Are you preparing to upgrade your kitchen countertops? Granite is a wise choice if you’re looking for a beautiful, durable surface. This is one of the original stones ever used as a countertop, and it remains an affordable luxury to this day.
Once you settle on a material, it’s time to select a color and pattern. Your options are more numerous than you may realize, with looks ranging from dark and sparkly to white and veiny. Granite countertops can lend an air of unassuming elegance, or they can act as a bold focal point. They look right at home in a country farmhouse as well as a modern high rise. It all comes down to which variety you choose.
Consider these top five most popular granite colors to incorporate in your remodeling project.
With Alaska White granite, you’ll notice a predominantly white background with dark flecks throughout. The light color makes this a popular choice for countertops, backsplashes, and fireplace surrounds. Its silver undertones pair beautifully with grey color schemes. Rest assured that Alaska White works well with both light and dark-colored cabinets.
The semi-solid pattern of Black Pearl makes this granite slab look almost pure black from far away. Take a step closer, and you’ll see gorgeous speckles of black, silver, gold, brown, and green. The polished, reflective surface helps prevent Black Pearl granite from overpowering the space, despite its dark color.
For something a little less neutral, try Blue Pearl. The gorgeous shades of metallic blue are muted slightly by speckles of black and grey for just the right amount of iridescence. Designers most often recommend pairing Blue Pearl granite with white cabinetry and silver-hued hardware for a combination that really pops!
Another predominantly white stone, this color differs from Alaska White in that it has more contrast between its light and dark areas. Striking black veins create an angular appearance that helps Delicatus White granite stand out from the rest. Pair this countertop with black cabinets to make a statement, or combine it with white cabinetry to achieve a timeless look.
This elegant granite countertop is characterized by its cool grey and blue speckles set on a white background. The natural mica found in this slab lends a touch of sparkle that makes it desirable for both indoor and outdoor use. Lna Pearl granite also makes a great backsplash, tub surround, or vanity countertop.
