    what price group is this in?

  • Peter 06:34PM, Jun 10 2013

    You can always go with a granite backspash of the same stone typhoon bordeaux

  • Linda 10:29PM, Apr 28 2013

    I have cranberry red cabinets and just installed typhoon bordeaux. It has a lot of movement of the deeper blue/grey, some of the green with reddish splotches and another river bottom looking movement. I am working for an arts and crafts, craftmans look. I am thinking of a subway tile, matte finish...any suggestions for the backsplash?

  • Marble.com - Adrian 05:06PM, Apr 20 2013

    Hi, I'm so sorry for the late response. I think that if you like the glass tile you can go with not so busy mosaic but with the light and neutral colors, which will give you more elegant atmosphere. Please take a look at the attachments for your references: Anatolia Bliss Creame Brulee Line Mosaic and Ivory Glass just for the contrast. I hope I could help !

  • Mel 05:46PM, Apr 8 2013

    Hello....i'm leaning towards sienna borodeaux for my counters, I have dark Cherry cab and will be installing darkish (Not espresso ) wide planked wood floors, struggling with a back splash.  I have lots of crystal in my kitchen with hanging lights and chandelier over kitchen table all being crystals.  I was thinking of a glass tile, but didn't know if that would be over kill.  Any ideas??

  • Marble.com - Adrian 05:36PM, Mar 25 2013

    Hi, I'm sorry that you haven't found the same stone as the one on the picture. Typhoon Bordeaux is available in three different facilities, have you seen all slabs in every location ? All shipments have different color variations and grain directions which are beyond the control of All Granite and Marble Corp., that's why we always recommend to go to one of our facilities and see the whole slab on the yard inperson.

  • Joeft 05:14AM, Mar 24 2013

    it's a shame it's impossible to find Typhoon Bordeaux in the shade shown in your pictures above.  You shouldn't show the pictures if the product is not available.  The typhoon Bordeaux in your inventory isn't even close in colors.

  • Marble.com - Adrian 04:06PM, Mar 11 2013

    Hi, I'm leaning toward Sienna Bordeux and Typhonn Bordeux, both stones have got beautiful veins and will give you the spicy character for your kitchen. Regarding to backsplash I would recommend you to go with neutral colour. I've attached you two samples of backsplash that I have found for you: Reflex Porcelain Mosaic in Ivory and Beige Marble. I hope I could help you !

  • Dmiller Paris 04:37PM, Mar 8 2013

    My kitchen has honey colored ash cabinets, dark brown ceramic tile floor, and a tight pattern of dark rustic red and gold wallpaper.  I am looking at Sienna Bordeaux, Typhoon Bordeaux and Tropical brown granite.  Any suggestions to which would look the best? Also suggestions for backsplash tile.

  • Marble.com - Adrian 03:49PM, Feb 26 2013

    Hi, unfortunetly we don't have the name of the tiles used as backsplash, we can only give you the information of countertops. 
    I think it might be Cream Travertina or Beige Marble tiles, please look at the attachments.

  • Fbk678 02:00AM, Feb 26 2013

    what kind of tile is in the backsplash in the typhoon bordeaux kitchen photos shown in the kitchen with the two chandeliers over the kitchen island

  • Marble.com - Derek 03:44PM, Feb 14 2013

    Hi Susan. Well, the Typhoon and Ornamental stones are quite different in terms of color tone, let's take a look at a Comparison Table I've created here: http://www.marble.com/material... I've also added a third choice in there (Siena Bordeaux) which I think would be a stunning selection as well. I recommend to acquire samples of the choices to put against the cabinets in the kitchen light to see how you guys enjoy the various combinations before making a final decision. Personally, I'm leaning toward one of the Bordeaux granite's because they have a rich color pattern that would accentuate the countertops nicely. Best of luck!

