Black Impala is also a lower priced granite. It has more fleck than Cambrian...and will show streaks less, I think. Here's a picture of a display in my showroom. Display was not 100% complete at time of photo.

Cabinet/Counter colours - which one?

posted by: mariposatraicionera on 06.26.2006 at 11:35 pm in Kitchens Forum

We have chosen Kraftmaid maple cabs in honey spice, and we've decided on Silestone countertops. However, we like all three counter choices! I don't have to decide right now, but I'd like to know which one or two you'd eliminate if you had to choose based on the wall colour (we're keeping that). It's Benjamin Moore's Desert Tan and we love it.

Here is a link that might be useful: Countertop

I just posted this pic on another thread, but here is our Brazilian Brown for you to visualize. We love it...our wall color is green, I found it hard to pair a yellow tan (like Desert Tan) with the counters. BB has a peachy/pink tone to it.

What everyone else said. Just wipe with a damp cloth if needed. I love slate for a backsplash!

Another one with a very clefted slate backsplash...warm water and a soft rag or sponge when needed. I find it no more difficult than I've found previous smooth surface backsplashes (at least so far and it's been a little over a year.

It's a little hard to see, but we have had this textured slate backsplash for 6 years and liked it so well we kept it when we did a recent remodel over the last few months. It wipes easily with a damp cloth, but the only issue is that we have just a few small oil spots from splatters that I can't seem to get out. It was sealed originally and probably is ready for a re-sealing. All in all, it's pretty low maintenance.

I read the part about all the different color hues on the drawer fronts, and this IMMEDIATELY jumped to mind-- for the backsplash, you might look into honed asian slate. One look at the pic below will tell you why I suggested it!!

If you use a color enhancer on this stuff, you'll immediately see all kinds of metallic golds, silvers, blue metallics, bronze, and copper hues come out. It's breathtaking with the wet look!

Our kitchen is still in progress, but here is a picture of our floor. We went with California Gold Slate. I love the different shades and how it changes in different light.
