7 white granite countertops for a modern lookSeptember 13, 2021
With an industry worth around $30 billion in the US, granite is one of the most popular countertop materials on the market. This makes sense when you consider that it's a durable 6-7 on the Mohs hardness scale. White granite countertops are therefore long-lasting and appealing for many years.
Today, we're going to take a look at some white granite styles that MSI has to offer. Read on to learn about seven timeless slab designs that you, your family, and your guests are sure to love.
The first of our white granite colors is Pitaya White. Note that 'white granite' colors are not necessarily pure white but are usually mixed colors in gray or beige tones. In the case of Pitaya, the slab doesn't just have light gray accents but is also littered with appealing black freckles.
The dark speckles are an amazing way to keep your countertops interesting and unique. They also have brightly polished finishes so that the dots stand out under any type of lighting.
Colonial White is similar to Pitaya, but it's geared towards kitchen designers who prefer warmer hues. The creamy white backdrop is almost yellow and may appear as such in the right lighting. However, it also has little flecks of lighter hues throughout it for a more organic appearance. Like Pitaya White, this option has dark specks scattered throughout the slab. However, rather than a pure high-contrast black, Colonial White features larger brown dots. They fit in perfectly with the warm aesthetic of this countertop option.
Another of our timeless countertop materials, Arctic Valley granite, is grayer than it is any other color. While it has a dark white background, the organic gray patterns and delicate swirls give it a unique appeal. This high-variation slab can also be used as a backsplash tile rather than simply a countertop. Since it contains black speckles within its design, you may like to pair an Arctic Valley backsplash with a Pitaya White countertop. However, there are a wide variety of backsplash/countertop combination possibilities, so keep an open mind and decide which you personally like best.
All of our stone countertop options can be used as backsplashes, but there are other applications for them as well. They make great accent walls, fireplace surrounds, and even flooring. Avalon White works perfectly in all of these locations. These kitchen countertops feature a plethora of high-contrast hues. The creamy white background is soft and inviting, but the patterns are what make the slab stand out. Gray, brown, and black swirls are scattered across the slab for a unique contrast. Avalon White is an amazing countertop or backsplash choice in rooms that lean into vintage or antique decor. Its traditional marble-like appearance makes it pair well with soft lighting and heavy wooden cabinets.
Looking for something a little more contemporary for your kitchen remodeling? Want to lean into icy-cool hues that look awesome under fluorescent lighting? Bianco Romano is the answer. This slab is primarily a cool white color that's so white it's almost icy. It has thin gray veining to provide the appearance of a natural iceberg. It also has tiny black specks throughout the slab for contrast and a little extra personality. Bianco Romano is also popular because it's subtle. All of the veins, speckles, and accents are small. It's the patterns that make the slab one of the more interesting options in MSI's inventory.
While it's far from black granite, Gray Nuevo is the white granite countertop option that contains the most black. The creamy white backdrop has patches of dark browns and grays throughout. However, the black patches and speckles provide even more contrast than the many other hues. This timeless slab is perfect for waterfall islands because of its unique appeal. Viewers will never truly know everything about the slab because of its intricate design. There will always be something new to notice. If you're considering engineered quartz vs. granite natural stone, you may enjoy Gray Nuevo. While it has the appearance of a quartz slab, it's completely natural and just as durable. For all of these reasons, it makes an excellent addition to any kitchen.
New River White
Finally, New River White is a marble-look granite that's both white and gray. While it appears cream-colored under bright lighting, it also can look gray from a distance or in dimmer rooms. However, the best thing about this slab is the riverlike pattern that it boasts. You will find long, thick veining in a variety of browns. These colors provide excellent contrast with the white patches scattered across the countertop.
