Design is in the Details: White Countertops

I have granite countertops in my home that are great for maintenance, but aren’t the prettiest…they remind me of camouflage (you can see a peek here).  And, they are hard to clean because they act like camouflage and i can’t see crumbs and food on my counters, which drives me crazy.  So, I dream of having counters like the white ones in the Room of the Week.  The white countertops match the wall color and the cabinets, which helps everything fade away to make the views out the windows the real stars of this space.

Your countertops take up a lot of visual space in your room, so whatever you pick to use as the surface will be a lot of pattern in the room.  White countertops are a good option if your cabinets are white and you would prefer that your countertops fade away.

Here are a few white countertop options.  The man-made products have less pattern in them than the natural products, obviously.

Here are some other examples of kitchens with white cabinets and white countertops.  You can see that white countertops work with any kitchen style.

Do you like white countertops?  If you have white countertops will you share what you like/dislike about them?

  1. I love marble countertops and am considering them in our kitchen when that comes around. I’m not a big fan of granite either but they are definitely better than the beige formica in my kitchen at the moment! I also like that mix of white (not sure what it is) and wood countertops in #8.

    • i love a good mix of countertops too! granite countertops definitely feel a step up from formica, especially in the maintenance department, and there are many varieties of granite that aren’t so patterned and could be a great alternative to marble. thanks for commenting!
