Granite Countertops Colors


Brown, beige, and similar shades are the most common granite countertop colors. Because of their neutral tones, they mix together in with almost any type of kitchen, from classic themes to edgy, contemporary ones. They are a great choice if you like to redesign your kitchen, as they go well with any color.


Solid black is also called absolute black granite or an interesting pattern with little stones, crystals, or color striations. Black granite is less common than brown countertops, and thus more expensive, but other deep shades (like dark blue or dark green) make great alternatives.


Although less popular than brown, green granite is fairly affordable and adds natural color to any kitchen. It comes in various shades, from pale sea green to deep bottle green, and also a wide range of patterns.


It is one of the most expensive countertop materials, but a great choice if you want to spice up your kitchen décor. A red granite countertop against muted colors will be the focal point of any room, regardless of its size, shape and shade. It is seldom available in solid color, but there are lots of interesting patterns to choose from. Common color combinations are black, pearl, and brown.


Blue granite is becoming a favorite among designers and homeowners because of its versatility. It works well with practically any home décor – indoor plants, wooden cabinets, stone sinks, and glass dividers. Some of the most common shades are lavender blue, royal blue, and ice blue, sapphire blue. Lavender blue is a pale shade perfect for brightening up a small kitchen, while sapphire blue adds a splash of color to a neutral-toned room. Ice blue countertops look great with wood cabinets and shades of cream, beige, and yellow.
