granite color
March 31, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I am looking for a granite that almost looks like marble. Mostly white with lines of tan, brown, and gray. Can someone give me names of colors/pics? Also need advice on what color backsplash and cabinets to put with it.

Silestone has a composite that looks like white marble.
Look for Lyra, Pulsar and Helix.

And will your kitchen have an open plan, does it have windows, what appliances, copper sink or steel? The rest of your house? Flooring? Every bit of information you have post can get you closer to a good design.

Open floor plan, L shaped countertop with island, stainless steel sink and appliances, one window over sink. wood floors-not sure of color-not the light pine or the dark-medium colored oak. Same color dining table. Living room furniture is brown leather and fabric with a tiny bit of gold. Walnut Mantle with white marble around fireplace. Dark accent tables. White crown molding and chair rail (on one wall next to dining table) Will leave them white. I will be re-painting the walls and cabinets but haven't decided on colors yet. Looking for a "neutral" but still want pops of some color. Just not sure what color yet. Open to suggestions.

Offwhite and walnut (or a chocolate colored stain) sounds great for your kitchen. Play with color on the walls, painting a wall is easy and inexpesive compared to woodwork and/or curtains. Maybe a medium color on the island (with walnut top?) and darker cabinets against the walls? Some pictures would help. Personally, I think the kitchens below are adorable.
