White Countertops: Picking The Right Material

White countertops are the gleaming jewel of many kitchen designs. White countertops make a beautiful topper for an all-white kitchen, the gleaming surface of a black-and-white kitchen, or a statement expanse in a more complex palette. White countertops can give any kitchen a sense of pristine cleanliness and classic elegance. From warm traditional kitchens to cozy minimalist post-modern kitchen designs, just choosing the color of your countertop is only the beginning.

Your white countertop is defined by choosing a suitable material. The color, grain, and stone type will determine the total impression your white countertops provide to the kitchen design. Refined elegance, warm hominess, understated power, and subtle energy create the spectrum of visual appeal that a white countertop can have.

Find a Good Fit

What white countertop material is the right fit for your kitchen design? This is a matter of weighing appearance, maintenance, texture, and price. You may be looking for a white countertop with a gleaming, flawless surface or an elegantly veined countertop. You may need a white countertop that is non-porous and low-maintenance for high durability or ready to take gentle care of a natural stone counter.

The three leading white countertop materials are granite, quartz, and porcelain. Let’s take an in-depth look at how to pick the right material for your white kitchen countertop.

Countertop Materials To Get To Know

Countertop materials come in natural and manufactured slabs. Natural stone countertops are made from slabs quarried from all over the world. Artificial Manufactured stone countertops create a beautiful surface from crafted materials like pressed quartz or smooth porcelain.

White Granite Countertops

Not everyone knows you can find some beautifully natural white granite countertops. White granite comes with a natural grain that tends toward a gray speckle or confetti appearance across your countertop surface. Natural white marble granite looks like white stone sliced straight out of the pale mountainside and contains multi-directional veining. When incorporated into your kitchen design, white granite offers a soft earthy appearance and a rich texture that adds depth to the kitchen’s palette of finishes. Granite is highly durable, heat resistant, and stain resistant when resealed every two to five years. but is porous like most natural stones. You will need to reseal your white granite countertops every two to five years.


White Quartz Countertops Unique Calacatta

White Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops are extremely popular for white kitchens for their brilliant clarity and handpicked appearance. Quartz is a manufactured slab with 90-95% natural quartz resin cured into a slab with select pigments and particulates to create the desired grain. White quartz can achieve a more brilliant white than granite, and you can choose the color, style, boldness, and flow of your white countertop grain veining.

Quartz is non-porous and does not need to be sealed, so it is highly resistant to stains, scratches, and moisture. Quartz countertops are highly durable and heat-resistant but not heat-proof.


Whisper Glossy White Porcelain Countertops

Porcelain countertops are crafted from fine, pale clay. Porcelain is uniquely beautiful as a white countertop with a warm, creamy texture to the brilliant color. White porcelain countertops can be perfectly white or blended with flowing grains of pigment in the clay before each countertop piece is baked to pristine hardness.


White porcelain countertops are non-porous and the most heat-resistant of all countertop types, but it is still recommended to use a trivet. Porcelain is an interesting and lighter-weight alternative to white quartz and granite. Popular in Europe, porcelain is increasingly used in the States and is a trending choice for a sleek modern look.

Choosing the right white countertop for your kitchen design depends on care, aesthetics, texture, and weight. We have found that the hottest choices are Calacatta and Carrara grain in gentle golds or soft grays tracing through creamy white quartz or porcelain.
