Granite countertop slabs come in many different colors, sizes and textures. Granite is a natural stone formation and is mined from the ground. These natural formations have variations in color and texture due to the surrounding environment and the natural occurrences that created them many millions of years ago.

Granite being a natural product means that no 2 pieces or areas will be alike. This adds to the beauty of the product and the complexity of implementation. Granite is harvested from quarries all over the world. Most of the more common granites come from countries outside of the United States due to many factors but mainly the demand for the versatility of colors.

How to choose

How to choose a granite countertop colors? Many factors should be considered when selecting the right stone for you. Cabinet color and design, Wall color, your homes style (modern, contemporary, etc.), Personal preference, and reason for purchase(resale, or upgrading).

Cabinets, Walls, Floors, home style: These factors determine the color and movement of the stone that you choose. If your home is modern than typically you would not choose a stone with a lot of movement and vast variations in color. You would choose something that is more solid in color and less variation in color from one spot on the stone to the other. Do you want the stone to be the focal point of the room or do you want the tone to blend more naturally with your homes design. You may want to consult a profession when making this decision because it is an important one. If you are thinking about resale as the motivation for the upgrade keep in mind that your taste or even the taste of a specific designer may not match with the perspective buyers tastes so be sure to select a more subtle granite. One that would be least offensive to the most people and simply adds value to the sale. Uba Tuba , Coffee brown and many of your stones from brazil are very common and typically cost less because of these exact characteristics.

How to pick your granite colors

Step 1 First of all, determine if you want a dark or light granite. If your kitchen is dark to begin with, a dark top will only make it darker. So, rule of thumb, dark kitchen is best suited with a lighter granite. If you have a light kitchen, meaning it gets a lot of light in there, you can go either light or dark.

Step 2 Next, decide if you want a granite that has movement and/or veining in it, or if you want something that is more consistent in pattern. Things to consider are: if your floor has a busy pattern to it, you want a granite that is not busy. You don't want the two to compete. Also, if have an existing back splash that you want to keep, look at the pattern in it (if there is one). If it has no pattern, you choose a granite that has a pattern it. Again, do not make the two compete. A granite that has a lot of movement and/or veining in it best in a kitchen that has a lot of counter space. That way you can get the full effect of the pattern. A small kitchen will only feel smaller if you choose a granite with a lot going on in the pattern.

Step 3 Take one of you cabinet doors with you when you go to look at granite colors. This way you can visualize the colors together better. Usually, if you have light cabinets, go with a darker granite. Contrast is good. This makes the focal point your countertops. This is what you want...right?

Step 4 Put all these tips together to choose the perfect granite countertop. Once you order the stone, ask them for a sample piece so you can take it to you home and view it in your lighting. Your lighting will always be different than that of a store.
