Dark-speckled granite is on its way out of popularity. Some homeowners are ripping out their existing granite because it already has a very dated look. These patterns are busy and multicolored, with some tinge of gold often. Quartz is replacing it as the premier luxury stone countertops in many markets.
If you’re looking to keep granite specifically, though, you want to look for black or white countertops. Either gives a timeless look to your kitchen or bathroom.
