How do I pick a color for granite countertops?
In my experience I would suggest going as dark as possible with then granite, then brightening the room with lighting and wall colors. Darker granite has a quite a few positives, it costs less, stains less and usually has a nice visual depth without being too busy. Your cabinets are a pretty light color and can look really sharp with the contrast of a dark stone.
