How to Design a Kitchen with White Quartzite Countertops
Designers are adding a modern flare to the classic white kitchen
by working with white quartzite countertops for the beauty of the style and the benefits of this unique
natural stone surface. It is the crisp, clean charm of the style that appeals to so many homeowners, who
are always looking for new ways to recreate the look with a more modern flair. Though you may think of
décor based on this color as bland, the truth is that it is quite versatile, as it can be the foundation for a
highly customizable appearance that can easily be kept up to date over time.
Choosing the color of your white quartzite countertops
As any designer will tell you, there are a wide range of different shades of white quartzite countertops and
choosing the right one involves some thought and understanding. Consider the other elements in your
kitchen. Are your appliances white, black, stainless steel, or another shade? What type of décor do you
have? What color are your cabinets?
For example, if you are looking for a style that reflects a more casual or country décor,
then an antique white may be preferable. That said, a sheer white works well in kitchens with a vintage
White quartzite countertops have the unique ability to combine modern appeal with the nostalgia of yesterday’s
trends. If a vintage look is desired, as opposed to a modern or contemporary design, then white quartzite
countertops can be matched with vintage white appliances and, cabinetry, or furniture.
Pairing it with stainless steel will give the room a futuristic look, but without losing the warmth of the
space. Be careful to choose which pieces will match your white quartzite countertops, as a room that is too
monochromatic can look stark and dated. Instead, pick the correct white features in the kitchen and then add the
colors that you would like to stand out.
Adding color to your white quartzite countertops
Though white quartzite countertops are a great focal point to the kitchen, they can also be very useful for
making other features stand out. Because white is such a neutral, it matches all other colors, and it allows
them to pop when used in contrast with it. For example, for a fun retro look, you can combine white quartzite
countertops with bright red small appliances and kitchen accessories. Using white quartzite countertops can
also open up the opportunity to use fun colors on your cabinetry. Instead of using standard wood colors
(which also match this shade of counter), you can choose just about any color you want. For a crisp
appearance, you may decide to contrast the white color altogether and add black features to the kitchen.
Thinking ahead with white quartzite countertops
One of the best things about white quartzite countertops is that they do not limit you to your current
décor. Though they can be a statement in themselves, they are versatile in their ability to complement the
changes that go on around them. While you may decide on a retro look now, a few years down the road, you may
decide that you’d like something more contemporary. The counters will continue to match, even with the
drastic changes going on with the kitchen décor around them.
When you design with white quartzite countertops the trick is not to over think. They are a beautiful surface
and will suit just about any style you want. Simply select a shade that matches your desired décor and then
build with other colors from there.
