Most Popular Granite Countertop Colors in Minnesota

| | Granite

The great thing about putting granite countertops in your Minnesota home is that you have a wide range of colors from which to choose. If you can imagine it, there’s probably a granite slab in that color. Still, it can be difficult to pick out the perfect palette to complete your dream kitchen or bathroom. After all, you don’t want to pick out a color that won’t go well with the cabinetry or design, and will enhance the room.

There are some colors that are more popular than others. Here are the most chosen colors we see here at Northstar Granite Tops:


White brightens and enlarges any area it’s installed in. It’s also easy to keep clean, as the color will bring attention to spills and drips, alerting you to the need for quick removal. White granite countertops also go well with cabinets that are of a lighter palette, which is a must have modern décor. White’s always in style: it’s clean, simple and refined.


Part of the reason for gold’s increased popularity in the first half of any year is the prevalence of gold during the holiday season, and that carrying over to designs. Gold offers a neutral palette without causing any style to be sacrificed. You’ll find it won’t clash or be in competition with light or dark cabinetry, and instead bring your space with elegant warmth.


Since lighter-colored woods are highly sought after in contemporary designs, gray countertops are also hugely popular as they look fantastic with lighter colors. Gray granite counters offer similar benefits to white and gold, but also add contrast, which adds interest without overpowering the design. Gray is neutral and highlights other colors, making it a perfect partner in any design.
