Granite matching--kitchen. bathroom. laundry.
April 28, 2013 in Design Dilemma
When we bought our pre-existing house three years ago, the kitchen had a beautiful granite island. The other countertops were Formica. We replaced the Formica with granite that matches the island (Baltic) as soon as we moved in.

We used remnant granite for the laundry room sink area. We used another type of granite (Gold Dust, I think) for our daughter's bathroom, which was Formica.

We are now wishing that we had replaced the builder grade 'marble' countertops in the master and guest bathrooms. At the time, we felt we were already spending so much money during our cross country move. Now we want to replace it.

Here is my dilemma--will it matter that the granite is not consistent throughout the house?

I don't think the granite needs to be the same in every bathroom (personally I would prefer it wasn't).

I agree with Sam .... I purposely chose different granite for each bath/laundry/kitchen/desktop in our home.

Not at all! I actually often recommend that you use different granite throughout the home, just like different paint colors. Here's a project where we did granite in six rooms and the outdoor bar....all different:
And the overall effect is still a very unified decor throughout.
