Perfect countertop for white shaker cabinets?

I am torn between black galaxy or saturnia granite for our white shaker cabinets. Plan to have white subway tiles as backsplash and dark espresso wood look ceramic tiles on the floor. The house is transitional/contemporary style. Saturnia is beautiful itself with a lot more sparkles and movement. But I am afraid that it will look old and worn out after a few years....... Please help!!!!

The saturnia might be better with your flooring color than the black galaxy

Saturnia definitely ties in better with your flooring. It should wear very well given that it is granite and as far as natural stone goes, it is the most durable and forgiving. The intense veining will also conceal any blemishes that develop.

Thanks! I am leaning toward Saturnia too but have heard that it is much softer stone requiring higher maintenance. I wanted to get the crisp clean look but I am just wondering now with Saturnia, it would look too traditional. But I love the spark (mica) and its color palette.