  • Susan 07:26PM, Feb 11 2013

    My patio home has an open floor plan, and I have reds, greens, and yellows as my colors.  The kitchen cabintets are cream.  I love the Typhoon Bordeaux, but my husband leans toward Ornamental.  We will be redoing the flooring but haven't made a decision.  Comments?

  • Marble.com - Derek 09:07PM, Feb 8 2013

    Hi Debra. Unfortunately you’re outside of our area of service. You can still fill out an estimate request here: www.marble.com/estimate and an affiliated fabricator in your area will contact you.

  • Debra Jones 04:03AM, Feb 2 2013

    I live in SF Bay Area (Fremont) and I have been looking for 3C Typhoon Bordeaux. I have been from SJ to San Carlos back to Hayward and haven't found too much available in 3C. Why? 

  • Marble.com - Derek 06:47PM, Jan 25 2013

    Hi Carol. Sounds like the project came out looking absolutely beautiful. Was this project installed by our company? Here on the comments section, we would LOVE to see a photo of the finished kitchen, if you could upload one. I look forward to hearing from you! :-)

  • Carol 01:35AM, Jan 22 2013

    We did our entire kitchen and it popped with a WOW factor to all realtors.   We had  rich cherry cabinets and a chocolate marble 12 inch tile floor.  The back splash was a textured neutral 4 inch tile done diagonally....and any edges of granite counter were silicone sealed....no granite edge sticking up to break the gorgeous river pattern affect of the typhoon bordeaux.  Added a small shelf wide enough for olive oil bottles behind professional range that looked wonderful.  The tile was cream * beige tones mixed...and we had natural stone look switch covers installed.  IT was gorgeous.

  • Marble.com - Derek 06:06PM, Jan 18 2013

    Hello. I have a few questions that will you narrow down your choices. Are you leaning toward a stone with movement and veins or a more consistent, speckled pattern? Are you leaning toward a dark or light countertop? Lastly, are there any colors you've looked at so far that have caught your attention? I look forward to your response!

  • Jwasserman 08:10PM, Jan 15 2013

    My open floor plan kitchen cabinets are honey-ish maple, with red oak wood floors and red walls. The present countertop is a neutral cream  laminate.  Appliances are black and ivory/cream .  The DR table is pecan inlaid with a chinese red floral print.chair cushions. Seen hundrends of granite slabs  HELP!!!

  • Marble.com - Derek 03:33PM, Dec 28 2012

    The Typhoon Bordeaux is very pretty indeed!

  • renee kaminetzky 08:49PM, Dec 21 2012

    ethel  watever this counter is it is perfect

  • Marble.com - Natalia 01:54PM, Oct 11 2012

    Hi Drew. I recommend to check out Merola Cobble Polar Ceramic Subway Tile. It's a creamy neutral that will balance the design nicely and accentuate the rich Typhoon Bordeaux granite as the focal point of the kitchen. I've attached a photo for your reference. Best of luck!

  • Drew 05:54PM, Oct 10 2012

    Wife wants Typhoon Bordeaux counter-tops to go with light cream cabinets; struggling with ideas around backsplash - floors are oak.

    Thinking a neutral ceramic like a buff or slightly lighter as seen at Ann Sachs tile. Looking for recommendations. Thank you.

  • Marble.com - Derek 06:28PM, Sep 12 2012

    I do not think the Typhoon Bordeaux should have too much burgundy veins within the slab. Overall, the base of the stone should be light for a nice contrast against cranberry colored cabinets. The burgundy veins will pick-up the cabinets. There is another stone called Siena Bordeaux that does not have the burgundy but rather more golden / rustic veins instead. Hope this helps!

  • Marble.com - Derek 05:52PM, Sep 12 2012

    Yes, I think this is an excellent combination that will create an elegant contrast in the kitchen set-up. You can also take a look at a granite called Exotic Gold. Good luck!

  • Marble.com - Derek 02:26PM, Sep 11 2012

    The Typhoon Bordeaux seems like a very appropriate choice for your design set-up. Another option that I recommend to consider is called Siena Bordeaux. Good luck!

