Choosing Your Granite Colors

Granite colorsSelecting a colour scheme for your new countertops or granite designs can be exciting since granite is one stone that comes in an abundance of colors and shades. Because granite is a beautiful material that exudes top-of-the-line quality and excellence, it is difficult to make the wrong colour or style choice

How to Decide

When you have so many options, the decision process can be time-consuming. To aid you in your selection, it is a good idea to bring samples of your cabinet material, paint colour and even backsplash piece with you to the granite showroom or warehouse. Once you have the selection narrowed down you can then do an overall assessment of the type of atmosphere you want to create with your new renovation. While different colors help create a room's atmosphere, it is important to keep in mind the feeling that you are trying to create. Granite's naturalness is affected by the amount of light that filters into your space so the look and feel will vary accordingly and may be different than when you see it in the showroom.

Updated and Modern

For an updated look that reflects a more modern home, many people find themselves drawn to the darker shades of granite. Granite is one material that will not darken a room with black countertops. In fact, because of its ability to reflect light, dark shades of granite can anchor a room without overwhelming it. Black granite countertops and other shades of gray match well with darker paint shades and oak cabinets, as well as with stainless steel appliances making kitchens look highly sleek and modern.

A Warm Atmosphere

Regardless of its modern qualities, some can find black to be a bit too bold. It is possible to create that same modern feel with granite colors that are warmer such as mauves, greens and browns. These colors can be a little more difficult to match with cabinets and appliances they are excellent choices for homeowners who are going into newly made houses and can select all materials from the start. This way, you can get professional advice on how to perfectly match your granite colors with your cabinets and appliances.
Whites and beiges are also a great choice if you wish to create a light and airy kitchen or bathroom atmosphere. These shades of granite colors will go with any style of appliance or cabinet and are always a safe bet.
