Complementary Colors

When choosing your granite kitchen countertops or any other stone countertop, it is important to choose ones with colors that complement your cabinetry. Never match your cabinets exactly; this could result in a sterile or uniform appearance that is unpleasant to the eye. Choose countertops that have specks or flecks of your cabinetry’s color or include complementary hues. Does your kitchen have oak cabinets in medium to light brown? Go for a contrasting color for a beautiful, eye-catching look.

At Minneapolis Granite, we offer a huge selection of colors and patterns. We offer reds, oranges, purples, beiges, greens, grays and blends of these color patterns. If you are a stylish sort, we have the color to match. Classic, more traditional styled? There is an option for you as well. Come over to our showroom to browse all of our color options. Bring in a sample of your cabinets and we can even help you choose the perfect granite kitchen countertops to complement them.

Durable Options

How often do you use your kitchen? Do you have children? You will likely need kitchen countertops that are durable and can stand up to the ware and tear of everyday life. Granite kitchen countertops will be non-porous, making them stain, heat, scratch and chip resistant. They are also bacteria resistant which makes them an ideal option for the kitchen or bathroom.


Are you looking to add value to your home? The best place to start is the kitchen. Granite kitchen countertops are one of the top things new homebuyers look for in a new home and can raise your home’s value.
