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.
