White kitchen worktops are a popular choice thanks to their timeless appeal and clean look. They’re known for reflecting natural light, making your kitchen feel brighter and look more spacious. When looking to add one to your kitchen, there are various style options available, and it can be challenging to choose a look that you’ll love for years to come. In this blog, we take you through some of our top tips and style suggestions for making white worktops work in your home.

White on White

For the ultimate modern aesthetic, combine a stunning surface like our White Glass Effect worktop with pure white units and gold handles to create a contemporary kitchen. Alternatively, for a sleek look, combine white kitchen worktops with white handless units.


If the all-white look is too bright for you, why not try a two-tone kitchen? Combine light grey cabinets with a glistening white surface, like our Pure White worktops, and matching splashbacks for a minimalistic look that will last for years to come.

Add a Splash of Colour

A white worktop can sometimes be seen as a dull and cold option. To combat this, incorporate some colour into your kitchen to bring it to life. Start with coloured accessories, such as small appliances and decorative items like bowls and fruit — this will add depth and layers to your kitchen. Alternatively, if you have a kitchen island, try painting the cabinets a bright colour to break up the room and add some character to your cooking space.

Add Patterns

Patterns are a great way to add character and complement white kitchen worktops. Splashbacks in particular are a stylish and practical way to do this. Our Marble Veneto Zenith splashbacks are a beautiful choice that gives your kitchen a luxurious and modern look. If you want to enhance your white worktop with a pattern, make sure you browse our range of patterned kitchen splashbacks for a wide variety of styles.

Warm Up With Wood

If an all-over white kitchen isn’t for you, try adding wooden features to the room for a warmer feeling. You can do this easily by adding wooden shelving, stools and accessories. Alternatively, if you are planning a larger update to your kitchen, consider adding a wooden worktop on a breakfast bar or kitchen island for a contemporary mixed-material look.

Over the last three weeks, we asked our customers to send in photos of their kitchen worktops for a chance to win a KitchenAid Mixer worth £400! With over 150 entries of your stunning kitchens, our expert panel of Worktop Express judges had their work cut out for them as they looked through our customers’ amazing kitchen transformations.

Two of our favourites were James, who combined Oak and Earthstone worktops in his kitchen with patterned splashbacks to create a modern feeling with mixed materials, and Sandra, who paired our Brazilia Quartz Laminate Worktops with white units to create a stunning monochrome kitchen.

Narrowing it down to the final two before our Facebook fans would crown the ultimate winner was difficult, but the judges finally decided on Joanna and Rosie’s kitchens. Joanna’s striking kitchen mixes our sustainable Bamboo worktop with contrasting black cabinet doors and stainless-steel accessories, and Rosie, our second finalist, achieved her look by using our opulent White Marble solid laminate worktops paired with turquoise cabinet doors to add a pop of colour to her kitchen.

With only one winner, our Facebook fans decided Rosie’s kitchen would be worthy of the KitchenAid Mixer. Congratulations Rosie! We love Rosie’s open-plan kitchen, and how well she has blended the kitchen and dining area with a bold contrast of colours. The pendant lights, plants and artwork bring this open-plan kitchen to life.
