    Hi Alissia, I would help you but please let me know some more details about your kitchen. How big is your kitchen, do you have a lot of light there, what kind of floor and wall will you have ? Also do you prefer consistent colors of granite or more busy with some movements ? Please let me know and we will find the best recommendation. Thanks !

  • Alissia 04:23AM, Jun 2 2013

    Hi! Can you please indicate the best granite color(s) to coordinate with hickory cabinetry and Mannington Sobella Alloy (Copper) vinyl flooring?

  • Marble.com - Derek 08:43PM, Apr 27 2012

    Hello. I can give you some classic suggestions to give you a visionary idea and feel which should help you make a correct decision. Take a look at color tones from the Benjamin Moore paint line such as Pine Barrens and Fresh Dew. Good luck!

  • Marble.com - Derek 03:06PM, Apr 24 2012

    Dear Natalie, I will ask you some questions to get a feel for what kind of granite stones you are attracted to so we can help you make a good decision. Do you enjoy movement and veins in the stone or a more consistent, speckled pattern? Are you leaning toward a dark or light color for the counters? Are there any granite's so far that you've seen that have caught your attention?

    Hello, I have crema bordeaux for counter,  am looking for a green paint for kitchen to mathc having a hard time, do u know of a color green that would blend nicely with crema B.?

  • Natalie 04:23PM, Apr 19 2012

    Hi!, I have cherry on maple new cabinets just installed and cannot choose the granite. My kitchen is not very light has just one window and floor is white oak kind of yelowish color. We plan to refinish the floor after granite is done. Please help. Thank you, so much!

  • Marble.com - Derek 03:47PM, Mar 21 2012

    You could use a darker granite such as Golden Jade, Butterfly Antique, or Tropical Brown for the counters. For the flooring, a porcelain option such as Fidenza Bianco from Daltile is appropriate. In regard to backsplash, a light and warm tile to offset and contrast the darker granite should be used. Take a look at Capadoccia Glass Tumbled Travertine and Puetro Gold 4" x 4" Tumbled tile. I've attached pictures for your reference. 

  • Marble.com - Derek 02:40PM, Mar 21 2012

    The Bordeaux granite would surely compliment the brick fireplace nicely, I do not think it's too dark but will rather create an old-worm, cozy, and warm feel. Make sure to look at the full slabs in-person and try to pick the lightest batch.

  • Penny 05:43PM, Mar 17 2012

    We are replacing cabinets, countertop, and flooring in our kitchen. What countertop, floor, and backsplash would you suggest for American Woodmark Maple Spice cabinets? My kitchen is 11x14 with no window, but natural light from an octagonal window by the back door and a large passthrough to a light family room on one side and the living room on the other. I'm drawn to dark granite like maybe verde butterfly, but I don't know if it would be too dark. Light countertop would be o.k.,too; but, I don't like reds or pinks because of the light reddish tone of the cabinets. I have no clue on flooring either. Appliances are white. As you can see from the photo, we now have a 1970's kitchen with laminate faced cabinets. Please help.  Thank you, so much. 

  • Dorothy 04:02PM, Mar 15 2012

    Installing rye with onyx glaze cabinets (med to dark brown) would the Bordeaux be too dark.  The focal point would be an old brick(terracota, browns, beige, yellow) fireplace  in the attached family room. .

