An onyx kitchen is something truly superb, a unique creation capable of conferring great elegance, but also modernity, to the most diverse domestic spaces. When we talk about natural stones, we usually think exclusively of marble or granite. However, calcareous onyx, an evocative material with very heterogeneous colors, definitively stands out among these materials.

Nowadays, interior design aims at creating not only functional but also emotional environments, able to captivate senses and colors: materials prove to be fundamental for this purpose. Firstly, natural materials, if worked by skilled hands, are perfect in order to realize practical and customized solutions for an incredibly beautiful and refined onyx marble kitchen, whether it is classic, or more modern. The limit is your own taste. It is no coincidence that Dedalo Stone designs and manufactures bespoke onyx kitchens and has chosen this noble and precious material because of its industrially inimitable and rare exceptional characteristics.

One of the main peculiarities of calcareous onyx is its being translucent and hence it is particularly suitable for being backlit. Depending on the extraction point, it is available in infinite shades such as white, green, orange, honey, brown and red. But it is the natural color of the so-called Tiger Onyx that has aroused more acclaim for its warm and enigmatic streaks that recall the tiger’s royal coat.
Let’s discover the characteristics of a backlit kitchen, its beauty and austerity as well as the infinite possibilities of realization by Dedalo Stone, leader in the field of furnishings in marble, stone and onyx, totally made in Italy.

Furthermore, light is a smart element, indispensable in domestic rooms and an undisputed and functional means to create unique, dreamy, relaxing and almost magical environments.
Thanks to calcareous onyx, the onyx kitchen can take on different stylistic aspects: it can be modern but also classic and match very well with wooden furnishings of the most varied essences.

Even a design table in onyx for the kitchen will give indoor design stability and harmony. Therefore, is onyx good for kitchen countertops? Yes, of course.
