Pin It

Black granite and black quartz are both perfect for designing a sleek and modern kitchen or bathroom. It can be used for kitchen worktops, backsplashes, and even wall and floor tiles.

Black granite in particular has remained a popular choice. However, despite its name by no means does ‘black granite’ mean a completely featureless black finish – there are many styles available including:

Comparison of Black Granite Slab: Absolute Black, Star Galaxy, and Black Marinace

  • Absolute Black – with just a few odd flecks of very dark grey
  • Star Galaxy and Stargate Cosmos – both of which contain sparkling copper or gold flecks
  • The boldly patterned Black Marinace – containing larger fragments of white, grey and even multi-coloured materials
  • Grainy, sandy finishes such as the almost grey Impala Blue, Nero Profundo and Porto Branco

Each and every one of these finishes provides an excellent contrast to the glossy white furniture and sparkling chrome fittings used in so many of today’s stylish kitchens. And for the complete look, add in glass or chrome splashbacks and accentuate the granite’s sparkling finish with indirect lighting, a kitchen or bathroom can easily be transformed into a glittering dream.
