Choosing granite and backsplash with Honey oak cabinets

Posted by luvpatch (My Page) on

Hi! I am going to replace my kitchen counters with granite and would love some suggestions in coordinating colors and also doing a backsplash to go with it. I have honey oak kraftmaid cabinets. My walls are a buttery yellow. Currently the floor is a whitish ceramic with shades of white and a little blue/gray. I will probably replace the floors later in the year. The kitchen has a country french with some tuscany look pieces. I have a large picture on the wall that is a "french" look cafe and two canvas pics with bottles of wine. I have a great garden window behind the sink. I have trouble with coordinating colors and would love some suggestions! Thanks so much for any help you can give!

Can you post a pic?

We have light oak cabinets in shaker style with brushed nickel hardware. We chose uba tuba granite counters which look black from a distance and up close you see flecks of gold, aqua, light grey. The color contrast looks very nice. This look could fit a variety of kitchen styles. No regrets with choosing either light oak cabinets or this granite.

I don't have a photo, but my neighbor recently put granite in her kitchen with oak cabinets. She chose tan brown granite and did a travertine subway backsplash. I don't remember what color her walls are but she does have oak hardwood floors. She chose wroght iron knobs and pulls and stainless appliances. It looks very nice.
