White kitchen countertops add a feeling of space to your kitchen.

Many of us are well-acquainted with the benefits of white kitchen countertops, which can be found in a variety of materials.

A bright white color makes for clean lines in the kitchen, creates the illusion of making rooms appear larger than they really are, and adds a contemporary note in an otherwise traditional kitchen.

So what are the potential drawbacks of white kitchen counters? White marble and granite kitchen countertops are prone to staining—so it's important to be proactive about cleaning up spills immediately, especially when it comes to acids and wine.

Because of their light-and-bright qualities, white marble and white granite countertops are also more susceptible to scratches. While some homeowners are of the opinion that the scratches add patina and character, perfectionists may beg to differ.

White countertops often evoke a luxurious feel, but you don't have to use marble or granite to achieve that upscale character. Materials like acrylic composites (Corian) or engineered quartz surfaces (brands like Silestone, Cambria or Dupont Zodiac) also offer attractive and durable surfaces in a wide array of white colors.
