Complimentary Granite Counters for White Cabinets
Atlantis is a beautiful, light colored granite from India. It contains some dark brown speckling and has wonderful veins of gold, orange, and grey that provides some very interesting movement. This granite kitchen countertops choice is a fantastic compliment for white cabinets and will give a focal point to an otherwise neutral color scheme. A beige or white backsplash will pair perfectly with Atlantis granite counters. The brown accents of the countertop create a cozy, inviting area that’s great for Sunday breakfasts with the family or friendly gatherings. With Atlantis, since it is a creamy color, it actually helps to conceal crumbs. Hardwood floors and stainless appliances are great counterparts as well.
Granite Countertops for White Cabinets and Dark Floor
Bianco Romano, also known as Romano Dream, and Bianco Toscano is a greyish, white granite from Brazil with exquisite quartz and burgundy deposits throughout the slab. Its slightly off white color makes it the perfect stone to pull together a kitchen with white cabinets and a dark floor. The traditional Tuscan design with predominantly white features looks fantastic with the Bianco Romano counters, which has an aged appearance. It especially compliments golden handles and faucets. The white backsplash lets these kitchen countertops be the central focus of your kitchen.
Dark Blue Granite Counters with White Cabinets
Blue Night, also known as Blue Fantasy or Blue Starlight, is a majestic, black Brazilian granite with an abundance of white veining that will pair very attractively with white cabinets. These dark countertops truly give the area character by providing a wonderful contrast to white cabinets and will make your kitchen the design focal point of your house. Since Blue Night is a black and white natural stone, it looks great with stainless steel appliances. You also have the luxury of selecting either a light or dark backsplash, as both can look good depending on how much natural light your kitchen receives. A black dishwater breaks up the white cabinets nicely and compliments the kitchen’s color scheme.
Light Brown Granite Counters with White Cabinets
For another great look, consider going with Giallo Napole, which is a consistent, off-white granite with light gold highlights and dark burgundy flecks. Because of the dark areas in the stone, you have the option to add brown and/or black accent items around your kitchen to enhance your white cabinets. Soft lighting and hardwood floors will also pair great with Giallo Napole, to create a warm and inviting kitchen. Your options for backsplashes can range from dark brown, tan, white, or even grey. Black cabinet handles and sink faucet can provide contrast against the white farm sink and cabinets. Since the kitchen is flushed with natural light, adding darker accent elements won’t cause the space to seem constricted.

If you’re seeking a sophisticated look to go along with your white cabinets, Ilhabella granite counters can be the right choice for you.

Using Ilhabella in your kitchen with white cabinets can deliver a pure and pristine design that will be fantastic for adding regal accent pieces such as the crystal overhang lights that we see suspended above this kitchen’s island. Adding a different backsplash to a section of the kitchen is a great design concept to keep things fresh and pull the room together. White paneling over the refrigerator helps to makes the room look spacious.
