Pure white granite countertops are hard to come by. The typical white variety of granite countertop is generally available with gray, black, and even red or blue flecks of stone throughout its surface. White countertops are striking when paired with cherry wood cabinets or used in a small kitchen space to create a more open environment.

Black and gray granite countertops give off a very dramatic appearance and are often best suited for contemporary kitchens that boast light wood or white cabinetry. But while dark granite countertops can only be used in a limited variety of kitchens, brown or beige granite can be featured in a number of kitchen styles.

Red and blue granite countertops are less common in kitchen designs, but they make an exotic and eye-catching statement. Pair these options with light colored cabinets and a muted paint palette for the walls, creating a stunning kitchen design scheme.
