessories.  


Makrana is considered to be a pure white marble for its calcite properties and the less amount of impurities present in it. These properties of Makrana help the colour stay intact for a longer time. It is also available in different shades of grey or pink. It is widely used for flooring due to its striking vibrant appearance. 

Makrana has the lowest water absorption rate amongst all types of marble found in India. Due to the large consistency of calcium carbonate, the stone is strong and translucent which retains the shine for years.

What Are The Different Uses Of White Marble


White marble countertops with matching backsplashes is a classic combination. Kitchen is the centre of attraction that needs extra care and attention. Pairing it up with wooden cabinets and silver or gold hardware is perfect for creating a contemporary look. 


Bathrooms need your special attention. It's your domain and compromising with its look can be a bit problematic. A beautiful freestanding bathtub, combined with darker walls and floors creates a minimal environment. White is a great colour that can be paired up with anything in any space. 


Generally, marble floorings are an instant facelift. The clean look of white surfaces accentuates the interior space with its brightness and elegance. To upgrade the whiteness of the room, you can install wood furnishing, statues and tabletops.
