The kitchen is a such a personal room in your home; it’s where you chat with your friends, where people gather to prepare dinner, at parties, or just to spend time together  Your countertop is on view for all your guests to see.  With that in mind, are you thinking about redoing your kitchen countertops?  These five granite color choices are among the most popular.

#5 Luna Pearl

The pearlescent accents in the Luna Pearl slab add a luxurious look to a classic slab color combo. While the pattern is slightly bolder than marble, this slab is a nice option for homeowners who considered marble but worry about softness; Luna Pearl’s shimmery, opalescent flecks provide that softer, luminescent look marble is known for – combined with durability of granite.

#4 Bianco Antico Granite

Bianco Antico Granite countertops feature a soft gray background with warm taupe and pink flecks. In addition to countertops, this beautiful granite can be used for coordinating backsplashes, accent walls, and floors. Granite is recommended for both residential and commercial projects, and can be used in exterior projects for wall cladding, landscaping, and countertops.

#3 Gray Star

#2 Blanco Leblon

Talk about versatile – Blanco Leblon slabs have a well-balanced black-white-gray composition. The effect is one that works with any kitchen hues – from dark to light – so it is no wonder that it’s trending right now.

#1 Santa Cecilia

Santa Cecilia granite is a stunning creamy white stone loved for its depth and beauty. It is quarried in Brazil and is occasionally called Giallo Cecilia granite.  From a distance, Santa Cecilia looks reasonably uniform in its creamy color, no large mineral deposits will usually visible.
