Hi, I think that this is a really good idea to go with Blue Pearl and white cabinets. You can also think about stainless steel decoration. Regarding to the paint color I would recommend you to go with some warm and light grey. Please see the attachment with colours of Sherwin Williams.

    The difference is in the prominence of the blue colored metallic flecks. The GT is a premium version of the Blue Pearl -- it's more expensive. It's hard to tell from photos, it's best to see and compare the slabs in-person to really see the difference in color tone.

    Hello. The last one in the attachments above is called Daltile Franciscan Slate Desert Crema. In regard to wall color, I recommend to consider Benjamin Moore series Snow White, Palest Pistachio, and Gray Lake. For a little more color, Linen White or Navajo White are appropriate as well in terms of light neutrals. Hope this helps!

  • KK 08:23PM, Nov 27 2012

    Thank you Derek!  I like the last tile series as it has more blues and grays in it (I'm not a fan of yellow).  Is this the Alfagres series?  The contrast in the picture seems a little stark so think I'll go with an Antique white on the cabinets.  What wall color would you recommend?

    Hello. Blue Pearl countertops is a great and elegant choice against a light cabinet. I've attached a photo of the combination for your reference. Just antique white or a stark white cabinet is the best, as this will give a contemporary touch against the granite you're picking. The Calacatta marble is also an appropriate decision as the veins in this marble tile will pick-up the granite nicely. In regard to flooring, you don't have to use wood, but rather a porcelain tile can be appropriate in a warm shade. For example, I recommend to consider Daltile Franciscan Slate Desert Crema or perhaps Daltile Fidenza Bianco tiles, or maybe Alfagres series Shell tile for a little more color. Lastly, black wrought iron lighting fixtures is a wonderful idea and will complement your set-up accordingly. 

  • KK 03:10AM, Nov 26 2012

    Also am thinking about black wrought iron lighting fixtures to pull in the black in appliances and granite.  Thanks so much for your help.

    We're completely remodeling a kitchen in a 1925 French eclectic style house and trying to maintain a nod to the age of the house, however I've fallen in love with Blue Pearl granite for the countertops.  Would like to have white cabinets (suggestions on color?) and either a carrara or calacatta marble rectangular tile brick pattern backsplash, with stainless or white appliances.  I'm struggling with what to do for the floor and wall color though.  Don't really want wood in the kitchen but feel the room needs warmth.  Would stainless faucets and sink and bronze cabinet pulls pulling in a darker floor work?  Any suggestions on flooring and wall colors?  Thank you!

    A glass backsplash to go against the elegant Blue Pearl granite would not be overwhelming, but rather an excellent complement. My suggestions for you to consider are Aliexpress Silver Glass and Mirabelle Collection blue, grey, brown glass in a brick pattern. I've attached photos of my suggestions for your easy reference.

    I'm re-doing my kitchen which is fairly small, I'm in a condo.  I have white cabinets now and am tired of them so I'm going with a light cherry.  I also have decided on blue pearl GT for the counter and am struggling with the backsplash.  I want it to be light to brighten things up a bit and like some of the glass that I've seen.  I was wondering if you think doing a whole whole in the glass would be too much, all and all it will be about 22 sq ft.  One side is smaller because its the side with the refrigerator, stove and microwave.

    Hello Jodi. The Blue Pearl SP is the less expensive (Double Silver) of the two because it's reflective flecks are more metallic colored. The GT variety has flecks that are more prominently blue. The blue shade in granite is rate therefore it's more expensive (Super Premium). Both of them are available in our South Plainfield yard. Come take a look at the full slabs and we will give you free samples to take home with you! Hope this helps. 

  • Jodi 12:32AM, Sep 2 2012

    Can you tell me the difference between Blue pEarl GT and Blue Pearl SP?  Also, what are the price points for both (double silver, single silver, etc)?  Are they both available through your South Plainfield location?

    We have white cabinets and blue corian countertops.  Looking for an update to Kitchen and thinking of Blue Pearl GT for countertops and island.  We have neutral ceramic tiles on floor.  Any suggestions for a glass mosiac tiles or any other glass tiles?

    My recommendations for you to consider for the island are: Azul Aran, Bianco Antico, Black Thunder, Blue Barracuda. Hope this helps!

    I am building a pool house with bluestone floors and Benjamin Moore Dove White cabinetry throughout.  The fixtures are chrome but the feeling is a bit rustic with silver travertine and river rock in the shower.  My furnishings will be in blues, greys and creams with some bronze/black accents.

    I was thinking of using Blue Pearl for a small countertop in the bathroom (with a white sink).  The kitchenette has a 9 foot island and I was thinking of something with contrast to the White Dove cabinetry.  I would prefer something with some movement or veins (rather than speckles) and was considering blues, blacks or grays.

    The bluestone floor, being a natural product has some color variation, but is essentally grey.

    Any thoughts?

    03:44PM, Jan 12 2012 My recommendation is an Azul Macauba marble mosaic for a darker choice that will compliment your Blue Pearl counters closely. For a lighter option with accents to pick up the metallic flecks, take a look at Thassos marble with Blue Celeste inserts. Good luck!

    09:46PM, Jan 10 2012 For a timeless and classic choice, I would suggest a honed White Carrara or Calcatta in subway style. For a modern and fun look, SomerTile Chromium Subway Stainless Steel and Porcelain Mosaic Tile or Aliexpress Silver Glass would finish off the design wonderfully. Let me know what you think!
  • Felicefarran 09:15PM, Jan 10 2012 I have natural maple cabinets and blue pearl gt countertops.  I would like to add a subway glass backsplash.  What would you suggest?

    08:38PM, Nov 17 2011 For an estimate, please contact our sales office with the actual measurements that you require. We seal the granite upon installation, and it's your job to reseal the stone once a year to keep it stain resistant. Sealing is very easy and a do-it-yourself process. Just apply the sealer, leave it on for half an hour to absorb, and wipe off any excess. Hope this helps.
  • Blab52nd 12:41AM, Nov 16 2011 what is average cost of blue pear l granite appx 50 sq foot and ogee corners.
    how do i know if granite is sealed.
  • Marmi di Carrara 06:01PM, Jun 3 2011 You can match black with anything making it the easier choice. But if you really like Emerald Pearl or Blue Pearl than i would say stick with your gut. Keep the backsplash simple and neutral.
  • Sarah 11:46PM, Jun 2 2011 We are doing a complete kitchen reno and plan flat faced natural cherry cabinets and natural maple floors. I was thinking of emerald pearl for counters but the tile guy said it is hard to find tile for backsplashes that will go with the green granite. I prefer the sparkly granite. Would black be better?
  • Ann 09:38PM, May 14 2010 What do you mean by base stone colors? Would those color samples be useful in coordinating paint colors
  • jack fisher 08:13PM, Mar 17 2008 Could you please tell me how many grades of blue pearl gt-there are?
