One of the top trends for kitchen renovations is white cabinets. Look at any interior design themed social media account and you will be sure to see beautiful and modern white cabinets in every post. White does not need to just be a pure stark shade, but can also include slightly off-white shades like alabaster or eggshell. 

White is one of those shades that seems like it can go with anything, but this could be a curse not a blessing. Too many options can make kitchen redesigns extremely overwhelming. 

Our top pick for kitchen countertop material is granite, a naturally found stone that is stain, scratch and heat resistant. As a natural stone that could be quarried from multiple locations around the world, there are many designs to pick from. 

With the seemingly endless possibilities of white cabinetry mixed with the many granite patterns available, it may seem impossible to pick a stone for your next kitchen remodel. Check out 25 granite swatches from our collection that could go great with white cabinets in almost any home decor style.


1. Absolute Black Select

This is a timeless sleek dark stone. The design of this stone is without patterning, and is simply a consistent black slab. This is an incredible, elegant stone that, mixed with white cabinetry, could be a great new addition to your home. 

This combination would look amazing in a multitude of styles, from more traditional and vintage styles to a polar opposite sleek modern design. Pair this with dark hardware on the cabinetry to help tie the two colors together even more. Black and white are total opposites, but a color scheme of the two are always in style. 

 

2. Alaska White

You don’t need lots of colors to make a statement with your kitchen’s stone features. Alaska White is monotone, with lots of grey, white and beige. These colors pair together to make a stunning stone that can pair with just about anything, but will especially look great next to white cabinetry. 

By pairing this stone with white cabinetry, you open the door to adding decor of just about any shade. For example, a purple pop will look fantastic next to these neutral stones and cabinetry. The same could be said for teal, navy, even more unique shades like pink. 

 

3. Altair

Want to make a statement? Consider this stone, which features bold veining of gold running through a black background. This is not a subtle stone, your guests will not miss the thick, snakelike veining, especially when paired with white cabinetry.
