Granite countertop color advice desperately needed! Thank you!

12 years ago

Hello! We are updating our kitchen countertops to granite and are confused on what color to choose. We looked at a light background Typhoon Bordeaux; however, now I wonder if our oak cabinets have too much grain in them to go with all the movement in the Typhoon Bordeaux. Our floors are also a golden oak and we have a fireplace in the middle of the open kitchen, living, and dining area that has a reddish brown brick with brown morter. We do have lots of light in our kitchen and cathedral ceilings. I also saw some gorgeous black granite slabs with silver shiny areas. My husband also likes the black, but we are both a little concerned that the black may not go well with the brick fireplace. We have stainless steel appliances, and I was thinking I would replace the cabinet hardware with stainless if we choose the black. Any advice/suggestions you could provide would be greatly appreciated! Terri