  • Linda 09:28PM, Sep 10 2012

    I think that the Typhoon Bordeau is what I am looking for. I have a shiny white/grey marble floor ,biscuit tub/toilet and hickory cabinets with a natural stain. The whole house is neutral and i wanted to find a countertop with red or blue to tie the colors together but give this main guest  bathfoom some pop. Do you think this is the one or  would you make another recommendation? Thank you.

  • Parislv03 11:06AM, Sep 8 2012

    We went with the Typhoon Bordeaux that has golden and burgundy colors and some veins in it. Do you think this will be too much burgundy with the cranberry cabinets?

  • Melissa 09:20PM, Sep 7 2012

    Do you think Typhoon Bordeaux counter tops would coordinate well with Onyx colored maplewood cabinets?

  • Marble.com - Derek 09:07PM, Sep 5 2012

    Take a look at Costa Esmeralda to accentuate the green shades in the design. Also, the Typhoon Bordeaux featured on this page would be a lovely choice to contrast the cherry wood but it has garnet / wine colored veining throughout the slab to pick-up the cabinets at the same time. In addition, also take a look at Siena Bordeaux. Hope this helps!

  • smerg 03:35AM, Sep 2 2012

    What granite do you suggest for Kraftmaid Cherry Bay Harbor Cherry Cabnets and
    a green kitchen. Want to stay a little lighter

  • Marble.com - Derek 08:02PM, Aug 9 2012

    I'm leaning toward a subtle light granite color with warm highlights for a deep contrast. Take a look at shades such as Astoria, Sunset Ivory, and for something more neutral but with plenty of movement -- Delicatus. I've created a Comparison Table of these suggestions for your easy side-by-side reference: 
    http://www.marble.com/material... In regard to backsplash tile choices, you should really settle on the countertop decision first because you move on to backsplash. The field wall tile is the last step in the overall process. However, I can say that a either a calm and soft tumbled natural stone or an interesting marble & glass mosaic would be appropriate. Hope this helps!

  • Parislv03 11:06PM, Aug 3 2012

    We are doing our kitchen over. We have cherry cabinets in cranberry stain, our floor is tumbled marble with grayish with light gold color. What color granite would you suggest for counter tops and color for back splash?

  • Marble.com - Natalia 03:03PM, Jun 28 2012

    Are there any shades that you are leaning toward so far? I feel like a light and warm yellowish creme shade could be appropriate. From the Benjamin Moore Series, take a look at Lemon Souffle and Moonlight. Good luck!

  • Twinpooh 04:56PM, Jun 23 2012

    We have light cherry cabinets in bathroom beige porcelain floor and shower. And typhoon bourdeaux granite counter top. What color walls go with this combination. I am going crazy trying to find a color thanks. Jeanne [email protected]

  • Marble.com - Derek 05:09PM, May 16 2012

    How about a darker color to contrast the Netuno Bordeaux, which is an overall light granite shade? I have in mind cabinet colors such as espresso or caramel with mocha glaze. 

  • Barrie 03:15AM, May 16 2012

    We've had beautiful netuno bordeaux countertops installed.  Our cabinets are currently a barley yellow (the doors) and a sage green color (the base), which do not go at all.  I would like to paint the cabinets all one color and have had a terrible time trying to find the right color.  I've tried Martha Stewart's sisal, and Benjamin Moore's powell buff, standish white and bone white.  Nothing works.  My flooring is a light oak and the lighting is yellow.  Help!! 

  • Marble.com - Derek 03:41PM, Apr 24 2012

    That is my worry also -- that the slate imitation may be too busy to go along with the movement rich Siena Bordeaux. Can you upload a photo of the tile you're thinking about using so I can visualize the combination more precisely and give you an accurate opinion? Thanks!

