5 Best Natural Stone Countertop Color Combinations

When you’re choosing natural stone for your countertops, you have lots of color options. While most stones are available in single-colored slabs, one of the reasons people choose natural stone is because of its beautiful natural color combinations.

Whether it’s multiple shades in the background stone or the contrast between the stone and its veining pattern, natural stone can come in a rainbow of colors that would look amazing in your home as a renovation or as part of new construction.

Here are five of the Marble Granite World team’s favorite color combinations. Can you envision them in your kitchen, bathroom, or anywhere else you need a gorgeous stone countertop?

1. Green Onyx

Green Onyx

Onyx is a beautiful stone with a natural translucency that looks incredible when backlit. The warm red and yellow tones of onyx mix beautifully with green to create a color combination that brings rustic, natural charm into your home. This stone would be perfect in a Tuscan-styled kitchen, a farmhouse aesthetic, or anywhere you want to bring warmth into your space.

2. Forest Black Granite

Granite is famous for its veining, and the stark black-and-white look is sleek and sophisticated. It feels right at home in both classic and modern design.

It’s durable enough for high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms, and can even be used in outdoor designs if you want to make a statement. While granite requires periodic sealing, the stone’s timeless appeal is undeniable.

3. Silver Travertine

Travertine is an exotic stone that is popular with homeowners for its layered look. Every piece of travertine is banded with multicolored stripes, giving each travertine countertop a look that’s all it’s own. With silver travertine, rich cream and bright white streak across a background of blue, silver, and gray that’s flecked with earth tones of various colors.

This travertine pattern is reminiscent of oceanic waves or a canyon landscape; it’s an inspiring look that would feel right at home in a cool-toned kitchen or bathroom design.

4. Blue Star Marble

Marble has been renowned for its beauty for thousands of years. From pure white marble to highly patterned breccia, marble’s stately appearance and natural luminosity have made it beloved wherever it can be found. But marble doesn’t have to be white or gray, as demonstrated here by Blue Star Marble. Here, gray and silver marble is shot through with icy blue and white, a winning color combination.

5. Azure Quartzite

Quartzite is one of the most durable natural stones, and it comes in a stunning array of colors. The look of pale blue shot through with rich gold is bold and dramatic. The contrast between the soft background color and the strong gold veining makes a statement and ensures that your countertop will make an unforgettably good impression.
