Elegant and beautiful, marble textures make a great background for a variety of projects. Marble always brings an air of exquisite polish to a design, with its lustrous look and visually pleasing patterns. And when it comes to these backgrounds, you’ve got a lot of options.

Do you want something smooth and shiny, like a refined countertop? Or a look more rocky, imperfect, and natural? Or maybe even a colorful, out-of-this-world texture inspired by marble’s distinctive patterns?

We’ve collected examples of each, so you can choose the texture that best fits your design. Whites, grays, browns, vibrant colors and soft pastels, rough textures and shiny patterns – there’s a little bit of everything here!
