Did you know that you can get so many colours of granite countertops? If you didn’t than you need to know the options available to you. When taking on a big renovation project, like the kitchen, it is important to get only the best materials, this includes your countertops. Make the right investment and look at the colours of granite countertops on offer until you find the right fit.

Everyone loves to spend time in the kitchen. Whether that be as a family or somewhere you go to relax and whip up a recipe or two. This is why it is a place where you can afford to go the extra mile with your décor. You also need to make a sound investment. If you have finally decided to get rid of the 70’s tiles and laminated countertops, you need to create a kitchen that not only looks good but is practical. This is why you need to choose materials that are able to stand the test of time. Which is why granite should be your first choice for your countertops. What most people are concerned with, when it comes to granite, is that it is almost impossible to be original. The last thing you want is to have a kitchen that is a mirror image of your neighbours, however, this will not necessarily be the case. There are a number of different colours of granite countertops to choose from, it just so happens that many people play it safe and stick to the speckled black granite countertops. You can be completely original with your choice of countertop and make your neighbours green with envy that they didn’t decide to be a bit more creative.

What colours can you choice from? Well it is less about the colours so much as it is about the design. There are three designs to choose from, solid, speckled and marbled. These designs will affect your colour choices. If you decide to go for a solid countertop, you will only have one main colour, which is normally white, black or beige. With the speckled and marbled choices, you will have a countertop that has one main colour as the base colour and then other colours will be running through it, either in a speckled or marbled effect. These two designs are normally the most popular because they provide you with more colour options. The most popular is definitely the black speckled with white and silver. All you need to do is take a look at your options and find the one that fits in with the rest of your décor plans for the kitchen.
