Looking for granite to go with cherry cabinets in traditional kitchen

I found granite called Hawaii in a local yard. I'm trying to find pictures where it is used to see if it goes with cherry cabinets. Any ideas?

Are the cabinets natural cherry or stained cherry?

Here are some examples of Hawaii. It's beautiful and would look very nice with natural or darker cherry cabinets. I also like the backsplash that was chosen in the first pic.

In both the examples you've shown, it looks like there are natural cherry cabinets. So you should be fine unless your cabinets are a radically different color.

I think so too Addison Design, but I can certainly picture that granite with a much darker shade too. It looks to be a very nice neutral.

what would you suggest for a backsplash? A very neutral tile? I don't want to compete with the granite.

This color of granite is imperial coffee. I loved that it had bits of red in it to go with the cabinets

Thanks. What do you think about a backsplash? Maybe a neutral tumbled marble?

Yes, something much like the "Hawaii" pic I posted above. That backsplash looks great!

We use cherry often, and I prefer a deeper color counter, since the contrast brings out the beauty in the cherry.
Here is our Lake Forest Park project, with textured cherry cabinets and "Lagos blue" Silestone quartz counters.

For the backsplash, stick with something quiet and classic. Granite is busy and there is no need to compete with it. You can never go wrong with subway tile, white or cream, whatever is the best match to the granite. Match the grout to the tile or for more impact, pick a dark color from the granite for the grout.
