Granite is one of the most durable and resilient materials for granite, but it’s not just well-known for its sheer toughness. This material can come in a range of color schemes to fit any kitchen design, making it aesthetically pleasing to look at, too.
In this post, Granite Works shares the top three best color schemes for granite countertops.
Black Granite Countertops
This is the classic color scheme for almost every granite countertop. Black granite countertops are usually paired with neutral-colored cabinets to establish a classic look for the kitchen. This color scheme looks very good in kitchens with large windows as the extra light contrasts well with the dim granite color.
Black granite countertops can create a shrinking effect in the kitchen that may not be welcome. To prevent this and create a more complimentary look, we recommend white cabinetry. Instead of causing the space to appear like it’s shrinking, it will become the main focal point of the whole kitchen.
Red Granite Countertops
Granite has a rich history and has been used as decorative pieces since ancient Egypt. While black has a striking look, red granite is bold and offers a more historic appeal.
Red granite countertops usually come with light-colored highlights that provide a good color contrast with richer hues, with the most common being blue, white and silver highlights.
Green Granite Countertops
While it’s an uncommon color scheme, green granite countertops are a great choice if you want an earthier look for your kitchen. Green also compliments painted cabinets and silver hardware very well, and is a perfect match for kitchen spaces with bronze fixtures.
