Are you thinking about black granite countertops for your kitchen? This is your guide to black kitchen countertops!

When it comes to choosing your kitchen countertops there are quite a few things to consider. You have to think through the style you want your kitchen to be, the functionality you need and the durability that will fit your family. After all, keeping your black marble countertops in good condition when you have a family with small children will be a full time job! That’s why we always encourage people to take time to research the countertop option that will work best for their space and lifestyle.

Why choose black granite countertops for your kitchen?

One of the best choices for durability and cost is granite, especially black granite! You won’t see stains, it’s scratch resistant and hard for solid durability. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Granite? That reminds me of my mom’s kitchen in 2004! Granite has come a long ways since then. You will have hundreds of options when it comes to dark granite, including granite that doesn’t look like granite at all. You can find options that look like marble, quartz or just pure black. We especially love the finish options for this beautiful stone, including matte black and leather!

Here are a few black countertop options we love!
