Selecting the right granite countertop color is a personal and ultimately long-lasting decision.

Serious thought must be paid to it because, let’s face it, you don’t want to select a red countertop and then realize ‘oh no! I’m a gray person!’

Installing a countertop is a decision that provides great value, as it’s a home fixture that will last you a long time. So, let’s make sure we get it right the first time.

 

Dark Granite Kitchen Countertops

 

If smokey and elegant is more like the vibe you’re going for try out a dark color. A dark countertop paired with slightly lighter cabinets is a classic look.

Certain rooms have certain granite countertop color options that seem to simply work well. In rooms that feature large windows and an ample supply of natural light, a dark countertop can be more easily pulled off.

Dark countertops are elegant, subtle, and provide a timeless look regardless of the room. Though, as with dark paint, backsplashes, and wallpaper, dark home fixtures can create a shrinking effect, engulfing the space in shadow, limiting the eye to a degree.

That’s why some people like to juxtapose light island counters with dark surrounding countertops.

Obviously, though, this does not go for everyone. Some people simply love the rich look of a dark brown, black, or gray countertops. There’s no wrong way to go about it. Ultimately it comes down to your preference.

Light countertops work particularly well if you have white or light-colored tiles on the floor in your kitchen, bathroom, or bar area. A light counterop can produce a very welcoming, rustic feel.

A cream colored or light brown granite countertop often creates a summery or beach-like feel, regardless of the room it rests in. Adding or changing a kitchen backsplash is a remarkably easy way to transform your kitchen.

 

If you are going for the contemporary look in your kitchen, you should definitely consider stacked, multi-colored glass mosaic tiles as an option.

Obviously, a granite countertop is a centerpiece, so having it blend in anonymously probably isn’t what you’re going for. Making sure that the granite countertop color is complimented by the surrounding fixtures is, well, ideal.

    A friend of mine recently redid his kitchen and replaced his old countertops with black granite. I really like the look, which makes a great contrast with other lighter colors in the kitchen. I would love to replace my current countertops, but I think that to do so I would need to redo more of my kitchen to make it look nice.
