Interior Design Q&A: Granite Countertop Selection

Which granite countertop color goes best with your kitchen combo?

Which granite countertop color goes best with your kitchen combo?


I have black appliances and cherry cabinets and a light- to med-beige tile. I am going crazy trying to choose a granite color – can you please help?




You may want to consider a lighter granite top because of the dark cabinets and dark appliances. Something to compliment the flooring could tie the room together. Most granite retailers will allow you to take a sample home so you can compare it to your cabinets, tile, etc. One of the beautiful things about granite is its variation in color, but it can throw some consumers off when the actual slab of granite comes in. Make sure to approve the slab before installation in your home. For more information on granite retailers or granite options contact Tuckey Restoration at 717-249-7052 or
