Decision Time - Emerald Pearl or UbaTuba granite countertop
This has been very difficult and I did not realize that I have to spend lots of time trying to decide what countertop I want. My initial choice was a lighter color granite for my kitchen countertop (ie. giallo veneziano, santa cecilia, etc). Hubby and I have different opinions, he prefers dark-colored granite. I shifted from light to darker tones because I have a honey oak cabinet, picture attached, and flooring is maple. I thought it would be a nice contrast if we go dark. He convinced me that it would look more modern if we go with darker colors. Agree? Now we're down to two types of granite, Emerald Pearl (his choice) vs UbaTuba. I like Emerald Pearl because of the blings but I think i see more black than green which makes it a darker color. The Ubatuba has a variety of colors black, brown, dark green (correct me if i'm wrong). What should I choose? I want a striking look but pleasing to the eye and would not make the room smaller. Please help ASAP. The template guy will call me soon to measure because I already made the purchase.
PLEASE PROVIDE ME YOUR INPUT!!! THANKS!!!
