The Colors of Granite?

A hot favorite among home owners, granite is a sturdy member of the stone family that provides both beauty and strength to the structure. And what’s more, it can go with any color of cabinetry that you may have in your kitchen or bathroom. You can take help from a decorator or you can use your own aesthetic sense to see what color granites would go the most with your décor.

How do Granites get These Colors and Paterns?

An extremely natural process, granites are formed through metamorphosis of mountain rocks. Granites can be predominantly white, pink, or gray in color, depending on their mineralogy. A single slab of granite stone gets most of its color from one particular mineral, which is present abundantly in that slab. Take for example the Red granite. This Red color is due to low presence of hematite. So, Red color of granite is a result of difficult and not always ordinary processes. The presence of all these minerals in the stone decides what patterns would appear once it is polished. It’s a wonder everytime to see a pattern emerge from.

How to Pick the Right Granite Color?

This dilemma is faced by perhaps everyone who wants to adorn their houses with this beautiful stone. When trying to choose a color, keep in mind that granite comes in various mottled shades that could either work well with your cabinetry or be a total design flop. To avoid an expensive decorating mishap, you’ll want to coordinate not only the two materials but all aspects and features within your kitchen. Because there are endless combinations — for example, wall color, flooring, window treatments and cabinet colors — to synchronize, take a little extra time and explore all your granite options. In the end, the steps involved coordinating a countertop with your cabinetry and the kitchen’s other existing features will result in a choice that’s a smart-looking investment rather than a costly disaster.
