Congratulations on the decision to get granite countertops! You are going to LOVE them — but wait, you don’t know what granite color you want yet? That’s not unusual. There are so many granite countertop colors to choose from — litterally hundreds of thousands.
Here are the top 3 ways to pick the right granite countertops color for your kitchen:
Sometimes price can easily be a determining factor for what granite color you select. Example: I bet you love that Cinderella Blue granite — but I also bet you will not like the price. Just because the granite is expensive, does not mean you shouldn’t get it, but if budget only allows for a price range of $30 – $40 sq ft then you need to keep your eyes on the Level I – Level II granite countertops colors. (Don’t worry, there are still MANY options to choose from within these two levels that you will also fall in love with.)
Look around your home now. What is the current color theme of the kitchen or adjoining rooms? Just because your eye loves the green in the Verde Butterfly doesn’t mean that green will match your current light blue country decor. Think about the overall look your kitchen will take on when the granite is installed. Take samples home of the granite colors you are interested in and match it to your wallpaper, wall paint, floors and cabinets. You can also bring in a cabinet door when you look at the granite slabs to see how the colors match up.
A great way to determine if the granite colors you are interested in will fit your home is to ask your friends, our design specialists and your family. You can even visit an online forum like the kitchen and bath forum on gardenwebs.com for the advice of homeowners all over the world. Get quality opinions so you can be sure you are not just choosing a color you love, but a granite color that will improve the look of your home. Sometimes you do have to take resell value into consideration when buying granite countertops. Do not pick something so unique that it may only fit your tastes, but think of a potential buyer.
Choosing to have granite countertops installed is a great choice that will improve the look of your home as well as increase the overall value of your home. The hardest part about getting granite is to choose the granite color! Use these three tips above to help make your choice and you will have a beautiful kitchen in no time!
