7 Tips for Pairing Paint Colors With Granite Countertops

Granite countertops come in a wide variety of colors and styles. Choosing a paint color that works with your granite countertops will pull the room together for a finished look. However, make sure to choose your granite countertops in Chattanooga before choosing your paint colors. There are infinitely more paint shades to choose from than granite countertop colors, so it’s much easier to match the paint to the granite than the granite to the paint.

Tips for Pairing Pant Colors With Granite Countertops

  1. Choose a complementary paint color to go with your granite countertops. Compare paint chip sample strips to the dominant color of your granite. Once you determine the closest match, choose a shade one to two times lighter or darker on the same card.
  2. Choose a color that brings out the accent colors of your granite countertops. Study the flecks and streams of colors that are mixed in with the dominant color. You might find reds, pinks, blues, greens, silvers, golds, and more mixed in with the main color. Choosing paint colors that match these accent colors will highlight these elements in your granite countertops.
  3. If you have dark cabinets and dark granite, choose a lighter color paint to create a contrast between these two focal points. If you have light cabinets and light granite, choose a darker shade of paint to keep the room from looking bland and washed out.
  4. If you have dark cabinets with light granite or light cabinets with dark granite, you have many more color options. Choosing paint shades that more closely match the cabinets make your granite countertops the focal point, while choosing paint shades that more closely match the granite countertops make your cabinets the focal point.
  5. Crisp white walls work well with black cabinets and black granite countertops for a striking, bold look. Bright or off-white walls work well with white cabinets and white granite countertops for a clean, monotone look.
  6. Neutral colors, such as beiges, grays and creams go well with most granite countertop styles. Since granite is a natural element, pairing them with neutral paint colors works well. Choose lighter shades for a balanced look or mid-tone shades for a bolder look.
  7. If you want to create a dramatic mood, choose dark, jewel-colored tones for your walls. Dark red, orange, gold, emerald, turquoise, or purple paint colors will make a bold statement with white cabinets and either dark or light granite countertops.

  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
