Whether it’s a permanent fixture in your bathroom or kitchen, or you’re dreaming of the days when you can plaster the stone all over your beachside mansion, there’s no denying the beauty, versatility, and strength of marble. But it was Kanye West of all people who put a particular type—Carrara—on the map after his over-the-top nuptials with wife Kim Kardashian.

The controversial rapper, never one to skimp on the details, famously ordered a custom marble piano, massive marble table, and 10 marble statues for the cliffside ceremony, all hailing from the mines of Carrara, Italy. Needless to say, Yeezy can have quite the influence on trends and pop culture, which led to a 30% increase in Carrara marble sales since 2009.

Since most of us are Carrara-marble minded, but on a laminate budget, the easiest way to incorporate marble into our living spaces is through accessories. And what better way to upgrade your boring kitchen than with Carrara marble-inspired tools and gadgets?

We’ve rounded up some of the most affordable (and beautiful!) options we could find. Scroll down for budget-friendly design ideas and you too can live a life like Kanye (or at least fake it until you make it).
