White is a magical color. It represents purity and perfection, confidence and cleanliness. When used correctly, it can complement any other color or quickly become the center of attention, delivering a “wow factor” few other colors can touch.
It also lends light to rooms, makes small spaces appear larger than they are and can be easily incorporated into both classic and contemporary decor.
On the other hand, it can also be a mistake to decorate with white. White granite counters, for example, can show stains, clash with your cupboards and create awkward color combinations if you are not careful about how you incorporate them into your kitchen.
If you are considering installing white granite counters in your kitchen–with all their beauty and durability–consider the following three questions and then stop by and talk to the experts at Arch City Granite & Marble:
Can you live with the drama? There is nothing boring about white. If you are going to invest in white granite counters, you are investing in a dramatic look in your kitchen. Whether the drama created by the white granite counters makes you feel comfortable or uncomfortable depends largely on your other decorating choices. But one thing is for sure: White will deliver dramatic feelings.?
Can you keep your counters looking clean? While it is true that white granite counters are incredibly easy to care for–mostly because all granite counters are durable and easy to clean–it is also true that white counters will show dirt, dust, smears and smudges more than any other color of granite countertops. So while it is easy to keep your white granite countertops clean, it may take a little more work to keep them looking clean all the time.
Are you creative? One of the great things about white granite countertops in your kitchen is that they provide you with a plethora of decorating ideas. Your white countertops can be incorporated into both classic and contemporary designs. They work well with sleek, cosmopolitan cupboards as well as hand-crafted, traditional cupboards. In other words, once your white granite countertops are installed, you will probably be inspired to change your kitchen’s design every few years. So get ready to be creative.