  • Marble.com - Derek 08:50PM, Feb 10 2012 If Brown Alpine feels a little too busy, perhaps stones with less movement such as Brown Vicenza, Boreal, and Copa Gold would be more appropriate. However if you enjoy the deep, rustic, golden veining then you can't beat the Brown Alpine.
  • great dane lady 06:21PM, Feb 6 2012 I'm concerned that "Brown Alpine" which I have picked for my kitchen which has honey oak cabinets will make the kitchen look smaller. I'll be having wood laminate red oak flooring put in later on.   what are other choices that would look best with my oak cabinets.  It's a florence model for Ryan homes with all stainless steel appliances?

    thanks for your help,  Barbara
  • Marble.com - Derek 08:37PM, Jan 31 2012 Crema Bordeaux can vary quite greatly between slabs and deliveries, but I don't think it's too much brown in the design at all. Make sure to look at the slabs in person and pick the one you like most, because of this variation. The Crema Bordeaux has a rich pattern with deep colors that will compliment your design nicely. Please be aware that the above pictured is just "Bordeaux" not Crema Bordeaux, two similar but different stones from the Bordeaux family.
  • Amdlovett 06:01PM, Jan 28 2012 We are looking at granite our kitchen, we have light oak cabinets and an oak floor that will be removed and tiled.  I picked out crema bordeax for the counters, is that too much brown and not enough contrat?

  • Marble.com - Derek 07:34PM, Jan 20 2012 I do not feel as the colors you've looked at are too dark, rather they provide an excellent and elegant contrast to offset the color tone of your cabinetry. Options such as Ubatuba are a very dark green, with a hint of gold to compliment the wood elements in the design. A stone that is a rather new delivery to our collection that would also look very nice is Monterry Green. For some darker suggestions away from the green theme, take a look at Imperial Coffee, and Bahia Brown. Hope this helps!
  • Marble.com - Derek 06:34PM, Jan 20 2012 My suggestions for you are Boreal, Florence Gold, and Golden Jade. I've created a Comparison Chart for your reference, take a look here: 
    http://www.marble.com/material... In addition, our newest arrival, Toffee, may be appropriate with it's warm base and darker flecks for an effective contrast:

