For years, people were selecting darker granites, earthy tones and putting them with darker cabinets but today that has completely flipped. The modern and traditional trend in countertops now is lights, whites, greys, and can incorporate beige and “greige” accents in the stone, splash, and paint. Greige is a warm toned grey that can be mixed with earthy tones. This opens up the space and makes it feel larger, airy and modern. This color palette goes just as well with traditional or modern, even contemporary.
