The total counter space is less than 50 square feet and there will be a butcher block across the radiator. I am having trouble deciding on granite. I want something a little bold, Typhoon Bordeaux (below) and my husband is worried that it will overwhelm. We are keeping the same style cabinets, putting a dishwasher in to the left of the radiator. This is a minor remodel but a big deal for me. Any ideas? Thank you.
