White Countertops in Milwaukee are available in a variety of styles and colors and are quite versatile when it comes to home decor, whether you want to shop for a countertop that matches your kitchen’s style or design. As always, decor is all about personal preference, and there are no right or wrong answers, but here are some white kitchen countertops ideas we thought would be of interest to you.
Keep your white countertops scheme simple
When you have white slabs for your new kitchen countertops, you likely want them to be the centerpiece of your kitchen. You’re going to get the best results by keeping your pattern and veining schemes relatively simple. It’s a bit like being a painter in a three-dimensional space: Using every color in the box is great for a children’s book, but you generally want to choose your color range and stick to it.
Again, decor is all about personal preference. The most important thing is that you like the way your home looks with white kitchen countertops.
White Marbled Granite kitchen countertops
Marbled granite looks just as the name suggests — like marble, it has a smooth transition between color and texture that runs throughout the stone. With this pattern, a white-color countertop can have a high-end feel similar to real white marble.
Two-Tone features with white countertops
Nothing modernizes a kitchen like two-tone features such as the kitchen island, and of course countertops. This modern farmhouse kitchen design can pair a butcher block topped island with white kitchen countertops
Design ideas for your white kitchen countertops
If your home has an open plan, make sure that your white countertops work with the other finishes, colors and fabrics within the same open space. Always be sure to look at stone samples in the actual kitchen itself. As with paint, light can cause the color of white surfaces to vary greatly, so you’ll want to look at it in its intended environment
The biggest mistake is sacrificing a surface you love because you’re afraid it won’t last. Natural and engineered countertops perform, and you should feel okay using white kitchen countertops made from any of these materials, even though marks might develop over time. For people who know they won’t enjoy anything less than a bulletproof surface, then an engineered or well-polished and sealed natural countertop is recommended.
Order your new white kitchen countertops after the cabinets are in
Measure your cabinet installation base to determine your countertop dimensions—don’t use the ones on your plans. The row of cabinets may have a different dimension after installation due to out-of-square walls. Place a carpenter’s square in the corner over the end cabinet. The corner might be narrower than the rest of the wall because of layers of joint compound. Measure to the farthest point on the wall over the cabinets to avoid an ugly gap between the countertop and the wall after the kitchen countertops are installed. You can also consult the services of Granite Plus Milwaukee Kitchen Countertop installer, if you have minimal experience in carpentry.
You can mix different materials for your white countertops
You don’t have to use the same white material for every counter space. A durable surface such as quartz, or Caesarstone is great near the stove and sink where stains are more likely to occur. Since natural stone is more porous, use it where spills can be minimized, such as the island.
When mixing different materials for your white kitchen countertops, try to avoid materials with a lot of movement. Instead, talk to Granite Plus about a veined pair material, such as quartz.
Engineered stone offers a quarried look, minus the variable veining, with a zero-maintenance, zero-worry surface. The rock-hard quartz-and-resin slabs also come in brilliant colors that will match perfectly with your white countertops.
