What Colors Do Granite Countertops Come In?

Granite is a natural stone that comes in many shades, colors, and patterns. Slabs can also be dyed, making it easy to ensure your countertops match your flooring and cabinets. The granite slabs can also be cut to have squared, sloped, or rolling edges to add more character.

Tips for Choosing Granite Countertop Colors

Countertops encompass a large part of the room’s aesthetic. If you’ve already decided you want granite countertops, you’ll still need to select a color. With nearly an unlimited number of options, it can be overwhelming, so here are some ways to choose the granite colors for your countertops.

  • Consider the light in the room: if you have a darker space with little natural light, you may want to opt for a lighter granite color. This will help make the room appear larger.
  • Create a balance with your cabinets: you can create a stunning look by selecting a granite color that contrasts with your cabinets.
  • Create a focal piece: many homeowners today are choosing their kitchen island as a focal point and using a contrasting color of granite that’s different from the rest of the kitchen countertops.
  • Stay in the same color family: sticking with the same color family is always a smart choice. Opting for blue tones against predominantly brown colors, for example, may cause them to clash. Choose hues that complement each other rather than compete with one another.
