Granite is a rich and luscious natural stone that can be used in a number of applications, but what makes it really stand out as a favorite choice for kitchen countertops is that it’s durable, sustainable and timeless. Each piece of granite is a wholly unique work of art created by Mother Nature, and the colors and variety of veining and mottling details are endless.
In fact, it’s this vast number of color and design options could make it difficult to find the right granite color for your kitchen. To assist in your search, this guide will help you narrow down your granite color choices.
Clean and bright, white granite works just as well with in an ultramodern kitchen as it does with a more rustic design. White granite makes smaller kitchens feel bigger. It’s also starkly beautiful when paired with white cabinets, especially if you choose hardware that matches the grey and black veins that run through it.
Warmer and more subtle than white, beige granite features brown, grey and black tones. Beige granite is a popular choice because it’s versatile and works well with both light and dark cabinets and a variety of appliances. It’s also particularly lovely with hardwood floors and walls painted in warm colors.
Ranging from light tan to deep, velvety chocolate, brown granite is perfect for a rustic or country-style kitchen. Darker browns work better with lighter cabinets, while lighter browns pair nicely with darker cabinets. The variation of hues in brown granite can help tie various wooden components of the kitchen together.
If you’re looking for a wow factor for your kitchen, black granite won’t disappoint. Ranging from nearly solid black to black with specks and veins of silver and grey, black granite is stark and dramatic, and it works well in both contemporary and rustic kitchens. It makes a bold statement when paired with light cabinets and lends itself nicely to colorful accessories.
