Are you trying to figure out whether or not black galaxy granite fits in your kitchen or bathroom countertop remodeling budget? Well, here’s the scoop, the price per square foot for black galaxy granite averages between $80 to $90 per square foot installed. Which falls right in the same range as some of the other popular calm black granite colors such as absolute black and black impala. With these colors all setting you back roughly the same amount, what are the key differences?
Black Galaxy vs Absolute Black & Black Impala
This threesome of black granites are all generally of the quiet and sleek variety, meaning they don’t an abundance of veining. However you will notice that black galaxy has metallic copper, silver or gold flecking, which in my opinion is especially beautiful, it adds a distinct shimmer that really gives it some character. Absolute black is most commonly the blackest of the bunch with the least amount of white and grey specks. Then there is black impala, the lightest granite of the trio, it has a lot more white and grey mixed into it, which obviously varies from slab to slab. They all make great choices, it just boils down to which shade is going to complement your wall, floor, and cabinetry choices the best.
Cabinets That Correlate
It’s important to find a cabinet color that correlates well with your black galaxy if that’s the path you’ve chosen to go with for your kitchen countertop or bathroom vanity. You can 99 percent of the time rule out black cabinets, surprisingly though, dark wooden cabinets of the cherry variety have become a very common match for this dark granite. Even if you go with a dark countertop and moderately dark cabinetry you still have plenty to work with when it comes to brightening up the rest of the room. Utilizing lighter colors for your hardwood flooring, walls, and backslashes can give you the balance you need to warm up the atmosphere of your space if you so choose to go this route.
