Written by Planet Granite, Inc. on . Posted in Counter Tops

Planet Granite KitchenGranite has been a hot trend in home and business decor for years and for good reasons: it’s a stylish, durable and versatile material. Granite countertops are heat- and scratch-resistant and the fine, non-porous grain makes them stain-resistant as well. They are ideal throughout the house, from the kitchen to bathroom and beyond. If you keep a home or business in the Colorado Springs area, Planet Granite can connect you with the finest granite countertops.

How to Mix and Match Granite to Get the Look You Want

For a modern, contemporary style, consider colors like black or deep grey. Add brighter contrast with pale, creamy tones. This can look great when paired with dark wood accents throughout the space. For a warmer, relaxed appearance, choose neutral browns and mid-tone grey shades with subtle patterns. To make your counter the focal point of the room, look for spectacular green and gold granites.

Granite CountertopKitchen decorating trends change annually and sometimes in the middle of the year, but there’s one thing that hasn’t changed in centuries, and that’s the timeless beauty of granite. It’s always in style.

It’s an easy choice, but what confounds many people shopping for Colorado Springs kitchen countertops is what color to choose. That’s because they instinctively understand that there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to colors in the kitchen. Here’s a look at the most popular colors and their benefits.

Best Colors For Granite Kitchen Countertops

  • White. A lot of people shy away from white because they feel it’s too plain and sanitized, like a hospital operating room. But granite is never plain, there are always veins and flecks of darker colors within, and there are several shades of whiteness. White also makes your kitchen space look larger.
  • Brown. A great choice for those wishing to create a warm, homey and rustic type of feel. It also works well with many different cabinet tones, especially lighter shades.
  • Beige. This is probably the most versatile color because it works with well many different decor options. Like brown, it’s a great for conveying a rustic atmosphere, and it matches up well with wood cabinets and decorations.
  • Black. If you definitely want granite countertops but also would like a solid color, black is the way to go. No need to have a dark decor with this color, instead let it stand out as the centerpiece of your kitchen.
  • Jewel-tone. For something bit different and exotic, try this interesting type of granite. It’s striking and eye-catching in its appearance, but it requires a bit more nuance when decorating.

Remember, the color of your granite countertops can change the atmosphere, the emotional impact and even the practical utility of your kitchen.

Choose A Color Palette Before Your Countertops

Renovating the kitchen is a smart move whether you own a house, condo or townhome. It can create a dramatic first impression, and inspire people to better their eating habits by making homemade meals in the kitchen. But before you get the cooking space of your dreams, you’ll need to pick a color scheme for the counters, walls, cabinets and floors. It all needs to flow for the best possible effect. Learn more about the major factors to keep in mind before you start looking at samples.

Forever Beautiful

What’s trendy right now could lose you thousands of dollars in the long run. For example, in the 1970s wood paneling was all the rage, but that fad died out pretty quickly. You’re looking for something that will last years, and often that means choosing some of the pricier options like granite or quartz. Both of these materials have withstood the test of time, so let them enhance the overall value of your home. This is the time to remember that you’re making an investment, and a neutral color scheme will make it easy for both you and the next buyer to spruce it up and personalize it with their own accessories.

Earthy Colors

Beige and gray are both excellent colors for countertops, but you can also consider a red or a blue as well. No matter what you do, it just needs to fit into your overall vision for the kitchen. It’s important to think in the long term, you’ll want to think about how you’ll feel about it after several years. An understated, a beautiful granite countertop might just be the perfect place to enjoy your daily morning cup of coffee.

When you need a little guidance about the best color scheme for your decorating tastes, contact your local Colorado Springs granite countertop designers. They can give you insight, materials and more.
