Kitchen do-over
I have just painted my kitchen cabinets a linen white and the walls a soft yellow. It looks really good, and I am very happy with the results! Now I am changing the countertops. I want granite,and am leaning towards a dark counter color. A black with lighter flecks perhaps? Any comments?

I saw a "flip" show where the house had white laminate cabinets and they refinished them in a tuscan type paint finish? or was that a laminate overlay? anyone have any ideas

Black and dark charcoal gray shows dirt and dust. More flecks or textured the counter material the better to hide dirt/dust.

Would a light granite top counter be too white? Maybe if you have steel appliances the grey black counter top would look better... I re did my kitchen (which was really small and only had a small window) in all white with stainless steel fittings and appliances and it was brilliant for the space... your lucky to be getting granite bench tops!!!
