The various types of marble come from different areas on the globe, including Italy, Spain, Greece, Sweden, Russia, US or Romania. Carrara marble is possibly the most common type of all. It comes from Italy and it’s also among the most affordable types or marble. It can be distinguished by its white, gray or blue-gray coloring and linear veining which can either be small and fine or soft and feathery. In the kitchen, marble is often used ad countertops and backsplashes.
More than that, a chalkboard backsplash is like a canvas, which allows creating any art and notes that you want. This way you personalize the space much more and it becomes more original. Your kids will be happy to chalk on the backsplash while you are cooking and you can chalk down a recipe on it, too. To give yourself and your family more space for creativity, go for a whole chalkboard wall, not just a backsplash.
