Gray and white marble is an elegant element in any bathroom. Read on to see 20 beautiful marble bathrooms that range from small to large and modern to classic.
It’s no secret that I love me some Carrara marble. In fact, I not only made it the focal point of our kitchen (with both honed marble countertops and a honed marble backsplash), but I even confessed a deep-seeded attachment to the stone (in a totally normal and not-at-all creepy way 😉 ).
So it’s probably no surprise that when – after almost five years of living in this home – we decided to finally tackle the master bath renovation, I knew it would involve some Carrara marble.
So I set out to gather some marble bathroom inspiration… I’ll be back soon to share our actual bathroom design plans for the space (though you can follow along on Instagram in real time if you want!), but for now, I just want to celebrate the versatility and beauty that can be found using marble in the bathroom.
20 Bathrooms with Carrara Marble
Classic Marble Bathrooms
I think gray and white marble makes the perfect classic backdrop. It’s beautiful paired with simple white subway tile and antique clawfoot tubs.
In our super traditional historic colonial, marble tile was the perfect flooring for our small master bathroom makeover.
And it’s stunning with antique wood.
Pairing it with antique French accents like Courtney at French Country Cottage did can give it a shabby elegance, too.
Rustic Modern Bathrooms with Marble
But if formal isn’t your thing, then white marble can go much more rustic or modern when paired with other elements.
These marble stone countertops with primitive shiplap, matte tile, and a floating vanity make for an edgy modern farmhouse look.
And the openness of this marble-floored bathroom feels almost industrial.
And this beautiful bathroom by The Fox Group pairs a variety of marble wall tile and marble floor tile as well as marble countertops with a custom mid-century modern vanity for an upscale modern look.
I love the addition of wood elements in the shower in this beautiful walk in.
And the simplicity of the curvy modern tub in this beautiful space by Studio McGee balances out the traditional large marble wall tiles.
But my favorite is probably this space (also by the talented Studio McGee) with traditional marble subway tiles in the shower, marble mosaic tile on the floor, a light wood vanity, and mixed metal accents.
Marble and Gold Bathrooms
Carrara marble can be extremely glamorous, so it’s no surprise that it’s beautiful paired with gold metals. Just look at this marble shower by Mandarina Studio.
And this enormous, luxurious space by The Fox Group (that floor, though?!)
Marble Bathrooms with Black Accents
But you’re not limited to traditional chrome, transitional polished nickel, or even fancy gold finishes, Carrara marble pairs beautifully with matte black fixtures, as well. I love the simplicity of the contrasts in this shower by Kristal Kelly Design.
And the black freestanding tub and windows by Amy Carman Design? So good.
