Help us choose a granite color for our small white kitchen!

January 19, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Here is a picture of our kitchen. We currently have white formica counter which we are looking to change to granite as the formica shows every speck of dirt and stains easily.

We are also installing new hardwoods. Here is a picture.

Which granite do you like best: Fantasy Brown (1st granite picture), Crema Valentina (2nd granite picture) or Typhoon Green (posted in first comment)

Are there any other colors that you would have us consider?
In each photo of granite, we included our floor and a swatch of our current paint color (which we like but are open to changing.)

Thanks!

I'm a fan of the Crema Valentina. To me the brown is too busy and the green you may get tired of. Keep it simple and use accessories for color.

I like the green. It doesn't look too green.

The first photo granite is beautiful. I love the movement and I'll bet u will too! I just put granite in too and I used a white, grey, beigey brown taupe. with small rubies and similiar design movement like yours. in our all white kitchen with cherry hardwood floors. If you are going to use slab material go with the best and the pattern says best! This color you choose can be accessorized with any color scheme you choose Beautiful choice!

The granites you have selected are nice, but since you have angles it would be difficult to match at seams. Talk to an installer before buying!

Your new hardwood has a lot of variation in it, so I would do the crema granite.

Always use an experienced company to cut and install your granite. The only seams will be at sink and stove. The angles can be cut out of the slab. If the installer wants more seams, hire someone else. that says they do not have a state of the art cutting machine and are likely cutting themselves on a simpler saw. After all you will likley be spending 5 to 8 thousand dollars, protect your purchase. Also make sure you are getting a pre sealed slab--otherwise the maintainence is a pain and you will soon tire of the exta work, espically if this is a well used kitchen.

I like the floor you have now! And my granite choice is the light one!

I concur with pcmom1--Crema Valentina would look best with your new floors. The granite is subtle, but it will be very pretty with your white cabinets.

I think I would go with the Crema Valentina. It's not as dramatic as the other - but the color is beautiful and you can use almost any color paint with it and I don't think it will conflict with your floors. Good Luck!
