Are White Kitchen Worktops a Good Idea?

We’re often asked, ‘are white worktops practical?’

It’s a sensible question. After all, we’re cautious about white in our day-to-day lives. It’s a stain haven for everything from clothes and trainers to cushions and cars!

But here’s the good news; white worktops don’t play by these rules.

White Worktops are Versatile

In a hardwearing and low maintenance material like quartz or granite, white worktops are robust, easy to clean and can stay looking fresh. This, in turn, gives your kitchen that ‘new kitchen glow’ for years down the line.

White is a versatile colour that goes with everything, so whether you’re interested in a navy blue shaker or a grey handleless gloss kitchen, a white worktop will fit seamlessly with your design.

Statement White Worktops

White certainly doesn’t have to mean boring. You may be surprised to know that there’s a whole variety of white worktops available in different shades, materials and thicknesses. Some showstopping worktops come with a grain of grey, a veined marble effect, or even some glittery sparkle!

There’s something for everyone.

Here are a few of our favourite white worktop combinations to get you inspired…

White Worktop with Blue Furniture – Showcased by Laura Ashley

White and blue is a match made in kitchen heaven, and Laura Ashley knows this better than anyone! Light or dark, the results are the same – classic and charming!

Minimalist style is trendy right now, and the combination of light grey cabinets with white worktops achieves this look perfectly. It’s a great look for kitchens that don’t benefit from much natural light, and can also be used to create detail and personality.

White Worktops with Wood

We love this wooden splashback below; it’s an earthy look that proves our point – white goes with everything!

White Worktops with Green Kitchens

Below is a kitchen that is sure to have your dinner guests green with envy (sorry, that’s just too obvious)! It’s the perfect balance between contemporary and classic, and it’s beautifully bold. These worktops are a simple addition to a bold kitchen to avoid overstepping the mark.

This kitchen is the new Milano Harvard by Symphony.
