Take It for Granite: Granite Colors That Create a Calming Bathroom

April 12, 2016


If you have your heart set on natural stone, you’re in good company. When RICKI (the Research Institute for Cooking & Kitchen Intelligence) asked homeowners to list their top bathroom essentials, just under half chose natural-stone countertops as a bath “must have.” To achieve new heights of style, first choose a natural-stone countertop material like granite. Next, select the granite colors that set the desired mood in your bathroom.
