Matching granite to cabinet color help!

lumikukeJanuary 14, 2013
I have maple spice Shiloh cabinets, and am trying to pick granite. Please tell me which matches better, or both look the same. Saci granite is lighter on the left and tan brown is on the right. Pros and cons would be appreciated!

Hi Lumikuke,

I have a friend who installed the tan brown in their home and I absolutely love it. I think it would match your cabinet selection well. It's warm and inviting. Do you have an idea of paint color? His walls are a Mark Twain green, I forget the name off the top of my head.

Pros to granite are it's extremely hard, making it tough to scratch. It handles heat well too. Easy to clean if properly maintained as well.

Cons are mostly staining. It can stain if not properly sealed and treated- which can be every 6 months to a year.

If you happen to look for an alternative our counters are scratch, heat and stain resistant and come with a lifetime warranty. You can view our selection here- http://www.granitetransformations.com/southjersey/products/granite-countertops/colors/

Good luck with your decision!

The one on the right, definitely. The swirls in the dark marble echo the color of the cabinets. I don't think the one on the left really matches at all, sorry. On the other hand, I suppose you could paint the walls a color to MAKE it work, if you didn't want such a dark floor.

Love Shiloh cabinets. Hope you enjoy them. We have the tan brown in our office on some cabinetry almost the same color as yours (but painted instead of stained) and love it. It shows no dust and looks great all the time. I think you'll love it. The one on the left does nothing for the cabinets.

I am throwing in one more choice, antique brown. Please give me your opinions on all. Let me know if I need a better photo. Thanks!

Lumikuke, I prefer the darker granite with the color of your maple cabinets, but I am not a fan of the "spotty" appearance of sample #2. It's difficult to see the detail of the antique brown choice but I would look for something with a consistent coloration similar to the inspiration photo attached.

Definitely the "Tan Brown" granite! Looks amazing with your cabinet color!

What color are your floors? Could you show a picture of all the samples with your floor?

I think the antique brown is going to look "dead" with your cabinetry. We have attempted to use it and it just has no life to it.

I was leaning towards the one all the way on the right, but now that I see it with the flooring I think the middle one looks best. I would like the one on the right if it had less white in it.

The middle stone is better than the other two but I think you can do better. The brown in the stone is not complimenting your cabinet as much as it could. The color in the stone is "too brown".
