selection of granite

December 14, 2013
I am having a difficult time envisioning the completed project. Granite choice with the cherry cabinets. I would appreciate any input even knowing that everyone has their own personal flavor. If anyone has any photos depicting the combination of cherry with either crema delicatus, ouro brazil, leathered spendour gold or namibia gold I would greatly appreciate it. I know that the choices will either give a cool or warm touch depending on granite selection..and the movement varies w/ each slab. But again, I am looking for any and all input or feed back. I would even take suggestions as to which granites have worked well w/ cherry Thank you much!

The first one is nice, the last one is special...but I tend to like cooler feel.

What's your floor and what do you prefer for backsplash? Let's see if we can put it all together.

The last one doesn't do anything for me. The third one I really like. It reminds me of the Colonial Gold that we did with our maple cabinets. Your cabinet finish reminds me of what's on ours. That's my vote.

I like the last one best, the one with the tape. The others are ok but expected. Beautiful slab, what kind of granite is it?

So, I have yet to select a floor but would like a french versailles pattern in a travertine or porcelain travertine look a like. I prefer no backsplash. The granite names from left to right are 1. ouro brazil 2. crema delicatus 3. namibia gold and 4. a leathered/honed splendour gold. My home overall is warm w/ reds/greens and golds. Lots of wood- antique oak furniture and the adjacent rooms have red oak floors that will butt up to the kitchen.

Love the French Versailles floor pattern. I have travertine and love it. Still prefer last granite with your choices.

I actually do as well. A part of me wants to play it safe w/ the delicatus but I am afraid to take the leap as it is difficult for me to envision it all together. If I only had a magic ball!

I love the movement in the fourth sample, but wonder if the overall color will clash with the cherry cabinets. The one that seems most to flow with the cherry is the Namibia gold.

I always thought of cherry as a very warm wood so I would consider a granite with a warm tone. I'm sure there are wow factor slabs out there with warm tones and movement. Good luck. Love the cabinet choice!

Yes, you are absolutely correct...cherry is a WARM color. So, with that being said...I should stay w/ the gold tones?

dlc1130. I think I would. Perhaps you can find something that brings in the dark wood tone of your cabinet with some creams etc. What finished have you decided on for your hardware, appliances and lighting? Your cabinets seem to be a very classic style which should be timeless. I'm sure you'll find the perfect fit for your taste.

I have cherry cabinets and I don't like gold colors with it. I think cool grays, black, gray/blues, and gray/greens are wonderful with cherry. Whites (not so much creams) are very nice with cherry too, but maybe not with the floor you have in mind.
Of your 4 choices, I think the first has too much pink and the third has way too much gold, both of which will fight with the cherry (IMO). I like the 4th best and the 2nd second best.
I think soapstone is very nice with cherry and Virginia Mist granite gives a similar look.

The leathered effect is awesome . But it's a matter of taste. All of the above would work, but may want to go lighter since cabs are darker.
