Take it for Granite: Salt and Pepper Granite Colors

February 23, 2016

Whether traditional, contemporary or transitional, the use of granite will add elegance to any abode. The crafted stone is different from other rocks because it's melded together in the Earth’s core, thus creating a vast variety of granite colors. Unlike the similar marble stone that is softer and more prone to stains, granite is denser, making it perfect to use in high traffic and work areas such as the kitchen, bathroom, floor, and fireplace. Natural granite in salt and pepper color is a classic look that is always on trend and always ready to compliment any decor style for years to come.
