"Just like people, no two granites are exactly alike. With the enormous variety of color combinations and veining patterns available, choosing the right granite for your home can be a bit overwhelming. So how do you decide which color, pattern, or finish will best suit your unique personality, theme or style? Take the Granite Personality Test below."

(Editor's Note: I took the test. Seems I'm a Tropical Green Granite kind of girl!)

A sophisticated person desiring a theme that is modern with a contemporary feel might be drawn to granites in black. Black Galaxy is an extremely upscale material with its reflective nature and staggered specs of gold, it creates an aura of formality and even a hint of mystery.

A simple and sleek personality yearning for a sense of cleanliness might be drawn to white granites such as Almond White. This color would be ideal for emphasizing open space. White is a good color choice for those who want to bring more light into a room, or make a small room appear larger.

A person who appreciates nature and craves the feeling of being outdoors will appreciate the beauty of green granites. For example, the Tropical Green Granite combined with wood cabinets in a kitchen mimics the outdoors and offers a versatile color palette for other design elements such as paint and flooring.

The cool, calm, and chic person might enjoy granite in shades of blue. Granites such as Sapphire Blue and Blue Pearl will naturally mix with both white and wood cabinetry. Blue granite often has flecks of opal or silver tones and works well with stainless steel appliances and accents.

If you're a person who is indecisive, likes to change surroundings often or just like the natural hues of granite, then brown or beige granite tones might be for you. These dark natural tones are warm and inviting, and compliment many color schemes. Since neutral shades offer flexibility when it comes to matching surrounding decor, they are perfect for homeowners who love to change styles often.

If you are fascinated with more than one color of granite or if you don't fit any of these personality types then don't worry! The easiest way to choose granite would be to see and touch the natural stone! Make sure to stop by any of our five Surfaces USA showrooms located in Southern California and have one of our design experts assist you.
