Choose the best granite for a modern kitchen
When you start looking at design ideas for your new or upgraded kitchen, there are two basic types: modern, and country. More and more people in Nashville, and the surrounding middle Tennessee area, are opting for that modern look – sleek, refined, simple and sexy.
Granite may be an old world material, but if you choose it correctly you’ll be able to easily pull off a modern granite kitchen look.
Why do you want to use granite in a modern kitchen?
When you think about modern things, you likely think about metal, computers and modern technology. We all love those things, we’re both on computers right now, but these types of things do not work so well in a kitchen! Granite is the endurable and long lasting material that will give you a modern look for years to come.
In addition to how it will look modern when installed, think about how it will look great for years to come – and how something modern can not look worn out and old. It is nearly impossible to scratch and chip granite, they use diamonds to polish it afterall, so you can be sure that your kitchen will look modern long after it is built.
Color choices in a modern kitchen using granite
Modern kitchens are all about simplicity. Having a wide variety of colors clashes with the entire design ethics of modern kitchens. Fortunately for you, there are many different types of colours available when it comes to granite kitchen countertops.
The most frequently used color for a granite countertop in a kitchen is classic black. If this is what you’re thinking then you’re in luck, no other stone does black like granite. You can choose something like our Absolute Black, which is almost completely pitch black, to something that is a bit more decorative, like our Volga Blue.
If you’re looking for something a little different for your granite countertop, you can be sure that granite is the stone you want. We offer off-whites, yellows and even a lovely red granite countertop that we call Red Dragon.
The finish of a granite countertop in a modern kitchen
There are few choices when it comes to a truly modern kitchen countertop in granite – you need a high polish that shines as bright as your chrome or stainless steel. Luckily for you, granite is one of the best to have a finish on it like this as it retains its smooth look for years due to how hard it is.
