    Perhaps the Alfagres line 18" x 18" sized Shell color porcelain tile would be appropriate and a warm compliment. I've attached a picture for your reference.

    i have maple mocha glazed cabinents i am trying to match floor tile what color would best fit for a match

  • Izzie 12:27AM, May 4 2010 Thank you for your response. What is your opinion of doing the typhoon bord. granite as a backsplash as well? It has some benefits like easy cleaning. Is it always recommended that a tile splash is used for contrast?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:19AM, May 5 2010 Izzie: The pattern might be a little too busy, i'd go with a simpler tile backsplash, and use it for contrast as you said.
  • Izzie 06:47PM, May 2 2010 I am remodeling my kitchen and need help. My cabinets are maple stained in nutmeg/cherry, my granite is typhoon bordeaux, flooring is light creamy travertine. The kitchen is small but gets plenty of light. I can't decide if I want to do granite as the backsplash or pick a tile. What do you recommend? If I need to go with a tile, what color do you recommend? I found one that was somewhat mosaic in crema marfil small pieces with bits of burgundy marble...will that be too busy
  • sharaz 04:45PM, Nov 6 2009 Hey, what's the price for this island?
    • All Granite and Marble 04:57PM, Nov 6 2009 sharaz: For pricing please contact the office.
  • Kelli 12:25PM, Jun 17 2009 Can you tell me the dimensions of the island?
    • All Granite and Marble 12:19PM, Jun 18 2009 Kelli: 64"x30"?
  • Kelli 11:31AM, Jun 17 2009 Could you please tell me what the dimensions are for this kitchen? I'm remodeling a house with an 11X21 kitchen and would like an island.
    • All Granite and Marble 12:19PM, Jun 17 2009 Kelli: It seems to be close to that size. Maybe a 15 x 20.
  • Renee 08:27PM, Jun 10 2009 Hi, I have golden maple cabinets and a med-dark wood floor. My back splash is a taupe/tan tile. Trying to pick a marble countertop. I personally like the black/brown marble. I want a rich look not too busy. Unfortunately I have white appliances that I cant change out for now. I will be selling my home in about 3 years. So resale appeal is inportant. Thankyou
    • All Granite and Marble 10:24AM, Jun 11 2009 Renee: The white appliances do make it tough. Try Giallo Fiorito.
  • raquel 07:52PM, Oct 11 2008 I should say the daisies on my mexican tile are more gold than orange.
  • Raquel 07:22PM, Oct 11 2008 I have mexican tile backsplash the tile background is off white with a large orange daisy-like flower in the center. I need new granite counters that would go against this tile. I am thinking of madura gold. Would this look okay? Our floors are brick and our appliances are stainless steel and/or black. Would this look okay?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:38AM, Nov 19 2008 Raquel: Very good choice.
  • Maria 11:40AM, Jul 25 2008 I am having Kraftmaid Cherry Cabernet Cabinets installed soon and am thinking of either Benjamin Moore Cherry Stain or Minwax Golden Pecan on red hardwood floors. I would like to paint the walls a gold color; what color granite and backsplash would you suggest?
    • All Granite and Marble 03:23PM, Jul 25 2008 Maria: Golden Valley, Kashmir Gold, Juparana Golden Vyara... these are some that will fit. Check out the Stone Gallery for more options.
  • furi 11:33PM, Jun 16 2008 I have dark scraped wood throughout the house. The family room is connected with a earthy greeny/grey, with a teal accent color.
  • furi 11:32PM, Jun 16 2008 I have the same granite.I like modern.Problem: I have cathedral kitchen cabinets in honey oak.The floor has beautiful with 12 by 24" of brown and cream tile. The walls are pale green. I want to paint the cabinets. Should I go with cream, or chocolate kiss by olympic, or more of a deeper brown, swiss chocolate by valspar?
    • All Granite and Marble 02:04PM, Jul 8 2008 furi: I would go dark. I don't know the two brown colors, but they sound ok.
  • kathy 11:26PM, Apr 18 2008 I have white washed oak cabinets and floors. I have a fireplace in ubatuba tile. I am struggling to find the right granite for the counter tops. The only thing that seems to work is verdi butterfly but I like the med range warm colors better. Its hard to put w/white wash cabinets. HELP
    • All Granite and Marble 03:41PM, May 19 2008 kathy: Why not something from the Giallo Family? White shouldn't be a problem to match to.