  • Jeff A 05:40PM, Jan 19 2012 Hi, I have an open concept ranch style condo 2003 built with light/red oak throughout. The oak is light but can come across orangish is certain lighting. The kitchen cabinets are a light reddish/orangeish oak (Merrillat Classic) that closely matches the rest of the woodwork. They are longer cabinets as I have 12' vaulted ceiling with a skylight. I have a peninsula style breakfast bar 9' x 3' in the open and I have painted the walls a Benjamin Moore Saybrook Sage. Do you have any ideas about what Granite colors I should be looking at. I am afraid that a lot of movement in the granite may not look right with the grain in the oak cabinets, but I could be wrong. My cabinets are newer style oak so the grain pattern is light. I have looked at samples of Verde Butterfly, Uba Tuba, Verde Peacock. I am afraid what I am looking at may be too much green and not enough contrast. We also want to plan a full tiled backsplash which will help with a contrast. Any ideas?
  • Marble.com - Kinga 05:09PM, Jan 18 2012 Checkout Ubatuba, Bahia Brown and Imperial Coffee for a dark, speckled look. However, a stone with a linear pattern, instead of swirls, like Brown Alpine, Crema Bordeaux and Sanguine will help make the kitchen feel visually longer and somewhat larger. Let me know how you feel about these suggestions!
  • Kenjeanprad 04:24PM, Jan 18 2012 I'm more attracted to movement and veins but feel a speckled pattern would work better due to the size of my kitchen.  I'd prefer dark over light as I am replacing white corian.
  • Marble.com - Derek 09:04PM, Jan 17 2012 Are you attracted to movement and veins in the stone or a more consistent, speckled pattern? Are you leaning toward a dark or light color? Your description is very broad, and I want to pin-point recommendations that you will enjoy and seriously consider.
  • kpjp 03:19AM, Jan 17 2012 I have medium oak floor and cabinets with white appliances.  Any granite or quartz color suggestions for countertops and island?
  • Marble.com - Derek 08:48PM, Jan 12 2012 I recommend to look at Crema Bordeaux, Jacaranda Wood, and Niagara Gold. Let me know your thoughts on these choices!
  • kac 01:05AM, Jan 12 2012 We have honey oak cabinets and tile floor with blue, pinkish red tan, gray...what color granite would you use? KAC
  • Marble.com - Derek 09:08PM, Nov 9 2011 Any options you've looked at so far that catch your attention? Do you enjoy a speckled, consistent granite or veins and movement in the stone?
  • JR 03:43PM, Nov 5 2011 I have medium oak (orangish) cupboards, brushed aluminum appliances with black trim, a black smooth-top stove, light oak floor. The kitchen is in the middle of the house open to the family room (dark brown leather furniture, pinkish brick fire place, light creamy tan rug) and the dinette area. (There are no walls separating them.) There are no windows in the kitchen - so no direct sunlight. Suggestions for countertop granite?
  • Marble.com - Derek 05:41PM, Oct 12 2011 I feel like a rich and elegant granite color such as Ibere Crema Bordeaux would be a centerpiece of your kitchen design and add the right amount of flair. Some other recommendations on the lighter side for a strong contrast are New Colonial Dream, and Delicatus. The best thing to do at this point is to look at the full slabs in-person and bring samples home with you so you can slowly begin the process of elimination until you find the one.
  • Marble.com - Kinga 11:27AM, Oct 12 2011 I really like the Typhoon Bordereaux for your setup. Also check out the always timeless and classic Crema Bordereaux, Golden Rock, Golden Noir and the popular Ubatuba Gold. Click here to see all these stones in a comparison table http://www.marble.com/material.... Keep in mind if you get lots of natural light, a dark stone would provide you with a beautiful and dramatic contrast. But if you get limited natural light, a lighter stone may be a better option as it would brighten up the space and make it feel visually larger. Let me know what you think so far!
  • Jennifer 11:40PM, Oct 11 2011 we are remodeling our kitchen, we chose dynasty autumn cherry cabinet and very light beige color tile floor. And now have hard time to choose granite. what's your suggestion :)? i was looking all over the place: surf green, hawaii green, typhoon Bourdeux, tan brown, etc. Any suggestion will be really appreciated! - Jennifer
  • Marble.com - Derek 09:09PM, Sep 13 2011 Both are solid granite choices that create an elegant and sleek contrast for your cherry wood. However, I am leaning a little bit toward Typhoon Bordeaux because it's small and subtle golden veins will compliment your cabinet color better than the more grey toned White Spring. Another option I recommend for you to consider is Delicatus. I've created a Comparison Chart for these 3 choices, take a look: http://www.marble.com/material... Hope this helps and good luck!
  • Adriennekolda 10:20PM, Sep 12 2011 We are remodeling our entire kitchen.  I have chosen cabinets from krafts maid.  Huntley style autumn glaze cherry.  My husband wants to choose White Spring for the granite.  I like the Typhoon Bourdeux with the dark cherry. what do you think?
    Also picked a martha stewart handle. Looks like my stainless fridge. Do you think they would be too stark a contrast?
  • Marble.com - Derek 01:47PM, Aug 29 2011 Typhoon Bordeaux, as well as Delicatus, are both wonderful choices with organic color tones that will compliment your design nicely. Take a look at our new shipment of Delicatus, I believe this stone would look gorgeous: http://www.marble.com/blog/del...
  • Marble.com - Kinga 09:01PM, Aug 23 2011 The Typhoon Bordeaux is a beautiful choice for your setup but you have to keep in mind the stone has some red and bordeaux veins going through it so in case you’re not a fan, you may want to consider other options. Take a look at Colonial Gold, Golden Arctic and Golden Beach EX. Each one of these stones would look magnificent in your bath. However, I really enjoy the Typhoon Bordeaux with your design elements because it will tie everything in well and stone itself would be a show stopping centerpiece. It’s very important you see the slab in person and pick up a few samples to bring home as it will help you narrow down your choices.Let me know what you think!
  • Ashlee S. 09:50PM, Aug 19 2011 We recently retiled our master bathroom (shower, bath, and floor).  The cabinets are honey oak, the walls are a taupe, fixtures are oil rubbed bronze, natural travertine around tub/shower accents with a ceramic tile on floor and shower walls.

