    Which granite is suggested to go with golden oak cabinets?

    Giallo Napoli

    St. Cecelia Gold

    Star Beach


    Also, I don’t know what to use for back splash please provide suggestions.

  • - Derek 03:38PM, Jan 10 2012 Make sure to look at the full slabs in-person at the stone yard, as a lot of choices in the "Giallo" family offer subtle differences in color tone & pattern that can only be appreciated by seeing the stone in-person. You should also bring samples home to put them against your cabinets in the kitchen light and see how you enjoy the combination.
  • - Kinga 12:38PM, Jan 9 2012 The Giallo Vicenza granite would work as would the New Venetian Gold, Giallo Napole and Santa Cecilia Real. Let me know what you think!
  • Tammy 08:17PM, Jan 8 2012 We chose burnished chestnut cabinets...what granite do you think would look good? I am possibly thinking of Giallo Vicenza...what do you think?/
  • Debbie 12:50PM, May 13 2010 we are going towards nvg our cabinents are creamy white I dont know what to use for backsplash can you help
    • All Granite and Marble 04:30PM, May 13 2010 Debbie: Perhaps a light subway tile in a beige/tan color.
  • kathy 11:43AM, May 4 2010 does new venetian gold granite go with golden oak cabinets
    • All Granite and Marble 09:22AM, May 5 2010 kathy: Yes but not much contrast. It would however create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
  • Deb 11:44AM, Apr 26 2010 Opinion please? New Venetian Gold counters with natural hickory cabinets? Floors are pecan -uniform medium stain. Island body will be a deep (cabin) red.
    • All Granite and Marble 12:40PM, Apr 26 2010 Deb: New Venetian Gold is an excellent choice, another suggestion is Santa Cecilia.
  • brenda 12:00AM, Apr 8 2010 what's the difference btw nvg and nvg "Select"? Tkx
    • All Granite and Marble 08:52AM, Apr 8 2010 brenda: I'm not sure, sounds like a different delivery of the same stone. No two deliveries look the same.
  • Susan 09:28PM, Mar 11 2010 We have medium to light oak (honey) cabinets., ss apliances, nned to get floor and backsplash. Next to the cabinets, Giallo Vincenza seems to pop with alot of peach color - not sure about that. I also like NVG - not so much contrast but I do like the more muted tone. What's your opinion? I'd appreciate any other suggestions. My home is decorsted in lighter colors.
    • All Granite and Marble 10:20AM, Mar 12 2010 Susan: I'm leaning towards the Vicenza, it's not overwhelmingly dark but creates excellent contrast.
  • Beth Walker 06:02PM, Mar 3 2010 We are trying to make a decision on new countertops. Cabinets are med cherry and the floor is a white tile. Appliances are black. We are thinking about New Venetian Gold. Good choice or bad? Any other suggestions?
    • All Granite and Marble 04:09PM, Mar 4 2010 Beth Walker: Very nice choice. The occasional garnet speckling in the NVG will compliment the cherry nicely while the beige highlights will offset the cabinets. Another suggestion would be Crystal Gold.
  • Andy 05:57PM, Jan 27 2010 Thanks. Out of curiosity, why Giallo Ornamental rather than NVG or santa cecilia? What is the difference? Any receommendations for tile or paint? Thanks.
    • All Granite and Marble 08:51AM, Jan 28 2010 Andy: Either one of those you mentioned will look nice in your set-up, but the Giallo Ornamental does not have as much garnet or burgundy flecks as the others, and you already have plenty of those color tones in your kitchen. A simple tumbled marble tile for backsplash and a neutral beige on the wall should tie everything together.
  • Andy 03:48PM, Jan 27 2010 We have Mulberry Alder cabinets and birch wood flooring (specks of red and brown). Any recommendations?
    • All Granite and Marble 04:41PM, Jan 27 2010 Andy: I'd go light for contrast and an inviting atmosphere -- perhaps Giallo Ornamental.
  • lisa 01:26PM, Jan 12 2010 we are remodeling our kitchen and our cabinets are maple with a chestnut stain and our island is cherry with a rubbed black stain. What do you think - I perfer not to go dark as i always had dark granite and i want a change
