Granite Colors for Bathroom

Granite is one of the most durable countertop materials available, but that’s not all it has to offer. This natural stone adds elegance to any space, and it’s very easy to maintain, making it a top choice for bathroom vanities, showers, and flooring. As a natural material, granite comes in a huge variety of colors and patterns depending on the mineral content. Natural-stone care isn’t an enormous undertaking, yet another reason so many homeowners are choosing granite for their bathrooms. If you’re considering granite for your bathroom, these six popular colors may be on your short list. 

1. Santa Cecilia

Santa Cecilia granite imported from Brazil has rich gold, gray, and burgundy specks and veins on beige. This type of granite has a great deal of variation, and each slab has its own pattern. Santa Cecilia is a popular choice if you want to make a statement in your bathroom. While honed Santa Cecilia granite is available, the rich colors and busy patterns look best with a polished, reflective surface. 

Santa Cecilia pairs beautifully with contemporary and rustic bathroom designs, especially rich cherry or black cabinets that add a new dimension and bring out the dark flecks in the stone. 

2. Black Marinace

Black Marinace is one of the most unique and striking types of granite and a real statement piece. A slab of Black Marinace is predominately black with thousands of petrified and shimmery white, grey, and black stones in all sizes and shapes. Quarried in Brazil, this type of stone was likely formed when a glacier tumbled the stones smooth before they were cemented into the black matrix. 

Black Marinace granite pairs well with white or creamy countertops. 

3. Ubatuba

If you want a granite color that will stay in style, you can’t go wrong with Ubatuba, one of the most commonly used types of granite for countertops. While Ubatuba can have a great deal of variation in color, it’s typically dark green with flecks of lighter gold, green, white, black, gold, and sometimes blue. Ubatuba has a distinctive tight grain pattern with little veining on the surface. 

Ubatuba pairs well with many types of cabinets, including white, cream, and light brown.

4. Caledonia

Caledonia granite is notable for its predominantly gray color with a tight pattern of specks ranging in color from white and gray to charcoal. Don’t be fooled by the description, though. Caledonia is warm, and its neutral shades pair with nearly anything. 

Because Caledonia heavily features shades of gray, white, and black, it can be paired with almost anything. Caledonia granite looks beautiful with crisp white cabinets, dark wood, and warm cherry wood. 

5. Black Pearl

As the name suggests, Black Pearl granite is a rich, dark stone that features variations of shimmering silver, gold, green, gray, and brown specks and veins. Black Pearl works best in a polished finish to bring out the metallic pearl-like sheen, but it’s also available in a brushed finish. Unlike many types of granite, this stone from India is known for its consistent mineral structure and appearance without major variations. 

The color of Black Pearl tends to change based on the coordinating color of the cabinets. Pair Black Pearl with darker cabinets for a more uniform appearance or cream or white cabinets for greater contrast. Cherry and chestnut cabinets can be used to bring out the warm tones in the stone. 

6. New Venetian Gold

New Venetian Gold is a top pick for bathrooms because its light, neutral shades make the space appear brighter and larger. New Venetian Gold granite is predominantly beige and gold with veins and flecks of brown, black, burgundy, and gray. The creamy gold appearance of the stone is uniform without the mottled look of large mineral deposits. 

New Venetian Gold granite pairs well with white and cream cabinets if you want your bathroom to appear larger, but cherry cabinets are also a good choice for bringing out the rich red minerals in the stone.

No matter which color of granite you choose for your bathroom countertops, it’s vital to maintain them properly by cleaning, sealing, and polishing them regularly. Cleaning is simple when you use granite all-surface wipes, which are also great to use on other types of natural stone such as travertine and marble.