  • Katie 02:47PM, Mar 24 2008 would love your opinion... maple mocha glaze cabinets, beige tile floor not too much light in the kitchen would you recommend a darker color granite i.e. something black for a contrast or would something like this color work? thank you
    • All Granite and Marble 05:52PM, Apr 4 2008 Katie: Black might be way too dark with limited lighting. I would stick to earth tones in the medium browns. Check out some of the darker Giallo's.
  • Jyoti 11:58PM, Mar 15 2008 Hi Would love your advice. We have light oak cabinets and a while backsplash. We also have a light beige tile on the kitchen floor. what color of granite would look good with that? Thanks.
    • All Granite and Marble 11:08AM, Apr 4 2008 Jyoti: Really anything darker than the wood is. Stay in the warm tones and you'll be ok.
  • Heidi 10:59PM, Feb 28 2008 Please suggest a few granites for creme cabinets with coffee glaze and sable island. Floors will be oak w/ dark stain. I prefer veins vs. speckles - I like Vyara Gold but afraid it will look gray. The granite above looks nice but will it make my creme cabinets look yellow?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:45AM, Mar 3 2008 Heidi: No, I don't think it would. Certainly, it would tie into the cabinets a bit, but because of the patter, it should stand out quite a bit.
  • dennis 01:35PM, Feb 22 2008 I ordwered the counter tops on Wednesday they came and measured on Thursday They will be installing the tops on Tuesday unbelievable I ll let you know how they turn out
  • Nonie McKie 03:03PM, Jan 21 2008 What is the name of the white marble that is not as porous as regular marble and it is being used for kitchen chefs (pastry boards and cutting boards as well as all over countertops)
    • All Granite and Marble 10:02AM, Jan 22 2008 Nonie McKie: I see no relation to the photo above, but you're probably thinking of Statuario.
  • Karlee 01:31PM, Jan 7 2008 How thick are the counter tops? 1 1/2"?
    • All Granite and Marble 08:51AM, Jan 8 2008 Karlee: 1 1/4" actually.
  • David B. 04:08PM, Nov 27 2007 Does granite Stain?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:05AM, Dec 4 2007 David B.: When properly maintained, it is nearly stain proof. For more information visit the FAQ section of the website.
  • jj 05:50PM, Nov 16 2007 I noticed you dont have the color of granite on your website that i ordered
  • Vickie 04:30PM, Sep 30 2007 Does granite contain radio active materials?
    • All Granite and Marble 08:46AM, Oct 1 2007 Vickie: No, absolutely not. You're probably thinking of Radon gas. But that's not an issue. Only very few stones contain it, and the amounts are very insignificant. Marble Institute of America has tested this, and found that Radon is not a problem with granite.
  • All Granite and Marble 11:12AM, Jul 11 2007 The correct name is Golden Valley :) Kashmir Gold and Golden Valley come form the smae quarry and they are very similar so it is easy to mistken them for another. :)
  • Mark T. Bobitka 07:28PM, Jul 9 2007 I am trying to sell my home. I have old plain white countertop. I have maple cabinets and a fairly new white tiled floor. Now, I think your golden valley would match my home. Do you think this is a good color . .. I am looking for a maple or creme type finish. What do you think? Leave an e-mail at [email protected]
    • All Granite and Marble 10:23AM, Jul 12 2007 Mark T. Bobitka: I think that Golden Valley will be a good match. It also depends on other elemts of the decor like wall colors etc. You may also look at Harvest Cream or Cream Italia.
  • Karen 09:11PM, Jul 7 2007 You mention that this stone is called Kashmir Gold. However at the top of the page it states its called "Golden Valley" Which is the correct name? Thanks!
  • Karen 04:18PM, Jul 6 2007 Hi, do you sell islands with unfinished wood?
    • All Granite and Marble 11:01AM, Jul 11 2007 Karen: No we do not sell any furniture.
  • All Granite and Marble 05:29PM, Jun 15 2007 I'd say it depends a lot on the size of your kitchen but try something medium dark to get some contrast going there. Giallo Veneziano perhaps?