    We are looking for granite to replace the old laminate counters.  Just on pure attractiveness I really like the typhoon bordeaux, but I it's hard for me to imagine it with the other tile.  Any suggestions would be great!

    I attached some pics below...sorry they are sideways!
  • Marble.com - Derek 12:22PM, Aug 16 2011 A color such as Ibere Crema Bordeaux looks very elegant against black cabinets and rich against cherry cabinets, I recommend to take a look. Some other options could be Delicatus White or Colonial Gold. Let me know what you think!
  • Marble.com - Kinga 05:10PM, Aug 12 2011 Have you seen anything you like? Are you looking for a dramatic contrast like Kashmir White against the black cabinets?  Or something softer like the Astoria?
  • Tammy 02:14PM, Aug 12 2011 Our house is a standard center hall colonial...we are looking to put in black cabinets with a cherry island...or cherry cabinets with a black island...the floor is  tile that incorporates gray,tan and white...please help me with color of granite, the kitchen flows into the living room that has a fireplace that has gray stone surronding it..I think that black cabinets are sharp,right now I have white and I'm bored with it...suggestions please!
  • Marble.com - Kinga 01:44PM, Jul 19 2011 If you get a lot of natural sunlight, I would say go for the dark! Espresso or chocolate brown would look stunning against Oak floors and a wavy stone like Jungle Green (see attached photo). A look like that is definitely modern and classic at the same time. Let me know what you think!
  • Marble.com - Derek 12:31PM, Jul 19 2011 You can use oak to match, or use white cabinet for a sharp and clean look. As for the granite options, you have a very open plan right now. Do you like consistent, speckled pattern granite, or stone with movement and veining? Did you have a light or dark color in mind?
  • JennD 04:41PM, Jul 15 2011 Hi Everyone! I am looking for some advice as I am not great at picking out new cabinets or countertops. Please help!

    So--I have oak wood flooring. I like somewhat modern, and want it to look sharp. What color cabinets should I get (oak to match?) and what granite countertop design?

    Thank you in advance!
  • Marble.com - Derek 06:54PM, Jul 8 2011 Ibere Crema Bordeaux is also a beautiful variation that would look wonderful. Are you leaning towards a dark or light color? Do you like a more consistent pattern with speckles or veins & movement in the stone?
  • Marble.com - Kinga 10:16PM, Jul 7 2011 Stones in the Bordeaux family like Crema Bordeaux, Typhoon Bordeaux or Madma Bordeaux would look great as they tend to feel very rich against oak cabinets. Do you have any favorite colors you would want to incorporate into the space?
  • Debbiemathew 12:08AM, Jul 7 2011 Please help. I have golden oak cabinets with taupish colored ceramic tile and white appliances. What color granite do you suggest?
  • Marble.com - Derek 04:11PM, Jun 15 2011 You don't want everything to match, that would make the design bland. You can use a white cabinet and Bordeaux Terracotta as the countertop material. Some other options are the Crema Bordeaux, and Four Seasons. For backsplash, try a tumbled marble tile. A good choice is the Botticino variety. Hope this helps.
  • Adicom 03:38PM, Jun 15 2011 I am trying to choose the colour for the kitchen cabinets that will match the reddish teracota marble floor tile we have and also the backsplash and granite counter top
    thanks,
    Adriana
  • Marble.com - Derek 04:18PM, Jun 13 2011 A darker cherry stain or a mahogany color is the optimal direction to go in for this set-up because it will contrast the tones in the Juparana Tobacco granite. A nice accent color would be a very deep red, and the mushroom bisque wall color is very pretty and appropriate for your design. Hope this helps.
  • lisa 03:14PM, Jun 12 2011 I need help. I am building a vet hospital. I have juparana tobacco as my granite. Not sure what color cabinet to do. Dont want it too dark... didnt know if cherry was too dark.
    I love behr's mushroom Bisque as the color on the walls and cant fine an accent color.
    Most of my floor is a taupe brown. But the reception area is tile.. it has a speckling of red in that picks up the color in the granite. But primarily neutral color.
    Cabinet color?? Paint color??
    thanks

