Most Popular Granite Colors

You’ve heard a lot 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 which design is best or what the most popular granite colors are, we suggest you read on for advice on granite.

The most common granite colors are white, black and gray and beige/brown. It seems odd to designate a single color to granite because the various grains and veins throughout can be any blend of neutral color. That being said, every granite slab has a base color, and it’s usually either white, black, or gray.

There are different versions of each color, of course.

For white, you can choose:yellow kitchen

White Ice: A very pure granite with various veins of black and gray throughout the slab. Sort of “cookies and creamish”, if you appreciate a good food analogy.

River White: Less grain, more base color. This granite type is mainly white, but with occasional streaks of black/gray. The color variation is not as profound as with other types.

Himalayan White: This granite type is more gray than white. Your kitchen or bathroom will end up with a very modern look. Perfect for a trendy, contemporary kitchen.

For black granite:

Black Pearl: A bold choice for a kitchen countertop. A solid black slab that contrasts wonderfully with surrounding white cabinets and stainless steel appliances. Your kitchen will have an air of confidence.

Black Galaxy: Black is the base color and white flecks are scattered throughout. The “galaxy” name is taken from the look of stars in the night sky. This granite color combination will look amazing in any kitchen.

Ubatuba: Get yourself an earthy countertop that’s a combination of black and gold. Again, black is the main color, but gold fades and smears give it a ton of character. It is the ideal type for warm surroundings, like wood flooring and brown cabinetry.

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 top attraction!

Valle Nevado: Similar to gray star, but this version features a darker gray. It’s really up to personal preference as to which gray granite is best for your Dallas home. The good news is that there isn’t really a bad option.

For brown granite:

Butterfly Beige: Speaking of warm surroundings, there’s nothing that fits in better than beige granite. Butterfly beige is a blend of black, white, beige and brown. The random spread of each color makes for an exciting countertop.

Santa Cecilia: Similar to butterfly, but the white is less visible. Black streaks among brown/beige hues give this granite type a specific texture that’s hard to beat. It’d go wonderfully in a kitchen with warm tones and a yellow pendant light above.

Off colors

White, black, gray and beige granites are common because they’re luxurious and easy to match the rest of your kitchen with. However, there are other colors to choose from. Keep in mind that granite is a natural stone; therefore, it is supplied as the earth allows it to occur. The granites we’ve covered to this point are in greater supply.

Colors like green, blue and red granite do exist, they’re just tougher to come by and aren’t as conservative. Each can look amazing if used with the right surroundings. You’ll be going against the norm, but that can play in your favor when done right. Granite is already unique, but a green or blue granite would double-down your kitchen’s uniqueness.

If you’re looking for a non-traditional granite countertop color, make sure to gather samples and discuss your desired look with a professional interior designer. Also make sure the manufacturer has it in stock.

You want to be 100% sold on your granite before getting 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 of it is certainly enough to prompt long and hard thought. There’s no changing your mind on the color once it’s installed.
