    Granite comes in a variety of colors and styles that you can use in your home and gardern, which makes it a popular choice in many different areas. Though using granite in different places can create an elegant look, using different granite in the same area requires looking at all the colors in each piece of granite to ensure that the colors complement each other. However, if you take the time to choose carefully, you can mix granite colors to create the design you want.

    1 Pick up several samples of different colors and types of granite at a granite yard or home improvement store. Choose a variety of granite colors and styles that appeal to your eye. The more samples you collect, the more likely you are to find a mix of granites that enhance each other.

    2.Choose your favorite granite for the most predominate place. For example, if you are going to have a granite counter top and back splash, put your favorite granite option on the counter top. you can consider shanxi black, black galaxy ,if you like blacks

    3 Compare other samples to your favorite color of granite, and eliminate granite samples that are not in the same style as your first choice. For example, if the granite you chose first is speckled with a glossy finished, your other granite choices should have those same elements.

    4 Pick samples that are in the same color family as your favorite piece. For example, if your first choice in granite is tan, then creams and browns are good choices for your secondary granite. If a sample is not in the same color family, consider another option.

    5 Check the undertones of your second choice of granite to make sure they don’t conflict with the undertones in your primary granite choice. Undertones are the soft colors, often speckles, that change the way a more predominate color appears.

    6 Narrow your selections to a few, and then choose your favorite.
