Granite countertops colors
Granite is as old as the earth. It is the second hardest stone (diamond being the first) and is formed from molten rock found worldwide.
Designers have used granite for countertops for decades. It adds color and warmth to a room. Granite has become the most popular countertop material today.
Minerals form the patterns in the stone that make a countertop a work of functional art. Its beauty cannot be duplicated.
There are literally hundreds of granite colors. Within the whites, browns, reds, greens, blues, golds and blacks are variations created by each stone's mineral contents. This creates an almost endless array of granite colors. And even within a particular stone, each slab has its own unique one-of-a-kind look created by nature.
The beauty of granite is that you can find a wide selection to complement any style of cabinet from rustic country to traditional to the more contemporary styles.
Some of the granite colors exhibit "movement" or designs within the natural color and others just have small patterns. The combination of color and movement means that no two countertops are alike. It is important to look at each slab and reserve the one you want for your home.
Price includes stone, design, template, fabrication and installation. Final custom granite countertop pricing is based on countertop configuration, stone usage and seams.
