Old-school home makeovers began with a flip through the pages of a decorating magazine. But today, we head straight to Pinterest! Oh, how did we pass the time before “pinning?” Before you get lost in the rabbit hole of decorating ideas, let’s take some time to reflect on what makes a kitchen Pinterest-worthy: a cohesive color scheme, timeless style, and amazing quality.
That goes double for kitchen surfaces! Granite countertops are a natural for the photogenic kitchen, because it has all of the essential elements. A wide array of colors can bring together anyone’s favorite color scheme.
There’s a good reason granite has been a top choice for decades — good looks and impressive durability. Check out some of our favorite kitchen scenes, and you’ll want to pin them to your board too.
Featured: Black Galaxy Granite
Nothing screams opulence like the rich, dark colors of this designer kitchen. From the vaulted ceilings all the way down to the deep brown cabinetry and column-flanked center island, it’s a celebrity kitchen if we ever saw one. The glossy Black Galaxy Granite countertop ties it all together, with a mirror-like reflection that makes it all twice as lovely.
Featured: White Supreme Granite
Why do we love the all-white room ideas from Pinterest? It could be the light, airy atmosphere they provide. It could be the feeling of cleanliness, the simplicity, or how easy they are to accessorize. If the classic combo of white cabinetry and walls next to dark brown flooring is a bit too stark, meet it in the middle with White Supreme Granite. The gray and white swirls add depth and character to any color scheme, making these granite slabs the perfect choice.
Featured: Bianco Romano Granite
Granite isn’t just for your kitchen countertops — it’s an ideal flooring surface too. Bianco Romano Granite features swirls and speckles of gray and brown against a white background, with enough variation to create interesting patterns of tile work. We know that a Pinterest kitchen would never have a speck of dirt, but this granite tile floor is pretty forgiving. Durable granite is a snap to clean, though.
Featured: Delicatus Granite
Some of our favorite pinned kitchen designs catch our eye because of how effortlessly they combine bold patterns. You couldn’t do this with just any countertop, but Delicatus Granite’s natural veining and coloration is just as much at home in contemporary settings as traditional ones.
Granite countertop colors, such as Delicatus Granite pictured above, provide a nice balance alongside the elaborate molding on the cabinetry and range hood.
Featured: Avalon White Granite
There’s just something about granite counters that takes a kitchen to a new level of gorgeousness. Avalon White Granite, an elegant mix of white and cream with dark gray accents, makes every other decorative element look even better. The dark tones align with the statement lighting fixtures, the gray complements stainless steel appliances. It’s clearly the focal point, but still subtle enough to allow for interesting backsplash tile. So sophisticated!
