How To Update a Kitchen with Brown Granite Countertops

While dated granite countertops can certainly be a buzzkill when it comes to designing your dream kitchen, they aren’t entirely a lost cause.

Today, I'm sharing the best ways to update a kitchen with brown countertops when new countertops are simply not an option.

Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets

Whichever backsplash material you decide on, try to lean a bit more minimal and modern as this will offset the often busy, dated look of your old granite counters.