  • johnson 01:32AM, Apr 21 2012

    We are in the process of getting sienna bordeaux countertops and would like to change out our hardwood floors in the kitchen as well.  Our cabinets are a medium cherry and the backsplash we chose is a cream tumbled travertine subway tile.  I was looking at porcelain floor tile that resembles slate, with variations of grays and browns in it...  Is the look of slate with all the variations too busy to have with the veining and strong patterns in the sienna bordeaux granite???  Thanks!  Any other floor tile recommendations you may have???

  • Marble.com - Kinga 03:58PM, Apr 19 2012

    For a neutral, timeless, elegant and sophisticated look for your space, a tumbled marble or travertine for both walls and flooring would definitely fit that description. Remember, anytime you have a natural product, whether it’s a countertop or tile, there is maintenance involved- periodic sealing and chemical-free cleaning. However, there are many beautiful ceramic tiles that resemble the stunning look of a natural product without the maintenance! Check out ceramic tiles like the Tracia, Int Azteca Bruno and Durango Ivory Porcelain for flooring. If you want to draw some interest to the floor, you can add a decorative border like Vallelunga Navona Beige Intreccio Grande as well as natural or glass pebbles which are very popular accent pieces. Many ceramic tiles come in various sizes so if you like a particular look, you can use it on the floor, wall, around the tub, in the shower and so on. You can also use a mosaic like the Tes Borders Glacier Walnut Ivory around the tub if you want to separate the space. Let me know what you think so far!

  • TiannTc21 08:28AM, Apr 19 2012

    My home is transitional. I like neutral tones with timeless elegance and sophistication. I need help with flooring and bath tile selection, accents and coordinates for Cherry cabinets and typhoon Bordeaux  granite counter top for a Master bathroom remodel.

  • Marble.com - Derek 01:24PM, Mar 14 2012

    My recommendations for you to check out that I feel could create the atmosphere you are seeking in the kitchen would be Sunset Ivory, Siena Bordeaux, Astoria, Giallo Ornamental C, and River Valley. Let me know your thoughts on these potential choices!

  • Dfles 12:40PM, Mar 9 2012

    Im so confused as to the most complimentary granite.My home is traditional. Warm tones. Med cherry cabinets,provential stained oak floors. Floor plan is open from kitchen to dining to livingroom.Kitchen is relativly small. Looking for something in granite that is light,marbled,quartz chunky w/veins,warm tones not too striking or streaky. Colors desired go in sequence....cream/yellow,taupe/olive,white,blk,gold,burgundy. HELP!
    Thank you.

  • Marble.com - Derek 04:06PM, Feb 28 2012

    Typhoon Bordeaux is a stunning choice because it's on a light background that will offset the cabinetry but has golden veins to pick-up the oak and burgundy veins to pick-up the cherry. I really think that it's a wonderful choice and you should consider using it strongly. Just remember to pick the exact slab that you want to use as with the movement this stone offers, each shipment may be unique in color tone and pattern. The backsplash should be simple, soft, yet elegant because the stone has richness in it already. My recommendations for the tile for you to consider are Jeffrey Court Cream Travertine in a block mosaic, or perhaps a Bursa Beige marble tile in a hexagon pattern. Just some food for thought. 

  • Kimberly 07:40PM, Feb 25 2012

    We have golden oak cabinets with a cherry island.  Any suggestions for
    a granite color and backsplash ideas.  We looked at a typhoon bordeaux today
    that we liked but are unsure about the oak.  Thanks!