  • Gail 04:55PM, Nov 11 2009 We have light glazed cream color maple cabinets with faint cocoa brown distressing. Style of cabinets is tradtional. Thinking of using crema bordeaux or giallo ornamental. What are your thoughts?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:05AM, Nov 12 2009 Gail: Those two choices are very different, if you want a richer color go with Bordeaux.
  • Lorraine 09:03PM, Nov 8 2009 I have white wash cabinets and a light colored laminate floor. I like the Juperana Namibia and my husband likes the Tan Brown. He thinks that my choice might look too washed out. We plan to paint the walls a rose merlot color. Do you think the Juperana Namibia would make it look washed out?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:27AM, Nov 9 2009 Lorraine: I don't think it will look washed out.

    • All Granite and Marble 09:07AM, Sep 3 2009 Joann: You can go for plenty of contrast with something like Butterfly if you have good natural light and a spacious area, or you can opt for something like this Bordeaux, it's a very warm and exciting stone.
  • Susan 07:25PM, Sep 1 2009 Thanks....I was just looking for another's opinion as I was told I shouldn't get granite counters because the pattern of the granite wouldn't look good with the stripes!
  • Susan 12:38AM, Sep 1 2009 I have a small kitchen with blue striped wallpaper. Does granite go ok with striped wallpaper?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:21AM, Sep 1 2009 Susan: Of course it does, there is nothing wrong with striped wallpaper!
  • Lori 04:09PM, May 24 2009 I have natural hickory wood floors, oak cabinets, mostly black appliances buy my stove has some stainless accents.

What granite countertops would you recommend? I would like to use some type of tile backsplash with some glass tiles as accents. Do you have any suggestions?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:05AM, May 26 2009 Lori: There are quite a few stones that could go into your design. There is one I have in mind though, that stands apart. It's called Blue Eyes. You can find it in our Stone Gallery (ID#48). I think it would be a playful way of matching the blue.
  • Ramona 11:18PM, Apr 2 2009 I have golden oak cabnets and golden oak floors, stainles and black appliances. What color granit would look good?
    • All Granite and Marble 02:29PM, Apr 3 2009 Ramona: Try Colonial Gold, it will complement the oak but since it's a lot lighter it will make a nice contrast.
  • Sigrid 09:17AM, Mar 28 2009 We are having natural hickory cabinets with a med wood floor.What color granite should we use?
    • All Granite and Marble 12:52PM, Apr 3 2009 Sigrid: Try this one Juparana Colombo. I know it has grays but I think it will give it some edge against the cabinets and floor.
  • Cheryl 09:36AM, Oct 13 2008 I have a kitchen arrangement that looks similar to this and I am thinking about putting light colored granite with black veins in it on the countertops and black on the bar itself with backsplash having both colors involved. My cabinets are dk. cherry. Would that combination draw away from anything or would it look good together?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:53AM, Nov 19 2008 Cheryl: If done right it could look very entertaining to the eye. It will all depend on how well you would be able to match the stones.
  • Cheryl 04:38PM, Sep 22 2008 I have sage walls, red tinted pergo floors, and buttermilk cabinets what color countertop would look best?

