Grey Granite Worktops for Kitchens
A grey granite worktop is a classic choice for kitchens because it complements such a range of colours, materials and textures. Whether you want a modern, light-filled room with bright, white cabinets, or a more rustic kitchen with painted cabinets, a grey granite worktop will open up a world of possibilities.
Another reason many people love grey granite worktops for kitchens is because the stone is one of the hardest materials in the world, so it’s robust enough for family life. Granite worktops are heat and scratch-resistant, hygienic and incredibly easy to clean and maintain.
It’s a wise choice for home improvements, because installing granite worktops can actually add value to your property. Choosing a popular colour like a grey granite worktop is always a smart choice.
Why do kitchen designers love grey granite worktops?
Grey granite worktops are often a go-to choice for kitchen designers because it’s neutral and complements many different colour palettes. You can create any kind of style by carefully curating different colours, textures and materials for your kitchen.
For example, you can create a rustic kitchen with grey granite worktops and painted cabinets. You could pair chrome or steel with your grey granite worktop to achieve a more modern look. If you’d prefer a monochrome kitchen, you can simply work with another shade of grey for your walls or cabinets and a different shade of grey for the floor. You could even contrast the grey granite with other bold colours to make the worktop the focal point of the kitchen.

You get plenty of choice when it comes to options for grey granite kitchen workshops. We have both marble effect and speckled grey granite, which can be finished in a number of ways. If you’d like a sharp, reflective surface then a polished finish would be a great choice – but you can also choose the satin finish for less shine, or the matt finish for a more muted look.
You can also choose from a range of colours, whether you’re looking for a dark grey granite, a light grey granite, or something in-between like steel grey granite.
Grey sparkle worktops
We get a lot of enquiries about grey sparkle worktops, with many people drawn to the way the surface gleams when it catches the light. It’s the reflective crystals that give this sparkle effect. If you’re looking for grey sparkle worktops, we’ll be able to advise on the best types of material to achieve this look.

What types of kitchen units go with grey granite?
If you want to brighten up a kitchen that has grey granite worktops, then white cabinets are a classic choice. This balance retains the impact of the granite kitchen worktop, but the cabinets will reflect lots of light and give the space a more airy, bright feeling.
Another popular choice is to pair grey granite worktops with grey cabinets. If you have a dark grey worktop then a lighter grey colour would make it feel cosy yet fresh. A less common, but more striking option, would be to choose dark grey cabinets with a light grey kitchen worktop.
Ultimately, grey granite worktops are popular because they go with a variety of colour schemes. Whatever colour of cabinet you want, there will be a shade of grey granite that will complement it.