  • Marble.com - Derek 09:15PM, Jan 26 2012 As Kinga mentioned, my number one suggestion for you to use something similar, but different, would be Siena Bordeaux. I recommend to visit the stone yard and look at the full slabs in-person before making a final decision. Good luck!
  • Marble.com - Derek 09:18PM, Jan 25 2012 Great idea on using the Typhoon Bordeaux on the island. If I may suggest another color to consider for this space, it would be the Siena Bordeaux, it's a little similar but has it's own unique characteristics. For the perimeter, a darker, more consistent granite as Kinga suggested would be quite appropriate.
  • Marble.com - Kinga 02:42PM, Jan 25 2012 Typhoon Gold, Siena Bordeaux and Netuno Bordeaux all have similar veining and color as the Typhoon Bordeaux but still remain unique and stunning in every way. There is nothing wrong with using the same stone as your girlfriend. Chances are the shipment she bought will look different from one you are considering. After you get your kitchen templated, make sure to lay the templates on your favorite slab to pick a preferred portion to ensure it looks different than your girlfriend’s. Hope this helps!
  • Marble.com - Kinga 02:34PM, Jan 25 2012 You can definitely use this stone throughout the entire kitchen because although the stone has lots of veins and movement, it’s not visually busy. If you decide to only use this stone on the island, consider using Black Pearl or Imperial Coffee would be an appropriate choice for the perimeter. Let me know what you think!
  • lc0915 04:59AM, Jan 24 2012 i am leaning toward cherry cabinets with an onyx stain.  I love the TB granite, but my girlfriend has the same one.  Any suggestions for one with similar vein and colors?
  • Amy E Orlando 12:09AM, Jan 23 2012 We are remodeling our home and are getting custom cabinets installed.  The island will be a walnut while the surrounding cabinets will be a distressed white.  We like Typhoon for the island, as we think it makes a statement.  Would you suggest we use the same granite throughout, or choose a more simple pattern to pair with the white cabinets?  We also have a copper farmhouse sink...so we were hoping to stay in the brown family.  

    Thanks for your help!
  • Marble.com - Derek 09:43PM, Dec 21 2011 You're welcome :-)
  • Rachel 07:46PM, Dec 19 2011 Thank you very much for your help.

