More homeowners are turning toward contemporary kitchens than ever before. And with these contemporary spaces comes a need for countertops that can help complete the space. Some homeowners choose to use manmade materials such as ceramic or quartz counters to complete their contemporary design, but many more still turn toward natural stones such as granite to get the look they want. There are several different granites that work particularly well in contemporary kitchens, any of which is sure to get the modern look you’re after.
For white contemporary kitchens, one of the most sought after stones right now is Bianco Romano. This very light-colored stone includes gray, cream, and burgundy veining and accents, but keeps the kitchen very light and bright in color and in feel.
For homeowners that want more of a contrast in their kitchens, Absolute Black granite makes an impressive choice. Absolute Black looks particularly good in contemporary kitchens when honed to give it a more made and subtle appearance. With no veining or additional colors to work in, Absolute Black granites is perfect for the very stark, clean contemporary space.
Many contemporary kitchens make great use of bold color to help them stand out. And while most people associate bolder colors with manmade products, there are a few granites that can truly stand out in a modern space as well, including Hidden Treasure, a black stone that has thick gold veins and lots of movement, Stone Wood, which is an incredible stone with a cream to tan background and lots of heavy black veins, Dynamic Blue, which is a bright blue stone with waves of lighter color moving through it, Seacoast Green, which is a bold green stone with yellow undertones and lots of movement and veining.
Also popular in modern spaces as stones that have a lot going on; these stones work best on island counters where they can become the focal point of the room. Rainforest Green and any color of Mariachi work well here.
It is possible to have a contemporary kitchen and the beauty of granite together; simply work with the room to find the right look for you.
