Polytec Product Design & Development Specialist, Interior Designer and Trend Forecaster Marylou Cafaro, explains how to choose the right cabinetry to match our newest marble design - Empira White




Empira white is a beautiful representation of an elegant yet contemporary style marble that can be used in many design styles. Although the vein is a contrast inky dark colour it has a subtleness to it that gives it longevity.

Marble designs are timeless and desirable. The individual character and look of marble designs guarantees a quality designed space that can be personalised to suit your taste with either complementary or contrast Polytec doors or both!


What is your advice for embracing the resurgence of the marble trend?

Marylou: There are a handful of interior elements that are considered classics that never date. A white marble inspired design like Empira White is one of them. Marble, like timber, has been used for centuries and are considered quality materials and both highly desired for joinery.

Caesarstone with marble veining not only adds interest and character to the benchtop but instantly creates a welcoming timeless look.

The marble look is the easiest to work with, in any style especially when teamed with the Polytec range of oak or walnut timber prints or profiled thermo doors, as this benchtop look is universally appealing.



Why are Ultra White Venette and Oxford Venette the perfect complement to Empira White?

Marylou: The colour of Polytec’s ultra white venette for doors, coordinates perfectly with the Empira White base colour.

As many kitchens adopt a contrast colour as well as complementary colour for the doors, the new Polytec Oxford venette draws inspiration from the inky dark tones in the marble veining of Empira White.

The dark blue Polytec Oxford colour can help to create either a refined industrial-style space, a sophisticated contemporary design style or a relaxed coastal inspired look.


What colour palette of furnishings and style of finishes would you recommend for this look?

Marylou: With a base palette of Empira White, clean ultra white and sophisticated Oxford, you can create many styles.

RELAXED - By adding oak flooring or furniture, you can create a relaxed feel.

COASTAL HAMPTON - By adding white tiles and blue accessories, you can create a coastal Hampton feel, especially if you include a profiled door.

REFINED INDUSTRIAL - By adding a concrete or terrazzo style floor, a more sophisticated industrial look.
