Choosing the exact colour and type of granite worktops for your kitchen is an important decision for any homeowner, whether you are looking to give your existing kitchen a facelift or are planning a full-scale kitchen refurbishment. There are numerous granite worktop colour options. That is why, at Marble4Life, we are always available to provide expert advice on a variety of options and colours that may work with your specific kitchen designs and requirements.

It is truly amazing how different granite colours can have such a diverse impact on the look and feel of any kitchen space. Even minor changes in colour shades can have a significant impact.

Use a Colour Wheel

Take a look at a good colour wheel as one of the first steps in deciding on the colour of your granite worktops. This can be found on a variety of websites and can provide you with an initial idea of which colours work well together and which do not.


Bring Samples To A Kitchen Showroom

When shopping for your ideal granite worktop colour, bring any samples of your cabinets, kitchen designs, or colour schemes with you. This will allow you to compare the various colour options and shades of granite worktops. The colour of your cabinet should ideally contrast with the colour of your granite worktop, and any natural sparkles in the worktop should match the overall style of the kitchen. Take samples of your preferred wall paint and flooring to aid in your decision-making process.

Don’t Shop Online Only

When shopping online, exercise caution. Although you will be able to sort through a variety of different colour options and styles, judging the true colour of each option based solely on a picture can be difficult. Subtle veining patterns and other finer details of the stone are too difficult to photograph and should be left to the human eye. Don’t be afraid to drop by our Bradford showroom. We’d be delighted to walk you through the various granite worktop colour options and styles available at our Bradford showroom, and we can even provide you with free samples to take away and try in your own home. Furthermore, you can observe our skilled craftsmen prepare the granite in the workshop right from the showroom window.

Consider Your Kitchen’s Lighting

When deciding on the colour of your granite worktops, lighting is also an important factor to consider. A lot of light is ideal for bringing out the best features and true beauty of a coloured granite worktop. In well-lit kitchens, dark colours like black, blue, or mahogany can look exceptionally elegant and classy. If lighting is an issue in your kitchen, however, lighter colour options such as different shades of white granite, beige granite, or grey granite are preferable.

Timeless Vs Trending Worktops

If you want granite worktops that will last, perhaps a more timeless and classic approach to colour is best suited for your kitchen remodelling project. Neutral colours such as Absolute Black, Emerald Pearl, or Angola Black complement a wide range of kitchen spaces. Dark granite worktops have very close-knit grains and a consistent colour, making them a highly durable and strong material. However, if you want to keep up with the latest kitchen designs, choosing a worktop with a neutral base and introducing trendy colours and shading as easy-to-replace accents may be the best approach for your kitchen.

Look At Different Shades Of A Colour

When deciding on the best colour scheme for your granite worktops, keep in mind the various shades of each colour. Each stone slab has its own distinct beauty and style. As a result, it is critical to not only view the various options online, but also to visit our showroom and see the various colour shades for yourself. Make an effort to notice other colourful items in your kitchen. Darker colours, like black, can saturate larger areas, whereas lighter colours, like white or gold, can frequently open up a confined space. Any colour selections or worktop considerations should be made with the overarching plans for your kitchen designs and requirements in mind.
