“SILVER PEARL IS THE NEW BLACK FOR THE KITCHEN”
It has become a popular select for kitchen countertops due to its blue/grey background. It is dark but has light color marks in its design and is the perfect choice for small kitchens.
Like other natural stones, no two slabs of Silver Pearl granite are accurately similar. Because of this uniqueness that granite remains one of the leading countertop materials, and while the U-shape layout is often considered traditional, the countertops and appliances give it a modern feel. The Silver Pearl granite brings high-end style to this traditional design.
It is best when paired with lighter cabinets. This design amalgamation gives the kitchen a simplified and modern look by binding in the light and dark elements smoothly, and the granite itself is noticeable and exciting enough to steal the show. Earth tones are fused into the space with the wood flooring adding another level of warmth.
The silver streaks spread across the surface of the granite are the perfect accent for stainless steel appliances. The two elements complement each other with neither one entirely stealing the show.

The material has a low to moderate absorption rate.
Always seal this material prior to use.
To reduce the appearance of stains, always wipe up spills immediately. Oil and highly-pigmented liquids can penetrate and stain the stone and may need poultice to remove the stain.
