Need granite help for builer choices

miss_kendaMay 22, 2013

We are building a house and these are our granite choices

http://www.wisenbaker.com/ProductColorGallery.aspx?Product=TrustPoint% 20Granite

We are going with a warm white cabinet and med stain oak floor.
I was looking for a nice white granite but the only whites they have are
Gia Blanco $3900
Bianco Primata $1700
floratta white $3900 not shown

and we also like
operetta cream $3900 not shown

The others are brown or pink.

Any info on the colors or photos are appreciated.

We could also do quartz I only like are Catalina and Panna. Both about $500

Backsplash options?

WE are running out of time.
Thanks for taking the time to help.

gia blanco granite -unless you want the extra expenditure of quartz.Granite is usually quite economical and with a new home and lots of spendy things I think for what you are trying to achieve with your palette the gia blanco is quite nice.

I would be very concerned if I couldn't see the actual samples. From the pics, except for the gia blanco, it looks like there is some pink in each of them that would not go well with the oak floor IMO. Each slab can vary so much that you don't really know what you're getting. Of the granites shown, I like Istan Light the best...I think it would work well with both the cabinet and the flooring. Of the ones you like, I would go with gia blanco.

Given the durability and consistency of the quartz product, I would go with one of them instead as at least you know in advance what you are getting.

Of the granites they offer, I actually like the Biscotti best, but you can't go wrong with either the Catalina or Panna...one adds more color....

Think about looking at the counter top with your dishes on it...maybe a plate with a sunny side up egg...that may help you decide.
