You can go with a Magma Gold, Alaskan White or Chocolate Bordeaux. If none of those seem to fit your style, you can work with the Emerald Pearl, the Coffee Brown with a Suede Finish or the Fantasy Blue.

Or maybe you you just want to hedge your bets and go with the African Rainbow.

Yes, when it comes to the color of your granite kitchen countertops, you’ve got options.

Luckily, you’ve also got access to experts with extensive experience helping people choose, fabricate and install the perfect granite kitchen countertops. Here are some tips from the experts at Arch City Granite and Marble on selecting the right color:

Pay attention to the details

Choosing the right color is all about nuance. You need to make sure you understand how the paint on the walls interacts with the flooring and how the flooring interacts with the cabinet finish–and how the granite you choose will interact with everything. Try to find samples of each color in your kitchen–including your appliances–and bring it to the showroom with you.

Visit a showroom

The Internet is a wonderful tool, but it simply can’t capture every detail when it comes to a slab of granite. Make sure you visit a showroom and inspect the granite with your own eyes. Bring your kitchen color samples with you and put them all together next to granite slabs you like. You will be surprised how you notice subtle nuances.

Look up at the lighting

The lighting you have in your kitchen will go a long way toward determining how your granite kitchen countertops appear. When you are selecting your color, talk to your fabricator about the kind of lighting you have and remember that granite with significant whites and golds works well with limited light. Dark granite does well with lots of light.

Ask a lot of questions

Your granite kitchen countertops are an investment in your home’s aesthetics and value. They can last a lifetime–yours as well as your home’s. Choosing the right color is important, so lean on the experts with whom you work. Ask them lots of questions. They’ve helped countless others just like you find just the right color for their granite kitchen countertops.