    • All Granite and Marble 01:56PM, Jan 12 2010 lisa: Yes -- a light granite will fare better in this set-up. Take a look at Giallo Ornamental and/or New Venetian Gold.
  • Angie 01:19PM, Jan 11 2010 We have medium/light oak cabinets and flooring in our kitchen. Thinking of New Venetian Gold. What do you think?
    • All Granite and Marble 01:52PM, Jan 11 2010 Angie: A very warm choice, it will match nicely.
  • Greg 09:30PM, Dec 16 2009 We have medium cherry cabinets and cherry floors. Currently we have beige/ bland Corian and we are changing to granite. I want to do our island with Metallic also called Cosmic Black or asterix cosmos and on the perimeter we were thinking about Opalescent. I really like the Metallic but I'm concerned it will be too dark and I don't know how the differing granites would work together. On the contrary my wife was looking at New Venitian Gold. I can see this would be more universal for re-sale. In addition it seems like it would feel warmer than the black. Can you offer some thoughts?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:04AM, Dec 17 2009 Greg: You are on the right track; the NVG will make the kitchen look more inviting and provide much needed contrast.
  • Tammy 11:46AM, Oct 25 2009 We have pecan light stained cabinets (tons) and rustic red oak flooring of multi colors along with a warm light yellow walls. Would the NVG go on the countertops? We are planning on doing the small island in black granite???Your advice is appreciatee.
    • All Granite and Marble 09:33AM, Oct 26 2009 Tammy: The NVG would look fantastic, also check out Giallo Veneziano.
  • Vaia 11:46PM, Oct 18 2009 I'm remolding my kitchen right now, and I have red oak floors with Maple Cordovan cabinets. Would New Venetian Gold be a good countertop to lighten up the area. What other countertops would go with this combination?
    • All Granite and Marble 03:03PM, Oct 19 2009 Vaia: NVG would look good, also check out Santa Cecilia.
  • Cindy 08:56AM, Sep 3 2009 I am virtually 100% sure we are using New Venetian Gold in my kitchen remodel - perimeter cabinets are Medallion Maple cabinets in a Morel paint finish w/ Vintage glazing and island will have a Pecan stain w/ a burnished finish. The island surface will also be NVG. The new space is open plan and you will be able to see the bar in the adjacent family room from the kitchen. (Bar cabinetry will also be in Pecan w/ the burnished finish for continuity/visual interest.) Basically, I want to go with a different granite on the bar surface in hopes that it will complement what is in the kitchen rather than competing with it. (BTW - I am definitely going with a different granite in the Family Room as we are doing a full height NVG kitchen backsplash and feel using the same material on the bar/fireplace surround is way too much NVG - even though I love it!)
    • All Granite and Marble 09:31AM, Sep 3 2009 Cindy: I would say a darker stone, take a look at Baltic Brown.
  • kristin 10:31PM, Aug 11 2009 we are remoldeling and wondering if nvg would go with our toffe maple cabinets and darker wood floors??? thanks
    • All Granite and Marble 08:44AM, Aug 12 2009 kristin: Absolutely!
  • salley 02:45AM, Apr 5 2009 we are remodeling . the cabinets will be maple with a ginger glaze . do you think the venetian gold will go. my floors are tan/sandy with specks of brown
    • All Granite and Marble 10:52AM, Apr 6 2009 salley : It would be a nice delicate look; easy on contrast. Make sure that the maple is lighter than the stone or choose a darker batch of NVG.
  • Meg 11:04PM, Mar 27 2009 I have natural maple cabinents and a distressed black island. I'm thinking of New Venetian Gold. What do you think?
  • Stephanie 09:23PM, Mar 13 2009 What is the name or color of the tile on the backsplash in this picture.
    • All Granite and Marble 05:12PM, Mar 16 2009 Stephanie: Sorry, don't have that information.
