I posted before, but the photos weren't the greatest. I'm hoping these are better. I didn't know how to add to the existing post. Thank you for any help/suggestions!!!

Cabinets are antique white with chocolate glaze. Island cabinets are Sundance also with chocolate glaze. Appliances are stainless. Flooring is Tuscany Gold tile. Thanks for ANY help/ideas :-)

Here are some of my suggestions for clients when selecting granite & back splash. If you work on your counter top a lot (baking, cooking, etc) choose a granite that is easy on your eye, in a soft color and tighter grain (not too busy) You can add more boldness to the back splash because is it vertical. I also often suggest the Island in one granite and the counters along the wall of cabinets in another if that works. The two you have in above photo are both good standard granite. Just think about how you work in the space and that should help you decide.

The color you have there will work fine, it will give you a conservative look.

With your light floor I would go for a darker top like Pegasus. http://www.custommarblegranite.com/Pegasus.html
The 8th picture down shows a kitchen with similar cabinets.

If you like a lighter color I would consider Villa Roma http://www.custommarblegranite.com/VillaRomaInstalled.html

The triangular one seems to bring the gold flooring and chocolate glazing together.

Your photos are confusing! In the first posting the square shaped granite appeared to have some of the flooring warm tones in it and now it looks whiter and colder. The triangular piece now appears to have the gold tones! So, I say go with the warmer of the two. Go with the piece that in *your* own home lighting seems to pull it all together.

I think either of your granite selections would work, but I prefer the more triangular piece as it has some veining that will pick up the tone of the island cabinet.

Suzy, your kitchen already looks beautiful. I also like the last piece of granite. It's warmer, pulls in the floor, and, the other looks a bit washed out against the stain color. (Deborah, as usual, I concur with you and learn from you. Thanks for all your input! Grace)