    • All Granite and Marble 05:33PM, Jul 17 2008 Joan D: Sounds like a fairly medium tone of wood. In that case I would suggest going either much lighter or much darker than the color of the cabinetry. Dark browns or light golds I would say.
  • Joan 12:43PM, Apr 9 2008 I have maple cabinets with a swirled look medium brown floor. I like #58 Bordeaux. Is this a good combo or do you suggest something else.
    • All Granite and Marble 12:30PM, Apr 16 2008 Joan: As long as you like the stone, it will work.
  • cathy 04:56PM, Mar 26 2008 Hi, I have been in twice. I started with the black family but I am looking at others now. Cabinets are natural mable,and look just like these, black appliances and hw floors. What do you think about Bordeaux #58?
    • All Granite and Marble 06:03PM, Apr 4 2008 cathy: Looks like a good possibility. Look for a dark bordeaux with black in it. Try Crema Bordeaux perhaps.
  • lori 02:32PM, Feb 1 2008 I have honey oak cabinets and plan on a dark grey blue tile. I am leaning toward the kashmir white. I like the lighter countertop. Any suggestions

  • JESSICA 02:58PM, Nov 20 2007 Would a light hickory cabinets and giallo maracuja granite look good together?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:46AM, Nov 21 2007 JESSICA: It's hard to say. I am afraid it might get a bit too close color wise.
  • Chris 10:53PM, Nov 12 2007 Would cherry cabinets look good with this granite?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:44AM, Nov 14 2007 Chris: If it's natural cherry, then yes.
  • Connie 12:13PM, Nov 7 2007 Prailine Maple cabinets small skinny kitchen lots of windows -- trend now for dark or light granite?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:49AM, Nov 8 2007 Connie: For your cabinets, since they're light, I'd suggest a darker color.
  • Cecile Reitman 01:03PM, Aug 20 2007 I have white cabinets and golden oak floors. getting stainless appliances. have been looking at light creama bordeaux or giallo natalia. What do you think?
    • All Granite and Marble 12:10PM, Aug 21 2007 Cecile Reitman: Either one will work considering that the cabinets are white.
  • michelle 04:00PM, Aug 15 2007 I think that for those colored cabinets, using bordeaux was too light. Using something like creama bordeaux dark that has a good mixture of the green and burgundy would have it stand out more.
    • All Granite and Marble 09:46AM, Aug 17 2007 michelle: Correct. More contrast would have been nice, but it always is a personal prefference.
  • patrick 12:19AM, Jul 10 2007 what do u think will match my walnut spice color cabinet? I like this stone but im still searching for the best one.my floor is beige as well as my wall. u think a dark stone will match my cabinet.pls help. tnx
    • All Granite and Marble 10:27AM, Jul 12 2007 patrick: I think that depends how dark you want to go with the stone. If your kitchen is big, open and bright you don't have to worry, but too many dark elements in the kitchen may make it look smaller than it is.
  • All Granite and Marble 05:16PM, Jun 15 2007 There are many that would work. Just look at the pictures.
  • lin 12:31PM, Jun 3 2007 I have honey oak cabinets what color granite or marble will look best with oak?
  • Lisa 11:56AM, Mar 6 2007 u dont tell the cost for the items how are people supssed to buy them
    • All Granite and Marble 04:03PM, Mar 20 2007 Lisa, each job is different and there are over 20 factors that determine the price. It is nearly impossible to give a good estimate without detailed plans.
  • All Granite and Marble 09:15AM, Feb 8 2007 This color will look good. The lighter you will go, the less of a contrast you will have between the cabinetry and the countertops, and contrast is good :)
  • Marie 02:43PM, Feb 7 2007 I like this coloring. My cabinets are honesuckle oak with a tan tile flooring - should I go lighter or is this shade okay
  • kay 01:12AM, Oct 21 2006 i think this is a great look myself . the black in it gives plenty of contrast
  • All Granite and Marble 08:14AM, Oct 16 2006 Pat, fax a drawing of your project to us.
  • Pat Moore 10:22AM, Oct 15 2006 This would be the style I am looking for. Top counter is 1'wide and lower is a little over 2' wide.I would like rounded,waterfall look. Can you estimate the cost with size appox. 15ft long?
