It’s hard to believe it’s been a decade since the last marble counter top was released.
But that’s exactly what’s happening right now, with a flurry of marble products and accessories from companies like EZBrush and Marblesmith.
And that means you’ll want to create a marble counter to match the look and feel of your home.
But you don’t need to buy the marble you see on your counter, if you already have an existing marble counter.
There are a few key steps you’ll need to take to get started.
Decide how much marble you want to use.
Deciding how much you want your marble counter will depend on how much work you want done and whether you’re looking to replace your existing marble or build something entirely new.
For some, that may mean a marble desk or even a marble dining table.
For others, it could mean using the marble to add a touch of character to your home, or adding a little more style to your kitchen.
Get a marble template.
Decks are often a good place to start, but a marble planer is the best way to create marble counters.
It’s an easy-to-use tool that you can use to create intricate marble-style designs.
Determine the material you want.
You’ll want a sturdy, high-quality, non-abrasive material like wood or marble.
If you’re building a counter, it may make sense to go with a non-porous material, like polyurethane or acrylic.
But for the most part, marble is soft and will take a long time to cure.
For a more durable material, consider polypropylene, or polyester.
Choose a size.
If your counter is just a small space, then the easiest way to find the right size is to get a marble model.
If it’s more of a big space, you may want to consider a marble cabinet, which will have a large marble counter and the marble counter mounted on a shelf.
For more marble counter space, try choosing a size that’s more like a dining table or a full-size marble counter in the living room.
Decorate the marble.
This isn’t an exact science, but you’ll find that you’ll probably want to paint the marble in various shades.
You may also want to include a marble accent to make the look more like the interior of your house.
You can use different colors of marble to create some pretty stunning accents.
For instance, if your counter has a marble centerpiece, you can include a small window to make your home look more open and inviting.
Paint the marble marble.
After you’ve painted the marble, you’ll likely want to give it a coat of paint.
Marbles that are opaque will usually take longer to cure, so you’ll be able to paint it in a paintbrush and then add some gloss.
For even more control, you could paint the marbles in a spray-on paint that you apply to your marble counters every day.
Add a window.
Some marble counters can be mounted on either a ceiling or wall, but they’re usually best placed above a window or on a low shelf.
If that’s not possible, you’re likely to want to attach a glass window that can be set into the marble so that it looks more like your kitchen or living room or even your bedroom.
Build your marble marble counter using materials from the catalog.
When choosing materials for your marble kitchen counter, be sure to choose non-plastic and glass marble.
Some brands even offer marble counters that can hold up to 10 pounds.
And if you’re ordering from the internet, you should know that some of the marble products you purchase from the Marblesmart catalog are actually sold in bulk.
So, when shopping for marble counter pieces, be aware that you may be buying a marble that you’ve never even seen before.
Decorate your marble with decor.
Marble counters can also be decorated with fabric and paper or with natural stones.
Some people choose to decorate their marble countertops with a marble “skeleton,” which is a wooden block that can act as a table or dining table in your living room and can be used as a decorative counter for your dining room.
Another option is to add marble accents, which are a mix of different colors and styles.
For example, you might want a marble wall that’s covered in black paint, then a marble table that’s decorated with a light blue carpet and then marble chairs with red accents.
If the marble accents add a bit of character, add a little bit of color and create a bit more of an effect, too.
And for the ultimate marble counter, decorate it with natural stone accents.

You might also want a set of marble counter shelves, so that your marble desk and marble dining tables are actually in the same place
