Hi, I really like your connection between Solarius Granite countertop, light travertine and cherry cabinets. You will get an express contrast which will give a personality to your kitchen. Please see our project with such a design: http://www.Marmidicarrara.com
/material...
 . Also I'm leaning towards Giallo Ornamental Stone and New Venetian Gold, find the examples in the attachments. The best way to be sure about your countertop is to go and see how do the whole slabs look like and take some samples to your home in order to compare with your cabintes and backsplash.

    I have just had Bucak light walnut travertine (large Versailles pattern) installed in my kitchen.  Will the Solarius granite counter be too boring?  My cabinets are natural cherry but with 10 years of age they have darkened a bit.

    The stone installed in that kitchen as the countertop is a lighter batch of Solarius. In regard to the backsplash tile, unfortunately we do not have information on the name of the tile used here. We only have information on the countertop that we fabricated and installed.

    in photo 5 of 6 above what is the backsplash color and type of stone?

    That's a wonderful idea Jocelyn. Tell your architect -- good job! I recommend the weather gray cabinet shade to offset and contrast the color tones in the beautiful Solarius granite. This will in-turn make the countertop the focal point of your kitchen design!

  • Jocelyn 07:33PM, Jul 24 2012

    hello we are going with solaris countertops in kitchen w cedermos classic forge gold tile for floor an architect suggested we go with a sunbleached or weather gray cabinets to contrast with one another _ plz give opinion thanks

    Absolutely, go for it! A very rich and warm combination. 

  • Preetham05 08:36PM, May 6 2012

    We have oak honey cabinets. Will Solarius granite go with oak honey cabinets?

    I love Derek’s paint suggestions. For flooring, check out Mocca and Tracia in either 12” or 18”. Hardwood would also look great. For backsplash, the classic tumbled travertine with accent tiles would finish off the design wonderfully. Let me know what you think so far!

    For the floor tile, I recommend African Slate 18" Porcelain tile in a Latte shade. I've attached a photo for your reference. In regard to the wall color, a warm but soft and neutral tone that would work nicely is Benjamin Moore Linen White or Barely Beige.

    I think a honey onyx mosaic would compliment the Solarius granite nicely, but it's too much of a match and make make the design too busy. My recommendation is a Mirabelle Collection smoky brown glass tile in a brick pattern. I've attached a photo for your reference. 

  • tboll3 10:12PM, Apr 13 2012

    Forgot to mention, for backsplace, I like natural stone and just saw honey onxy and liked that too but not sure it would be too much going on????

  • tboll3 10:10PM, Apr 13 2012

    Hi, I'm thinking of using solaris for my new white kitchen cabinets.  Can you recommend backsplace and floor tile?  I like the look of slate and thinking of going porcelain in a tan/brown hue???  Really having a hard time here.  Also my house is a fairly traditional new england styled home...what do you think?  Any other suggestions for countertop would be welcomed as well..ALSO, suggestions for paint color..I'm not good at this!

    Sounds like the Solarius will bring warmth and a rich depth to your kitchen design by creating an efficient contrast against your white cabinetry and light subway backsplash. Go for it! We have Solarius as the countertop in our office and it's gorgeous.

  • Huettfarms 10:19PM, Mar 25 2012

    Iam trying to keep my white subways tiles....we are contemplating painting our medium stain Ash cabinets a soft white.....love these pictures of Solarius...will it work?  We also have a white sink and oiled rubbed bronze faucet as in your pictures.

    The Solarius is much richer and more interesting than the classic but consistent grained NVG. We have the Solarius installed in our office, and it looks stunning, so I am leaning toward this choice.

  • Rahanson 08:59PM, Mar 15 2012

    We are looking at solarius (a slab with a little more black in its veins) along with some medium oak cabinets.  Any thoughts?  Out backup plan is NVG.  The slabs look beautiful.

    03:44PM, Oct 14 2011 If you're talking about the "Work Examples" shown in this page in the box under the description of the stone, then all of those stones are Solarius. Hope this helps.

    03:43PM, Oct 14 2011 We may have Solarius that is long enough, my database tells me we have slabs that fit this size requirement at our Ridgefield Park, NJ facility. Please be aware that we do not sell by the slab, but fabricate the slabs into countertops.
  • Pat 03:34PM, Oct 14 2011 In your gallery of photos there is one photo of cherry and granite that appears to be solarius or saint cecilia?  It is in the slide show.  What is the name of the granite used? Thanks, Pat

    12:37PM, Aug 16 2011 I'd use a rich and warm color such as Gold Antique, New Colonial Dream, or Sanguine C. Make sure to look at the slabs in-person as my suggestions have plenty of movement with a lot of variation between the stones. Good luck!

