Granite countertops are available in a variety of styles and colors and are quite versatile when it comes to home decor, whether you want to shop for a countertop that matches your kitchen’s style or design your kitchen around your countertop. As always, decor is all about personal preference, and there are no right or wrong answers, but here are some ideas to get you going.
Earth Tones and Wood
When many people think of granite, they think of the modern decor that you tend to use with monochrome countertops. That’s always a great choice, but brown, tan and reddish granite can just as easily be paired up with more earthy, natural colors. Mahogany cabinets with tan and brown granite can be especially stunning.
Decor for Blue Granite
Blue granite can be very easy or very difficult to decorate with, depending on how hard you’re willing to work. It pairs well with white and black tones, but once you add more colors to the kitchen, it can be very easy to start clashing. Generally, you’ll get best results with lighter woods like bamboo, and of course, blue granite beautifully complements a sink made of stainless steel or white porcelain.
Keep Your Scheme Simple
When you have a granite countertop, you likely want it to be the centerpiece of your kitchen. You’re going to get the best results by keeping your color schemes relatively simple. It’s a bit like being a painter in a three-dimensional space: Using every color in the box is great for a children’s book, but you generally want to choose your color range and stick to it.
Again, decor is all about personal preference. The most important thing is that you like the way your home looks with granite countertops in Colorado Springs. Give us a call for a free in-home consultation and we’ll help you find a countertop that speaks to you.
