Kitchen DIY projects can go awry if you do not know which color granite slab will best match the existing style or appeal of your kitchen. Granite countertops are certainly one of the preferred looks for modern homes. This type of kitchen countertop stands the test of time and if you are considering it for your kitchen, it is important that you choose the right color.
It goes without saying that installing a granite slab in your kitchen will immediately add value and aesthetic appeal to your home. The pattern and color of your granite countertops can pull together all the components of your kitchen’s style and design. By choosing classic designs and colors, you will be able to sell your home more easily, when or if the time comes. While you can work closely with your granite fabricator to find the right color, style and pattern for your kitchen, below are a few tips for selecting the ideal color:
- Take color samples of your kitchen cabinets, wall paint and flooring along when shopping for the right granite slab.
- If you are installing dark colored cabinetry, try to avoid black or dark colored granite as this will look overpowering. With dark cabinets, look for a lighter color, such as beige granite that features brown, green and yellow speckles.
- Visit showrooms in person. It can be difficult to truly capture the fine color patterns of granite in photographs, so while catalogues and online shopping are helpful, you will be able to make a better decision by visiting showrooms.
- Keep your kitchen lighting in mind. Kitchens which receive little or no natural light can benefit from granite slab with predominantly white and gold speckles. Dark granite colors such as black, deep blue and mahogany will look better in areas that receive a lot of light.
