15 Amazing Absolute Black Granite Options for Your Kitchen
If you're looking for a great look for your kitchen then these absolute black granite countertops should be the first thing on your list.
The perfect absolute black granite countertops can make your entire kitchen something unique and suited perfectly to you and your interests. Of course, it doesn’t just have to be these specific counters for your house. With just one slab of granite or other stone or even a single piece of butcher block, you can show everyone who enters your home just what your style truly is.
The key is making sure you look at all of your options before you jump on anything in particular, but remember, you’re going to be living with it for a decent amount of time. You want something that you will enjoy for longer than the season. Remember, a slab of granite or stone or anything at all that you put on your counters is going to be there a whole lot longer than that paint on the walls (or most likely).
The Cost of Absolute Black Granite
Absolute black granite is actually one of the less expensive versions of granite that you’re going to find as it generally comes to about $18-$22 per square foot. When you compare this to other types of granite, which could cost upwards of $50-$100 per square foot, it’s practically a steal and it’s going to look great at the same time.
The cost is going to be a little bit higher once you get someone out there to put the slab in for you and finish everything, but you’re still looking at around $40 per square foot for the entire job. That’s definitely going to help you save a little but still get a look that doesn’t let people know in the least. They’ll definitely think you spent a whole lot on it.
The Look of Absolute Black Granite
So what is it going to look like to have this beautiful granite on your countertops? Well you’re going to get exactly what you’re probably thinking when someone says ‘absolute black.’ The countertops are going to be completely black with possibly a few little flecks in them that will help to reflect the light and give them a shimmery appearance.
The slab will generally be glossy on the top to help reflect the light and give you a bit more shine without the silvery streaks that some other types of granite will have. You’re also going to see plenty of options when it comes to the edging of your granite countertops as well.
You can choose traditional rounded or square cut edges or waterfall options and special cuts. It’s going to depend on the specific look you’re going for in your kitchen and a little on the type of cupboards and the money that you want to spend. But the opportunities are definitely going to be endless.
Take a look at each of these options and you’ll definitely see just what you can get yourself into when you choose absolute black granite countertops for your kitchen. Whether you decide to go with a mix of dark and light or a full-on dark theme, you’re going to see a range of different choices with these countertops to make anyone who enters your house jealous.
