What makes MSI granite countertops some of the most popular choices for home renovation projects? This stone offers outstanding functional benefits for homeowners and delivers beauty that transcends trendiness to ensure a timeless addition to your interior design.

Granite is among the strongest and most durable materials used for counter surfaces, and our selection includes over 100 varieties, including several gray granite options suitable for any room in your home.

With warm and cool tones and patterns from subtle to dramatic, you can design the sophisticated kitchen, spa-like bath, or cozy entertaining space you crave.

What can you expect when you choose granite countertops, and how can you incorporate gray varieties into your design? Here are a few things to consider.

The Durability and Elegance of Granite Countertops

Granite is incredibly resilient and resistant to heat, fading, staining, scratching, etching, cracking, chipping, and more. It holds up well in high-traffic areas, making it a great choice for bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchen countertops.

In addition, the aesthetic appeal is second to none. Granite is known for dimensional patterns and bold contrast in a range of neutral colors and will add exceptional personality to any design. Numerous gray varieties can add enduring refinement to your living spaces.

Graceful Grays

With a variety of colors and patterns to choose from, everyone can find the ideal granite countertops for their home upgrade project. If you’re looking for a stone countertop that offers cool shades of gray and blue with dynamic charcoal swirling veins, consider our Azure Mist Granite.

Even in a neutral palette, the cool tones of this polished granite, quarried in India, stand out beautifully against latte-colored cabinets, warm wood flooring, and gold fixtures.

Mesmerizing Movement

Bold patterns can bring fantastic visual movement to your space. Gray Mist Granite features contrasting light and dark grays, warm tones, and intense striations sweeping the surface.

When used as a waterfall island and paired with heavy-grained wood flooring in ashy tones, this polished granite is like a river meandering through your kitchen. If you lead an eco-conscious lifestyle, you’ll be pleased to learn that Gray Mist Granite is certified GREENGUARD Gold, NSF, and USGBC/LEED.

Stormy Seas

If you want to incorporate a dark and stormy night into your kitchen design, Virginia Mist Granite is the perfect countertop option, thanks to dark gray tones that surge across the surface. With polished and brushed finishes, you can choose from classic high-gloss or more modern and casual vibes.

This variety pairs well with simple, flat-panel black cabinets, and an island wrapped in heavy-grained wood promotes the character of the granite.

Tranquil Tides
