Imported from India, Astoria granite has a deep cream background with veins of gray and browns that resemble chocolate. It is very durable and can withstand both extreme cold and heat so it is perfect for outdoor use as well as indoor.
Astoria Granite Designer Thoughts
Astoria granite works well with dark wood cabinets, like mahogany or cherry as the dark wood of the cabinet pulls out the chocolate veins in the granite. Add a white, subway tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances for a warm look in your kitchen. Pair dark wood butcher block counters with distressed white cabinets and an Astoria backsplash for an interesting look. In your bathroom, add a round undermount white sink with the granite as well as small, multi-color subway tiles as a backsplash for an interesting combination.
