Ganite Advice - which one or both?

Hi,

I'm now looking at Paricema White granite. The granite looks much greener in the photo (this seems to be a problem with my camera). The 1st photo is #1 - slab only.

Please comment!!

This granite #2 with the cabinet door. I'm considering granite #2 for the island (+/-9.9 ft X 4 ft) and granite # 1 for the counters. They areboth Paricema White. Thoughts?

I LOVE the granite. I can't see the color variation in the granite but my initial thought is that the granite doesn't go well with the door color.

Can you post a close up view of the cabinet door and the #2 granite?

I won't be able to get an up close photo until next week. A close up is a good idea - perhaps my camera will capture the true color of the granite. DH and a friend were both there while taking photos and we all agreed the color in the photos does NOT reflect the true color of the granite. It is almost a blue/gray in the darker areas.

I think the granite is beautiful and agree that slab #1 would be better for countertops and #2 for island. I think the color looks ok with the cabinet color but since that's not the true color I guess it's a moot point anyway! Good luck! : )

Hi Eustacem,

DH likes #2 best overall, however I think the lighter section in the lower right hand corner would not look good on the counters. Thank you for your comments.
Granite selection has been a bear!
