How to Choose the Right Color of Denver Granite


December 20, 2017

There are many reasons to love Denver granite countertops. Not only is granite durable and resistant to heat, it also comes in a wide variety of colors, which makes it easier to find a color that complements the rest of your home. But with so many beautiful colors, many homeowners find it difficult to choose just one. If you’re in this situation, follow these tips to choose the right color of granite for your home:

Take Samples Home

The lighting inside the showroom may not be the same as the lighting that you have at home. Since lighting can affect the way the color looks, it’s best to bring samples of granite home before making a final decision. Lay a plain white sheet over the existing countertops in your kitchen and then place the samples on top of the sheet. Now, you will be able to get a better idea of what the granite will look like once it’s installed in your home.

Remember, the natural light streaming into your kitchen could affect the way that the color looks. For this reason, it’s recommended that you look at the samples multiple times throughout the day to make sure that you are happy with the color. It’s best to look at them in the morning, mid-afternoon, and evening.

If the showroom does not have samples, then bring elements from your kitchen into the showroom instead. Unscrew a cabinet door and knob so you can carry them with you to the showroom. You can also take photos of the flooring, furniture, and any other design elements that you plan on keeping in your kitchen.

Paint & Accessories

It’s possible that you will fall head over heels for a color that clashes with the paint and accessories in your kitchen. You may feel as if it’s best to forget about this granite color and choose something that will complement the rest of your kitchen. But, it’s important to remember that repainting and buying new kitchen accessories is not difficult. A granite color should not be cast aside simply because it doesn’t match as long as you are willing to make an effort to update the paint and accessories.

Choose Two Colors

If you can’t choose one color, then why not choose two instead? Many homeowners incorporate two different colors of granite into their kitchens by using one on the island and the other for the rest of the countertops. As long as the colors complement each other, this is a great way to make your kitchen stand out. Learn more about granite countertop colors.
