It has similar color deposits as White Carrera marble, with slabs varying from snow white to medium greys.

Artisan White

With a neutral color palette, but bold patterns, Artisan White granite will add a statement to any kitchen or bathroom. The natural color pallet of this granite makes is another great marble alternative, but it has deeper and thicker veins of color. If you want a countertop that catches the eyes of your guests, but doesn’t clash with your interior design choices, Artisan White may be the choice for you. 

Giallo Ornamental Light

This is a lighter-colored and more affordable variation of ever-popular Giallo Ornamental granite. The affordability and wider availability of the Giallo Ornamental Light granite make it a great choice for homeowners who prefer white granite, but don’t want a heavy price tag. If you have a large expanse of countertops to cover, choosing this granite color will ensure you stay in budget. 

Black Pearl Leathered

If you want a dark granite as opposed to the white variations we mentioned above, Black Pearl Leatherhead granite could be a great choice for your home. Dark granite variations perfectly contrast white cabinets and light colored flooring, creating stark color differences throughout the room. The dark color also masks spills and messes if you have small children or an overly active kitchen.
