Help! Need granite suggestions for honey oak cabinets
I'm replacing the Formica countertops with granite in my townhome's kitchen. The kitchen has golden oak cabinets and medium brown hand-scraped hardwood floors (both are very grainy). The kitchen isn't very big and gets a medium amount of natural light. IÃ¢ÂÂm not sure if I should go with light or dark granite countertops, but I know I want the granite to stand out from the cabinetÃ¢ÂÂs color and not necessarily blend in together. With that said, I do also want the floors, cabinets and countertops to complement one another.
Just as a FYI:
- IÃ¢ÂÂm also getting all new appliances which will be complete stainless steel.
- I plan to have a backsplash put in once the countertops are done as well.
- Right now I'm leaning towards going with santa cecilia granite because it "matches", but it doesn't really wow me.
I have attached pictures of my cabinets and floor for reference. Any suggestions for granites would be greatly appreciated!
