Granite is one of the most practical and popular materials for kitchen work surfaces. It is gorgeously stylish, durable and easy to clean. Here at Priory Kitchen Studio, we offer granite work surfaces in a huge variety of styles and hues, ranging from ‘Baltic Green’ to ‘Blue Pearl’. But which colour of granite should you choose for your new kitchen? With such an enormous range available, it can be hard to make a decision. Luckily, the overall style of your new kitchen can act as a guide to the type of hue you should consider.

Are you are having an ultra-modern kitchen installed with a design that emphasises purity and cleanliness? If so, you should opt for either a black granite surface or a white granite surface. Black surfaces tend to look slightly more sophisticated. They also hide crumbs and spillages very effectively. Meanwhile, white surfaces look purer and more minimalist and can help make your kitchen look lighter and more spacious.

If you want a more old-fashioned, traditional kitchen, you should choose a granite surface with an earthy, naturalistic colour. Dark Brown or green granite surfaces can evoke a sense of timeless refinement and enhance your kitchen’s traditional aesthetic. It’s also worth noting that some of our granite styles (such as ‘Dakota Mahogany’ and ‘Café Imperial’) use a mixture of old-fashioned hues and patterns to create a similar effect.

Finally, if your new kitchen will have a quirky, contemporary style, you should opt for a brightly-coloured type of granite. Bright blues, yellows and light greens can emphasise your kitchen’s fun and idiosyncratic design.

We can supply whatever colour of granite you feel will work well with your new kitchen. Why not get in touch with us today to find out more about our extensive range? We’re always happy to discuss your options with you and offer you any advice you may need.
