Granite Countertop Selections

When we found the original home we loved, I think the part that I loved the most were the kitchen cabinets. They were an almost antique cream with a small brown inlay. I decided that I HAD to have those cabinets. I would marry those cabinets and have their cabinet babies. So they were at the top of my list for upgrades when we decided to build.

Here is a pic of the cabinets:

The original house we looked at had black granite countertops with them... which I did love, but now that I have a CHOICE, I want to explore my options.

Here are a few I found. Try to ignore the cabinets (though it's nice they are a
ll white and similar to what we'll have) and just try to picture my cabinets with these different color granites.

Choice #1 - Neutral White/Gray

Choice #2 - Neutral White/Tan

Choice #3 - With a warmer, bronze-almost finish

Choice #4 - Slate

Choice #5 - Black

Choice #6 - Chocolate Brown
So there are some options. As always, leave a comment if you have any insight to granite countertops. If you love your black ones because of X or dislike that your gray does X. Keep in mind that we'll be choosing a tile backspalsh as well, so that might be a vote at a later date!

And vote, vote, vote!

PS: If your a Blogger novice, you should be able to click on the pictures and it will hopefully make them larger.


  1. I'd choose #3 or black for myself, but this is your house. :) I like the chocolate brown (which I see has the most votes right now, woot!) because it provides a contrast. My friend's parents' house has an all white/cream kitchen and it's too bright and washed out. JUST my opinion though!

  2. what kind of chocolate granite is that. what is the name of it?

  3. Granite Countertop create a very durable. Granite is an excellent choice for countertops. Granite is available in polished and matte finishes. While granite may be more expensive than some other materials, its longevity adds immeasurable value.

  4. You did such a wonderful job. They do look like real marble. I love how beautiful your home looks.

  5. Each of these granite countertops exudes different aesthetic appeals, but if I have to choose, I’ll pick #4. I just love the design’s pattern. Anyway, what was your final decision regarding this?
