Is Santa Cecila granite too light?

Kinawa granite (depending on the lot) has movement that would blend nicely with cream cabinets.

Blue Barracuda has cream in it with dark blues and very dark red accents. Very unique.

We used soapstone in our ivory kitchen and have been very happy with the matte finish and durability. But if you want it to have a smooth, dark finish it takes more maintenance than granite, at least in the first year.

As much as I love the look of soapstone, I gave up on it and glad we sold the house.

Need a bit more info, what are the color of the floors? Traditional, transitional or modern?

Looks Gorgeous. Haven't picked out the floor or back splash as of yet. Just the cabinets. It's more traditional/french country, but I want to mix it with a modern black counter top???

If you want a modern look, try quartz.
