Granite Colors Offer a Variety of Choice and Types of Granite Countertops Selections

Granite shops in Houston generally classify granite colors in three main categories: White Granites, Black Granites, Brown Granites. Within each of those color granite categories, you can select from various granite colors combinations and granite finishes. Like within the white granite countertops, you can get an underlay of black, maybe with a hint of blue (giving it the granite a pearl-like or marble-like appearance). Granite, white with a hint of blue, is great for spaces of calm and cool colors.

Black granite countertops are another popular choice in Houston kitchens. Black granite makes a great choice for a high contrast black and white kitchen. Many of the darker granite colors for countertops also contain small white, gold, red, and/or green flecks thrown in. Another striking kitchen granite colors combination for a countertop is the black and white granite countertop, complimenting most dark or light kitchen cabinets.
