Rock Tops Granite Tips: A Report on the Variety of Granite Colors


When you think about granite countertops for your kitchen, what comes to mind. Unfortunately many people have a very limited vision of granite as being a stone that is only in a few colors. In this report you will learn that granite, in fact, can come in a number of colors that can be used to accent any kitchen or bathroom remodeling project that you are planning for your home.


To understand the variety of granite colors that are available in the marketplace, you have to understand a little about where this stone comes from. Granite is a natural stone, formed from molten rock and the movements of the earth. Environmental factors at the time of its creation have some impact on the final color and design that is visible in the stone.


Another factor in granite colors is the location where it is formed. For example, the elements that combine to create Indian stone are going to be different than those in Italian stone or Brazilian stone. Just like the animals and plants in different parts of the world look different, so do the items that compose the earth in those areas. These differences in composition can impact the final color of the stone that is formed when the molten earth cools.


When it comes to granite countertops, there are a few granite colors that are more popular and some others that are definite statement-making pieces.


Popular Granite Colors


The most common granite shades are browns and beiges. One of the reasons for this is that these granite colors will blend perfectly with any wood counters that are being put under or over them in your kitchens or bathrooms.  Many people like to match the wood in their cabinets to one of the colors in the granite counter tops to make a smooth visual transition from piece to piece. Additionally, browns are warm colors and often add to an overall warm feel of the kitchen.


The next most popular granite colors are white and black. For those who are decorating a modern kitchen or bathroom, black and white are sharp colors that will add to the overall decorative style.


Statement Making Granite Colors


Growing in demand are some of the brighter colors of granite. One of the most popular colors right now is blue. These stone countertops almost seem unreal as it seems the blue of the granite can't be natural, but it is.


Red and green are also granite colors, although those are not as popular in decorating trends.

Oh my goodness!  That is one of the longest blogs I have ever seen!  But my comment is more about the maintenance of granite.  Once in, it need to be treated every now and then.  And, many people moving into a home with granite will not like the previous owners color.  If you are installing it for resale, make sure your choose wisely.

Wow, this quite comprehensive and worth at least 10 separate posts!  Anyway, I recently went to a large granite wholesaler and was once again amazed at the variety that nature produces!  And we are "only" talking rock!

Yikes.  I'm sure there is some fantastic information here but I didn't get past the first paragraph.  Hopefully you will take this as a positive suggestion to turn this on to a series on granite advantages, disadvantages etc.
