1. Choose a complementary paint color to go with your granite countertops. Compare paint chip sample strips to the dominant color of your granite. Once you determine the closest match, choose a shade one to two times lighter or darker on the same card.
2. Choose a color that brings out the accent colors of your granite countertops. Study the flecks and streams of colors that are mixed in with the dominant color. You might find reds, pinks, blues, greens, silvers, golds, and more mixed in with the main color. Choosing paint colors that match these accent colors will highlight these elements in your granite countertops.
3. If you have dark cabinets and dark granite, choose a lighter color paint to create a contrast between these two focal points. If you have light cabinets and light granite, choose a darker shade of paint to keep the room from looking bland and washed out.
4. If you have dark cabinets with light granite or light cabinets with dark granite, you have many more color options. Choosing paint shades that more closely match the cabinets make your granite countertops the focal point, while choosing paint shades that more closely match the granite countertops make your cabinets the focal point.
5. Crisp white walls work well with black cabinets and black granite countertops for a striking, bold look. Bright or off-white walls work well with white cabinets and white granite countertops for a clean, monotone look.
6. Neutral colors, such as beiges, grays and creams go well with most granite countertop styles. Since granite is a natural element, pairing them with neutral paint colors works well. Choose lighter shades for a balanced look or mid-tone shades for a bolder look.
7. If you want to create a dramatic mood, choose dark, jewel-colored tones for your walls. Dark red, orange, gold, emerald, turquoise, or purple paint colors will make a bold statement with white cabinets and either dark or light granite countertops.
