If there is one thing that still leaves many people in doubt, it is the colors of granite. And there are not a few! Granite stands out for its varied colors ranging from white, beige, and yellow to the darkest and most closed, such as red, green, blue, brown, and black.
The choice of granite color is not only related to the aesthetics of the environment but also the functionality.
White granite is one of the most common and used types of granite.
This type of granite has only white background color with dots mirrored all over its surface in other shades, mainly yellow, black, and gray. If you want a completely white stone, the ideal is to look for synthetic stone options, such as Silestone.
However, white granite, even with the variation of shades, is striking and gives a lot of beauty to any environment where it is placed. Here are the most popular white granite colors in Brazil:
- Itaúnas White Granite (the “whitest” of all, with a beige dotted texture);
- Dallas White Granite (white background with well-marked black dots, the texture resembles a dalmatian);
- Ivory White Granite (white background with gray and black dots);
- White Siena Granite (greyish white background with very fine black dots);
- Fortaleza White Granite (yellowish-white background with black dots);
Beige and yellow granite
Beige and yellow granite is widely used in countertops and floors, especially in outdoor areas. The advantage of beige granite is that it can be combined with different types of decoration, especially those where wood predominates. See the most used beige and yellow granite colors:
- Acaraí Yellow Granite (well-marked yellow background with spaced black dots, ideal for those looking for a more uniform base);
- Ornamental Yellow Granite (yellowish beige background with well-distributed brown dots);
- Samoa Granite (soft light yellow background with light black dots on the surface);
- Granite Santa Cecilia (mix of shades between yellow, beige, brown, and black with a strong and striking texture);
- Dunes Beige Granite (yellow background with brown dots well marked across the surface)
- Bahia Beige Granite (smooth and uniform beige background with little texture, one of the most used in clean proposal projects);
- Capri Yellow Granite (yellow-brownish background with very small black dots);
- Gold Yellow Granite (well-marked intense yellow background with evenly distributed brown dots)
By far, gray granite is one of the most used. This is because this is the most abundant granite color and, consequently, also the cheapest. It can be easily found on kitchen and bathroom sink countertops, floors, thresholds, and counters.
Check out the gray granite colors that are on the market:
- Gray Granite Andorinha (a more uniform version of gray granite with little variation in surface tones);
- Corumbá Gray Granite (light gray background with well-marked black dots);
- Granite Gray Ocher Itabira (texture well marked by dots that vary from light gray to black);
Brown granite is less popular, but it’s still a good choice, especially for countertops. Classic and elegant, brown granite matches decors of the same style. But it’s good to know that this is one of the most expensive granites on the market, along with white and black.
Among the brown granite options, the following stand out:
- Imperial coffee brown granite (brown background with well-distributed and uniform black dots);
- Tobacco brown granite (a more uniform and clean option of brown granite with little texture);
- Guaíba brown granite (reddish-brown background with well-defined black granulations);
Little used, red granite suggests unusual decorations with a somewhat eccentric and maximalist appeal. When used, red granite stands out as tabletops and countertops.
The most used red granite colors are:
- Itaipu red granite (slightly reddish background with brown dots covering the entire surface);
- Bragança red granite (one of the “reddest” granite options, but with a strong presence of black dots);
- Red Africa red granite (eccentric, this variety of red granite has a dark reddish background with dark blue dots);
One of the most popular and used green granites is Ubatuba green. This very Brazilian version is easily confused with black granite since only in sunlight is it possible to identify the greenish color of the stone.
Other types of green granite are:
Peróla green granite (another green granite option that can easily pass for black);
Peacock green granite (dark greenish background with well-distributed black dots);
Blue granite, like red, is exotic and rarely used, which makes projects with the stone almost exclusive. So you can imagine that the price to pay is not cheap. The stone is among some of the most expensive.
The most used blue granites are:
- Blue Bahia Granite (light blue background with light black dots);
- Norwegian Blue Granite (darkest blue granite option with black dots evenly distributed on the surface);
One of the most used granites is black. Elegant, clean, modern, and timeless, this type of granite goes well in many decorative styles and can be used in all types of environments, from countertops to floors.
Here are some black granite options:
- São Gabriel black granite (the most uniform and smooth of all, ideal for modern and minimalist projects);
- Indian black granite (black background and milky white spots all over the surface);
- Black Granite Milky Way (the name lives up to the stone, as the surface has a black background and light “brushes” of white);
