When you combine neutral shades of black, gray, cream, and gold in high-contrast, high-variation granite countertops, the result is anything but bland and subtle. Titanium Granite definitely steals the show as the room’s focal point, but matches well with many other elements such as stainless steel appliances, pale cabinetry, and it even holds its own against a textured tile backsplash. Mixing patterns was never so much fun. 

Blue Flower

The kitchen counter, particularly when it covers a large, central island, is an important bit of real estate. Don’t waste that opportunity for greatness  seize it, with boldly patterned granite colors such as Blue Flower Granite. Blue is an uncommon hue in the world of natural stone, even in a pleasant, swirling blue-gray blend. Despite the exotic pattern here, it’s OK to pair it with other patterned elements such as a tile mosaic.

Black Forest

When you love the idea of a dramatic countertop pattern but aren’t ready to put it front and center, you can still use it to make the most of a narrow side countertop. Black Forest Granite combines jet black granite with swirls of gray and snowy white, a classic combo that flatters just about any style of decor. Its reflective polished surface adds to its elegant charm. 

Antico Cream

Bright, beautiful Antico Cream Granite features a chunky blend of cocoa and white with sparkling gold accents. The result is mostly light in color, making it an ideal choice for larger installations such as this central island/breakfast bar that dominates the room. With such an easygoing combination of granite colors, you can’t go wrong when selecting complementary furnishings.

When choosing a bold granite countertop, there’s no reason you have to use it for the entire room. As shown here, Cygnus Granite creates an eye-catching center island, also serving as a cozy gathering space for snacking or socializing. The side countertops are a lighter, more subtle material. Don’t think of it as a compromise  think of it as an expertly calculated balance.

Blue Bahia

Blue Bahia Granite has a relatively subtle pattern, with swirls of gray and white. It’s the bright, true blue coloration that steals the show! Natural, blue granite colors are incredibly exotic, and this countertop will draw jaw-dropping attention to anyone you welcome into your kitchen space. Although it’s not neutral, blue is a popular favorite shade, so it’s sure to please. 

Golden Lightning

You can’t get much bolder than Golden Lightning Granite. Seriously, forget about what you thought you knew about natural stone. Walk away from the soothing, indifferent hues of pale gray. If excitement is what you crave, we offer polished shades of pine- and olive-green shot through with streaks of gold. It looks amazing in an otherwise all-white kitchen. 

At MSI we believe there’s a time and a space for pale neutrals, solid colors, and subtle patterns  but there’s nothing like bold, bright granite slabs to wake up a room and make a statement. Decorate with confidence, and make your kitchen the true expression of your personality and your family’s lifestyle.
