Most Popular Granite Colors
Surely you’ve heard plenty of good things about granite. The natural stone is strong, durable, unique and beautiful. Its popularity speaks for itself. If you’re sold on granite, but don’t know what design is best or what the most popular granite colors are, we recommend you read on for granite guidance.
The most popular granite colors are white, black and gray and beige/brown. It seems odd to designate one color to granite because the various grains and veins throughout can be any blend of neutral color. That said, every granite slab has a base color, and that’s typically white, black, or gray.
There are of course different versions of each color.
For white, you can choose:
White Ice: A very pure granite with various grains of black and gray throughout. Sort of “cookies and cream”-ish, if you appreciate a good food analogy.
River White: Less grain, more base color. This granite type is vastly white, but with occasional streaks of black/gray within. The color variation is not as profound.
Himalayan White: Perhaps more gray than white. Your kitchen or bathroom will benefit from a very modern look. Perfect for the trending contemporary kitchens.
For black granite:
Black Pearl: Bold choice for a kitchen countertop. A solid black slab that contrasts wonderfully with surrounding white cabinets and stainless steel appliances. Your kitchen will give off confidence.
Black Galaxy: Black is the base color and white spots are scattered throughout. The “galaxy” name is motivated by the look of stars in the night sky. This granite color combo will look great in any kitchen.
Ubatuba: Get yourself a very earthy countertop that is a mix of black and gold. Again, black is the primary color; however, gold fades and smears give this version a ton of character. It is the ideal install for warm surroundings, such as wood floors and brown cabinets.
For gray granite:
Gray Star: A blend of light gray, dark gray, black and white. Perfect for an all white kitchen, black and white kitchen or gray and white kitchen. The countertop will be the main attraction of your kitchen!
Valle Nevado: Similar to gray star, only this version presents a darker gray. It’s really up to personal preference as to which gray granite is best for your home. The good news is that there isn’t really a bad option.
For brown granite:
Butterfly Beige: Speaking of warm surroundings, there’s not better fit than beige granite. Butterfly beige is a blend of black, white, beige and brown. The random spread of each color makes for an entrancing countertop.
Santa Cecilia: Similar to butterfly, only white is less visible. Black streaks among brown/beige hues give this granite type a certain texture that is difficult to match. It will go wonderfully in a warm kitchen with a yellow pendant light.
White, black, gray and beige granite are common because they’re luxurious and easy to match with. There are, however, other colors to choose from. Keep in mind, granite is a natural stone; therefore, it is supplied as the earth allows it to be. The granite we’ve covered to this point are in greater supply.
Colors such as green, blue and red granite do exist, they are just tougher to come by and not as conservative. Each can look incredible if used in the right environment. You’ll be going against what is common, but that can play in your favor. Granite is already unique, but a green or blue granite would double-down your kitchen’s uniqueness.
If you are interested in a non-traditional granite countertop color, be sure to gather samples and discuss the look with a professional designer. Also, make sure the manufacturer has it in stock.
You want to be 100% sold on your granite before having it installed. That means having the entire space, kitchen or bathroom, laid out ahead of time. Granite will last for a long time, and the cost is certainly enough to prompt long thought. There’s no changing your mind on the type or color once it’s installed.
