Light colored granite countertops are versatile and can be the perfect finishing piece for many kitchen designs, from classic to contemporary. Let's take look at some of our favorite light granites for kitchen countertops.

The natural browns and creams in the Astoria granite are a beautiful compliment the light brown cabinets. Using durable granite countertops for the working areas and serving areas makes for an easy cleanup. Light countertops save this space from potentially appearing too dark because of the absence of windows in the kitchen area.

In this kitchen, a large island featuring Typhoon Bordeaux is the focal point of the room.

A classic, ogee edge on the center island and perimeter countertops provide a luxurious style, which is the finishing touch for this gorgeous kitchen.
Colonial Gold is a popular light granite with slight movement. Small maroon speckles scattered throughout the stone offset the subtle color combination of white, grey, and beige, making it a great options for kitchens of any style. Here, Colonial Gold pairs wonderfully with a variety of golds, creams, and browns in an open kitchen design. The extensive countertop space not only provides ample room to prepare and serve meals but because of its light shade, it also enhances the size of the room.
Viscont White is a pristine granite option that is white with grey veins. The neutral palette of these countertops is practical and ideal for a variety of decors, especially contemporary designs like seen in this kitchen. Despite its quaint size, light design elements, like Viscont White countertops, ensure the room does not feel cramped. Because of its complexion, a large variety of accent colors and design features can be used without creating a harsh contrast of colors. The brushed finish on these counters adds a textural element that causes them to appear slightly lighter.
When choosing the perfect countertop for your kitchen, bathroom, or any other project, be sure to consider additional design elements in the room. Features like appliances, cabinets, and backsplashes will help determine the right stone for your space.
