Aside from design and overall flow, aesthetics is another priority when building a home. There may be instances where the materials used in one area do not complement the paint colors used in other areas.
For example, brown granite, a natural stone most notable for countertops, backsplashes, or vanity tops, can sport a brown, black, and white-speckled look which may not always be a great match with some typical paint colors. But since brown granite can be ideal material for countertops, homeowners and designers may need to think through their paint selections ahead of time.
Here are some factors to consider with brown granite:
The kitchen is one of the most prominent areas where if designers and homeowners are not careful, colors and designs can compete, clash or just be too busy.
Keep in mind that in a kitchen, there may be paint colors, countertops, a backsplash, and appliances to coordinate. If too many of these items are on the dark side, the kitchen may appear smaller and, well, too dark. Contrasting colors can help in this instance.
2. Design Theme
The overall design of the home will also affect how colors work together. If a home’s overall color scheme is earthy and dark, choosing brown granite for the countertops may have a more dramatic effect.
For example, a dark brown granite with a speckled look is very attractive and the earthy brown color can pair well with earth tones and other neutral shades in the house. It can also be emphasized with a darker shade of brown paint or a matte finish on the walls.
The stone’s unique look makes it a perfect choice for those who want to add a sophisticated and rustic feel to the kitchen.
3. Complimentary Colors
Countertops can also complement the color scheme used for a home. If the walls are painted in a creamy white color or light hues, the countertop’s brown shade can add a touch of warmth and depth to an otherwise neutral home.
But just like with natural stone pieces, a lighter shade of brown complements lighter colors more than dark ones. It also makes the countertop look more appealing, especially when paired with a matte or sanded finish.
The lighter color will give the stone a more modern look and appeal in a matte finish. But a sanded finish is another way of achieving a sleek finish that can lend a more natural vibe.
Before Sealing the Deal
Brown granite is a perfect choice for countertops or backsplashes. The natural stone material is not only durable it adds a warm and rustic feel to a kitchen. However, designers and homeowners will want to give some thought to overall color choices, design and flow when deciding to use brown granite in the kitchen.