  • All Granite and Marble 04:49PM, Jun 15 2007 We are updating the website to link the pictures in the gallery with the Stone Selection Tool. Therefore the names are not currently shown. Try looking in the previous comments to find the name. This particular stone is Kashmir Gold.
  • Josh 10:23PM, Jun 10 2007 AGM in a few post people have asked for the counter top name in this post and others. You reply back but you leave out the name.
  • mike 06:57PM, Jun 6 2007 i have natural maple cabinets,a lite beige porcelan,floor that looks like tumball marble and sage colored walls, what color granite counter would you reccomend.
  • Valerie 09:40AM, May 28 2007 How can I find out the name of the granite shown in each picture?
  • All Granite and Marble 05:05PM, May 23 2007 Those are oak.
  • cindy 03:16PM, May 23 2007 what is the name of this stone and what cabinets are in the photo? cherry? Thanks
  • All Granite and Marble 01:59PM, Apr 2 2007 Anything will do.
  • zeny 11:46PM, Mar 31 2007 what is a good counter top for antique white wit chocolate glaze cabinet with honey color hard floor
  • All Granite and Marble 12:13PM, Mar 26 2007 We do not sell tiles. The ones pictured here are tumbled marble.
  • Ruvonda 08:45AM, Mar 8 2007 Would you happen to also have tiles to match this granite, and if not what color tile would you go with? Thanks
  • All Granite and Marble 01:49PM, Mar 5 2007 For prices please contact [email protected]
  • Juan 07:18PM, Feb 26 2007 What would be the price for a 26x80
  • tim 03:03PM, Feb 9 2007 We installed a tile backsplash on a 45 degree angle above our laminate countertops. We have now decided to install granite. Would you recommend installing the granite with a backsplash just like the laminate, or installing the granite with no granite backsplash, and adding to the existing tile backsplash. Thanks
    • All Granite and Marble 04:39PM, Feb 12 2007 Tim, the second option sounds better. A small granite backsplash is rather tacky. Either do the full splash or none at all.
  • All Granite and Marble 09:12AM, Feb 8 2007 Well, the stone itself is in the middle pricewise, but the edge is the most expensive one out of the premium group. So that look is costly.
  • pheadra 08:41PM, Feb 7 2007 i really like the island how much would that look cost.
  • Betty 09:09PM, Jan 9 2007 I'm trying to find stone #255 shown on your web site. Is this it?
    • All Granite and Marble 08:27AM, Jan 10 2007 Betty: No this is not it.
  • All Granite and Marble 03:28PM, Jan 9 2007 This is granite.
  • Janice 08:02PM, Jan 6 2007 Is this countertop granite or marble
  • Barbara 08:42PM, Jan 4 2007 This matches my counter in the kitchen. How much would something like this cost? How can I find out? Thank You,
    • All Granite and Marble 09:39AM, Jan 5 2007 Barbara: Get the dimensions, draw a simple layout and fax it over to us.
  • Wendy 09:46PM, Jan 3 2007 I have always thought that kitchen counters needed to be of granite because it is far less porous than marble. But I love a gray veined white marble and I am seeing a lot more of it in use now. Is it foolish to use marble instead of granite to replace my tile countertops?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:49AM, Jan 5 2007 Wendy: It really is your choice. Be aware thought that marble countertops installed in a kitchen are not covered by any type of warranty. It is nearly impossible to protect marble completely in a kitchen. It's far too porous and will stain regardless of sealing. Unless you plan to just look at it and not prepare/eat food on it, you can do it.
  • All Granite and Marble 11:18AM, Dec 9 2006 Just the island with a simple edge would be around that price. This is a premium stone.
  • meghan 01:40PM, Dec 6 2006 just the countertop is $700?
  • Kathy 02:02PM, Dec 1 2006 I really love this look my husband and I are moving and would love and island for our new kitchen. How much would something like this cost? Just the basic cabnit 2 door 2 drawer look. We have a budget of about $700.00
    • All Granite and Marble 07:39AM, Dec 4 2006 Kathy, this island is very expensive. Mainly because of the Waterfall Edge. You could do something of similar size for around $700 using simple edge.
