Opinions on granites please
We are beginning demo of our kitchen tomorrow and are still undecided about our perimeter countertops. Our perimeter cabinets are beaded inset painted BM Chantilly Lace and our island will be alder stained a storm gray with a hint of green. We have a beautiful slab of Calacutta marble for the island and are wavering between two leathered granites for the perimeter countertops.
Choice 1 is a leathered forest black (not the actual slab but very close)
Choice 2 is leathered steel gray (once again, not actual slab, but very close)
Our slab of Calacutta looks very much like this:
We really like both. The steel gray is the safe choice, but the forest black is more dramatic. We are leaning toward the black forest but like the steel gray as well. We are planning on putting a white glass arabesque BS in, but that too may change.
