Pop the champagne because it’s 2020! The start of a new decade brings so many new and exciting ventures upon us.

Here at Michigan Kitchen Distributors, we’ve noticed that white countertops have become a huge new trend and we’re loving it! So, perhaps you decide to remodel your kitchen and start the new year with a new white countertop? In this blog post, we will be discussing the top seven most popular white countertop materials. Keep reading to learn more! 


Granite Countertops

Granite is an incredible option for a countertop. Due to its relatively low maintenance up-keep and tough exterior, it’s a great option for any kitchen. Since it is so durable, it is a great kitchen counter option if you have kids or a high-traffic kitchen. It’s also resistant to grime and bacteria since it is not a porous material (making it also great for spill cleanups). These countertops are also extremely tough so hot temperatures, dropped plates, and food spills have nothing on this material! Getting the right cut of granite is the key to a successful kitchen counter, which is where Michigan Kitchen Distributors comes in. We will help you source, customize, and install your granite countertop correctly. Once you’re done with us you’ll have a full expansive countertop that is so beautiful it will look like a piece of art!  


White Mist

White mist granite is a type of finely-grained granite that features highly contrasted onyx and alabaster. It has shades of white, grey, and black in it so it can match almost any kitchen color scheme. It gives off a very natural and earthy appeal while still giving you the full aesthetic of a clean white countertop. Since it has mixtures of other colors and is not a pure white, this countertop material can hide most signs of normal wear and tear, so if you’re looking for a long term material, white mist is a great option. Not only can it be used for countertops but you can use it in backspaces, walls, and floors, making it an extremely versatile material!  


White Ice

White ice granite is similar to white mist but the main difference is that these countertops don’t have as strong of a concentrated pattern. While there are still shades of grey, white, and black they’re a bit more spread out and have more of a modern and dramatic look to them. This countertop looks fabulous in kitchens and can be used for bathroom countertops and commercial spaces. In addition to indoor spaces, this granite countertop material can also be used outside too. 


Quartz Countertops

Bring the natural beauty of the elements inside your home with quartz countertops. Quartz countertops can be easily customized to your desired wants while still providing a strong and sturdy base. Quartz comes in so many colors and even though we’re discussing white countertops, you can easily customize a shade to fit your kitchen seamlessly. So whether you’re wanting a stark white or wanting something with more of a cream or eggshell finish, you can easily find a shade. Quartz has a luxurious feel to it but don’t let it’s beauty fool you, it’s still a highly durable material. It offers the same durability that granite and concrete does, so also another great option for family kitchens. You will find that it won’t crack or chip easily either. Staining is a non-issue as well since it is a non-porous material. Using soap and water can easily wash away any grime and bacteria that may have formed, so cleanups are a breeze! 



This form of white countertop has more of a marble appearance to it with black, white, and grey colors to it. It’s a wonderful look for modern spaces and gives your kitchen or bathroom a sense of luxury. Since it is made out of quartz it is extremely durable and would be a wonderful addition to any space. 



Lyra features chromatic colors that give a very visually appealing appearance. These colors are still muted but the pattern is not as bold as some of the previous materials that we’ve noted. It features gray veins on a white background that is simple yet still interesting. It’s an elegant blend of color that allows it to match any color scheme and design. Its simplistic look gives it an elegant touch. 


Calacatta Gold 

If you’re looking for a marble appearance for your countertop, calacatta gold is your best option. It boasts the look of elegant white marble giving your space that clean and luxurious appeal. This material hosts light and dark shades of gray against a white background that allows it to blend in and stand out in any room. 


Solid Surface Countertops 

If you’re looking for a countertop that will allow you complete customization, solid surface countertops are your best option. These countertops are made out of acrylic or polyester resin materials. Since they are so moldable, they can be made into nearly any shape, size, pattern, or texture that you want. Your space will truly be unique and one-of-a-kind when you utilize solid surface countertops.

As if solid surface countertops weren’t great enough, they’re certified NSF by Greengaurd. Meaning that it doesn’t release toxins in the air. These counters are sturdy material and are easy to fix, so if it gets chipped or scratched, a light sanding should do the trick. 


Ice Queen

Ice queen solid surface countertops are perfect if you want to achieve a space that is minimalistic and clean. These countertops are purely white with specks of clear stones in them giving them a natural yet simplistic aesthetic. They match any space and due to their pure color, they can make your space look larger. So, just as the name suggests these countertops are the perfect shade of white and will make any space look like a palace. 


White Quartz

Solid surface white quartz countertops are both practical and beautiful. Similarly to ice queen solid surface countertops, white quartz gives that same seamless look to your space and can visually extend the room, making it appear larger than it already is. These counters have the same look as natural quartz but are made out of different materials, so they are a more cost-effective materials if you’re on a budget.
