White Granite Kitchen Countertops

White granite countertops offer a more affordable — but equally durable and elegant — alternative to marble.

Granite countertops are a great way to add value and patina to any home—but deciding on a color palette that's best for your kitchen can seem overwhelming.

For homeowners who love the luxurious, clean-lined look of always-attractive white marble, white granite kitchen countertops offer a more affordable, but equally durable and elegant alternative. (They'll likely require less maintenance than marble, too.)

While the composition of granite makes it nearly impossible to achieve what many refer to as a "pure" white, the beauty of white granite lies in its striations, flecks and variations, which also add character and interest to the countertop surface.

White granite countertops also have a very complementary nature. White goes well with a wide array of colors, whether you're looking for a striking contrast, like black-and-white, or a more subtle flow between white counters and a neutral colored cabinetry base. In addition, white is always in style, and it has a clean and sophisticated look.
