Show me your Granite... with Cherry Cabinets and Cherry Floors!

I just cannot seem to decide on the right granite for the kitchen. Can't decide to go with a darker granite or a lighter granite. I'm sure they'd both look great as I have yet to see something that does NOT look nice with medium-toned cherry cabinets. :)

Our cabinets are Medallion Brookhill Cherry with the Harvest Bronze (highlighted) finish. Floors will either be Brazilian Cherry or Ironwood (both are a deep reddish-brown).

Here is our kitchen. The granite is a dark gray that reads like black so it's called Impala Black. The floor is Chilean Cherry.

MaryElizabeth...I got the Olde Thompson spice rack fall of 2007 at Costco for $25 but on the Olde Thompson site they are selling for $50, marked down from $66. Guess I got a good deal. The last time I was in a So. Calif. Costco they were still selling them.

Hi there! My cabinets are Cherry with an Amber stain. We have Bianco Antico for our granite. I think the contrast of dark cabinets and floors go well with the lighter granite that has dark streaks running through it. I'm not sure about posting pictures, but I'll give it a try.

Hope this helps.

We have cherry cabinets and a brazilian cherry floor. We chose our counters for contrast, so we picked Andromeda White granite.
