Are you ready for Granites? If you are, the first thing you have to think about is your color scheme. If you are like most people, you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, so you want something you like personally. Colors are a good way to express your personality, so this is more important than following trends that can change in a short time. A color scheme you find pleasing will last much longer than any trend. In addition, color can have a big influence on your mood and general emotional health on a daily basis.
Choosing the right color scheme can be challenging for most people, however. You will have to live with it for a long time, so you want to make sure you choose wisely. When planning your kitchen remodel, most experts will advise you to choose the granite countertops first because it occupies a lot of real estate in your kitchen and attracts a lot of attention. Using the granite countertops as a guide is a good way to make the right color choices for the rest of the room.
Choosing the colors around your granite countertop means you should choose the dominant colors of the granite carefully. Fortunately, granite comes in a wide range of colors and patterns, so choosing one with the colors you want in the kitchen should be easy enough.
Before walking into the granite showroom of your choice, get some idea of what kind of mood you want to create in your kitchen. Here is a guide to colors you may find in shades, and tones of granite countertops.
Some design tips
While colors have similar psychological effects for most people, it is not always the case. Some colors may make you feel different from others because of some associations you may have with them. It is important to keep this in mind when choosing the colors for your kitchen. If a color makes you feel uncomfortable or sad contrary to the consensus, then avoid it. Consult your own feelings and reactions to create the kind of mood you want.
If you are not entirely sure what you want, take time to look through design sites, magazines, and blogs for inspiration. When you find something that catches your eye, bookmark or pins it so you can go back to it later.
Whatever color scheme you choose, try to keep it to four distinct colors or less. More than that and it can look chaotic.
Psychological effects of colors
Below are the basic colors you will find in your granite countertops, and their general psychological effects. Most granite slabs will have a mix of these colors, although it will usually have a dominant one. When you find one, the psychological effect may vary depending on the specific shade and tone, so keep your mind open to its effects on you personally.
kitchen with reddish granite countertops is a very intense color and has an energetic vibe. It raises the excitement levels more than any other color and has a stimulating effect in any room. Studies show that red can increase the blood pressure and quicken breathing, so a solid red countertop may be too striking a color for comfort. However, granite-like this one with swirls of red interspersed with black is a perfect choice. It serves as a beautiful centerpiece under bright light, and look elegantly muted under indirect or dim light.
kitchen with yellowish granite countertops yellow is a happy color because it reminds people about sunlight and joy. It is an active, energetic color without the drama of red, and maybe characterized more as uplifting rather than exciting. It is a good choice for kitchens, especially if there is not a lot of natural light. Studies show that yellow stimulates the nerves and purifies the body.
While yellow is definitely welcoming, a solid color can be a bit too dazzling. Some people find it enraging or frustrating in large doses. A predominantly yellow granite such as this one retains the feelings of joy and happiness without drowning you in it.
kitchen with blue-streaked granite if you want a calmer and more relaxed mood to your kitchen, blue may be just the right color scheme for you. Exposure to different shades of blue slows the breathing and pulse rate and lowers the blood pressure. However, darker shades tend to make you feel sad, and lighter shades tend to come across as too chilly in a kitchen with little or no natural light. You will want to offset that with warmer hues or complementary colors. The blue in this granite slab is in just the right combination with brown and white to be the perfect choice for a calm yet warm kitchen.
kitchen with gray countertop The most common color for granite is gray, which is why many interior decorators love it for kitchen countertops. Gray is a neutral color and lends itself well to reflection. If you have a happy personality, then gray colors will make you feel happier. If you are an active, determined person, your kitchen will feel just as purposeful. You can find many types of granite in various shades of gray. Choose one that seems to reflect your personality best.

These color guidelines can help you choose the right color for your granite countertops and kitchen. However, in the end, it all boils down to how certain colors make you feel. When choosing granite for your kitchen, you will definitely find one that will fit your personality.
