Do you have a choice of getting quartz instead of granite? I LOVE this color quartz with white cabinets. It looks like Carrera Marble but it’s much more durable and less expensive.

@MissSandyShore:  I would def suggest getting something neutral b/c if you decide to change your wall color that way the granite would sorta match anything




maybe a color like this? It would match with your dark floors and I think it is neutral enough that it would match with your walls as well. I wouldn’t try to match the granite directly up with the paint b/c you might change your mind about the paint in the future.

The lighter the granite, the more often it needs to be re-sealed. If upkeep is a factor in your decision, remember that. Probably any granite with brown details will work well with the floors and wall color you chose. We have granite in our condo/townhouse, and I really wish we had quartz! Less upkeep and much more modern looking.

I personally like darker countertops with white cabinets. The contrast makes it pop, and if you get a really light color your kitchen will be too white, almost sterile looking. That’s must my opinion, though, I know a lot of people like that look, so it’s not objectively bad, just not my taste

I personally love dark gray or very very deep green (that can look almost black from far away) granite. As PP have said…lighter granite is more upkeep and I also just love contrasts, so with white cabinets I’d want darker countertops personally

@MissSandyShore:  Do you have a short list?  I think black would look stunning with that combo.

I think a black granite would look great with your white cabinets and dark floors, but a gold/beige color would really compliment the turquoise hue of your walls.  There’s a cute granite called “black galaxy” that is basically black with an almost golden flecked iridescent effect that would probably look terrific.

Black for sure.  It will break up all the lightness.  We have maple cabinets and black tile floor with ubatuba granite – ubatuba’s a bit dated now, but black would be awesome.

Black is a pain in the rear to keep clean.  See if you can find antique brown granite in a leathered or honed finish.  It won’t show the water spots like a polished granite, and it’s not as harsh as black.  Plus it would look great with dark wood floors and turquoise walls, but is neutral enough that you could change your wallcolor in the future.

We have white cabinets with dark hardwood floors and went with “superwhite” granite. Its mostly gray and looks the closest to marble But is not as light. I so badly wanted marble countertops but they are just not practical as they etch easily bc marble is a porous stone. this pic is from google images i will take some good pics of our kitchen tomorrow in daylight and post if you are interested in seeing! I loove my kitchen!
