Our kitchen remodel is going well and we're just about ready to order the granite countertops. We're leaning toward "abolute black," and I was hoping to get feedback from someone who already has black granite in their home. I know black is very hard and probaly won't need to be sealed, but are there any disadvantages or problems with it? Is it anything like a black car that *always* looks dirty?

In case it matters, it's a very large kitchen with plenty of natural light. There will be an 18' countertop with sink along the south wall, coffee bar and wet bar areas at opposite corners of the room, and a 5' x 7' two-level island. We went with rustic cherry cabinets (clear finish) and red oak flooring. All appliances are stainless.

Suggestions/recommendations please.

Our granite countertop is primarily black rusts, golds, with very busy patterns and you can't see the bread crumbs/dust etc. Our neighbor has basic black and they show everything. And yes, seal the granite.
