How to Pair White Kitchen Cabinets With White Countertops

As a homeowner, you may be wondering what color your kitchen cabinets should be. Should they match the countertops? Or should they contrast them? If you’re looking to create a cohesive look in your home, it’s best to go with the first option. White is always an option because it will match just about any other color and there are many ways that this can work for you.



Are you considering a white kitchen renovation? You’re in good company! A white kitchen is classic, timeless, and always in style. Read on for tips on how to pair white kitchen cabinets with white countertops!

Benefits of White Kitchens

There is something about white kitchens that seem to say “clean.” Perhaps it’s the blank canvas they present: an energetic white space with a tabula rasa upon which we can boldly paint our culinary endeavors or leave them as untouched as we wish. Cleaning up after cooking — whether for hours with four pots on the stove, or for 30 minutes stir-frying one dish — can be such a relief in this refreshing shade of white. And white cabinets are the perfect way to give your kitchen that airy feeling.

When paired with white countertops, the look is even more pristine and sleek. You may think that a white kitchen might be too stark or boring, but when done right it can be elegant and timeless. So if you’re considering renovating your kitchen, white cabinets and white countertops should definitely be at the top of your list.

Use Different Shades of White

Yes, white comes in a variety of different shades. Mix up your decor with the right shades of white as this will help avoid a sterile look and give you more space to work in! Choose three or four different colors for maximum effect, then place them on varying materials around the kitchen area – it’s guaranteed not only interesting but also stylish too. Consider using a white with a bit of warmth, like antique white or off-white. If you’re going for a modern look, try pure white or stark white.


If your kitchen feels a little too bland, try adding pops of color. You can do this by painting the walls a different color or adding colorful accessories.

Best Countertop Materials With White Kitchen Cabinets

Here are our recommendations for countertop materials:


  • The laminate countertops are an affordable choice for those on a tight budget. They offer bright and light surfaces that won’t break your bank! Laminate is easy to clean with a simple wipe down, but be careful as they can scratch and scuff.


  • What makes granite countertops so special is not just the beauty of its finish, but also what can be found within. There are often small flecks or patterns that vary between each piece creating an individual look for your kitchen counters and backsplashes. In addition to their natural appeal, these variations make them perfect as decorative stones because they match any design style without being overpowering.


  • White marble is an exceptionally beautiful stone and is seen as a luxury. It also comes with a high price tag, plus considerably more maintenance. The cost can be prohibitive for some people considering how much care they’ll need to give this material in order not to have stains or etching show up.


  • Acrylic countertops are a great and affordable choice when you want to design a kitchen that is smooth and seamless. They are also less of a hustle to clean and maintain, but they can scratch more easily.

  • Wood for countertops is a natural choice to complement white kitchen cabinets. The warmth and beauty of wood will create a welcoming look in your kitchen.
    Wood is also a durable material that can withstand the wear and tear of everyday use. It’s easy to clean and care for, making it a practical choice for busy households. Plus, wood is a natural renewable resource, so you can feel good about choosing this sustainable option.


  • Quartz countertops are an excellent choice for those who want their kitchen to have a modern and sleek design. They’re strong, easy to clean with no sealing needed or any other maintenance required besides occasional wiping down for spills ( quartz is known as scratch-resistant) and won’t lose their color over time.


Final Thoughts

When it comes to white kitchens, the options are endless. With a little bit of creativity, you can create a beautiful and unique space that you’ll love coming home to every day. If you need more help with your kitchen design, we’re here for you!
