There are many choices to be made when creating or renovating a new kitchen, from choosing the design of the kitchen to deciding which worktop material is ideal for your lifestyle. The colour palette, however, will be one of the most important choices you make for your kitchen design.

Your kitchen’s colour scheme has the potential to change how people see the room as a whole and how they feel while using it. Even if you don’t want to have a completely white kitchen, you may have already thought of a colour scheme that includes a white worktop. 67% of members of the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) say white is their favourite color.

The colour white is the epitome of a blank canvas since it goes with so many different architectural and design styles. It gives you the freedom to express your creativity in terms of interior design and offers flexibility for people who frequently change the appearance of their kitchen. White is the colour of purity and timeless style, so it makes sense that  kitchen countertops and white cabinets are popular choices.

The appearance of the same shade of white can differ depending on the material when choosing white worktops. For instance, white laminate worktops frequently have a creamier appearance. Due of its yellow overtones, warmer whites will seem darker.

However, because they frequently have a colder white with a blue or grey undertone, marble and granite offer a more “natural stone” white. To the unaided eye, cool whites will appear lighter and brighter. However, there are many options available when it comes to quartz worktops, where there is much more control over the final colours and patterns.

Natural quartz frequently has a large number of impurities and is typically clear or grey in colour. Therefore, it might be challenging to produce a highly pure white quartz countertop when quartz and resin are combined. But our manufacturing specialists have been delighted to take on this task.
