64 percent of new homes have granite countertops, making it the most popular material for countertops by far. When purchasing granite countertops, you may consider price, durability and quality. But the most important thing to consider is color. At the end of the day, it’s all about the look. Here are a few things you should consider when deciding what granite color is best for your kitchen.

Keep Your Granite Styles in Check

Countertops can make or break your kitchen’s feng shui. When deciding on the color of your kitchen countertops, it’s important to consider your kitchen style. For instance, if you have a modern kitchen, black-colored granite can enhance its sleek and sharp appearance. On the other hand, if you have a more rustic kitchen, brown-colored granite can add warmth to the space. If you’re feeling bold, you might want to consider a deep blue granite, but make sure your decor is just as fierce.

While it may not seem obvious, your countertop color can make your kitchen look much larger or smaller than it actually is.

Complement or Contrast

After your kitchen countertops, cabinets are probably the most important visual element in your kitchen. When choosing a granite color, you’ll either want to contrast or complement your cabinets’ color. You want your countertops to either blend in with your kitchen or stand-out and pop. Here are some granite and cabinet color combinations to consider:

  • White cabinets with black granite.
  • Brown granite with light-colored cabinets.
  • Dark cabinets with neutral shades of granite.

If you’re considering vibrant greens and reds for your countertop colors, you should pair them with cabinets that have a more muted shade, which will keep the kitchen from looking too loud visually.

It’s Not Always As It Seems…

While it may not seem obvious, your countertop color can make your kitchen look much larger or smaller than it actually is. If you have a big kitchen, you’ll be better off with black granite and other darker tones. On the contrary, if you have a small kitchen, you’ll want to go after granite with lighter tones. Light-colored granite is going to make your kitchen seem larger and brighter. Also, for small kitchens, consider keeping your countertops clear of clutter. Only add necessary decor and functional items that will enhance the overall look of your kitchen.

Went way over and above to take great care of us with our new granite kitchen tops! Andriza worked wonderfully with us! Her installers were great and even installed my under mount sink I bought! Highly recommend this team for any granite or quartz countertops. I couldn't be more pleased with them.

Recently I remodeled my entire kitchen 8/02/22. I used Affordable Concepts for all my Quartz. I must admit that at the beginning there was a communication problem that was resolved. With the help of Walter and my account executive Sylvio all problems were resolved to my satisfaction. The fabricators were all respectful, dedicated and hardworking and the results are beautiful. Thank you all.
