What color sink should I buy?

My kitchen is smaller but open to dining and family room. We just got new ss aplliances with light hickory cabinets and going with a darker sparkly granite (Maximus). I do not want a ss sink. Should I do a cream of brown granite composite (blanco)??

Are you thinking the blanco biscotti color for cream? I have that color and I love my sink. I have a dark countertop and wanted contrast. It worked out very well but I think you could go either way. The blanco silgranit sink is very nice - I chose the cascade configuration.

Can you post of a photo of the granite and the cabinets? My clients have been very happy with the Blanco silgranite sinks.

Hi ann! Yes I was thinking biscotti but what about biscuit? Also should I do the faucet in stainless steel or bronze? So many decisions to make. Here is a pic of my kitchen and the granite I picked out. What do you think? I originally thought I wanted a light color but changed my mind to this. So now I need to pic out the sink and faucet. I would appreciate any help I can get. Thank you so much!! Kim

Actually that is not a very good pic of the granite. Here is more of what it looks like. I'm open to other granite colors because I have not paid for this yet.

Choose the counter then revisit the sink choices.

99% on the granite. Would you do a granite composite sink in cream, tan or espresso? Faucet in stainless steel or bronze? Thank you!!

Hi ckmc2002. My counters are a charcoal color. Here's a picture with my biscotti silgranit cascade sink. The biscuit color is a bit lighter than this with a few more yellow undertones. Biscotti is closer to my floor tile because my floor tile doesn't have any yellow undertones. I have oil rubbed bronze stuff thoughout my house and stainless appliances so I went with a ORB faucet. If I wouldn't have had other ORB, I would have just matched my appliances and gone with a stainless faucet. It's a great sink!

Looking at your kitchen, I think I'd go with biscotti and a stainless faucet, but of course, it's a personal choice. But, what color are your light fixtures and door hardware?

Also, I have natural quartzite rather than granite, but my slab was polished and I paid a bit extra to have it leathered (about $600/slab). I love the leathered look and that can be done to granite too. Just another consideration:)

Thank you! For your help. My fixtures are bronze and I was thinking bronze hardware. I love the leathered look as well but have already went over my budget!! Keep the ideas coming!!! Kim
