It might sound like a new game idea or fancy move performed by gymnasts, but in fact a tumbled marble backsplash is made in exactly the way it sounds: by tumbling marble to create a worn, rustic surface.

Like ceramic or laminate tile, these backsplashes are extremely versatile, lending an interesting look to kitchens ranging from classic to contemporary style. However, like slate, the tumbled marble backsplash will require a coat or two of sealant to prevent mold from growing on the porous surface.

Create a simple tumbled marble backsplash by using square tiles in a white, beige, tan or other neutral color. If you are seeking something for a country or rustic style kitchen, then consider using tumbled marble that is yellow, white or even blue to create a down-home feeling. Use a tumbled marble backsplash in a modern kitchen area by using black, white, slate or even bold colors, like orange or red to complete a design.

Tumbled marble in shades of gorgeous blue, like aqua or faded denim, can also look stunning in a bright, crisp kitchen area. Stagger the various colors in an interesting pattern to create a beautiful mosaic backsplash.
