Either one would work and look pretty, so it's your preference. If silgranite, how about an off-white ?

I am going with Silgranite because of hard water

I have heard of some people having problems with Silgranit sinks staining (however I believe that this was mostly with the lighter colors). Either way, I would definately look into their care and maintenance. If you prefer the Silgranit, I would go with the truffle, cafe brown, or metallic gray--whichever looks best with YOUR particular slab of Alaskan White.

I always love stainless steel, and that's what I would choose for my particular home. They're indestructible and hold up great.

I'm debating on something similar. I had a anthracite sink in my old place with dark laminate counters and that looked pretty good. Right now I'm looking at doing mystic white granite counters and thought black silgranit would be too much contrast so I'm leaning towards metallic grey.

I LOVE my new Silgranit sink. It's a light color (biscotti) and no stains at all, but it's just been 3 months (I do cook every night though). It sounds like Cinder and Metallic Gray might be very nice choices for you. I got the Silgranit Cascade configuration - I love that too.