    12:38PM, Jul 20 2011 I'd use the Madura Gold as it's a bit more uniform than the Solarius, and will be easier on the eyes. I agree with Kinga's suggestion of BM "Lighthouse Landing" for the wall color, that would be perfect!

For paint color, try something neutral to keep the focus on your stone like Benjamin Moore’s “Fresh Air” or “Lighthouse Landing”.
  • Morfeo 09:05PM, Jul 17 2011 We're putting cherry vanities in master bath. Thinking of Solarius or madura gold for tub deck and counters with dark floor tiles, glass shower with light colored wall tiles. Any thoughts? Paint color? Do you ship to WNY

    02:31PM, Jul 11 2011 The tile in the picture looks like a ceramic that mimics the look of natural stone, in a subway brick pattern. My recommendation is actual natural stone, such as the Oyster Mix Flamed travertine tile. I've attached a picture.

    09:55PM, Jul 8 2011 Unfortunately, we do not have any information regarding tiles used in the project just the stone itself. You should try a ceramic tile that resembles a natural stone for a sleek, natural feel to the space (see first 2 attachments). Other suggestion would be tumbled Bottocino marble with accent tiles.
  • Alex 09:59AM, Jul 8 2011 With Cherry Cabinets and the Solaris Granite, what backsplash was used in the picture of the kitchen in your example?  It is beautiful. Do you have another suggestion as well?
  • eileen 09:23PM, Apr 2 2011 i was looking at a solarius slab, which was the reason i purichased new cabinets. unfortunately, the solarus i loved was the light one similar to your office picture. i could only find the solarius similar to the slab posted on your site. i just purchased hazelnut maple cabinets with chocolate glaze. haven't received them yet. the kitchen is small. 11 x 10. it is a fairly light kitchen. i was thinking about a very light porcelain floor with a light stone look backsplash. can you give me your opinion on the solarius with those cabinets, and any suggestion for floor and backsplash.

  • Joni Fregosi 07:55PM, Jun 30 2010 I am remodeling master bath and have maple cabinets in a chestnut stain with a chocolate glaze. The floor is done in an 18 X 18 travertine (noche) on a diagonal with a 4 in gold travertine insert. The shower is also done in travertine 18 x 18 56 inches high then bordered with a gold pencil above and below the listello (a fluer de lei design) with a 6x6 travertine above that. The travertine is very neutral and felt I needed a nice moving granite to give the bathroom some pop. Do you think the Solarius would go well or do you suggest something else. My sinks are a polished vessel oval travertine with rubbed oil bronze faucets. Need advice as my counter in 115 inches in length and want to make a wise choice. Another thought was Madura gold but I thought it was too subtle. with 4 in gold inset. The shower is
  • Maureen 09:36AM, May 13 2010 Thx - Just curious why not the solarius that's more golden/yellow? The coffee glaze tones down the honey maple color. Also is Solarius considered a higher end color? What price category. I appreciate all your help.
  • Maureen 09:48AM, May 11 2010 Thx - how about the solarius that's not as dark - a "whiter one". I'm afraid to go dark. Have you heard of Golden Kaiman(sp)-will this work - do you have it?? or something similar? I don't want a granite that everybody else has i.e. st cecilia, giallo's etc
  • Maureen 08:34AM, May 11 2010 How would this lighter solarius go with honey maple caninets with a coffee glaze & beige tile w/faint brown lines? Have you ever heard of Golden Kaiman(sp)? Do you have something similar? Thx I need a granite not too light but not too dark (with movement)for my smaller kitchen with low level of natural light. Thx

  • Patty 04:42PM, Feb 5 2010 Solarius comes in two "tones" I guess? One a little darker? I'm thinking about putting on stark white cabinets and a flat black island. More worried about the center stage island looking the best with the granite, and I think this will look fabulous with the black...not so sure it is dark enough for the white?? Any other suggestions?
  • Chris Schuler 02:59PM, Aug 21 2009 I like the vein pattern and colors. My cabinets are natural hickory and the floor is a chocolate brown. Is Solarius a good match or should I look at darker vein patterns? I am also looking at Oro Fantastico and Desert River. Thanks.
