Did you know that granite is often described as the chameleon stone? The appearance of your granite countertops can shift slightly to reflect any décor you add or replace in your kitchen. The counter will look different against a stark white backsplash than it will against a dark tile one for example.
Granite countertops come in an incredible variety of colors including, browns, tans, greens, blues, white, black, beige, red, gold and more. And, it is important to remember that granite in the showroom can look different than granite online or in your home.
