Light or Dark colored granite... Please Help!

Posted by schurgy (My Page) on

I've spent hours searching through forums and websites and am now hoping someone here can give advice on pros/cons of dark versus light colored granite countertops for the kitchen.

This is a new home... so right now anything goes! The style is craftsman... and All I know for sure is that we want Rustic Alder Cabinets and will have all stainless appliances. We will also have hard wood floors... color to be determined. Lighting should not be an issue.

I'm looking at New Venetian Gold, Colonial Dream, and Peacock Green.

I want something that will look good... match the style... but more importantly... EASY TO CARE FOR! I'm concerned that if we choose a darker color it will require frequent dusting... but maybe this is not the case?

Thanks in advance for any advice.. and even pictures if you have any of the above listed colors!!!

RE: Light or Dark colored granite... Please Help!

If you haven't already done so, I suggest you post this on the "Discussions" side of the Kitchens Forum. This is the "Gallery" where people usually post threads for the Finished Kitchen Blog or similar, usually not for discussions.

The Discussions side is also much busier!

I also suggest you check out the "Read Me" thread for newcomers to Kitchens (or old-timers that need more information on something!)

Here is a link that might be useful: Read Me If You're New To GW Kitchens!
