Granite counter suggestion

April 28, 2013
We ordered white cabinet & glass backsplash. The appliances are stainless & the floor dark stained hickory. Will " white springs" work or shall we go for a different color? Our style is transitional. Any maintenance concern with white granite counter Below is the link to the backsplash

The link takes you to a product that has three colors. Are you using the last one (the gray/white)?

Churcha, Congrats on your kitchen remodel! Same question as Deborah -- that company, Architectural Ceramics, has many product lines -- which one(s) are you using?

BTW
I got a sample of the granite & it's river white. I was not too crazy about the Kashmir white. Is there another white granite I should consider?
Thanks

Churcha, I'm sure there are many other whites. Do you have photos of your sample ?

My concern was whether or not the granite has any of the warm tones that the tile backsplash has. I had never seen White Spring with any warm tones in it. I am not familiar with River White. When I google it, I get some pictures that are all cool tones and others that have warm tones mixed in. I think as long as there are warm tones in the granite it will all look great together. I agree, I am not crazy about Kashmir whtie.

The tones in particular slabs of the granite are going to vary. I suggest taking those tiles, and even a sample of your cabinet color, with you to the granite vendor, and seeing what everything looks like together, with the actual slabs you will be buying. The tile is beautiful and seems like it will look terrific with whitish granite, as long as the tones work together as Deborah was saying. Sounds like you are fairly far along in your planning and they should let you tag specific slabs now, to be held for when you are ready for measuring/installation.

Granite colors can vary quite a bit. Much like if you pick up a dozen rocks out walking, they will be different colors even if they are the exact same type of stone. So I would reiterate, take a tile sample and a cabinet door to compare to the exact slab of granite you are getting.

I was in a new home built by a custom builder the other day, and the cabinets and backsplash go together, but the granite countertop clashes so badly it just grates on the eyes.

thank you all for the help, I really appreciate it. I will take the tile sample and cabinet door to select the slab of granite.
