Help with color choice of granite countertop to go with green marble tile floors.

benitalharrisJanuary 21, 2013
We have dark green marble tile floors and white cabinets in our kitchen. We recently cracked the countertop and it needs replacing. We are thinking of purchasing granite for resell value and I can't figure out which color of granite would go with the green floors.

Try looking at white quartz products. Some look like marble or have a slight pattern to them. They are easy to maintain and are good for re-sale. I have replaced all my granite with different quartz products.

I suggest Caesarstone quartz countertops in Blizzard or Eggshell.

There is a very definite pattern to the granite on the floor. I would suggest not using a countertop that has a pattern that might compete with the pattern on the floor. If it were my kitchen I would go with a solid white Corian to match your cabinets. Check with a realtor and see how he/she thinks that would impact the sale of the house. You could tie in the floor color with a backsplash that has a narrow line or two of solid green.

A Black Granite that is more of a solid pattern w just some "Flecks" would wk. Dont do a Veiny pattern as it will compete

I agree with the "no pattern" advice. Simple white quartz or one of the quartz products that mimics marble should be calm enough.

benita, what color are your walls? I like the white quartz suggestions a lot, but may you want to consider painting your walls if they are also white.
