White countertops are one of the hottest trends in kitchen and bathroom design today. With the rise in popularity of all-white kitchens and chic, minimalist style, white counters give your space a sleek, light, bright and airy look. Coupled with the durable, low-maintenance nature of quartz, you can’t go wrong with white quartz countertops in your kitchen or bathroom. Here are a few of our favorite ideas for using beautiful white quartz in your next remodel.
Pure White Quartz
Whether you prefer honed or polished counters, pure white quartz is an excellent option for bringing chic style and a clean, bright aesthetic to your space. Due to their subtle differences in tone and warmth, you’ll want to see these white quartz slabs in person to make your choice. Absolute White and Denali-N are two gorgeous options.
From subtle patterns to bold veining, there are plenty of choices when it comes to white quartz countertops that look like marble. For a dramatic look, check out the branching patterns of Bianco Levanto, Bertoli and Palmeri. For a softer, more delicate marble-look style, see Arabescato Como or Arco. These quartz varieties feature the timeless quality you love about marble along with the durability and stain-resistance of quartz counters. What’s not to love?
More Quartz Patterns
If pure white or marble-look quartz isn’t what your kitchen or bathroom needs, don’t worry. You’ll find plenty of other patterns and styles to complete your white countertop design. City White Satin offers a creamy color with a subtle speckled pattern reminiscent of limestone. Frost-R channels granite with a clear crystalline pattern across an ivory backdrop. No matter what white quartz look catches your eye, it’s sure to elevate and modernize your kitchen or bathroom with trendy yet timeless style.
Backsplash Color Ideas for White Countertops
Now that you’ve chosen your favorite white quartz countertop, it’s time to complement it with a tile backsplash. When it comes to choosing the perfect backsplash tile to complement your white quartz counters, there are essentially three routes you can take:
- Contrast: The first option is to choose a color that contrasts your countertops, such as a black or other dark-colored tile. This will help both the counter and the backsplash “pop” and stand out, which can be a good way to draw the eye to them if that’s what you’d like to do. Concerto or Chymia offer bold, dark color options. If your quartz counters are solid white without a pattern to consider, contrast can also come in the form of a colorful or intricate backsplash like Marrakesh.
- Blend: If you prefer your backsplash to blend in with your countertop, something more subtle that’s closer to the color of the counter is ideal. This is the way to go if you want your countertop to be the star of the show, with your backsplash as more of a supporting actor. A simple, white or off-white backsplash tile is perfect for this look. Consider the light color options of Paloma or Touch.
- Undertone: Finally, you could choose a backsplash tile in a color that matches the predominant undertone in your quartz’s pattern. For instance, a marble-look white quartz with a light grey veining pattern pairs beautifully with a light grey backsplash such as Bare or Smooth porcelain tile.
