Granite Color Choices
Color Selections for Granite Countertops
Selecting a granite color to complement your kitchen or bath can be a difficult decision. Granite is available in a wide array of colors, from dark black and blue to lighter browns and beiges and even greens and reds. You want to take into account your flooring and cabinets and choose a color that will complement or contrast with them.
Typically, designers recommend selecting a dark granite color countertop with lighter color cabinets and using one of the lighter colors of granite when using dark cabinets. When in doubt, classic black granite countertops are always in style and work well with any style of flooring or cabinets.
Granite Countertop Colors
Granite countertop colors can be grouped roughly into six different color bases. Starting from most popular they are:
Black – Coming from Sweden, Australia and South Africa, classic black granite is the most popular color choice. Texture in the black coloring is provided by the feldspar and quartz mix.
Blue or Azul – A base of blue is augmented by lighter shades of white, and darker streaks of gray or black. This stone is found in Spain and Brazil.
White – White granite isn’t truly white because of the varying elements mixed in. Ivory, gray and black patterns break up the overall white tone. Quarried in Italy, China, and Brazil.
Copper or Gold – The warm tones and striking metallic flakes make this a unique choice. Brazil and Italy provide the primary stocks of this stone.
Green – A consistent base is complemented by gray, rose and blue shades. Indian granite can have rose tones while Norwegian green granite tends to include blues.
Red – Mostly mined in China and Brazil, the basic red can range from lavender to dusky rose with streaks of black or gray.
