Give your kitchen a contemporary makeover by installing granite countertops in a polished finish. The smooth and shiny surface enhances the look of the stone with its mirror-like finish. River white and Kashmir white granite will brighten any dull kitchen and allow the space to appear more open. Opting for a more subtle hue of granite will coordinate nicely with your cabinetry. Cabinets painted in a wash of gray with gold-tone finishes bring out the natural notes of gray in the granite.
Who hasn’t dreamt of a big, beautiful island in the kitchen? A kitchen island with a granite overlay is not only modern but functional. If you’re a baker, the smooth surface of granite allows you to roll out the perfect pie crusts. Entertainers love the ambiance a large granite countertop creates in the room. The cascading effect of a waterfall edge (also known as risers) adds a sophisticated style to an everyday look.
Choices of Granite Colors
Do you love the look of white, but desire something a bit bolder? Granite also comes in a variety of brown and black colors for those who want to take a trip to the dark side. Coffee brown and brown pearl pair wonderfully with natural wood cabinets. The combination of black, white and brown in brown pearl gives the granite a mosaic appearance while coffee brown appears as a solid color from afar.
Along with a variety of colors, granite is also available in an assortment of finishes. A finish is the application technique used to enhance the stone’s appearance. Popular finishing choices include: polished, honed and leather. Each one has its own distinct look as well as specific ways to maintain its appearance in order to prolong the material’s lifespan.