  • Marble.com - Kinga 06:34PM, Dec 19 2011 You can also add some decorative tiles to make your backsplash ‘pop’. Good luck!
  • Marble.com - Derek 04:15PM, Dec 16 2011 Botticino marble is an excellent tile backsplash choice for your set-up. Go for it!
  • Annahansen123 02:18AM, Dec 16 2011 Thanks for your input. I have a sample of 4x4 tiles that I like too. Its called Botticino.  I think its tumbled marble. What do you think?
  • Marble.com - Derek 07:38PM, Dec 15 2011 A tile mural behind the cooktop that would look beautiful could be "Archway To Venice" and it has the burgundy colors to compliment your Typhoon Bordeaux granite. I've attached an image of the mural for your reference. Good luck!
  • Marble.com - Derek 07:33PM, Dec 15 2011 I'm going for a light 1" x 2" sized split-face travertine mosaic, I've attached an image for your reference. It's subtle yet warm and not too busy. If you want a smoother surface, check out 2" x 2" Baja Cream tumbled travertine, also attached (second image). Good luck with your decisions!
  • Anna hansen 09:00PM, Dec 10 2011 We've picked out our slab of Typhoon Bordeau . Now I have to pick something for the backsplash. Thinking subway tiles or travertine tumbled. Need some input of colors. My cabinets are white and stainlessteel appliances. Thinking of something sore muted and not shining for the backsplash since the granite will be shiny with lots of movement. Any suggestions...pictures?  Im getting anxiety from all the things  I have to choose.. Help!!!!
  • Rachel 09:02PM, Dec 7 2011 My style is transitional. I have oak hardwood floors in my kitchen and cherry cabinets. We just put in Typhoon Bordeaux granite and I have stainless steel appl. and I would like to install ivory traventine tiles as my backsplash. I am looking for your creative idea to come up with tiled design backsplash by my cooktop to reflect bordeaux color in the granite.  I tried to search but can't find anything that would be a focal point for my kitchen.  I am looking for Classy and Elegant.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.y from the granite or would it look ok?
  • Marble.com - Kinga 04:13PM, Oct 28 2011 You can also go with the ever timeless and classic tumbled marble in a diamond pattern.
  • Marble.com - Derek 02:25PM, Oct 28 2011 Since the Typhoon Bordeaux is already a rich and deep pattern with lots of movement, I'd use a soft backsplash on the neutral side to balance out the design. My recommendations are 2" x 2" Mediterranean Ivory tumbled travertine (first image) and 2" x " Ivory Classic Fontane tumbled travertine mosaic (second image). Let me know your thoughts on these backsplash tiles!
  • Soupeplus3 03:07PM, Oct 27 2011 We have cherry cabinets and cherry colored hardwood flloors with Typhoon Bordeaux granite, was wondering on a backsplash. Also, I like Latte color from Sherwin williams for paint color in Kitchen do u think the paint color will go?
  • Marble.com - Derek 07:11PM, Oct 18 2011 I'd use a darker color with green tones in it. Choices such as Verde Sequoia and Niagara Green are appropriate. But again, we do not know your taste and the direction you're trying to go in without more kitchen information.
  • Marble.com - Kinga 09:54PM, Oct 17 2011 The stone pictured above would go very well with maple nutmeg cabinets as would the Astoria, Yellow Rain and Minsk Green. Click here http://www.marble.com/material...  for a material comparison table. Can you provide us with more information on your setup such as flooring, backsplash and paint color? Also, your preferences in stone would also help in suggesting some beautiful granites. Do you like light or dark? Wavy or consistent?
  • Gustiegus 02:34AM, Oct 17 2011 what granite color goes with maple nutmeg cabinets
  • Marble.com - Derek 07:16PM, Sep 27 2011 Excellent choice. Another option could be Siena Bordeaux. Make sure to look at the stones in-person and pick the individual slab so you get exactly the parts that you love most as your countertop. Good luck!
  • Csvdv38 06:05PM, Sep 26 2011 I am remodeling..have honey oask cabinets stainless steel w/black appliances..and stone floor...how would this look for countertop/island
  • Marble.com - Derek 06:47PM, Sep 7 2011 I need some clarification. Are you considering the Typhoon Bordeaux with white or redwood cabinet color? I'm leaning toward the redwood as your cabinet color, as this will be a beautiful contrast in the design. As for hardwood floor stain choices, I'd use a nutmeg stain or something similar in color tone. Good luck!
  • Arzenstein 09:19PM, Sep 6 2011 do youthink tb looks good with light off white cabinets?
    if I use tb with redwood cabinets what color stain on wood floors
    should I use?
  • All Granite and Marble 03:37PM, Jun 6 2011 Bbcox57: Tea Chest looks very pretty, you're on the right track. Make sure to get samples of the colors and see how they look in your house before making any commitments!
  • Bbcox57 03:20PM, Jun 6 2011 I had Powell Buff in my Living Room/Foyer for 8 years and just repainted it (Sherwin Williams "Oyster Bay"). I will check into "Squire Hill Buff!" The color I was considering was Sherwin Williams "Tea Chest" because my DR is "Portabello", one shade lighter than "Tea Chest." I didn't want to do them in the same color and it looks good with the "Oyster Bay."
  • All Granite and Marble 03:07PM, Jun 6 2011 Bbcox57: The Vanilla subway tile is an appropriate choice and would tie-in the cabinets nicely. As for wall color, I had in mind options such as Benjamin More "Powell Buff" and "Squire Hill Buff". Let me know what you think.
  • Bbcox57 02:10PM, Jun 6 2011 I love my TB with with my light maple cabinets. The floor will be Costa Rican Walnut and I have SS appliances. Would a dark brown paint work or is that too dark? What color backsplash if I go w/the darker paint? I was thinking something to match the cabinets....like Sonoma's Butter or Vanilla subway tile in a crackle finish...What do you think??
  • Laura 12:37AM, Dec 18 2010 Do you think Typhoon Bordeaux could work with Cherry Cabinets?. I find that I don't like dark busy granite.because I have a very large countertop area and a busy pattern could take over the kitchen..
    • All Granite and Marble 02:08PM, Dec 18 2010 Laura: Absolutely. Go for it!
