White granite countertops are similar to any granite surface in that they are luxurious and durable. If you are seeking a neutral-toned countertop, but don't necessarily need stark white, then consider a beige granite countertop. Beige countertops incorporate various shades of white and brown to give it a versatility that works well in a number of kitchen designs.

Light granite countertops are also ideal for giving a smaller kitchen area a brighter look. The fresh color makes a room feel open and airy, providing a welcome atmosphere. If your cabinetry is dark, then you might consider white granite countertops so that the room doesn't get the "stuffy" feeling that could come from having too many dark tones in the color palette.

While white granite is certainly a classic countertop, the surface can also work well in a modern kitchen design. Consider pairing it with dark wood cabinets to establish a contemporary theme.

Be sure to consider how you will be using the countertops when choosing your granite. If you will be spending a lot of time with food preparation and entertaining guests, then you may want to choose a light granite countertop that has a pattern in order to hide some of the inevitable marks that will result from normal wear and tear.
