Why Your Kitchen Island Granite Doesn’t Have to Match the Counters

If you have beautiful granite countertops in Colorado Springs in a discontinued color or style, what happens when you decide to add an island with a granite top? As long as you’re happy with your countertops, there’s no need to resurface your entire kitchen, mixing and matching granite can produce a lovely custom effect. 

On-Trend Color Combinations

Glitz and glam are back in home decor, and you can combine white, gray and gold granite colors with most existing granite counters. For example, if your current granite counters are rich, dark colors, consider off-white and light beige granite with plenty of detail in the composition for your planned island surface.

On the other hand, if your counters are white or very light, a smooth black slab can create a huge wow factor when guests come over. For custom colors such as pinks, roses and grays, find a complementary color that brings out the highlights in your current style. If you want high drama and a royal touch, add a gold-toned granite counter to your eat-in island. 

Redefine Your Transitional Space

If you want the island to command its own space and can place it between an open kitchen-dining area, you can use any color you want. You’re essentially creating a wall-less room where kids gather to do their homework, dinner is served and friends gather around for a nightcap.

Granite comes in styles referred to as colorways (ranges of color), so it’s easy to find the exact combination you envision. Be sure to approve the final slab in person before it’s custom cut for your island. This is a lasting investment, and you’ll be happy you made the time to do so later.

It’s White, Beige and Blue For This Year’s Best Dressed Countertops

Written by Planet Granite, Inc. on . Posted in Granite

Homeowners have been aware of the many benefits of granite countertops for a number of years. Next to sapphires, rubies, and diamonds, granite is the hardest substance on the planet, making it an ideal food preparation surface for a variety of reasons. As a nonporous material, granite doesn’t harbor bacteria or viruses, making it one of the cleanest countertop options for both kitchens and bathrooms. Granite countertops also come in a large variety of colors to complement and contrast with any home decorating palette. Following are some of the most popular colors of granite countertops in Colorado Springs this year.

Light, Bright White and Silvers

One of this year’s biggest trends in countertop colors is bright hues such as white and silvers. White and silver granite comes flecked in a variety of colors, including rose, blue, green, gray and black and works extremely well with current trends toward incorporating optimal amounts of natural light into interior living spaces. White and silver countertops offer optimal shimmer and shine, and are ideal for those with small kitchens who want to make them appear larger.

Beige 

Many modern homeowners are gravitating toward beige granite countertops this year because they provide the bright look of white and silver countertops along with a warm, rustic glow. Beige also provide increased decorating options because it pairs with a huge variety of interior color schemes. White is pristine and lovely, but some homeowners prefer to use various shades of beige in order to have more decor color options and to create a warmer ambiance. Like white granite, beige granite is available with multicolored fleck in the surface of the materials.

Blues

Shades of blue are also popular for countertops this year –everything from sky blue through navy. Lighter blues provide an airy, casual look, while dark blues offer a solid, luxurious appeal.
