How to Make Red Granite Countertops Work

Red granite countertops are not the most popular choice here in the Middle Tennessee area, but that’s only because few people have been exposed to the incredible designs that red granite countertops can offer.

Here are three kitchen designs that can work with red granite countertops in any home around the Middle Tennessee region.

Country kitchens with red granite countertops

Using red and white is a standard in the country kitchen styles of old Middle Tennessee. This red is used more often as an accent, or isolated on the kitchen island. You can, however, seriously amp up your red country kitchen with red granite countertops.

You can go a number of directions with this:

  • red granite countertops, red backsplash, white walls and cabinets
  • red granite countertop, one red wall, white cabinets
  • red granite countertops, wood floors, white cabinet frames with red doors, white walls

The design options are limitless, and can still fit a traditional country kitchen theme of the Middle Tennessee area.

Retro kitchen with red granite countertops

1950s hot rod your kitchen with lots of red! The 1950s loved color, and so can you. Try this design idea out:

  • red granite countertops, light wood floors, white cabinets, pale blue walls

This classic retro kitchen design is made all the more eye catching thanks to the red kitchen countertops that you have installed. We’ve seen a few kitchens in Middle Tennessee pull this off and you’re free to add your own little twist to it.

A fall palette of colors with red granite countertops

Fall and red granite countertops go together perfectly as the red of the countertop is more of a natural rusty red than a bright one. Working with the reds, oranges and yellows of fall you can create an incredible kitchen. Given how much people in Middle Tennessee love fall, after a hot summer, this could be a perfect choice.

Try out these color schemes:

  • red granite countertops, off-white to yellow cabinets, light brown backsplash
  • red granite countertops, off-white backsplash, rusty red cabinets

To complete either of these looks use a medium toned floor that mimics the dirt of the outdoors exposed after a harvest in the Middle Tennessee area, and neutrally colored stainless steel appliances.
