Help needed for selecting darker granite countertop to match cabinets

violetrkDecember 8, 2012
Need help designing my kitchen - I have selected andover maple nutmeg cabinets and tropical brown for the granite. I am not sure if these two go together. But I want a darker granite as I cook daily and want a granite that can handle all the messes and does not know stains. Can I get a few suggestions? I can't go for an upgrade in the cabinets. So my cabinet choice is done - but have a choice for granite.

Hi---if you like dark then go for it! I think something with a bit of movement would be stunning and enhance the cabinetry. Pics for counter inspiration as well as floor... Good Luck!

Hi---yes you could go with the granite you posted as long as you incorporate that color, the butterscotch, and some of the cab hue in your backsplash. Pics for inspiration. Good Luck!
