Marble is sometimes a controversial material when you’re talking kitchen counters. It’s easy to stain it, and is not necessarily simple to care for and maintain. However, when we’re talking marble in the bathroom, it’s hard to find any marble haters out there.

It’s a gorgeous, classic choice for almost any style bathroom. And if your budget allows for it, it’s honestly hard to go wrong when using marble in your space.  This stunning bath from designer Mark Williams is the stuff that dreams are made of.

There are, however, a number of ways to use this material in your bathroom, and we’ve rounded up 10 of our faves. If you’re looking to bring some marble into your bathroom, here are some ideas to steal.

Black marble lines the floors, walls and countertops of this luxurious and traditional bathroom. A glass-enclosed shower with detachable shower nozzles completes the opulent look.

When most people think of marble, white Carrara marble is what usually comes to mind. But designer Jennifer Duneler reminds us that there is actually a ton of a variety when it comes to marble…including this chic veined black marble. Much like granite, marble comes in many different colors and styles. So don’t feel limited to simply choosing white.

Bathroom with Marble Step

A deep sunken tub is entered by stepping up from the floor to a marble step. Brown tiles line the walls that surround the tub, which has a lip on which is a small vase filled with white flowers and green foliage.

Marble also works great as an accent in a bathroom. In this example, designer Brian Patrick Flynn created a super stylish space with a marble step leading up to the freestanding bathtub.

You can easily use marble on your bathroom counter, or instead, create a floating marble vanity like this one from designer Breeze Giannasio. This is a great choice in a master bath where you want to create space for two sinks. It also allows you to use the space underneath for storage.

While marble works great as an accent in a bathroom, it can also look gorgeous if you use it on all surfaces of the bathroom. In this stylish bathroom from Design Development, they used wall-to-wall marble and the result is truly show-stopping.

If you’re hoping to update your bathroom with marble but have a more limited budget, you might want to consider marble subway tiles. Designer Marianne Brown shows off this marble subway tile beautifully in this small bathroom. You could use the tile in a smaller spot such as a backsplash above the sink, or in a larger space in the bathroom as in this space.

A beautiful marble tub like this one from designer Michael Habachy makes a stunning centerpiece for an elegant bathroom. Even if you simply have a tub/shower combo, you can use marble on the front of the tub surround to create a similar look.

It’s hard to go wrong with a light, bright marble shower. In this bathroom from Blackband Design they chose a simple glass shower door and modern nickel fixtures to go along with the marble tiles. The combination works perfectly.

A little round table beside the bathtub is just the right size for a pretty vase of flowers or a candle or two. It also picks up the color of the tub's brass hardware.
